It seems that famous actress Angelina Jolie is willing to give up acting and focus more on her career as a movie director. Moreover, Angelina claimed that she actually feels uncomfortable in front of the cameras.
So, Angelina Jolie is much happier directing films. “I’ve never been comfortable as an actor; I’ve never loved being in front of the camera,” the star claimed in a recent interview with Du Jour magazine. “I didn’t ever think I could direct, but I hope I’m able to have a career at it because I’m much happier,” she added.
Angelina Jolie made her directorial debut with the movie In The Land of Blood And Honey, back in 2011. It seems that she loved this experience so much that she is actually ready to give up acting completely. So, when being asked if she would give up acting, the star said that she is absolutely ready to do so.
“When it comes to being a director, it’s so new for me and I’m quite shy about it because I’m still learning. I’ll feel better when audiences start to see it. I think we’re on the right track, but I’m not breathing easy just yet,” Angelina claimed.
Even though she may give up acting in the future, fans can still see their favorite star in the love story By The Sea. Angelina also directs this movie and she actually stars in it alongside her real life husband Brad Pitt. Of course, this will be a really interesting project. “The tricky thing is directing myself and directing Brad. It’s hard, dramatic material, and we’re balancing,” Angelina said regarding this movie.
By The Sea actually is a movie about a couple going through some difficulties. Consequently, Angelina claimed that friends asked her and Brad if they are crazy to do this project. However, it seems that the two are so confident in their relationship and in their acting skills that they have no issues in working together at this story.
On the other hand, Angelina has proved to be really committed when it comes to her work as a movie director, so we should definitely expect to see something great.
