Angelina Jolie says she’s ready to make her return it to the big screen. Angelina Jolie Ready to Return to Acting After Taking a Year Off. Angelina Jolie stated: “I’m a little nervous but very excited”.
Angelina has kept a low profile over the last year following her split from Brad Pitt, she didn’t take on any new film projects and actually hasn’t acted on screen since 2015 By the Sea (2015).
But now the 42-year-old, mom of six is back to work promoting her new Netflix project “First They Killed My Father” at the Telluride Film Festival. The director got a standing ovation after the premiere of the movie and told The Hollywood Reporter this in a post screening interview.
Angelina Jolie quoted:
“Right now I don’t have anything to direct that I feel passionate about… so I’ll do some acting. I’ve taken over a year off now,
because of my family situation, to take care of my kids”.
While she hasn’t committed to anything yet it’s likely the long planned sequel to 2014’s Maleficent will be her next on-screen role.
Still Angelina told the crowd at Telluride that one day she will likely give up acting completely to focus on directing.
