The award-winning actress has recently hinted that Cleopatra might be her final role.
While making the rounds to promote Maleficent, Angelina Jolie has indicated her desire to scale back her acting career and focus on writing, directing and her United Nations humanitarian work.
At a new career high, as Maleficent opened atop the worldwide box office, the 37-year-old star has made further statements hinting at her definitive retirement from acting.
Questioned by the BBC on her upcoming performance as Cleopatra, Jolie commented that the role was particularly challenging.
“She’s complicated, it’s complicated to get this one right ... I imagine the preparation for it is going to be big,” she stated. “It’s one of those that you think maybe that’s the one you put everything into and that’s where you end it, that’s where you finish – in a great way. What could you do beyond that one?”
Last month, at a press conference in London, the actress hinted that she was planning to scale back her acting career: “I’m able to be selective and I would like to focus more on writing and directing; and above all I would like to focus more on my work with the UN and with PSVI (Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative).”
Angelina Jolie plays the title role in Maleficent, which opened last week. She is slated to star alongside her spouse Brad Pitt in a new project based on a script she wrote, and to play the historical figure Cleopatra in a feature directed by Ang Lee.
In the meantime, Jolie is putting the final touches on her second feature film as a director, Unbroken, which is set for US release on Dec 25. — AFP Relaxnews
