Angelina Jolie Wants To Quit Acting?

Angelina Jolie Wants To Quit Acting?

Angelina Jolie is moving toward doing more directing and is looking to step away from the acting game. She directed the movie “Unbroken” and now wants to stay behind the camera instead of in front of it.

When asked if she would ever give up acting, she said, “Absolutely. I’ve never been comfortable as an actor; I’ve never loved being in front of the camera. 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 has previously revealed how difficult it was directing herself and her husband Brad Pitt in their new movie “By The Sea”. She said, “The tricky thing is directing myself and directing Brad. It’s hard, dramatic material, and we’re balancing.”

She went on to say, “It’s a heavy film, and it’s not easy for us. But even as you struggle through it, you’re in the trenches together and you don’t expect it to be easy. We’re challenging each other and that’s a really good thing.”

She said that she isn’t quite done with acting just yet. She added, “I’ll do a few more.”

Star Magazine: Amal Clooney & Angelina Jolie Are At War

Star Magazine: Amal Clooney & Angelina Jolie Are At War

Star’s latest cover is a bit of a doozy in that they are claiming there is a feud between Amal Clooney and Angelina Jolie. Are people still reading “Star” magazine anymore?!?

From the magazine’s report:

When George and Amal Clooney celebrated their wedding for a second time on Oct. 25, there was once again two very noticeable guests missing — Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were nowhere to be seen!

After years of friendship, it seemed odd for the Fury star to miss his old buddy’s wedding — twice! And while he and Angelina were, indeed, filming By the Sea during the original Sept. 27 nuptials, a source close to their family says there’s more to the absence than just work commitment. “They were invited and Brad gave George his word he’d be there,” the insider explains. “But Angie vetoed the trip at the last minute. She wanted to pull a power play and dis Amal.”

Both women are invested in humanitarian work, but the first time they crossed paths, in London on June 12, Angie made it clear that Amal was persona non grata — and even blew her off when Amal requested a public greeting in front of photographers. “Angie feels competitive with Amal,” the source reveals. “She has been running from her past for years, and although she’s done a fabulous job reinventing herself, she continues to feel like an uneducated outsider.”

Of course, the victims in Angie and Amal’s standoff are Brad and George, whose friendship has unraveled in recent years, allegedly due to Angelina’s controlling behavior. “Angie has forbidden Brad to speak to George,” the insider reports. “She’s walled him off from so many of his old friends that Brad is getting fed up.”

One thing that they did get right was that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie didn’t make an appearance at George and Amal’s wedding, but everything else is completely off. Of course, George’s rep told Gossip Cop that the story was nothing but pure fiction.

Angelina Jolie Almost Bought Hemingway’s Typewriter As A Gift For Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie Almost Bought Hemingway's Typewriter As A Gift For Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie has a problem with buying gifts for her husband Brad Pitt in that what do you get for a man who basically has everything and then some? She tried to purchase one of Hemingway’s typewriters as a gift for her loving husband, but the seller put the kibosh on the deal entirely.

Angelina Jolie put down thousands of dollars on the last typewriter Ernest Hemingway used before killing himself … a $250,000 wedding gift for Brad Pitt … TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the couple tell us … Angelina’s agent got in touch with L.A. Police Commission President Steve Soboroff, who has an unbelievable typewriter collection, including Hemingway’s 1926 Underwood. Get this … Hemingway used the typewriter for his works in the late 1930s, and “For Whom the Bell Tolls” was published in 1940.

We’re told Jolie initially wanted to buy his Tennessee Williams typewriter but he wouldn’t sell it. So then the agent asked if Soboroff would sell one of the 2 Hemingway typewriters he owned … they offered a quarter of a million bucks and it was an offer he couldn’t refuse.

We’re told this summer the agent sent a deposit check from Angelina’s production company — Chivan Productions — for $11,000, but at some point she had a change of heart and cancelled the deal. She didn’t even ask for the money back, but we’re told the check was returned.

BTW … Soboroff has a number of epic typewriters, including those owned by the Unabomber, John Lennon, Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio, and he just snagged Jerry Siegel’s, who used the typewriter to create Superman!

Now that the deal has gone south, I am kind of curious about what she found to replace such an epic gift. What do you think?

Angelina Jolie Covers ‘Vanity Fair'; Talks Marriage & Possible Political Run

Angelina Jolie Covers 'Vanity Fair'; Talks Marriage & Possible Political Run

Angelina Jolie appears on the cover of the latest edition of “Vanity Fair” and inside, she talks about being married to Brad Pitt, their wedding vows and her political aspirations.

Her married life: “It does feel different. It feels nice to be husband and wife.”

Directing her new husband: “A few friends asked if we were crazy . . . [A film about] a married couple going through some difficulties . . . and I’m directing him.”

The vows the kids wrote for them: “They did not expect us never to fight, but they made us promise to always say, ‘Sorry,’ if we do. So they said, ‘Do you?,’ and we said, ‘We do!’ ”

The cake: “There was no cake, so Pax made a cake,” she said, referring to their second-oldest son. “The kids made little pillows for the rings, and Knox practiced [being a ringbearer] with an acorn that kept falling off the pillow. Brad’s mom went and picked some flowers and tied them up.”

She might run for office: “When you work as a humanitarian, you are conscious that politics have to be considered. Because if you really want to make an extreme change, then you have a responsibility.” Jolie then catches herself. “But I honestly don’t know in what role I would be more useful—I am conscious of what I do for a living, and that [could] make it less possible.” In di Giovanni’s last meeting with Jolie, however, Jolie’s opinion seems to have shifted. When directly asked if she sees herself pursuing a life in politics, diplomacy, or public service, Jolie says, “I am open.”
