Why did she say that her ‘passion for acting’ has diminished?
Angelina Jolie has lived multiple lives in this lifetime. Throughout the years, we’ve seen her personal life transcend in different ways. We’ve seen her rise back up from her battle with depression, her dedication to motherhood, and her passion for humanitarian work that got her an honorary damehood in 2014. But fans are dying to know when they can finally see the Maleficent star back on the screen.
Well, she’ll be in the upcoming Marvel film The Eternals set to premiere around February 2021. She’ll be returning to her action movie roots alongside Salma Hayek. But apparently, there’s a chance that this might be one of the last movies she’ll ever do. Here’s why.
Angelina Thinks She Might Want To Start Doing Other Things
In her 60 Minutes interview, Angelina told Bob Simon that she loves being a part of films that mean something. “It suddenly bridges this cultural gap where I can suddenly make friends in [other] countries because they saw a fun movie and they liked it,” she said.
But when asked if she wanted to do more films, she hesitated before saying yes. “I’ll do some more. I don’t know how much longer,” the Girl Interrupted actress said. “I don’t love it as much as I used to.”
The Lara Croft: Tomb Raider star feels like she’s currently at a stage in her life where she wants to start doing other things. The 45-year-old actress sees a lot of possibilities in the years to come. “I feel that I’m gonna hit my stride in my fifties,” Angelina told British Vogue.
“Though we were on the trampoline the other day, and the children said, ‘No, Mom, don’t do that. You’ll hurt yourself.’ And I thought, ‘God, isn’t that funny?’ There was a day I was an action star, and now the kids are telling me to get off the trampoline because I’ll hurt myself.”
The Death Of Her Mother May Have Caused Her To Lose Her Passion For Acting
Angelina admitted that she lost some of her passion for acting when her mother passed away in 2007. Now, she’s left wondering how much of her love for acting was inspired by her mother and how much of it is purely hers. However, the actress remains open to wherever life leads her.
So we’re sure we’ll still see more of Angelina after The Eternals. She’s also starring in an upcoming American Western thriller film called Those Who Wish Me Dead. It’s set to premiere in May 2021. We guess 2021 is going to be Angelina Jolie’s year.
