Angelina Jolie says her days on the big screen may be numbered.
In a new interview with the BBC to promote her film, “Changeling,” Angelina said she will soon be shifting her focus from film to family.

“I don’t plan on acting very long,” Angelina said. “I’m ready to do a few things now and fade away and get ready to be a grandma one day.”
The mother of six said she plans on spending less and less time on the set and more time at home raising her brood with partner Brad Pitt.
“I’m not so worried that I want to try to keep up this pace and try to be a celebrity and try to be a successful actress forever. I think it’s nice to tell stories and be successful enough to tell the ones I want to tell, and to earn some money at the same time is great,” she continued. “But everything comes in seasons and I hopefully won’t be needing to do that later in my life.”
Before she calls it quits and leaves the Hollywood spotlight behind, Angelina has a slew of projects lined up.
Among the films currently in development for the actress are the historical drama “The Mercenary,” the stylistic “Sin City 2,” “Lara Croft Tomb Raider: III” and even the 2011 project “Pandamonium” – the follow-up to the animated hit “Kung Fu Panda.”
And once she’s done working on those projects, and several others that are in the works, Angelina is ready to walk away – albeit maybe not for good.
“I don’t think I’ll ever say, ‘I’m never ever going to work.’ Because maybe there’s that interesting project where I feel creative,” Angelina conceded. “But now, I haven’t worked for a year. I’ll work a few months in February and won’t work again for another year. So maybe, it’ll be once a year and then maybe once every three years.”
“I like being home a lot these days,” she concluded.
