Angelina Jolie hinted during an interview with BBC Radio 5 Live that she may retire from acting after starring as Cleopatra on the big screen.


Jolie, who has been attached to the Cleopatra role since 2010, was promoting her box office hit Maleficent when she confirmed that she will play the Queen of the Nile.

“We’ve been working on it,” said the Oscar winner. “There’s been lots of different ideas of directors and lots of different discussions. The script has been written by Eric Roth, who is a dear friend and a brilliant writer.”

Of the role, Jolie noted, “She’s complicated, it’s complicated to get this one right. I think we’re getting there… It’s getting close. I imagine the preparation for it is going to be big.”

“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?” said Jolie, suggesting a possible retirement.

The actress further expressed her desire to eventually give up acting to focus on directing and her humanitarian work with the United Nations.
