Angelina Jolie is talking about retiring from acting.

"I will do some films and I am so fortunate to have the job, it's a really lucky profession to be a part of and I enjoy it," Angelina Jolie said recently, in an interview with Britain's Channel 4 News. "But if it went away tomorrow I would be very happy to be home with the children."

Really? When was the last time she stayed home alone for a few days with six children? I mean, she seems like a good mother and all. But I give her three days with any six children on the planet and I guarantee you she's suddenly chomping at the bit to do "Tomb Raider 3."

"I think I'm going to have to give up the acting as the kids hit the teenage years, anyway," she said. "Too much to manage at home."

Well, that makes sense. Six Hollywood teenagers can cause a lot of property damage, not to mention a potential fortune in bail money.

According to the Huffington Post, this isn't the first time Jolie has talked about quitting the business. "Acting helped me as I was growing up. It helped me learn about myself, helped me travel, helped me understand life, express myself, all those wonderful things," Jolie said in a 2010 interview with Vanity Fair. "So I'm very, very grateful, it's a fun job. It's a luxury. Look, I'm at work today in the middle of Venice. But I don't think I'll do it much longer."

Not if you keep making movies in Venice with Johnny Depp that bomb.

Jolie's oldest son, Maddox, is now 11. Jolie is currently working on the movie "Maleficent," hitting theaters March 14, 2014. She even brought her daughter Vivienne Jolie-Pitt into the mix, as the 4-year-old will reportedly have a "minor role" in the film.

Jolie is also said to have a role in the upcoming "Kung Fu Panda 3" and reportedly reviewed a script for "Salt 2."

She may need some time off for a wedding, as partner Brad Pitt recently said the pair will get married "soon."
