Angelina Jolie to give up acting

Angelina Jolie would "absolutely" give up acting.  

The award-winning actress - who recently directed World War Two film, 'Unbroken' - has admitted that she has always felt "uncomfortable" in front of the camera.  

When asked if she'd ever give up acting, she said: "Absolutely."  

She added to Du Jour magazine: "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."  

Meanwhile, the 38-year-old actress and director recently admitted that "it's not easy" directing herself and husband, Brad Pitt, in 'By the Sea'.  

She previously said: "The tricky thing is directing myself and directing Brad. It's hard, dramatic material, and we're balancing.  

"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."  

Despite wanting to focus on directing, Angelina revealed that she plans to star in "a few more" movies before switching to directing full time.  

Discussing her future as an actress, she said: "I'll do a few more."
