"As Brad and I get older we're going to do fewer films," Jolie revealed. "I've been working for a long time, he's been working for a long time, we've had a nice run and don't want to be doing this our whole lives. There are a lot of other things to do."

Slideshow: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt (on this page) The 36-year-old actress confessed, "I don't love (acting) as much (as I did). I love being a mom," before adding that she doesn't plan to actually quit the Biz anytime soon.
Story: Was 'Potter' film appropriate for Jolie kids? "I've never not been grateful to be an actor, but I think when I was younger I needed (acting) more," Jolie said. "I was trying to question things in life so you find these characters that help you find things and grow."
And that's not all.
Story: Jolie's kids eat crickets 'like Doritos' "(Acting is) like being in therapy, in a way," the thesp continued. "You're drawn to certain roles because they question something about life, or about love, or about freedom. You ask these questions as you grow up: am I strong enough, am I sane enough? Do I understand love, do I understand myself? I'm older and I know who I am, and I'm less interested in the character helping me answer something than in being able to answer it for myself, as a woman, as an adult, with my family."
Instead of being in front of the camera, she definitely wants to spend more time behind it.
Story: Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt & Kids: Playtime in Malta! Jolie, who makes her directorial debut with the romance flick "In the Land of Blood and Honey," says she drew from her own experiences working with directors to help her during filming.
"I think I've learnt something from all of them, even the ones I didn't like," the actress said.
And as for the question she hears all the time about whether she and longtime love Brad Pitt will ever settle with their brood in one place, Jolie replied with her usual, "Home is wherever we are."
Story: Marriage for Pitt and Jolie? Maybe "I'm very bad at staying in one place," she elaborated. "I'm also bad at sitting still. I was a terrible student at school. But there's so much to explore in the world, so I love travel. If you can travel I think it's the best way to raise kids."
Her children Maddox, Zahara, Pax, Shiloh and twins Vivienne and Knox seem to love trotting the globe, too.
Story: Shiloh Jolie-Pitt Turns 5 in Style! "They are all learning about each others' cultures as well as being proud of their own. So it's not like just the boys get to do the Asian thing," Jolie dished. "They all have their flags over their beds and their individual pride. We owe Vietnam a visit, because Pax is due. Z wants to get back to Africa, and Shiloh, too. So everyone takes their turns in their country."
