Is Angelina Jolie Quitting Acting?

Angelina Jolie's next big role could be her last.

After confirming she's been working on a film about Cleopatra, the Oscar winner hinted that it may be the final movie in which she stars.

"We've been working on it," she told BBC Radio Five Live. "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."

Adding that the role hasn't been an easy one to take on, Angelina added, "[Cleopatra]'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?"

The actress hasn't exactly kept quiet about wanting to step away from acting, though.

Angelina, who is having major success with her latest film Maleficent, said at a press conference in May that she wanted to give up acting to focus on directing and humanitarian work.

"I've had a wonderful career and I'm very happy to have had all the opportunities to tell stories and work for as long as I have," she said. "I'm sure there will be more films but I am happy I am able to be selective and have fun with characters like this but I would like to focus on writing and directing and above all I would like to focus more on my work with the UN."

We can't help but hope she changes her mind.
