Angelina Jolie Reveals Family Secrets and Opens Up About Her Career

The actress opened up about her six kids and career.

In fact, instead of focusing on garnering screen-time, the Oscar winner said right now, she's "happy to be home."

"I want to really focus on my children, doing the best I can to guide and protect them before they are out of the house," she told Vogue magazine for its November cover story. "These are their most important years.”

“We travel often to Asia, Africa, Europe, where they were born,” she said. “The boys know they’re from Southeast Asia, and they have their food and their music and their friends, and they have a pride particular to them. But I want them to be just as interested in the history of their sisters’ countries and Mommy’s country so we don’t start dividing. Instead of taking Z on a special trip, we all go to Africa [where she was born] and we have a great time."

“When she was sitting on the floor with her U.N. cap writing her notes as she was talking to someone, I was flashing on myself fifteen years ago and thinking, I know that moment,” Jolie reflected. "[But] the kids that don’t want to go don’t go."

Because of her commitments at home and abroad, Jolie said she doesn't see herself acting forever. However, that's not to say she's not appreciative of the life it's afforded her.

"What a crazy job!” she marveled. “I’m almost enjoying it more now that I see it as something I’ve been fortunate to be part of. Maybe in the next few years I’ll finish being in front of the camera. I’ll be happier behind it."
