Angelina Jolie Dismisses Rumors of Quitting Acting

There have been rumors that Jolie would pack up her acting gear in favor of being a full-time director, mom, wife, humanitarian, etc.

However in a recent interview she told, "I'll do a few more. I'm about to direct something with Brad and myself in fact."

By the Sea, starring Jolie and real-life hubby Brad Pitt as a troubled married couple, has already started shooting in Malta.

"I'm happier when I get to put a camera on another actor and watch them do great work," she added.

Her second directorial venture, Unbroken, based on Laura Hillenbrand's book about Olympian turned POW and World War II hero Louis Zamperini, opens worldwide on Christmas Day.

And it's this passion for her projects like this one that got the film made in the first place, according to Zamperini's children, who got to know Jolie as she bonded with their dad before he passed away in July at the age of 97.

"With her star power and her unbelievable focus, she got this film on the fast track," said Luke, Louis' son.

"The night our father passed away," Cynthia said, "she and Brad came to our home and took such beautiful care of us. They cried with us, they held us; they made a soft place for us to fall. At one point I told her, ‘My father was really in love with you.' And she said, ‘I was in love with him!'"
