JOLIE is working as hard as she can so she can
quit to become a full-time mum and pilot before
she gets bored with acting. The TOMB RAIDER star
is considering early retirement because she wants
to spend more time travelling the world with an
ever-growing brood of children. She says, "I know

going to be a mum and my acting career is going
to fizzle to very little. I love to act and I
love to do films but these great projects come

something with my life that's actually practical.
And I can see a thing built and I can't be misinterpreted.'"
