Jolie not retiring

Angelina Jolie has denied she has plans to retire from Hollywood, insisting she still wants to make movies.

The Maleficent star has stepped behind the camera in recent years to direct films, and her third movie, Unbroken, is due for release later this year.

Jolie has now sparked fevered rumours she is planning to retire from acting, after telling the BBC her upcoming role as Cleopatra is "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".

However, the actress is adamant she is not turning her back on Hollywood and will continue making movies.

"Brad (Pitt) has known for a while that I love my humanitarian work and I love directing and writing so he has seen this coming I think," she told British newspaper The Independent.

"But I am not retiring. I will do one or two movies if they come, the right ones, but I think that I have been in front of the camera for so long in my life and it's nice to step back."
