Angelina Jolie, Sarajevo Film Festival 2011
If Angelina Jolie decided to quit making movies, would you miss her?

The 36-year-old is thinking about winding down her acting career, she suggested in an interview this weekend with the Financial Times. (Link is subscription only, but an article at Access Hollywood includes major excerpts.) She says she no longer loves acting "as much as I did," and that she and Brad Pitt would like to devote more time to raising their six kids and to their philanthropic work. "As Brad and I get older we're going to do fewer films. I've been working for a long time, he's been working for a long time," she said. "We've had a nice run and don't want to be doing this our whole lives. There are a lot of other things to do."

Jolie remains a huge star at the height of her international popularity, but if she did quit acting, would there be an international outcry? After all, despite having appeared in nine movies in the last five years, she seems to have been absent from the screen for quite a while.
