Angelina Jolie: I'm Ready to "Fade Away"
Angelina Jolie says she plans to give up acting to be a full-time mother.
"I don't plan to keep acting very long. I'm ready to do a few things now and fade away and get ready to be a grandma one day," she tells BBC News in a new interview. "I'm not so worried that I want to keep this pace up and try to be something and be a celebrity."

"I hopefully won't be needing to do that later in my life anyway," she adds.
The 33-year-old Changeling star -- who says she won't work for a year after she returns to work in February -- stresses, "I don't think I'll ever say I'm never, ever gonna work because maybe there's that interesting project where I feel creative.
