Angelina Jolie may have found directing an ordeal at the time - telling CBS News recently that calling the shots for her directorial debut 'In The Land Of Bloody And Honey' led to an "emotional breakdown" - but time to reflect has evidently turned the partner of Brad Pitt onto the idea of doing more.
Jolie's proclamations came to E! Online at the Producer's Guild Awards, which saw 'The Artist' run away with the top honor of best film. She said "I still love acting-if I can find those roles that matter. But if I don't, it's nice to be able to shine the spotlight on another actress you think is extremely talented and give her the spotlight." Selfless words indeed from Jolie, and a stark difference from the following quote, given recently to Cbs after the completion of 'In The Land Of Blood And Honey:' "I didn't plan to become a director, and I still have trouble saying I'm a director, I just wanted to tell this story and I ended up, by default, being the director. It was a pleasure but I wonder if it would be a pleasure with another cast and crew, and a subject matter that wasn't so special."
She does have acting roles coming up however, not least playing the Sleeping Beauty's nemesis in the film 'Maleficent,' something she described as "neat for my kids."
