Angelina Jolie was known to be rather wild before becoming a mother to her and husband Brad Pitt's six children, and although she is a lot more tamed now, the 39-year-old actress admits throughout her illustrious career she has never played by Hollywood's rules.

2014 has been a stellar year for Jolie, after starring in Disney's 'Maleficent, she recently premiered her latest directorial effort, the WWII movie 'Unbroken,' to rave reviews, and remains one of the only A-list actresses to make a successful transition to working behind the camera. But this career change was never in her long-term plans.

"I never had a plan in my life," the actress-turned-director recently told The Hollywood Reporter. "I do what I want to do. And if suddenly tomorrow I couldn't do anything, I could deal with that. I'd be happy at home being a mom."

Jolie is closing out the year by directing her latest flick 'By the Sea,' which she also wrote and stars in alongside her hubby Pitt. Filmed in Malta just after the couple tied the knot in August, the flick depicts a husband and wife trying to rekindle their dying marriage during a trip to Europe.

"Yes, we spent our honeymoon playing two people in a terrible marriage," she told the publication. "I'm sure a therapist would have a field day analyzing the films I choose to do. But it's been 10 years since Brad and I have worked together. It felt like it was time."

'By the Sea' is expected to hit theatres in 2015, and 'Unbroken' will open on Christmas Day.
