Oscar-winner Angelina Jolie has officially confirmed that she plans to retire from acting, and wants to focus on her career as a filmmaker

In an exclusive interview with DuJour magazine, 39-year-old said that she "absolutely" planned to move behind the camera and that she doesn't like being the centre of attention.

In another interview with BBC Radio Five Live, she also said that her role in upcoming biopic Cleopatra may well be her last. "It's 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 – in a great way. What could you do beyond that one?"

The mother of six's third film, Unbroken, is set to be released on Christmas Day.
