Although his career has never been the most prolific in Hollywood, Angelina Jolie He has been dosing his appearances on screen like never before for a long time. After the bad reception to Oceanfront, the film he directed and starred in alongside Brad Pitt In 2015, the actress and director has only signed one feature (They took him, 2017) and has acted in four live-action films, including Maleficent: Mistress of evil and Eternals (2021), his debut in the Marvel Universe.

“I’m still in transition as a person,” explains the actress. And she continues: “These days I feel a little exhausted. I haven’t been myself for a decade, Although I don’t want to give details about that.”
Thus, Jolie made the decision seven years ago to act in fewer films. And with an important condition, too: “she only accepted jobs that did not require long takes.” “I had a lot of things to heal from. I still have to regain my balance,” he explains.
