Angelina Jolie, the estranged wife of Hollywood actor Brad Pitt has revealed that she never wanted to become an actress but was pushed into it by her mother.
The ace actress disclosed in a post on her Instagram page on Wednesday that it took her so many years to realize that she didn’t want to be an actress but a writer or perhaps a director.
“I became an actress because my mom wanted me to become an actress,” her post read
She added that her desire to impact lives through humanitarian projects and politics were also ignited around the same time.
“It took me until my mid-30s to realize I actually didn’t. I actually wanted to write and direct and be more involved in politics and humanitarian issues,” a portion of the post said.
Angelina Jolie has been in the news children for her remarkable humanitarian efforts towards children and the vulnerable in war-torn countries.
However, she has recently made headlines over a turf war with ex-husband Brad Pitt over custody of their six children after their split.
Earlier this year Angelina was reportedly scolded by the LA County Superior Court and told to allow the children access to Brad or risk losing them.
