Angelina Jolie to take year off to spend time with family
(londonnet.co.uk) - Angelina Jolie is taking a year off to spend time with her family. The actress, who has four children with lover Brad Pitt, plans to finish filming Wanted in the Czech Republic and then take a break from Hollywood. She said: "I'm working this summer. I'm in Prague for a few months, then I take two months off, then I work for two months. And then I take a year off. "I don't want to live inside a box. I will be smart, but I will lead a very bold life, and I will learn about the world." Asked if she would be spending the time off with her family, she replied: "Yes." Brad and Angelina - who have two adopted sons five-year-old Maddox and three-year-old Pax Thien, adopted daughter two-year-old Zahara and the couple's daughter together, Shiloh, who turns one on Sunday (27.05.07) - appeared at the Cannes Film Festival for the world premiere of A Mighty Heart on Monday (21.05.07). Angelina stars as Mariane Pearl - widow of murdered Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl - while Brad's company Plan B produced the film. The couple plan to remain in France for several more days while Brad attends the premiere of Ocean's Thirteen. Angelina, 31, also revealed she recently upgraded her pilot licence and is looking forward to flying her family around the world. She said: "Brad has his pilot's licence and I just got my instrument rating, so we're moving forward with that but we haven't had a lot of time because of the kids and with Pax coming home. "I wouldn't fly the kids at this moment. I would only fly the kids if I had been actively flying for a few months and when I'm not at all rusty."
