It was only last year that Brad Pitt claimed he would be giving up acting for directing in the space of three years as he approaches the 50 mark.
And now his fiancée Angelina Jolie has vowed the same thing.
The Tomb Raider star has now said that she too envisages giving up being in front of the camera so that she can spend more time with their brood of children.
Jolie, 37, has now also spoken out to admit she can't see herself spending that much longer concentrating on her movie career.
She told Channel 4 news: 'I think I'm going to have to give up the acting as the kids hit the teenage years, anyway, too much to manage at home.
'I have enjoyed being an actress. I am so grateful to the job and I have had great experiences and I have even be able to tell stories and be a part of stories that mattered and I have done things for fun, but...'
The Salt star added: 'I will do some films and I am so fortunate to have the job, it's a really lucky profession to be a part of and I enjoy it.
'But if it went away tomorrow I would be very happy to be home with the children. I wake up in the morning as a mum and I turn on the news like everybody else and I see what's happening and I want to be part of the world in a positive way.'
