California — Her divorce from Brad Pitt has forced Angelina Jolie to change her career path, moving away from directing. In recent years, the Oscar winner has moved her focus from acting to behind the camera, but now she has admitted that a “change in my family situation” led her to focus on “shorter jobs”.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the mother of six said, “I love directing, but I had a change in my family situation that’s not made it possible for me to direct for a few years.” “I needed to just do shorter jobs and be home more, so I kind of went back to doing a few acting jobs. That’s really the truth of it.”

Jolie has six children with Pitt: Maddox, 19, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 14, and 12-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox. In 2014, Jolie and Pitt got married after 12 years together, but in September 2016 they announced that they had broken up. It has been four years since they filed for divorce, but the duo have yet to reach an agreement, with much of the discussion remaining around custody.
