With six children at home, Angelina Jolie says her days as an actress are numbered.

"I don't plan to keep acting very long," she tells the BBC. "I'm ready to do a few things now and fade away and get ready to be a grandma one day."

Jolie, 33, currently starring in The Changeling, says she plans to "work for a few months" in February, then take a year off.

"I won't work again probably for another year," she says. "So maybe it'll be once a year, then maybe it'll be once every three years."

She adds: "I have a lot of children. I have a big responsibility to make sure that they're growing right and that they have got us there for them."

Of course, to help make ends meet, there's also another wage earner in the household: Her partner Brad Pitt, 44.

"I'm not so worried that I want to keep this pace up and try to be something and be a celebrity and be a successful actress forever," she tells the BBC. "It's great, but everything comes in seasons. I hopefully I won't be needing to do that later in my life."
