Angelina Jolie recently granted an interview with Vogue, where she offered insights into both her personal and professional evolution. The iconic actress, now 48 years old and an Oscar winner, discussed her deliberate step back from the world of cinema over the past seven years, opting for roles with shorter filming schedules.
In this candid conversation, Jolie opened up about feeling disconnected from herself for nearly a decade, describing it as an ongoing transitional phase of her life. Atelier Jolie, her burgeoning fashion venture, has emerged as a vital component of her journey toward self-discovery and rejuvenation. It serves as not only a creative outlet but also a source of community and therapeutic value for the star.
While she didn’t delve into the specific reasons for limiting her movie roles, Jolie did hint at her exploration of alternative creative outlets. Her new fashion house aligns with her reduced presence in the film industry.
Over a career spanning three decades, Jolie has captivated audiences with her memorable performances in acclaimed movies such as Girl, Interrupted (for which she won an Academy Award in 2000), Changeling, Maleficent, Salt, and Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Her most recent major Hollywood production was The Eternals in 2021.
Beyond her film career and her fashion venture, Jolie also revealed her involvement as a leading producer in the upcoming Broadway musical adaptation of S.E. Hinton’s beloved novel, The Outsiders. This announcement came after her departure from a two-decade-long commitment as a special envoy for the UN refugee agency, UNHCR. In a joint statement with UNHCR, Jolie mentioned her evolving approach to advocacy, which now involves more direct engagement with refugees and grassroots organizations to seek solutions for displaced individuals worldwide.
