In a new interview with Hello! magazine, Angelina Jolie faced a common (and commonly dreaded) interview question: “Where do you see yourself in 10 years?” But the actress, filmmaker, and international activist was ready with an answer.
“I imagine I will spend my days traveling from country to country to visit our children, who I expect will live around the world,” Jolie said.
She continued to speak of her six children: “I think some will be interested in the international work I do, and I would love to partner with them as I continue.”
Jolie has already been working with her family on her passion projects—she and her oldest son, 15-year-old Maddox, collaborated on the film First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers, which focused on Maddox’s home country of Cambodia. The film premiered earlier this year.
“[Maddox] was the one who just called it and said he was ready and that he wanted to work on it, which he did. He read the script, helped with notes, and was in the production meetings,” Jolie [told The Guardian](https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/jan/11/angelina-jolie-cambodia-first-they-killed-my-father) in February.
Jolie told Hello! that, in the future, she believes her life will be much more focused on her activism and less on her film work. This prediction is fitting for someone who has spent much of her time in that realm. In 2012, Jolie was named special envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. This September, she will become a visiting professor at the Center for Women, Peace, and Security at the London School of Economics.
“I imagine I will be less involved in film and be focused more on family and foreign affairs,” she noted.
For now, though, she is going to focus on the things that bring her joy—chiefly her 12-year-old daughter Zahara’s palpable happiness:
“She is one of those people who laughs with her whole body. Completely open and full of joy.”
