Report: Angelina Jolie Wants To Move To London For Job With United Nations
Angelina Jolie wants to move her family to London in hopes of landing a job with the United Nations when her divorce from Brad Pitt is finalized, a new report claims.
According to what sources told TMZ, the 41-year-old actress intends to take her children to London because she is angling to secure a high-ranking job at the U.N. She must first prove to a family court that Pitt is an unfit parent.
TMZ reports that two women — both unnamed in the report — have advised Jolie on how to separate from Pitt for over a year now. One of the women is a reportedly member of England’s House of Lords while the other holds some type of government position.
Jolie was appointed as a special envoy at the United Nations in 2012 and sources told TMZ that Jolie believes moving to London will help further her chances there.
Jolie stunned the entertainment world when she filed for divorce from Pitt in September after two years of marriage. The actress currently has physical custody of the couple’s children — Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8 — while Pitt has monitored visitation.
She has expressed interest in leaving Hollywood before. In 2014, she told Britain’s Channel 4 News that she had few reservations about leaving her career behind to be at home with her kids.
“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 … if it went away tomorrow I would be very happy to be home with the children,” Jolie said.
“I wake up in the morning as a mom 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.”
