The news of retirement of actress Angelina Jolie broke the hearts of millions of her fans. She revealed the plan in an interview and probably after the role of Cleopatra, the beauty queen of ages.
The Maleficent star is set to play Cleopatra in a new adaptation of the Egyptian ruler's life story and has hinted that it could be her last ever film role.

During a BBC Radio 5 Live interview, she said, "There have been lots of different ideas of directors and a lot of different discussions. The script has been written by Eric Roth, who is a dear friend and a brilliant writer."
In the classic 1963 film late Elizabeth Taylor done the role of Cleopatra, the last active pharaoh of Ancient Egypt. So the play will be a challenging role for jolie.
The 38-year-old star hinted that the role will be her very last before retiring from Hollywood in order to focus on her humanitarian work and direction.
She said, "That's where you finish, in a great way. You kind of go, 'What could you do beyond that one?' Put it all into that one."
