It seems Angelina Jolie and hubby Brad Pitt are in a race to see who will retire from acting first.

Brad has said his film career will likely stay behind the scenes as a director when he turns 50. (The dismal box office returns from Killing Them Softly last weekend probably didn't do much to convince him otherwise.)

Now Angelina is fanning the retirement flames once again, saying she will likely stop acting as her kids get older. "I think I'm going to have to give up the acting as the kids hit the teenage years, anyway, too much to manage at home," she said, according to E! Online. (But aren't the teenage years usually when moms decide to go back to work?)

According to Angelina, it's not just her kids that are taking precedence over acting -- she's finding her humanitarian work with the United Nations far more rewarding than standing in front of a camera. "It's a really lucky profession to be a part of and I enjoy it," she said. "But if it went away tomorrow, I would be very happy to be home with the children. 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."

Luckily, we've still got a few more years of Angelina before that happens, since her six children range from ages 4-11. Next up for her is the title role in the Sleeping Beauty remake Maleficent, which hits theaters in March.

Will you be sorry if Angelina's acting days are numbered?
