A-list Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie who stars in last weekend's box office hit "Maleficent" has hinted that she could be retiring from acting soon. 

The Guardian reports that the 38-year-old actress spoke to BBC Radio 5 Live earlier this week and spoke about her upcoming project as Cleopatra, but also hints it might be her last film.

"We've been working on it," revealed the stunning actress. "There's been lots of different ideas of directors and lots of different discussions. The script has been written by Eric Roth, who is a dear friend and a brilliant writer."

Jolie continued, "She's complicated, it's complicated to get this one right. I think we're getting there. It's getting close. I imagine the preparation for it is going to be big. It's one of those that you think maybe that's the one you put everything into and that's where you end it, that's where you finish - in a great way. What could you do beyond that one?"

These comments come after a series of revelations from the actress, especially during the "Maleficent" press conference a few weeks back.

Celebuzz recalls Jolie speaking about taking a "more of a backseat" role in Hollywood and was quoted: "I'm sure there will be more films but I am happy I am able to be selective and have fun with characters like this [Maleficent] but I would like to focus on writing and directing and above all I would like to focus more on my work with the UN."

Angelina is presently a special envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and advocates for the elimination of sexual violence in conflict.

Jolie will be releasing her second project as a director with war drama "Unbroken" which stars Garrett Hedlund and Jack O'Connell hitting theaters in December.

However, Hollywood.com reports that the actress spoke to Brit paper The Independent denying news that she'll be retiring.

"Brad (Pitt) has known for a while that I love my humanitarian work and I love directing and writing so he has seen this coming I think. But I am not retiring. I will do one or two movies if they come, the right ones, but I think that I have been in front of the camera for so long in my life and it's nice to step back."
