ANGELINA JOLIE will return to work in February (09), just seven months after giving birth.
The Tomb Raider star and partner Brad Pitt welcomed twins Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline in the south of France in July (08) and spent the summer at a chateau there.
Jolie stepped out publicly for the first time since the birth at the New York premiere of new film The Changeling earlier this month (Oct08) – and is keen to get back to a film set.
She tells Britain’s Hello magazine, “I’m planning to go back to work in February – there’s a project I’m looking at now that will begin at the end of that month. It’ll have been over a year since I last worked and there was a big discussion in our house of, ‘Should I go back to work?'”
And Pitt was happy for Jolie to return to acting, even helping her figure out childcare arrangements for the twins and their four other children – adopted Maddox, seven, Pax, four, Zahara, three, and biological daughter Shiloh, two.
She adds, “Brad was wonderfully supportive. He said, ‘Your work is part of you and you should do this. We’ll be fine – the babies will be sitting up and hanging out in your trailer, and the kids will come to visit when they’re not at school. It’s going to be all right.'”
