But perhaps she could be back on the circuit next year, as she was seen visiting a movie studio with her son Pax.
The 44-year-old looked chic as always as she arrived at a studio inside Universal City in Los Angeles, accompanied by her 16-year-old son.
Angelina was seen sipping from a can as she looked effortlessly stylish in a long black coat skinny trousers and heels.
The Maleficent actress wore her hair in a ponytail, while she accessorised with dark sunglasses and a classic brown handbag.
It’s unclear what Angelina was in the studio for, but she has plenty of work ahead in 2020 – this year, she will star as Thena in Marvel’s eagerly anticipated The Eternals, as well as Those Who Wish Me Dead, Come Away and The One And Only Ivan.
Meanwhile, Pax – who Angelina adopted in 2007 from Vietnam – was all smiles in a colour-blocked hoodie.
Ange and Pax’s outing comes as Jolie’s ex-husband Brad has been joking about his personal life during awards season.
The 56-year-old spoke on the WTF with Marc Maron podcast, and was peeved to learn that Leonardo DiCaprio gets followed less than him by paparazzi.
Brad said: ‘I’m just like, trash mag fodder. I don’t know… because of my disaster of a personal life, probably.’
And at the Golden Globes – where he won best supporting actor for playing Cliff Booth in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood – the actor made another dig at his romantic life, and sparked a reaction from ex-wife Jennifer Aniston that sent us all wild.
The dad-of-six said during his acceptance speech: ‘I wanted to bring my mom, I couldn’t because every woman I stand next to, they say I’m dating and it’d just be awkward.’
Jennifer cracked up at the gag – and Brad even later addressed a possible reunion between the former spouses, because he knows that’s what we’re all waiting for.
Speaking to ET ahead attending the same after-party as his ex-wife, Brad was told fans were all ‘hoping for this moment, where you and Jennifer run into each other’.
He replied with a grin: ‘I’ll run into Jen, she’s a good friend. Yeah.’
Referring to Jennifer’s reunion with her Friends co-stars, which broke Instagram in October, he then quipped: ‘The second most important reunion of her year? I understand. That was a play on Friends. They were saying that.’
Pitt was married to Friends star Aniston from 2000 until 2005, when he met Angelina on the set of Mr And Mrs Smith.
The stars tied the knot in 2014, but just two years later, they announced their separation.
