Angelina Jolie is backing up Brad Pitt's previous statements that he is looking to retire from acting when he turns 50.

In fact, the actress told Anderson Cooper on his talk show "Anderson" in an interview set to air on December 19, that the two are "both racing to see which one of us gets to retire first."

"We both, like most people, we like being home," she said, according to Access Hollywood. "Whoever is the one who's home tends to be the happier one because we get to play with the kids and the other one is out earning the money."

Pitt, the 47-year-old actor and father to actress Angelina Jolie's six children, said in an interview last month with the Australian version of the show "60 Minutes" that he is "preparing to turn his back on acting."

When asked, "How much longer would you like to do your business for?" Pitt says: "Three years."

He is then asked what he plans to do afterwards.

"Hell if I know," the actor says in the interview. "I am really enjoying the producing side and development of stories and putting those pieces together. And getting stories to the plate that might have had a tougher time otherwise."

Meanwhile, Angelina Jolie told Anderson Cooper that she finds it funny that tabloids are so interested in her life. "I'm the most boring," she said.

"I'm not totally boring, but we do often say that because we don't go out clubbing, we're not big into fashion," she added. "We do a lot of dealing with kids and stuff."

The actress' big screen directorial debut "In The Land of Blood and Honey" was nominated for a Golden Globe award for Best Foreign Language Film on Thursday, December 15.

In her "Anderson" interview, the actress also opened up about her relationship with her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, who died in 2007 at 56 of ovarian cancer.

"She was a great listener and a great friend. She was my best friend," Jolie said. "I could talk to her about everything and she... I guess she made me feel like I had a voice and that no matter what would happen, I knew she'd loved me."
