LOS ANGELES, Nov. 29 (UPI) -- Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie said on this week's edition of "60 Minutes" she once considered a career as a funeral director.

"It sounds like this very strange, eccentric, dark thing to do, but, in fact, I lost my grandfather and was very upset with his funeral," People.com quoted Jolie as saying. "How somebody passes and how family deals with this passing and what death is should be addressed in a different way. If this whole acting thing didn't work out that was going to be my path."

Jolie, who has six children with her longtime partner Brad Pitt, is on the promotion trail for her directorial debut, "In the Land of Blood and Honey." She won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for "Girl, Interrupted" in 1999.
