Angelina Jolie knows what she's looking for — or rather, not looking for — in a potential future partner.

During a recent chat with E! News' Daily Pop surrounding her new film Those Who Wish Me Dead, the 45-year-old actress joked that she "probably [has] a very long list [of deal-breakers]" when it comes to suitors.

"I've been alone for a long time now," Jolie added with a laugh.

The Oscar winner, who has made her kids her priority since her 2016 split from Brad Pitt, also touched on feeling "very fortunate" for her "six very capable children": 12-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, plus daughters Shiloh, 14, and Zahara, 16, and sons Pax, 17, and Maddox, 19.

"Of course, you wake up and you just feel like, 'I gotta make sure they're okay. I gotta make sure they're mentally okay,' " she said.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jolie also touched on why she hasn't taken on a directing gig since 2017's First They Killed My Father.

"I love directing, but I had a change in my family situation that's not made it possible for me to direct for a few years," she said. "I needed to just do shorter jobs and be home more, so I kind of went back to doing a few acting jobs."

Those Who Wish Me Dead premieres Friday in theaters and on HBO Max.
