Angelina Jolie reveals some new details of her life in her new interview for the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly. She talks about all kinds of things from being pregnant with twins to Pitt’s new tattoo, her career and recent movies.
These are some quotes I liked the most in her interview.
Angie on her necklace:
Mad, our 6-year-old, draws lots of war scenarios. He’s all into war and guns. So for Mother’s Day he drew a machine gun, and Brad had it made into a necklace, which is really sweet. It’s really cute.”
On her role as a mother of a missing boy in Changeling:
I wasn’t old enough to play the mom [before]. And I don’t think I really knew what it was to be a mom until these last few years. Especially the mom of an older son. My relationship with Maddox was very much on my mind and I just couldn’t shake the thought of him through the whole film. He’s the one that I talk to the way I talk to the little boy in the movie. So I see the movie and Brad sees it and [we recognize] things in it. The boy says, “Am I too heavy?” Mad says that all the time. “Am I too heavy?” “Oh, never! One day you’re going to carry me!”
Answering the EW question about her being a very polarizing figure that people either worship or can’t stand, Jolie said:
I’d like to think it’s because I’m not neither here nor there in my life. I think anybody that makes a decision about where they stand is going to cause strong opinions about them. But I think that’s what you should be hoping for in life, so I take that as a very good sign. That some people support me and some people really don’t like me tells me that I’m making decisions and I’m standing strong for something I believe in. I’m making choices in life. And that’s the right thing to do.”
Angelina on a special system they worked out with Brad:
It’s all just so nice [being pregnant]. The only thing that’s hard for me now is with twins and having four kids, there’s a lot of the doctor saying “Stop picking them up as much.” But we’ve worked out a system where Brad just lifts them to me every time they want to come up. I just don’t bend down. I’ll scream, “Honey!” and he’ll come running and lift them up. Or they climb on chairs, so it’s not as big of a lift. So we’re trying to follow doctor’s orders, but I’m bending them a tiny bit.”
… and on sex life during pregnancy:
It [pregnancy] is great for the sex life. It just makes you a lot more creative. So you have fun, and as a woman you’re just so round and full.”
On her mother:
When Brad saw Changeling he said he could see my mother. That was very much my mother. Hated yelling at people, really was so decent and so sweet, but when it came to protecting her children, she somehow found this odd strength. There’s an elegance to her that I don’t really have; there’s a kindness.”
On marriage and Brad:
We have that problem [referring to each other] all the time. I say “partner” sometimes. “Father of my children” is too long. But half the time people refer to us as, “So, your wife this, your husband that.” We’ve stopped correcting everybody. It’s not a big intentional thing not to marry. We immediately were a family when we became a couple, and children were the priority, and we’re both legally committed to the children. And that seemed to be the right thing.”
On Brad’s last tattoo:
I drew that. We went to Davos. It’s not that we were bored at the World Economic Forum, but one night we didn’t have anything to do, so I was drawing on his back. But I was just sketching. He just liked it! The picture everybody saw was kind of awkward, but it just lines up beautifully on his back, just enhances the part of the body I like.”
And, finally, on her flick Wanted and her character Fox:
The idea behind Wanted is not that she’s a badass assassin that just likes to kill people. It’s that, if you ran into Hitler before he did everything, and you knew, should you shoot him? And I would. These assassins are getting lists: They find out who is going to slaughter other people ahead of time and they remove them. So that was the side of me that identified with her.”
I must confess this interview made me see Angelina Jolie differently. She’s not only a beautiful woman, a humanitarian, and a great actress, she’s a deep person with a lot to share with others. She’s different, she’s original, and she’s not afraid to show it.
If she were a shallow person she wouldn’t say something so profound and simple at the same time:
I don’t believe in regrets. It’s a dangerous habit to get into — it makes you pause in your life if you start thinking back and questioning yourself.”
Bottom line: she deserves all the worship and admiration the world is giving to her. Jolie is real. Period.
