The Jolie-Pitts which includes Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, and their six children, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox, grace the pages of Vogue‘s November issue.
In the magazine, Angelina talks about her busy life as an actress, mom, and philanthropist.
Angelina also opened up about traveling the world with their large brood, why she’s not afraid to turn 50, and losing her mom to cancer.
She also talked about her new movie, By the Sea, with Brad that she wrote and directed.
On turning 50: “I feel grounded as a woman. I know others do too. Both of the women in my family, my mother and my grandmother, started dying in their 40s. I’m 40. I can’t wait to hit 50 and know I made it.”
On By the Sea: “This is the only film I’ve done that is completely based on my own crazy mind. [For years, Brad and I called the script] ‘the crazy one.’ We even called it ‘the worst idea.’ As artists we wanted something that took us out of our comfort zones. Just being raw actors. It’s not the safest idea. But life is short. It’s not autobiographical. Brad and I have our issues, but if the characters’ [problems] were even remotely close to our problems we couldn’t have made the film.”
Brad, on Angelina’s charity work: “Let’s be honest, people do this to benefit their image. When I try to make what she does more public, she is always very shy. She prefers to be with refugees, visit the families and do it without media. Which I tell you is uncommon. As you know, many celebrities are weak on details of the problem, and the devil is in the details.”
