Angelina Jolie is featured on the cover of the latest issue of “Vogue” magazine and inside she talks about how she and husband Brad Pitt have their issues.
She and Pitt filmed their new movie “By The Sea” following their August 2014 wedding and despite it being about a couple whose marriage is on the rocks, she says that it’s not about her and her husband. She revealed, “It’s not autobiographical. Brad and I have our issues. But if the characters were even remotely close to our problems we couldn’t have made the film. 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.”
Angelina also talked about menopause and how she is excited to turn fifty-years-old and having a mastectomy. She said, “I wish my mom had been able to make those choices. They are not easy surgeries. The ovaries are an easy surgery, but the hormone changes – interesting. We just joke that I had my Monday edit. Tuesday surgery. Wednesday go into menopause. Thursday come back to edit, a little funky with my steps.”
Her mother Marcheline Bertrand passed away in 2007 after battling breast and ovarian cancer for almost eight years. She said, “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.”
