Angelina Jolie doesn’t feel that privileged moms should complain

Angelina Jolie doesn't feel that privileged moms should complain

Angelina Jolie is busy promoting her new Disney movie “Maleficent”, but has opened up about the stresses of motherhood. In her statement, she is self aware enough to know that she is privileged and doesn’t feel that she has a right to complain about the hardships associated with being a mother.

She said, “I’m not a single mom with two jobs trying to get by every day. I have much more support than most people, most women in this world. And I have the financial means to have a home and health care and food. My kids, they’re here upstairs.”

With regard to having time off, she said, “When I feel I’m doing too much, I do less, if I can. And that’s why I’m in a rare position where I don’t have to do job after job. I can take time when my family needs it.”

When speaking of her schedule, she said, “I can say I can only get into the (editing) room after the kids are in school, and I have to be back for dinner, and they’re coming for lunch.”

She added, “I actually feel that women in my position, when we have all at our disposal to help us, shouldn’t complain. Consider all the people who really struggle and don’t have the financial means, don’t have the support, and many people are single raising children. That’s hard.”

Angelina Jolie pregnant with “miracle baby”

Angelina Jolie pregnant with "miracle baby"

Angelina Jolie could have all of her reproductive organs completely removed and “Star” magazine would still be making the claims that she’s having some sort of “miracle baby”. Perhaps they have tired themselves of falsely claiming that Jennifer Aniston is knocked up for the 700th time?

The actress appears on the cover of the latest issue of the magazine and she’s apparently pregnant again. Is she really feeling “blessed”? We doubt it. We highly doubt that Angie and Brad want a seventh child…isn’t six enough?

Where do they get that Angelina has gained twelve pounds? We just don’t see it. Perhaps she had a photo taken of her with a cheeseburger baby, felt it was a slow news week and decided to run with it.

What do you think?

Angelina Jolie talks Brad, the kids and her health in ‘People’

Angelina Jolie talks Brad, the kids and her health in 'People'

Angelina Jolie covers this week’s edition of “People” magazine and inside she talks about her fiance Brad, their six children together and her health.

She said that the kids may have some input on their wedding day. She revealed, “We are discussing it with the children and how they imagine it might be. Which is verging on hysterical, how kids envision a wedding. They will, in a way, be the wedding planners. It’s going to be Disney or paintball – one or the other.”

The Oscar winner, who briefly shares the screen with daughter Viv in Maleficent, out May 30, also opens up about how parenthood has transformed her relationship with Pitt, 50.

“You’re not lovers or boyfriend and girlfriend as much as you are a family,” she says.

The actress, who underwent a preventive double mastectomy last year, also discusses the impact of that decision.

“I’m really happy about the choices I’ve made,” she says, “and I feel even more connected to other people, especially women.”

Angelina Jolie is putting her acting career on the back burner

Angelina Jolie is putting her acting career on the back burner

Angelina Jolie stars as the titular character in the Disney movie “Maleficent”, but in the future she is putting her career choices on the back burner.

Angelina Jolie was in London promoting her new film Maleficent, which explores the untold story of Disney’s iconic villain from the classic Sleeping Beauty.

Joined at a press conference by her co-star, Elle Fanning, she revealed that stories play an important everyday role in the Jolie-Pitt household. She explains that she makes up her own tales for her children, and likes to tell them stories every night, often involving them as characters.

She adds that “the side of fairytales I don’t like is that they tend to have these happy endings, or there’s just good and evil and things are perfect. I like to think that when there’s a good story for children it has a good sense of moral tale, and I think that’s what I try to teach my kids, and it’s what we tried to do with this film.”

When asked about where acting fits as a priority alongside being a mother, telling stories, directing and working with the UN, she says, “it’s going to be taking more of a back seat. I’ve had a wonderful career and I’m going to be taking all of the opportunities I’ve had to tell stories and work for as long as I have. I’m sure there’ll be a few more films, but I’m happy I’m able to be selective and have fun with characters like this. I would like to focus more on writing and directing, and above all I would like to focus more on my work with the UN.”

After checking her IMDB page, we’ve noticed that she has “Kung-Fu Panda 3″ and “Salt 2″ coming up in 2015. We can’t wait to see what project she does with Brad! Hopefully, it’ll be another “Mr. And Mrs. Smith” movie.
