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.

Angelina Jolie says Shiloh didn’t want to play Princess Aurora in Maleficent

Angelina Jolie says Shiloh didn't want to play Princess Aurora in Maleficent

Angelina Jolie stars as the title character in the movie “Maleficent” and she said that her daughter Shiloh was offered the role of young Princess Aurora in the flick. Her reaction was priceless: she laughed in Angelina’s face!

In the end, they needed a child that wasn’t afraid of Angelina in her evil looking costume, so they went with her other daughter Vivienne.

She said, “I asked Shiloh about being Aurora, and she laughed in my face. For young Aurora, they needed a child who wouldn’t be fazed by the Mistress of All Evil hissing, ‘I don’t like children’ in her face.”

She went on to say, “And my little Vivienne – we call her my shadow, because there’s nothing I can do to shake her. I can be tired, I can be grumpy, I can be in a terrible mood, and she doesn’t care. It’s ‘Mommy, mommy’, and she’ll cling to me. We knew that she would still do that thing, she’d still smile at me and insist that I pick her up. So we couldn’t really cast anybody else.”

With regard to acting, she and Brad hope their children will consider a different line of work. She said, “Brad and I made the decision that we wouldn’t keep them from sets and the fun of making moives, but we wouldn’t [glorify it either]. We wouldn’t make it a good thing or a bad thing. But I would really prefer they do something else. After two days of it, Brad and I were so stressed we never wanted to do it again.”

Angelina Jolie covers Elle Magazine, opens up about her “misinterpreted” 20’s


Angelina Jolie lands the June cover of Elle Magazine, and not just the US edition. She covers ALL of Elle’s June covers  – which includes 20 international editions. The actress is promoting her new movie, ‘Maleficent,’ which explains why she’s on 20 covers. It’s surprising to see her on the cover of a magazine, I feel like it’s been a while since we’ve seen her promoting a new movie. In the gorgeous photos, Angelina wears Yves Saint Laurent – exclusively. She looks amazing. I love that she only wears black. Girl after my own heart.

Whether she’s tackling films, family, or philanthropy, Angelina Jolie has never been one for small measures. As she prepares to terrify children worldwide as Disney’s deliciously evil Maleficent (the film opens on May 30th), the actress and director works with Saint Laurent creative director Hedi Slimane on a shoot that spotlights her stripped down, very real self for ELLE’s June cover—as well as a 16-page portfolio that will be featured in more than 20 editions of ELLE around the world.

Jolie spoke candidly with ELLE deputy editor Maggie Bullock about life with her fast-growing children (Shiloh’s got a half-pipe!), doing only the work that really matters (including the biggest passion project of her career), and why she and Brad are still passionate and “more interested in each other” than ever. In this exclusive preview, Jolie reflects on the perception of her early years in the spotlight:

The tumult of her twenties, was “misinterpreted as [me] wanting to be rebellious,” Jolie says. “And in fact it wasn’t a need to be destructive or rebellious—it’s that need to find a full voice, to push open the walls around you. You want to be free. And as you start to feel that you are being corralled into a certain life, you kind of push against it. It may come out very strange, it may be interpreted wrong, but you’re trying to find out who you are.”
