Angelina Jolie 3

I think I should learn French and be a better cook – basic, really good life stuff.
Angelina Jolie

I’m always doing something. I never shut my brain off. I always have something going on.
Angelina Jolie

The great thing about having a bunch of kids is they just remind you that you’re the person who takes them to go poop!
Angelina Jolie

I’m not somebody that thinks about destiny and fate, but I don’t walk away from it when something unfolds.
Angelina Jolie

Brad and I have never wanted our kids to be actors, but we also want them to be around film and be a part of Mommy and Daddy’s life and for it not to be kept from them, either. We just want them to have a good, healthy relationship with it.
Angelina Jolie

I think the depth, what children can handle and what they’re interested in, is much deeper than I think what people assume. I think it’s why sometimes we make things too simple for them.
Angelina Jolie

The side of fairytales I don’t like is that they always have happy endings, that there’s just good and evil, and things are perfect. But life is a little more complicated, and that’s what I try to teach my kids.
Angelina Jolie

My children love Maleficent’s voice, so they always make me do it at home.
Angelina Jolie

It was weird to be married; you kind of lose your identity. You’re suddenly somebody’s wife. And you’re like, ‘Oh, I’m half of a couple now. I’ve lost me.’
Angelina Jolie

I learned to fly a few years ago in England. It’s the only place I’m completely alone – up in the air, detached from everything.
Angelina Jolie

I want to work; then, as my kids get older, I want to have adventures. I want to visit all their countries: learn and live inside all their cultures.
Angelina Jolie

In my father’s generation, the product was 80 percent of what you were putting into the world, and your personal life was 20 percent. It now seems that 80 percent of the product I put out is silly, made-up stories and what I’m wearing.
Angelina Jolie

I had a C-section, and I found it fascinating. I didn’t find it a sacrifice, and I didn’t find it a painful experience. I found it a fascinating miracle of what a body can do.
Angelina Jolie

When I was growing up, I wanted to adopt, because I was aware there were kids that didn’t have parents.
Angelina Jolie

It’s a great thing about being pregnant – you don’t need excuses to pee or to eat.
Angelina Jolie

I’m not somebody that just wants to hold up a white flag and say, ‘Let’s all just get along.’ I think people that do horrible things should be held accountable.
Angelina Jolie

I’m terrible at reading scripts. I love to read, and I hate reading scripts.
Angelina Jolie

I don’t see the point of doing an interview unless you’re going to share the things you learn in life and the mistakes you make. So to admit that I’m extremely human and have done some dark things I don’t think makes me unusual or unusually dark. I think it actually is the right thing to do, and I’d like to think it’s the nice thing to do.
Angelina Jolie

War is so complex; human nature is so complex. There’s no filmmaker who has ever figured it out perfectly.
Angelina Jolie

My mother was a full-time mother. She didn’t have much of her own career, her own life, her own experiences… everything was for her children. I will never be as good a mother as she was. She was just grace incarnate. She was the most generous, loving – she’s better than me.
Angelina Jolie

When you are an actor, you have to stay inside this world, but when you are with the crew, on the outside, you are in the dirt, working through all the issues. It’s just a different way of working, and I think I preferred it.
Angelina Jolie

Real food, I’ve found, is actually better than dieting.
Angelina Jolie

It’s hard to be clear about who you are when you are carrying around a bunch of baggage from the past. I’ve learned to let go and move more quickly into the next place.
Angelina Jolie

People wonder aloud about whether I am an okay mother. That is obviously painful because it’s so important to me. It’s hard to hear that people think I’m not a capable mother and a good person, that they just think I’m nuts.
Angelina Jolie

I notice that my characters go out to dinner and have fun and take these great trips, but I spend so much time on their lives, I don’t have much of a personal life of my own. I have to sort of remember to fill out that little notebook on me.
Angelina Jolie

Like every parent, when you start your family, your life completely changes. And you completely live for someone else. I find that the most extraordinary thing. Your life is handed over to someone else. From that moment on, they come first in every choice you make. It’s the most wonderful thing.
