Angelina Jolie Discusses Her Health, Film Projects & Travelling With Her Family


Angelina is in part promoting her latest project, a film called ‘By the Sea’ which she wrote herself and although she says it’s personal, she says it is not biographical. Angelina also directed and acts in the film alongside her real-life husband Brad Pitt. She explained why she choose to make the risky film:

“The director was very focused. The actress was unstable. And the writer was deeply confused. This is the only film I’ve done that is completely based on my own crazy mind. 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.”

Speaking on travelling so much with her large family, Angelina says their family trips allows everyone to learn about different cultures and she thinks that they all gain so much from moving around so frequently:

“We travel often to Asia, Africa, Europe, where they were born. The boys know they’re from Southeast Asia, and they have their food and their music and their friends, and they have a pride particular to them. But I want them to be just as interested in the history of their sisters’ countries and Mommy’s country so we don’t start dividing. Instead of taking Z on a special trip, we all go to Africa and we have a great time.”

The actress also shared more on her experience after having her breasts and ovaries removed. She explains that it was difficult to go through but she now is looking forward to the future because she acted fast and has protected herself by having the surgeries:

“It really connected me to other women. I wish my mom had been able to make those choices. It’s hard. They are not easy surgeries. The ovaries are an easy surgery, but the hormone changes — interesting. We did joke that I had my Monday edit. Tuesday surgery. Wednesday go into menopause. Thursday come back to edit, a little funky with my steps. 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.”
