Angelina Jolie spoke about her upcoming part in Those Who Wish Me Dead, as well as how her divorce from Brad Pitt affected her decision to take on those roles.
Angelina Jolie has opened up about her experience as a single mother.
The Mr. & Mrs. Smith actress has taken on fewer projects since her divorce from Brad Pitt in 2016, telling Entertainment Weekly in an interview published Tuesday, April 20, “I love directing, but I had a shift in my family situation that hasn’t allowed me to direct for a few years.”
“I wanted to do shorter jobs and spend more time at home,” she said, “so I went back to doing a few acting jobs.” “It’s true.”
Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Vivienne and Knox are among the five children she and Brad share custody of, while Maddox, their eldest son, is now 18.
“All the kids are home with Angelina but they have continued seeing Brad and go over for their daily visits,” a source previously revealed to E! News, revealing that the exes prioritised their kids’ health and happiness, particularly during the coronavirus pandemic.
“They’re doing their homework, learning their languages, playing instruments, playing board games, and assisting with dinner preparation,” the source added. “They are used to doing their schoolwork at home, so it hasn’t been too difficult.”
However, Angie had her children by her side during filming on the HBO Max movie, which took place before the pandemic. In 2019, E! News announced that she and her entire family lived in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where they had a good time while she worked.
“They’re doing the same thing in New Mexico as they are in Los Angeles. They’ve been to Target many times and enjoy shopping and dining out “at the time, an insider revealed “Angelina spoils them with toy and sporting goods carts. She enjoys spoiling them with new experiences as much as she can. She had to work a lot, so she wanted them to have fun and keep themselves occupied.”
The kids will also go back to L.A. to see Brad, according to the source.
“I feel like I’m lacking in all the skills to be a typical stay-at-home mom,” the 45-year-old actress told British Vogue recently, referring to her unusual family life.
Angelina said she’s never felt happier, despite her and her children’s unorthodox lives. “I feel like I’m going to hit my stride in my 50s,” she said.
