Hey there, I'm Karli Bulnes. Angelina Jolie puts her movie star status in perspective in today's PopSugar Rush. "Every once in a while I get a dress on and I walk a red carpet but it's kind of like that funny thing you do, that party you go to every once in a while but it's not who you really are." Angelina Jolie says going glam on the red carpet is just part of the job. In fact, the A-list actress identifies with her humanitarian side and motherhood more so than Hollywood. "I have a real view of the real world and I'm very happy inside the real world because I'm very touched and very moved by people and what they overcome/and they have always reminded me to just wake up in the morning and just be grateful your children are healthy. Nothing else matters." Angelina spoke about her priorities this week with reporters in Germany ahead of the Berlin Film Festival . . . . . . and PopSugar editor is here to explain how she's putting them into practice: Angelina Jolie may be in Berlin for work, but she found time for family on Thursday. She took Maddox, Pax, and Shiloh to Legoland, where they played and picked up some toys. Then today, she had her goodwill ambassador hat on and met with the German Foreign Minister. Angelina's directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, is set to show at the festival tomorrow. And later this month, Ms. Jolie will walk another red carpet — she's tapped to be a presenter at the Academy Awards and will support partner Brad Pitt, who is up for Best Actor in a leading role. Brad's Oscar night cheering squad will also include Billy Beane, the Oakland Athletics' general manager who he portrays in Moneyball.
