Angelina Jolie in Vanity Fair July 2008

Angelina's Voluptuous Vanity Fair Cover

Angelina Jolie got vamped up and showed off her new friends on the cover of the July issue of Vanity Fair. Despite the crazy rumors we were hearing this morning, Angie hasn't given birth to her twins just yet, which is a good thing since she loves being pregnant so much. In the article she's candid about her growing family, how she manages it all, and why Brad helps make everything a little bit better. Here's more:

  • On being pregnant: “I love it. It makes me feel like a woman. It makes me feel that all the things about my body are suddenly there for a reason. It makes you feel round and supple, and to have a little life inside you is amazing. Also, I’m fortunate. I think some women have a different experience depend-ing on their partner. I think that affects it. I happen to be with somebody who finds pregnancy very sexy. So that makes me feel very sexy.”
  • On Shiloh’s birth: “We were in this little hospital in Africa when Shi was born. I don’t think there was anybody else in the hospital. It was just a little cottage, the three of us. It ended up being the greatest thing…. 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.”
  • On her international family: “When I was growing up I wanted to adopt, because I was aware there were kids that didn’t have parents. It’s not a humanitarian thing, because I don’t see it as a sacrifice. It’s a gift. We’re all lucky to have each other. I look at Shiloh—because, obviously, physically, she is the one that looks like Brad and I when we were little—and say, ‘If these were our brothers and sisters, how much would we have known by the time we were six that it took into our 30s and 40s to figure out?’ I suppose I’m giving them the childhood I always wished I had.”

To see what else Angelina had to say about her kids' nannies and raising budding artists, just

.

  • On nannies: “We don’t ever have anybody spend the night. We may have to adjust that when the next one comes. But we do have ladies that work with us, and they’re also from different cultures and back-grounds. One lady’s a Vietnamese teacher—wonderful. One is of Congolese descent from Belgium. Another is from the States and is really creative and does art programs.”
  • On artists as parents: “Artists raise their kids differently,” she said. “We communicate to the point where we probably annoy our children. We have art around the house, we have books, we go to plays, we talk. Our focus is art and painting and dress-up and singing. It’s what we love. So I think you can see how artists in some way raise other artists.”

The Jolie-Pitt lifestyle has always seemed like a combination of chaos and fun, and we can't wait until Brad and Angelina have two more artists in training for real.

Zarah, you are right. Anyone can raise children of this way, it is normal. What does she mean? She isnot human? Artists are "special"? No one else can do it?And I agree when you say she looks like a young teen... I think she really lives in her "little world", (not so little)... And I don't understand this "different cultures" thing... Why it is so important to say the "ladies" are from different culture? It sounds so strange...

I saw all the pictures from the shoot and have to say she looks fab. I know they airbrushed her face because she's got no wrinkles or lines and normally she does but she still looks really great.

A lot of people call the Khmer language Cambodian. If you were to google Khmer language, you get a lot of sites like Wikipedia that interchange the terms.

My parents raised me much like that - focusing on creativity... and I graduated both high school and college, and graduate school with straight A's. Creativity helps the brain to function more effectively...

JackNtheBox - She has said several times that Maddox is learning Khmer, I have never heard her say "Cambodian." I doubt that Angie is that ignorant about the native language of her firstborn son's country. If she did say Maddox was trying to speak "Cambodian," it was probably a slip of the tongue or she was probably trying to explain in simple terms to reporters/interviewers who have no idea what Khmer is.
