Interview With Angelina Jolie About Family, Traveling, Changeling

Jet-Lagged Angelina Likes Hollywood But Traveling More

Angelina Jolie has been all over these days talking about her family, movies, and life choices. While her candid nature may not go over well with everyone, any peek into the Jolie-Pitts' unique life is welcome, especially with swirling rumors that there may already be plans for the next addition. In yet another new interview, Angelina admits that they're a family suffering in one way — jet lag. Here are highlights:

  • On her schedule: "I woke up at 3 in the morning with four kids with jet lag and two babies. I put myself together for a few hours and go out. And then I go home. This is my job."
  • On playing mothers on screen: "I don't think it's a choice of mine as much as it is something women deal with when we get older. A woman in her 30s is more likely to have roles that in some way relate to family."
  • On Changeling: "I got pregnant right in the middle of it and I think partially because of it . . . I was so emotional about children that I think something in me kicked into gear."
  • On LA: "I don't dislike it here. I just really do love to travel. I love other cultures. And I love raising my kids in the world. I'm so fortunate that I get to do that."

It's more of the same from Angelina who has nothing but glowing things to say about her nomadic family and many projects. While Changeling is still doing well in its theaters, we'll see if her name really makes the short list when award season comes.

No worries, baha. There are advantages and disadvantages to both lifestyles--ultimately it's up to the individual what they'll make of it and whether it'll work for them :) And I do see your point.

Jude, When I read your comment I immediately thought of my mother who hasn't left (except on vacations and such) her piece of land that she was raised on. She went to college but it was a local college. She has always loved Virginia and has never wanted to leave. Sorry if I took what you said wrong. I apologize for my tone also. I have 2 children and we have lived all over the country and they have lived from coast to coast and in between. I'm glad they have had that opportunity to move around and see what our country is about, but both of them said they would rather not...they like it when we stay in one place and they don't have to keep saying goodbye to friends who say they will never lose touch, but always do. Even some of my good friends who I thought would never lose contact has let the miles put real distance in between us even with a telephone and email. There is nothing like being about to see your friend and live close to them and do things with them. I'm all for seeing the world...but also, having a stable home and friends to come home to. That's what makes leaving worthwhile. Coming home and telling about your experiences.

I honestly am soooo very tired of hearing her tell anyone with writing job how very happy she is. Great you are happy but got that at the expense of a marriage. So every time she goes on about how happy she is I can't help but think how she got there.

Thanks, bluesteyes. You're right in everything you said :) I didn't mean that anyone who hasn't traveled is an ignorant buffoon, and definitely not anyone here--that's why I clarified it by saying I wasn't talking about anyone here. It's my personal opinion that these kids are extremely fortunate to be able to travel so much, as it is my personal opinion that traveling when I was a child did me a world of good. No, traveling and seeing the world doesn't necessarily make anyone a better person, just as not traveling doesn't necessarily make anyone ignorant. It's just helpful, in my opinion, and I think it's a good thing. That was all I was trying to say.

To clarify myself I don't think being nomadic means you're better though (i though i should add that in case anyone is misreading me). I think Jude would agree too.
bluesteyes bluesteyes 7 years
I think sometimes writing alone can give the wrong impression, i mean you're aren't seeing the face so maybe people misunderstood each other, just saying..don't bite my head off.

Ounch! that hurts i spend a lot of time on blog too and i have been raised in 3 continents. I don't think Jude meant anything badly girls, she's quite grounded as far as I've seen. I've spent a lot of time in blog because i'm setting one up and i am trying to find out how can i get so many hits. Well maybe she's doing the same this i don't know. By this time next week you won't find me in here that much anymore. I'm writing next week and going back to the library to do research on my project.

I have just seen her on the BBC here in London, she looked kind of upset, Maybe it's just me, but she looked serious and a bit exhausted (maybe just lacking sleep), i for one will go and see this film.

*Just to clarify, I didn't mean "ignorant buffoon" about anyone here--it was just a general comment about people in general who haven't seen the world and don't feel a need or curiosity to.

I would, absolutely. I spent a lot of my childhood traveling internationally with my parents, and I love the person that has made me. The languages I've learned and the things I've seen have stuck with me. IMO, it's not about staying in one home that creates a sense of stability, it's the love of one's parents and family, and that can be found anywhere, even in the most unconventional ways. Plus, I'd know my children wouldn't turn out to be ignorant buffoons unaware of the rest of the world, and that would be a major plus.

lisajay, no I wouldn't. Especially when my children are below 7 years old, they are going to school and have a regular normal happy life. If they're older, I'll give them the opportunity to see the world, save the poor, etc, etc. But now her children is what? 1,2,3,4, and 5 years old, please!

i think it is great she still works and shows her children the world- admit it, if you could- you would.

I haven't seen Changeling yet but I will - I'm bracing myself for it because I don't like to cry in movies and based on several people's accounts this is a crying movie! Anyway, I think she is stunning and people who have seen her in person say that pictures do her no justice because she's breathtaking in person. Also, I guess they are on their way to Germany now - Ramey had some pics of their jet but who knows.

She's looked like crap since she had those twins. Much prettier during her pregnancy. Eat, woman! Carbs, meet Angie; Angie, meet carbs.

:WAVE: Hi LOVE ANGELINA, haven't seen you much lately, everything cool? There may be some truth to what you say blue, about women who have been scorned dislike her more than those that haven't. I never thought of it, but for me that very well may be part of it. Not because I feel like I was hurt, but because I have great disdain for ANY woman that moves in on a man while he's still with someone else, and that IS from personal experience. But i'm trying very hard these days to keep my dislike civil. After all, it's not personal, I don't even KNOW these people! LOL
