Angelina Jolie premiered Changeling last weekend with Brad by her side, and she also opened up about the film and her family to Parade magazine and German Vanity Fair. While we're still debating the controversial Angelina breast-feeding W cover we saw this morning and waiting to see the rest of the shoot, check out her talking about the film, her kids, and Brad. Here's more:
- Q: In Changeling, fate intervenes. Do you believe in that kind of mysterious turn of events that can dramatically change one's life?
A: Only in a positive way. When I met my son Maddox, I went to Cambodia and left feeling I'd left something behind. I went back on a humanitarian mission and I felt, "My son's here." It was the strangest feeling. I woke up that morning thinking, "They're going to introduce me to my kid today and I wonder how I'm going to feel." And the moment I saw Maddox I knew I was his mother. I can't explain it.
- Q: Does doing a film like this make you feel even more protective of your own kids?
A: We have a high-profile family, but I don't want my children to be scared when we have to quickly get into the car because some person is running at us with a camera or something. It is a fine line of wanting them to be aware of strangers but not making them afraid. I suppose that, like with everything with children, it's just communication and being honest with them.
- Q: What helps you deal with all the fame and celebrity that surrounds you?
A: I'm just a mom and I'm very grounded by my family. I'm very happy, and I'm so lucky. The world can like me, hate me, fall apart around me, and at least, you know, I wake up with my little kids and I'm happy.
