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.

A Tranny? Have you people ever SEEN a tranny? I mean, as much as I adore Miss Mimi Marks [who is beautiful]... she don't look like Angie! And Angie don't look like no tranny.

Zarah, you are right. Anyone can raise children of this way, it is normal. What does she mean? She is not 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.

I like the picture. This also reminds me of models like Cindy Crawford,from 1989. Almost like that model she played in that movie Gia, I think it was. I love big hair,anyway. I'm sure the pictures inside are amazing.

They certainly picked my least favourite picture for the cover shot. She looks good but the inside pictures are just jaw-droppingly beautiful. Is jaw-droppingly a word? Hmmm. Dunno but I digress. JackNtheBox, a little bit of simple research (Google -> Angelina Jolie) would tell you that she knows the Cambodian language is called Khmer. She's said it about a million and one times. Go look it up before you start spouting off. Ta very much.

I don't like this cover. They could have made her look much better.

Angelina said Maddox' mother tongue was Khmer on ELLEN back in 2004. She has never referred to his birth language as "Cambodian." BTW: Brad has a tattoo in Khmer on his belly so I think every night she can be reminded that the official language of her eldest is Khmer.
UH! She's so hot it's disgusting! I love the homage to the '80s pinup. Hot Hot Hot. Her father said some horrible things about her to the press that should only be said to your child in private, it's nice of her to try to make up with him, but I dont think she has to. Just like a child should honor a parent, a parent should respect the fact that a child has to operate in this world with their support, not their scrutiny. Anyhoo...rant of the day.
