Angelina Reveals How Brad Changed Her Life

Angelina Jolie's breastfeeding W Magazine cover made headlines and sparked controversy yesterday, and while most of you thought it was tasteful, it's not the only intimate part of Angelina we'll see. We're still awaiting the full 21-page spread, but in the interview, she talks about her family, her relationship, and why she changed her mind about having children after publicly stating she would only adopt. Here's more:

  • On deciding to get pregnant: "I think one of the life changing things that he did, one of many, is that I was absolutely never going to get pregnant. I never felt that it was the right thing to do . . . [Brad] stopped talking about having other kids in the other way [by natural birth]. So I suppose in my heart, I realized that he was happy with them as his children, completely. I knew he would never see them as different, and that gave me a certain peace. Then I suppose I just looked at him and loved him and just felt open to [getting pregnant]. I suddenly wanted to. It's one of those things you can't explain."
  • On looking back at her decision: "Now I wouldn't trade that experience for the world. It taught me a lot about life, just the process of it, and now we have three other beautiful children that wouldn't otherwise be here."

Angelina had much more to say on Brad being the perfect partner, why she feels sexier than ever, and the twins' personalities so just


  • On her relationship: "I do think that I'm in a good partnership now . . . I think it just needed to be the right man. It's not just that I love being in Brad's company, which obviously I do, but it's that we both roll up our sleeves and take on what we care about in the same way. I have a lot of respect for him, and he helps me to be better and fight hard for things that I love."
  • On feeling sexier post-pregnancy: "I'm with a man who's evolved enough to look at my body and see it as more beautiful because of the journey it has taken and what it has created. He genuinely sees it that way. So I genuinely feel sexier."
  • On getting paid millions for the twins' pictures: "There's nothing to say other than it's bizarre. But we're happy that we have our hands on it to distribute it to people we think are worthy, rather than some paparazzi."

Angelina described Knox as "very chill" and said he "loves music" like his father, and that Vivienne is "more demanding" and "sturdier." She loves to talk about her family, but we're most excited to see the full set of photos, which hopefully includes more of a look at their newest additions.

LOL!!! "but she never stops and says thank you people for giving me a pay check and allowing me to have all this money to where I can live like a queen and you all live from pay check to pay check. " Angelina is by far the most generous celebrity with hr time for fans. She will hold up premieres signing for fans. She even signs for long periods of time at Brad's premieres. They signed autographs and took photos with fans for 50 minutes when Ocean's13 opened in L.A. She is famously kind to her fans and takes the attitude that anyone who has waited to see her and get her autograph deserves her time.

"When they can give 250 million dollars to charity like Paul Newman, and stay out of the spotlight while thier doing it, then I will be impressed with AJ and BP..Paul has 5 daughters, and I never saw one pic of any of them." Paul and Joanne were in the press of their time quite a bit and there were photos of all of his children, including his son who OD-ed in the 70's. I hope AJ & BP can find a place where they are protected and respected like Joanne & Paul did so they can lead more private lives. Maybe that is France, unfortunately. AJ and BP don't have a commercial food product company that will generate $250 million dollars like Newman's Own did. I'm sure Newman was very generous with his own $$$ as AJ & BP are, but the lion's share of what he donated, for the camps & etcetera, came from Newman's Own. BTW Paul Newman's face was on every product and the donations Newman's Own and Newman's Own Organics made were widely publicized. There was nothing "quiet" about it.

'tifygoddess' -- Part of the reason that people who post such nonsense on the internet are called "haters" 'tifygoddess' is that you sound hateful. Also in my experience AJ haters are the ones that always use the term "saint". You never see AJ & BP refer to themselves in that manner nor the majority of their fans. It's fine if you don't like them. I don't quite get why you want to spend time trashing them but go ahead. However, remarks like this "I do think they are media wh*ores even thought they try and act all high and mighty. please." are likely to get you labeled as a Jolie-Pitt hater. Just saying.

husband=brad pitt I know they aren't legal, but she said she thinks of him as her husband and she didn't need a paper telling her she was his or he was hers.

absolutely, when she talks about what is important to her all she ever talks about is her kids and husband...I HAVE NEVER heard her mention how she appreciates her fans not once in the 6 yrs I've been following her. I've heard her say she would shoot and kill some crazed fan and have no problem with it and I've heard her talk about how "Crazy" they are.....but she never stops and says thank you people for giving me a pay check and allowing me to have all this money to where I can live like a queen and you all live from pay check to pay check. :oy:

Wow... If I'm ever famous, I promise to make up all kinds of crazy shit to say so I can get paid! cha-ching! People really seem to love it...or not but still they at least support it. And I'm giving some to Switzerland, my motherland...there's only about two poor people over there, I call that financially savvy. 8: I'm trying to wait until John Mayer finally marries some crusty clown so I can steal him, that's the master plan. *Don't care so passionately, they do not care what we think. At all. :true:

"but why*, not then why" is what I meant to say in my first sentence.

I know this may sound ridiculous to some of you, then why don't you just skip these posts if you dislike them so much? It just contributes to their popularity on this site if you post about them. If we see posts about Brad & Angelina 3 times a day, then I would agree with you but the past several months have been lacking in Jolie-Pitt pictures so this is finally making up for it.

I'm glad that Angelina said this, it was lovely to read about how much she loves ALL of her children. Hopefully those rumors about her "hating" Shiloh can be put to rest :oy: ilek, thank you for posting more from the article!

She's a polarizing figure - no doubt about it.

I admire her. Brad, not so much. *By the number of comments on Jolie's recent posts I guess she's going to be # 1 on Pop's list again next year.

One thing that I don't understand is: If you dislike,hate,not impressed any other disparaging remarks WHY are you here posting??? Everytime that there is a post about Brad and Angie I can make a bet that the usual suspects will be here saying the same nagative stuff over and over again. Aren't you tired of bashing? I'm almost sure that you would be a lot happier if you practice abstinence and not post, try it. By the way ILEK you rock!!

These two are getting really really tiresome. She likes the way her babies "sniff" each other..OK :oy: I have never heard someone say "I can't explain it" sooooo many times in an interview before. That must be her new phrase because she totally WORE IT OUT! For someone who pretends to be so perfect in almost every way, and has no troubles or problems with her 6 kids or her husband, she sure can't explain a lot of what's going on around her. It's a smoke screen. Sorry AJ lovers, Life is just NOT that Perfect. She's an actor and she's acting. It's Impossible to NEVER have problems arise. NO ONE is happy and smiling every minute of the day. She pretends that she, her husband, and her kids are happy happy happy every day of every week..and they love flying around the world at the drop of a hat. Sorry, but I don't buy it. Who would like to be cooped up on a plane, ears popping, and nothing to see but starring out of your window for hours on end while listening to the roar of engines all around you? If that is a beautiful life, then she doesn't know what real living is like. She's living in a fantasy world.

I think she's grown a lot and they seem to truely love eachorther. I would not pop out 3 kids for a man if i didn't love him. I've never met angelina, she's never done anything wrong to me so i have no reason to hate her or dislike her. I have no idea what happened between Brad and jennifer so i can't judge them.. All i can say is i've never seen brad this happy before, He really wanted children and angelina gave him 6 children. I'm happy for them, i hope they stop living in sin and tie the knot. brad is getting older not younger. and I don't think they will break up. I believe the truly love eachother.

ok - we all know that i'm not a fan of angies - so these responses are soo not believable to me. i can't stand her and how coached some of these things sound. 'she didn't want to have babies the natural way'? really? then go on BC...seriously. i don't know - i think that it would take a lot for me to be more of a fan and this is NOT the way to go.

I think these two deserve each other, she loves to tell the world intimate details of her life, and now he can take pics of intimate parts of thier lives..and charge for them...When they can give 250 million dollars to charity like Paul Newman, and stay out of the spotlight while thier doing it, then I will be impressed with AJ and BP..Paul has 5 daughters, and I never saw one pic of any of them.

SHE JUST ANSWERED THE VERY QUESTION AL HER HATERS WANT TO KNOW. How come she "lied" and said she never have a biological child? I saw many many comments on Popsugar back in that time period refering to this. Now she answered the very question reguarding the situation everyone gave her crap for, but now she is attention whore? Hollywood actors = Attention Whores-period. Blame them all, each and everyone of them. Do not think for one second that some of your favorite stars are any different, they just do not get the same opportunties at the Pitts because people do not care as much.

i cant wait till this issue comes out. I want to read more about their family. I think what there doing is great. It makes you wonder would we do the same thing if we were in there position. Would we travel the world and try to make a better place for some people that need it.
