Photos of Angelina Jolie Who Talks About Adoption, Her Family

Leggy Angelina Talks Racy Photos and Having No Regrets

Angelina Jolie looked amazingly leggy in her short black dress at yesterday's Kung Fu Panda DVD release celebration at Grauman's Chinese Theater in LA. The youthful looking actress posed with her costars in the movie Jack Black and Dustin Hoffman and chatted about her smiley twins. While she always has a big smile when promoting the animated film, she is still doing the rounds talking about Changeling. Unsurprisingly, her openness is her blessing and her curse in the latest interview. Here are highlights:

  • On talking about adoption: “We talk about orphanages, we talk about their countries and differences, and it’s a source of excitement and pride. I’ve heard Maddox explain to Zahara when they are talking about pregnancy, ‘No, Zee, remember, you were in that nice African woman’s belly. I was in that nice Cambodian woman’.”
  • On life: “I’m one of those people who believes you just can’t regret things in life. You have to feel confident that it was all part of the journey . . . If you start to regret, start to hesitate and question every move to make, then you live in some different way,” she says. “And for all the craziness I’ve done, I’ve never hurt anybody.”
  • On the W Photo shoot: “I’d just had the kids six weeks before and felt so private, it didn’t feel right having a photographer fly across the world with a rack of stylish clothes for me to wear. . . It became this one-week project in our house,” Jolie says. The way she tells it, matters quickly got out of hand, and some of the photographs proved far too sexual to be released on an unsuspecting American audience. “Yeah, we thought about it, we’d look at the pictures as art and say this is a really interesting photograph, but then we’d know better and we’d think about how it was going to be received. So we made it a little more tame than it was originally.”

To see lots more photos and read what she has to say about their family just

.

  • On their family: “Early on when we met, we had this time when we were working together and we just spent it discussing how we saw our lives and what our plans were for the future. And there was a day when we both talked about wanting a large family. At the time I was thinking of only adoptive children, but he saw a big family mixed with adoptive and born children. And I ended up falling in love with a man who I think was destined to have children and suddenly one day it felt right and there it was.”
  • On the kids growing up and finding out about her past: “I think it’s going to be that they’ll understand they can talk to me about everything, and that by the time they get to be teenagers we’ll have formed a sufficient bond,” she says. “We tell them everything, we’re honest with them. My mother was that way with me.”

When the kids grow up there will be plenty to read about both mom and dad, but they have nothing but love and sweet words for their big family. Well, other than when Brad is telling embarrassing stories on TV.

Well, personally I don't love or hate her. How could I? I don't know her!

Angie didn't say anything about "apologizing", She said she doesn't believe in regretting your past life. She apologized to Jack Black, she has apologized for the press restrictions during the AMH premiere and she sent a letter of apology to the parents at Lycee Francais in NYC. She and Brad has Maddox write a note of apology to the owner of their house in Alberta for breaking a flowerpot. Sometimes non-fans act like AJ committed crimes in the past. But, she does examine her life choices or her actions. She made a major life change in 2001 that she has talked and written about. She has said she wanted to know the wider world after being shocked at what she saw in Cambodia. Angie made those changes and focused her life in a different direction. AJ has said before that she has never hurt anyone INTENTIONALLY. The magazine may have edited her response. Fans and non-fans alike post here and need to be responsible for what they post, obviously, but I find it bizarre that non-fans think they are being attacked. This website is anti-AJ and most of the posters are neutral or anti-AJ. Angie's fans here are some of he most gentle and polite you will ever encounter.

And that thing about her not apologizing for who she is, I admire that I do, I think it's fantastic but you should also examine yourself when people are pointing out something isn't right about the way you are as a human. Don't ever ever ever have yes people all the time. It seems she does!

Who has ever said Angie has issues about keep enlarging her family is spot on! My GOD! I think it is to fulfill a mission of the rainbow family! I bet you we will hear one of her child talks badly about her as a mum when they are teenagers. She adopted Pax when Shiloh was just a baby and her mum has just died, HELLO.......can you spot something? Is this normal when your parent passes away?

Good lord people, why does every story about this couple include JA?? The broke up, and each moved on! I seriously doubt that she is affected by these stories.

Man I'm pretty sure most of you have gotten over your own personal break ups faster than Brad and Jen's. Holy cow it's been over 3 years. ------------ Jen also moved on when she went out with Vince...three weeks after signing the divorce paper and weeks before seeing that picture of Brad and Angie and Mad. So sorry, but no woman or man can pretend beeing shocked and feeling betrayed when going out with someone else also and so soon. It's kinda of decridibilise and deflect the extent of the hurt feelings. You cannot have it both ways ! So all the bitterness and rehass are from people who were not even intimate with them to know all the facts and who are transferring their own life in it. It's sad after a year, it's desperate after 2 years, it's pathetic after three years, it's kinda tragic after 4 years ! Being angry and frustrated at a divorce of a celeb couple happening 4 years ago! You would think that during those 4 years, there were no divorce, no break-up among their entourage, relatives, friends, ect in the real life. Divorce that often goes hand in hand with children, loss of a shelter, financial shortage, ect. Living by proxy for so long is kinda patological.

I will never ever ever talk about Angelina and Jennifer again after this post... I'm just sick of it. There is no cookie cutter answer to what happened. The only people who really know are Angelina, Brad and Jen. I don't condone cheating or betrayal. We've all been there, whether it was with a spouse, friend, or family member (This one was a recent personal situation). Yet, I also don't like this unhealthy way we all have of dwelling on these things (especially when they have nothing to do with us). We've all got hearts so consequently we will all have heartaches. I have no reason to dislike any of them based on this single event. If oneday, someone cheats on me or someone I love, I KNOW that I will be both angry and miserable. I'd hope to be able to move on though to another chapter in my life. The last thing I have to say on the thing is that I hope that they all find and keep happiness.

caty 122:and to the whole she broke up brad and jens family they didn't have a family, they had no kids together. ive said it once and i'll say it again. u dont need kids to have a family. what about all the couples out there who are not able to have a child? are they not a family? sometimes, u need to think before u talk. i hate it when the loons go out to defend AJ. and this is just one of the situations: she didnt hurt anyone? im sure laura dern wouldnt agree. and im definitely sure JA wouldnt agree. i mean u can defend her all u want saying their marriage was already over. but its black and white. after the filming of MAMS, jen and brad were still seen out and about. maybe they were trying to fix their relationship, it shows that they (JA and brad) at least cared for one another. and one more thing, AJ coming out and gushing "i fell in love with brad on the set of MAMS" is just sad. wtf is she trying to prove? is she trying to tell everyone she bagged a married man? i used to rlly rlly like AJ especially when she first adopted maddox. i thought she was really beautiful. but since hooking up with brad, i started to rlly hate her and she jst didnt seem so beautiful to me anymore. sometimes, when i look at her pics, i even see an ugly person, the ugliness inside her. and she's far from perfect!

Wow...Angelina looks amazingly great here! She's just walking perfection. I love Kung Fu Panda, too! The "I never hurt anyone" line, though, makes sense when you couple it with the no regrets line. Surely, people have unintentionally been hurt by her antics, but that's not her doing/her problem...it's theirs. Think about it.... PS: Why is it that people on here can't leave the Jennifer Aniston comments off of an Angelina Jolie post?! (yes, and vice versa)

I can't imagine people hanging on every word that comes out of my mouth. I get what she's saying and maybe that's because I'm not hung up on over analyzing every single thing she says. She looks beautiful but her legs are too thin to be wearing such a short dress.

what? Yoyo, Mae, or whatever you want to call yourself now. Really can you please leave the personal attack to yourself. I like coming here and I'm tired of you or whoever you want to be today coming on here attacking me. I've been to all of the posts on and have posted on all. And so what If I come on an Angelina post? Or anyone else for the matter. I'm having fun but you lady need to take some pill or something and Pink I do think that girl might have been referring to you.

I'll agree with you guys on that I think she's to open about her private life. There's stuff that we really don't need or want to know. However I think some people on here and other sites just take things too seriously when it comes to some celebs. My position on most celebs is pretty much neutral. I like them but I'm not going to spent the time either worshiping the ground they walk on or going from site to site just to say how much I hate them. They're not worth that much of my time. Unfortunately with AJ as you said Mykie, it's either you like her or you don't. But some people on both sides take things to far and there are some on here who I would highly recommend seeing a therapist cause they're just ridiculous with it. Anyways I'm glad to finally finish packing. Mini-vacation here I come! 2 days in L.A. and a week in Toyko. And Pink I'm still in shock :D

"In a recent interview, Jess said she likes to "protect" her life by concentrating conversations on her career rather than her personal affairs." Angelina should take a clue from this idiot
pinkprincess1101 pinkprincess1101 8 years
Mykie I'm good, I have a question for the fans what makes you more right than a non fan, what if the non fans end up the right ones, who really cares what people say about her I doubt she cares that you defend her as she can careless what the non fans say, I mean those are her words

so true--regret really is draining. i know dwelling on past mistakes and misgivings is just not worth it in the long run, but i'm still learning. and i do like her hair lighter but she's gorgeous regardless IMO :)

:WAVE: HI PINKYP!!!!! :HUG: How ya doin? You're right, it's not serious, I'm just bored. LMAO Nora, I think with AJ, if you know who she is you either adore her or you can't stand her. There's not much middle ground. It's like that with many celebrities, and because they're in the public eye they're open for ridicule and speculation. Does that make it right? No, it doesn't, but there it is. My thought on this is that people that don't like her, dislike some very specific things that have personal meaning to them. I know that's it for me. But all this time I say I dislike HER, however I can't really dislike HER because I don't know her at all. What I dislike is what she represents. Much as the people that truly adore her love her for what she represents. There's nothing wrong with that either. We all identify with different people for different reasons. I think my biggest gripe is that when I say I don't like her for one reason or another, I get a barrage of people telling me I'm wrong for those reasons. I've been guilty of telling people that DO like her that they shouldn't because of MY reasons. I'm no more right to tell them NOT to like her than they are to tell me I SHOULD like her. The biggest thing to remember is this site is full of opinions, 99% of them don't jive and that's OK. It's OK not to think like everyone else, it's OK not to like a celebrity that everyone else does, it's OK to LIKE a celebrity that others may not. It's called individuality. We all have it, and it should be embraced, not scorned.

" And for all the craziness I've done I've never hurt anybody" :ROTFL: :ROTFL: Simply priceless.......:oy: She needs to snap out of her perfect little fantasy world and come back to reality because she's starting to believe all the overexposed hype about herself.

Thank you Soulkey! Celebrities are human beings and I am so getting sick of seeing them treated as a some kind of a species of their own. Who cares that things are not black and white! Jennifer Aniston is probably upset, I would be if my husband had left me for another woman and I would constantly have to read in the tabloids how happy he is with someone else. But even then, it would be nobody's business but my own how long it would take me to get over it, just like it would be nobody's business but the three people involved to judge what was wrong and what was not in how the details of the matter were dealt with. Unless of course you happen to know these people personally and are actually asked for some kind of an opinion! What is with the harsh judgements!?
