Angelina Jolie recently sat down for a candid interview with Entertainment Weekly, and spoke of her old persona and her current family life.
Angelina was questioned by Entertainment Weekly about people being unable to reconcile her old persona, where she talked about knives and cutting, and her life now as a mother and an activist.
Jolie states, “But again, it’s not that different. The reason I talked about going through certain pains or even cutting myself is that I was already out the other side. I knew there were people that do that “” and somehow are happy that somebody admitted they did and discussed how they got out of it. I don’t see the point of doing an interview unless you’re going to share the things you learn in life and the mistakes you make. So to admit that I’m extremely human and have done some dark things, I don’t think makes me unusual or unusually dark. I think it actually is the right thing to do and I’d like to think it’s the nice thing to do.”
On Billy Bob Thornton and the rumored vial of blood worn around her neck, Jolie says, “No! It was never a vial anyway. It was like a flower press. It was like from a slight cut on your finger and you press your fingerprint in. It was kind of a sweet gesture. I thought it was kind of romantic! I still love him dearly and think the world of him and I’m proud to have been his wife for a time. I don’t believe in regrets. It’s a dangerous habit to get into “” it makes you pause in your life if you start thinking back and questioning yourself.”
Angelina talks a bit about her extremes and said, “Well, certain things are private! But there’s a side of us that’s so mommy-daddy and then there’s a side of us that’s…very man and woman. I’ll leave it at that. We both like to ride motorcycles, we both like to fly planes, that’s the spirited side of us. Then the other side of us is very focused on silly mommy-daddy things. So I guess that’s extremes, but I just think of that as balance.”
Being pregnant with twins currently, Angelina was asked if pregnancy was bad for their sex life and responded saying, “No, I think it’s quite the opposite. It’s great for the sex life. It just makes you a lot more creative. So you have fun, and as a woman you’re just so round and full.”
Angelina Jolie has made many changes in her life the past several years. Do you prefer the dark Angelina of years ago or the mother and activist she is today?
