Vanity Fair And Angelina Jolie – The Big, Post-Brad, Interview

Story from: 2oceansvibe.com

It has been 10 months since the world’s most glamorous celeb couple called it quits.

While Brad Pitt was the first to get his emotions off his chest in an interview with GQ Style [here] in May, reeling in sympathisers with that awkward self-aware photoshoot, Angelina Jolie’s interview is a little more candid, a little more straight.

To prove that, this is the quote that’s been pulled the most from the interview featured on the cover of this month’s Vanity Fair:

I think it’s very important to cry in the shower and not in front of the children. They need to know that everything’s going to be all right even when you’re not sure it is.

Cold as ice or a protective mother?

Although there are snippets of emotion and trauma scattered throughout the interview, the bulk of it focuses on Cambodia, the country which her eldest son, Maddox, is from:

Jolie has directed a moving, large-scale adaptation of First They Killed My Father, Loung Ung’s 2000 memoir of the Khmer Rouge genocide, in which Ung’s parents and two of her siblings perished, along with an estimated two million other Cambodians, a quarter of the country’s population.

Shot entirely in Cambodia, and in the Khmer language, the film, a Netflix original, is the largest production the country has witnessed since the war, and according to the reports of several Cambodians who’ve seen it, it’s one of the most revelatory pieces of art about that chapter in the country’s history, a history that’s still difficult for Cambodians to discuss.

But if Cambodians consider the film to be something of a gift, then it’s surely a thank-you gift. For Jolie, Cambodia is where she started her family, and it’s where she made a cathartic personal transformation, becoming the woman she is today.

You can watch it on Netflix right now.

Touching on Pitt, Jolie addresses the tabloid rumours which suggested the couple’s split was due to “lifestyle” differences, and “praised her children for how they have coped with the situation,” reports HuffPost:

“[Our lifestyle] was not in any way a negative. That was not the problem,” she said. “That is and will remain one of the wonderful opportunities we are able to give our children… They’re six very strong-minded, thoughtful, worldly individuals. I’m very proud of them.

“They’ve been very brave. They were very brave… In times they needed to be.

“They’re all just healing from the events that led to the filing… They’re not healing from divorce. They’re healing from some… from life, from things in life.”

“I was very worried about my mother, growing up—a lot. I do not want my children to be worried about me.

“I think it’s very important to cry in the shower and not in front of them. They need to know that everything’s going to be all right even when you’re not sure it is.”

There’s a selection of elegant photographs, reminding us that Jolie is a woman that keeps up appearances, makes sure everything is okay, and offers endless support to those she has brought into her life.
