Angelina Jolie: “The Center Of My Life Is My Kids”

Angelina Jolie recently sat down with LA Times to talk about her critically acclaimed performance in her new film Changeling. The 33-year-old actress also opened up about her high-profile family and her career choices now that she is a mother.

On her recent return from a mission in Afghanistan where she met with poverty-stricken families as a goodwill ambassador for the U.N.: “I woke up at 3 in the morning with four kids with jet lag and two babies. I put myself together for a few hours and go out. And then I go home. This is my job.” While trying not to sound ungrateful about Hollywood, she added, “I don’t dislike it here, I just really do love to travel. I love other cultures. And I love raising my kids in the world. I’m so fortunate that I get to do that.” She went on to say that her family life is what is most important to her: “The center of my life is my kids.”

On her recent role as a mother who loses her son in Changeling: “Christine fought so hard under such incredible circumstance for the rights of other women. It was a real story that I thought sent a positive message about what you can accomplish. About democracy in action.”

On the fact that Changeling is her fourth-consecutive mom-centric film: “I don’t think it’s a choice of mine as much as it is something women deal with when we get older. A woman in her 30s is more likely to have roles that in some way relate to family.” She added “I got pregnant right in the middle of it and I think partially because of it,” she said, smiling. “I was so emotional about children that I think something in me kicked into gear.”

    well, good for her…i get tired of her sanctimonious comments…plus that photo above is one of the scariest pics i have ever seen of her…she looks truly demonic…not to say that she doesnt do good for her causes & she isnt usually gorgeous…i just tire of hearing from her.

    Yep, this definitely isn’t her best photo. Look at her hand. Scary.
    I’ve yet to see Changeling, but from all the reviews I’ve read it seems to be a rather mixed performance and movie and not “critically acclaimed”.

    sometimes I wonder what Brad and Angelina would be without the kids? she is obviously extremely committed to them…and more and more of them. but she can’t commit to brad? just seems kind of off to me…i could be wrong
