In a candid interview with Vogue, Angelina Jolie reflects on the challenges and triumphs of motherhood and the profound impact it has had on her life since her split from former husband Brad Pitt. The Hollywood icon also touched upon the resilience of her family in the face of adversity.
Jolie, now 48, shared her profound transformation since becoming a mother at the age of 26, saying, “I was 26 when I became a mother. My entire life changed. Having children saved me — and taught me to be in this world differently.” The actress and humanitarian emphasized the significance of her role as a mother in shaping her life and outlook.
In the interview, Jolie expressed her deep love and dedication to her children, stating, “I think, recently, I would’ve gone under in a much darker way had I not wanted to live for them. They’re better than me, because you want your children to be.” Jolie and Pitt, who first crossed paths on the set of “Mr. & Mrs. Smith,” share six children: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Vivienne and Knox.
The conversation also delved into Jolie’s personal journey at this stage in her life. She revealed, “I’m still understanding who I am at 48. I guess I’m in transition as a person. I don’t feel like I’ve been myself for a decade, in a way, which I don’t want to get into,” hinting at the complexities and changes she has experienced over the years.
Moreover, Jolie acknowledged the challenging times her family has faced since the high-profile divorce from Pitt in 2016. She shared, “We had a lot of healing to do. We’re still finding our footing.” This glimpse into the actress’s life offers a touching and relatable perspective on the evolving nature of motherhood, personal growth, and resilience in the face of life’s trials.
