Angelina Jolie: Reader's Digest Interview

Angelina Jolie: Reader's Digest Interview

Angelina Jolie goes face-to-face with Reader’s Digest in their June 2007 issue, opening up about her sexy partner, four adorable kids, and a family going global. Here are a few of the highlights:

Is it true that you adopted Pax so Maddox would have a brother who looked like him? Something changed for me with Shiloh. We had Mad and Z, and neither looked like Mommy or Daddy. Then suddenly somebody in the house looked like Mommy and Daddy. It became clear to us that it might be important to have somebody around who is similar to the other children so they have a connection. Mad’s been very excited that his brother is from Asia.

Is adopting a toddler different? Pax is almost three and a half and has never made a real decision for himself because everybody does everything in a group in the orphanage. There were all these things he’d never had. The first time I gave him a bath, he was suddenly laughing, out of his mind. He took five baths in one day. We’d be talking and he’d take his clothes off and run into the bathroom.

Do you and Brad ever have a conflict or a fight? Not really. We’ll get into issues about global events or something that was just on the news.

The gossip is unrelenting. You’re fighting, you’re jealous, he’s going back to Jennifer. Does it get to you? Our first question is what paper is it in. The New York Times? If not, do we really need to worry?

Do you want more children? Yeah, yeah. More biological, more adopted.

Great interview. I love the part about Pax taking 5 baths in one day. Except the the millions of dollars, and the crazy fame, this family is just like any other well adjusted growing clan.

She’s just really over-analyzing psychologically the whole chid-rearing thing. May be she’s got some emotional scarring from her own childhood, but that doesn’t mean those kids will.
Lighten up, Angelina!

Maybe she is just answering the questions the interviewer is asking?

Her sexy HUSBAND? haha. Not.married.

GOD BLESS THE JOLIE-PITTS @ 05/10/2007 at 12:32 pm


Excellent interview!

Wasn’t the notorious article by Caryn James from the New York Times?
Read the whole thing, they asked her about that piece.

It seems.. @ 05/10/2007 at 12:33 pm

It sounds like they will adopt another African girl (for Z)and have another biological child(for Shi). They will have a total of six children, and everybody will be happy.

Thanks Jared. Great Interview…They are a wonderful couple and seems to love each other and their childred. Love them

On what Pitt finds sexy about her: “I could be dressed up in the sexiest outfit for a photo shoot, and by his behavior, he’ll let me know that’s nice, but it’s nothing as sexy as when I’m home surrounded by the kids or reading books, educating myself.” —I LOVE THAT PATRT

Way to go Angie! @ 05/10/2007 at 12:34 pm

Reader’s Digest is read by over 70 million people world-wide in different languages.

This beautiful interview will be read by so many people.

Thanks Jared!

Great interview and I couldn’t be prouder to be a fan of Angie.

Rock on Jolie-Pitts!!!!

I hope a Mighty Heart is seen by many people and that the message they want to convey – that we’re all the same no matter where you’re from – gets out to many more.

more kids = more population = more pollution = more global warming = killing more Africans in the future according to the latest official UN survey.

Thanks Jared!!! Great article. What a wonderful family.

This must be THE DEAL between Angie and Brad after every two adopted kids, one bio kid. Sounds very logical?

You are still trying hard to change the subject by making fun of misspelling of treat and threat; ANSWER THE DAMN QUESTION FIRST. You can’t, can you?

It was Brad who fell in love Angie, but Angie was just looking for a loving, suitable father for her adopted kids. At the same time she had to comprimise something. The bio kid(S) Brad has been longing to have. Otherwise Brad could have walked away as he did with Gwyneth and Jennifer. Brad loved Gwyneth and Jennifer but at the end he left them for a reason.

After Mad and Z, here we go Shiloh, now Pax and sometime soon another black girl then it will be Brad’s turn second bio child. Everybody gets what they want. Happy endings

great interview,loving woman.angie adores brad and the kids.this is why people respect her.i she is a role model, there are few like her.god bless her
