Angelina Jolie: I'm Just a Mom First and Foremost

Angelina Jolie: I'm Just a Mom First and Foremost

Angelina Jolie take Pax, 3, and Zahara, 2, to school at the American Embassy compound on Monday morning in Prague, Czech Republic.

The Hollywood humanitarian is profiled in the Spring/Summer 2007 issue of Caesars Player, the luxury lifestyle and gaming magazine of Caesars.

On her most important role she’s ever played: “I’m just a Mom first and foremost. I’m very grounded by my family. I’m so lucky. The world can like me, hate me, fall apart around me, and at least when I wake up with my little kids, I’m happy.”

On her guide to parenting coming from her own mother: “I was raised by my mother to be honest and straightforward. I tend to do that very boldly. I’ve always been encouraged to be one hundred percent who I am. Now, when I talk to my own kids, I sometimes realize I’m talking to them like my mom talked to me.”

On what keeps her and Brad Pitt together: “It should be about that kind of depth of understanding you can have with another person. It goes beyond the superficial and the physical. I find it very sensual when a couple can look deeply into each other’s souls and hearts. There are very few people who can hold me when I cry and talk to me about my life and say, ‘I believe in you.’

    She looks tired though but it’s understandable after all the jungle sex she’s been up to with brad :P

    —————————————-

    Exactly ! I don’t understand why people keep on bringing up her weight loss. I mean we all know the circumstances.

    Her skinniness is PUNCTUAL, ugliness, on the other hand, is PERMANENT.

    She is gaining them back at her pace. It goes hand in hand with the pain resulting of her grief. She is healthy enough and will pack the whole of it ultimately.

  • LMM

    They are a truely happy family. Now it´s time to concentrate on getting a bit of weight back on, before she starts to do some serious demage to her heart and other internal organs. She seems such a fabulous and concencous parent, and part of that is to maintain your own presonal health for the sake of the children. Lets hope the year off does the trick!

  • rancour

    Wow, Mad is growing so fast. I still can’t believe he was such a cutie baby few years back. In 4 or 5 years from now he’ll be Angie’s height.

    Angelina lost some weight (in a natural skinny person like she is, it becomes more noticeble), she will not get it back right way…

    It gets tired hearing every time a photo comes out: she’s shinny, she’s skinny… Please… She has acknowledge that, we all know that, give the women time…

    Thank you JJ!

    Kidz are so, so cute! ALL of them.

  • bdj

    Thanks Just Jared. AJ looks great, happy and relax. She is working those boobs and the junk in the trunk. I am sure that Papa Pitt was a happy camper over the weekend. Pax and Zahara are too cute. Pax seems to have this new confidence and is giving the paps the eye like his sister. The pictures of the children crack me up. They are adorable. Thanks for all you do Just Jared. Best wishes to BAMPZS and peace to all.

    She still look tired but it’s understandable especially after a wild weekend of jungle sex.

    Hey you, mphh*ck off! Lol, looks like she’s trying to say that. Okay do not teach kids to swear.

    I came to NY last Friday and tried to find theaters showing AMH, but could not. The 1300 something opening sites means that you have to really search for the theaters.

    I have not seen the movie so far (as I mentioned I contacted several theaters nearby but they did not carry AMH – too bad). I do not know where to go to see it. I am now in Flushing, NY. If anybody knows how to search for the theater, help me please.

    ((( New Yorker fans, let’s help NaNa)))
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    i went to college in NY so I can help a little.

    Pick up the VIllage Voice or go to villagevoice.com for info

    Call theaters like the Film Forum downtown or the Angelika (if it still exists) and see if they have it. They are Art House theaters.

    Also check out the Lincoln Center cinemas.

    Again, just go to villagevoice.com. Best way to get info on ANY films in the city.

    This movie will blow you away!

    Both thanks so much. The villagevoice.com site was very helpful. I will take my son (15 years old) with me.

  • rancour

    Ok, I get it. Comments with links await moderation right? Oh well, I give up.

  • think positive!

    Wow!! Jared you are so fast man!! LOL!!

    Zee is cracking me up with her adorable facial expressions and chuckles to the paps lately.LOL!!!

    Pax is starting to join the club too. Madd is the zen master like his dad. He is sooo above them. He just walks by and say “Oh please. Paparazzi who??” LMAO!!

    Angie is looking mighty relaxed and refreshed!!

    This past weekend must have been very good for them!! ;)

  • rancour

    **********************************

    Le sigh…. From the way Angie has been talking about him, I would say Brad has managed to penetrate Angie’s tough girl exterior and break down alot of the defense mechanisms she had been using for past years to protect herself and keep people from getting too close to the real Angie.

    I think if she were asked that
    “trust” question again, this time she would have a different answer. It sounds like she trusts Brad most of all. She certainly has never spoken of any of the other men this way. She’s completely in love.

    (Ocean 13 reaches 100 million overseas)
    Shrek the Third” led the foreign box office with a weekend haul of $48.6 million from 45 markets, according to studio estimates issued Sunday.

    “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer” followed with $22.1 million from 44 markets, while “Ocean’s Thirteen” nabbed $21.3 million from 49 markets.

    The total for “Shrek” rose to $171.1 million, while “Silver Surfer” has picked up $50.3 million, and “Ocean’s Thirteen” $100 million.

    “but to be honest,i would love to be in anjies lbs.its just so hard.”

    Don’t! It’s not healthy to be so thin. It’s better for a woman to have a bit of meat on her bones. Try to work out 3 times a week and eat healthy. I think Shakira has a great body.

  • Angie’s fan

    Love you Angelina Jolie.You are my idol.

  • ida

    hi bampzs,cute pics,jj thanks alot

  • ida

    wow angies boobs look bigger to me has anyone else notice.i hope they had a nice mini vaccation

  • Coco

    Thanks for the many pics, threads and articles on Angelina. She is inspiring: Be honest, straightforward, bold and know who you are… and above all love the kids also in our souls. We all have our “petit prince” or “petite princess”

  • Chichi

    I hope she does not let them have live in boyfriends at 12 like she did, but I guess that is too much to hope for. She should be careful having Brad as a soulmate, he after all said he and Aniston wer ture loves and Aniston was the love of his life.

    That said, her movie is doing badly at the box office and no amount of kid parading will help that. I guess more people are seeing her for the fraud she is.

  • gab

    Looking good:)

    40 Chichi , just for you:

    “I’m just a Mom first and foremost. I’m very grounded by my family. I’m so lucky. The world can like me, hate me, fall apart around me, and at least when I wake up with my little kids, I’m happy .”

  • Molly

    I wonder if the trip to Spain was Brad’s Father Day present?

    Didn’t Brad once say something about thinking the Guggenheim Museum there was “sexy”, or something like that?

    It would be along the same line as her birthday gift to him, which was the trip to Fallingwater. Thoughtful Angie!

    To add, yes, I read that one of you guys said that the weekend getaway must be a signal that Pax is adjusting. They seem to be great parents!

    They have many things to celebrate!

  • ida

    40 says what are you talking about,is so early for stupid comments,go back to bed.people have alreadty talked about it,the movie was not expected to be a big hit,go find the defination of so so,before you start your useless rants

  • Nina

    100 million overseas for a picture like Oceans 13 in the 3rd week is too miserly. It should have done that in the first week with its star cast ensemble I guess Brad Pulled it down like he did Babel.

    By the way, a mighty heart is also struggling!

  • Korona

    oh is it true chichi? u had live in boyfriend at 12? what sort of mama did u have? sex at 12?? omg! what a little slut u r. now u boast about it in this blog? shame on ya.

  • What?

    40 Chichi | 06/25/2007 at 7:51 am

    I hope she does not let them have live in boyfriends at 12 like she did, but I guess that is too much to hope for. She should be careful having Brad as a soulmate, he after all said he and Aniston wer ture loves and Aniston was the love of his life.
    ———————————————–

    LMAO. Brad Pitt never said that. In fact he said the opposite when married to Aniston. Need anyone forget both their infamous 2003 interviews. His saying he doesn’t believe that you can be with one person for your whole life and Aniston saying Brad wasn’t the love of her life but a love in her life. Please
