Angelina Jolie: Brad Pitt is Hard to Shop For!

Angelina Jolie: Brad Pitt is Hard to Shop For!

Angelina Jolie gave a refreshingly candid interview to Entertainment Weekly while checking out a window display of Corum watches at the Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat in the south of France.

On her partner not being easy to buy things for: “Brad is the hardest person to shop for. ‘He has impeccable design taste. And whenever he sees something he likes, he buys it for himself.”

On Brad’s most recent gift to her (a gun-charm necklace she wore to her EW photo shoot): ”Mad, our 6-year-old, draws lots of war scenarios. He’s all into war and guns. So for Mother’s Day he drew a machine gun, and Brad had it made into a necklace, which is really sweet. It’s really cute. I think it’s really good!”

On some people who can’t reconcile her old persona, where she talked about knives and cutting, with her more recent identity as a mother and activist: “But again, it’s not that different. The reason I talked about going through certain pains or even cutting myself is that I was already out the other side. I knew there were people that do that — and somehow are happy that somebody admitted they did and discussed how they got out of it. I don’t see the point of doing an interview unless you’re going to share the things you learn in life and the mistakes you make. So to admit that I’m extremely human and have done some dark things, I don’t think makes me unusual or unusually dark. I think it actually is the right thing to do and I’d like to think it’s the nice thing to do.”

On anything she’s said that she wishes she hadn’t (like all that business about wearing the vial of Billy Bob Thornton’s blood around your neck when you two were married): “No! It was never a vial anyway. It was like a flower press. It was like from a slight cut on your finger and you press your fingerprint in. It was kind of a sweet gesture. I thought it was kind of romantic! I still love him dearly and think the world of him and I’m proud to have been his wife for a time. I don’t believe in regrets. It’s a dangerous habit to get into — it makes you pause in your life if you start thinking back and questioning yourself.”

On people saying being pregnant is bad for one’s sex life: “No, I think it’s quite the opposite. It’s great for the sex life. It just makes you a lot more creative. So you have fun, and as a woman you’re just so round and full.”

On Brad’s new tattoo: “I drew that. We went to Davos. It’s not that we were bored at the World Economic Forum, but one night we didn’t have anything to do, so I was drawing on his back.”

  • Amalia

    i love her!!!

  • KAKE

    Pathetic woman, how can she let her child love war and guns then say she is trying to end war? She says she had four men and now it wasn’t not a vial of blood. She is trying to rewrite her history.

    Brad has style? Which one, he wears one torn grey and white t- shirt.

  • /

    to #3… no i think you are the one who is “totally sick and f-ed up!” How do you come to a conclusion like that from this article??? I thought it was a great article and has many great quotes.

  • Dancer

    Great interview! You can just see the bonds she and Brad have forged for themselves and the children! And how very much they love each other and the kids!

  • Orchid

    Oops, I was beaten by kake, an idiot!

  • angel

    love it,the interview is so cute,thanks jared,as for the basta*d troll just ignore

  • lia

    love this interview!

  • angel

    i think we will see more babies,these two are hot and heavy

  • Dancer

    Kake and her ilk are coming out of the wood work because they can’t stand to see AJ and BP happy and in love and so together. Therefore they have to childishly try and ruin it for everyone else. Guess no matter how old they are, they have a mental of age of three or four. Or is that insulting a toddler?

  • karol

    when did she say she loves war?? and for that matter, when did she say she was trying to stop war?

    She didnt say either.

    COOL INTERVIEW

  • STEPHANIE lEE

    On Brad’s new tattoo: “I drew that. We went to Davos. It’s not that we were bored at the World Economic Forum, but one night we didn’t have anything to do, so I was drawing on his back.”

  • Some chick

    ”So instead of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, this is just Mrs. Smith.”

    LMAO!

  • tabitha

    I loved the interview. I can’t wait to see The Wanted. If there is a sequal , I hope we will see Angelina in it.

  • !!!!

    You should have posted the part about her worshipers and haters.

  • Orange Clockwork

    What a boring cover.

  • Lady g

    Angie Rocks!!!!!

  • sam stevens

    love the both of them. saw these amazing new photos on prothinspo of the two of them and just loving em and their new babies to be..

  • Orange Clockwork

    Also, don’t mean to spam, but isn’t she suppose to be promoting her new film and NOT herself? Oh, I forgot, it’s her.

  • huh

    ”So instead of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, this is just Mrs. Smith.”

    LMAO!
    =============================
    you are very dumb.

    ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: I was describing the plot of Wanted to a friend and she said, ”So instead of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, this is just Mrs. Smith.”
    ANGELINA JOLIE: Maybe this is Mrs. Smith after she killed Mr. Smith, went into depression, and got very, very, very moody. Fox is not happy, and she’s not easy to be around. She was interesting to me because she isn’t the love interest and she isn’t having fun with it like the Tomb Raider. She’s darker.

  • angel

    kake/helena/dj/ritzy,is crazzzzzy

  • estelle

    Great Interview, I really like this interview much more than the VF. Thank you Jared and Tabitha.

  • Shar

    I like this interview!!!!

  • besane

    KAKE: Go on back to the FF cesspool. You look too stupid here out in the real world.

  • besane

    Orange Clockwork

    And you too, off to FF you go back.

  • Shar

    test

  • besane

    This is a very nice interview, and she is explaining what others always misinterpret. It must be so tiring to talk over and over again about the same thing to idiots.

    I love the part that she drew on Brad’s back. Gosh, as Lainey said to be a fly on the wall of their bedroom would cure any kind of performance disorders LOL!

  • estelle

    What a beautiful cover, I can’t wait to get my EW.

  • bdj

    Great interview. Thanks for posting. I like AJ candid manner. She is bold and living life to the fullest. She owns up to her mistakes and learn from them. She is not a fake PR girl next door but an intelligent, compassionate woman. She cares deeply about issues. I know it must suck hens to know that BP and AJ are deeply in love and committed parents to four adorable children but suck it up and move on. There is always Peeboy and Whiny, that PR couple (twitching and smoking not included) of the moment. Peace to all.

  • bdj

    Beautiful pictures of AJ in the interview. She is a strong woman and I am looking forward to seeing Wanted.

    to Orange Clockwork… She was answering questions the interviewer was interested in, she wasn’t rambling on about herself she was just doing what one does in an interview… and i agree with the poster above, Could all the haters please go back to the disgusting site female first and stay there!!!

  • estelle

    PDJ- you are so SPOT ON!!!!!!.

    People, it’s okay not to get she’s laughing at.

    Nothing can confound the wise more than laughter from a dunce.

    She says she had four men and now it wasn’t not a vial of blood. She is trying to rewrite her history.

    _________________________

    You people and the tabloids are the ones that keep rewriting her history.

    Let me correct you once more:

    1- She doesn’t says “she had four men”. She said in 2002 or 3 that she had 4 men and a women. It not Angelina’s fault that the tabloids and the media keep getting old quotes of her and presenting them as new.

    2- It wasn’t a vial. If you have a little time see an interview Angelina gave Larry King in 2002 where she shows him the necklace and see what Larry says about it.

  • loli

    I’ll scream, ”Honey!” and he’ll come running and lift them up. Or they climb on chairs, so it’s not as big of a lift.

    So funny !!!! love it

    The picture everybody saw was kind of awkward, but it just lines up beautifully on his back, just enhances the part of the body I like.

    What picture? I want to sse it!!!

  • estelle

    I hope they have more pictures of her inside EW mag. I got my VF yesterday and all I can say is “WOW”…. ;)

  • Morals

    I have no respect for this homewrecker.

  • the real tita

    Angie always gives a good interview. It’s why even trolls can’t wait to read anything she says (even if it’s only to bash her for them). It’s why journalists get very upset when they are not allowed to question her. They know that she always gives as good as she gets. She’s brutally honest and she’s adorable when she talks about her loved ones.

    She’s the favorite get of all interviewers and they know people will read any article about her. Love the video interviews the best cause she looks so beautiful when animated and her voice is so sexy (and without even trying!).

    Wish she’d do more personal appearances on TV talk shows.
