Angelina Jolie: Brad Makes Me A Better Woman

Angelina Jolie: Brad Makes Me A Better Woman

Angelina Jolie reveals in the new issue of W Magazine that she had only planned on adopting children but after falling in love with Brad Pitt, he changed her mind.

Here are some quotes from the mag via People:

On Brad changing her mind about giving birth to her own children: “I think one of the life changing things that he did, one of many, is that I was absolutely never going to get pregnant. I never felt that it was the right thing to do… I suppose I just looked at him and loved him and just felt open to (getting pregnant). I suddenly wanted to. It’s one of those things you can’t explain.”

On Brad seeing adopted children Maddox and Zahara: “I knew that he would never see them as different, and that gave me a certain peace.”

On having three children with Brad: “I wouldn’t trade that experience for the world. It taught me a lot about life, just the process of it, and now we have three other beautiful children that wouldn’t otherwise be here.”

On baring her body for the intimate W pics taken by Brad just weeks after the twins’ birth: “I’m with a man who’s evolved enough to look at my body and see it as more beautiful, because of the journey it has taken and what it has created. He genuinely sees it that way. So I genuinely feel even sexier.”

On Brad being perfect for her: “[I have] a lot of respect [for Brad. He helps me] to be better and fight hard for the things that I love. I do think that I’m in a good partnership now. I think it just needed to be the right man.”

  • alicet

    Thank you for posting this excerpt. Angelina has always been so honest and open about herself- I am glad that she has started opening up more about her love for Brad. I can’t wait to get a copy of this issue.

  • maffer

    Wow! She looks so pretty here, guess it’s the beauty of motherhood :]
    I’m so happy for her & her family

  • Another mother

    Beautiful picture! Nothing is more pure then a mother with her child, she looks radiant!

    She had to kiss a lot of frogs to get the prince. Congrats to the Jolie-Pitt family

  • Shar

    Brad is a great guy. a good husband, supportive partner and a responsible, loving father. Too bad, his X fail to appreciate it.

  • califan

    I’m so happy for Angelina and Brad.

  • Shar

    On her show last night, Chelsey Handler was soooo happy Angie got with Brad, everytime she mentions her being with Billy Bob, she acts like she wants to puke, lol!!!

  • http://justjared what the hell

    She is one lucky bitch. This is for the whole world out there to know that doing drugs, sex and alcohol with the first that comes in hand , be the worst of what people think of you,will only give you the best. So for all the loser saints there’s poverty, disrespect and a lot of taxes to pay, not to mention that the only streets they will ever see in their entire life will be the little vilage they have grown up to. You go bitch you don’t derseve what you have but you have created it. So enjoye now you have it all.

    Yes and it is also a shame that so many of the trolls just don’t get it. True love transcends physical beauty.

    I see the losers haven’t show up here…YET!

    Angie looks great! Timeless.

  • Debra77

    I think what she says about Brad is what many men and women find. sometimes you go through life with a belief that you hold dear.. Then you meet someone who makes you see that belief in a different way. There are women and men for example who say.. “I’ll never get married… Then that one person comes along that changes that. (Warren B). Or you say I will never do this for a relationship, or do that for a relationship…Then he/or she comes in your life and everything changes. That is life. It is a journey of growth and change. And the best part is we are allowed to change our minds and take a different course. They may or may not be soul mates…

    But this is their journey together. They get to live it the way they choose and with whom.

    He really seem to truly love her. This is not t say he did or does not love Jennifer. It just means it is a different road. Not Good or Bad..Just Different.

  • cataz

    OMG best interview EVER!! i love this couple!! she sounds soo down to earth and a little vulnerable, unlike the bad-girl image she has had all these years. i like this side of her!

  • hey

    enjoy bitch cause you have it all

  • moi

    Umm, don’t most of us look at Brad Pitt and suddenly want to have his babies? That’s no surprise, hehe.

    And too bad “the right man” was married to someone else. Nothing a quick Hollywood divorce can’t solve!

    WOW Angie is so confident, I really liked this part

    There is so much love in that family, I think these two are made for each other. It doesn’t matter what the haters and trolls say….we should celebrate the love and joy of the Jolie Pitts.

    Debra77,

    “He really seem to truly love her. Not to say he did or does not love jeniffer”.

    WHAT?

  • tessla

    Eww…I bet Jennifer Anniston could kick herself…Angie found a wonderful man and father and she better not let go…I’m rooting for her, she seems that she loves Brad with all her heart, you can see it in her eyes. She’s not stupid she’s not going to let this one get away, for the sake of keeping her body the #1 priority in her life like Anniston. Just think, Jen, you could have had all this but instead you have your buff, bronzed body and John Mayer’s sleaziness to keep you company. I hope that Angie and Brad stay together forever for the sake of the love that bonds them and their beautiful children.

  • ebmo

    The rags definately treat pregnancy like a “disease” to be quickly recovered from.

    From the minute a woman has a baby, they lay on the pressure for her to regain her pre-pregnancy form.

    Angelina & Brad know the importance of family.

  • Jada

    Oh…that’s so cute. They are perfect for each other. I’m glad they found true love.

  • Alexanderina

    awwwwwwwwwwwwww love these quotes. I can’t wait to read the whole article and see the rest of the pictures. This couple are so in love with each other and were meant to be. They are soulmates

    Thanks Jared. You Rock!!

  • Alexanderina

    Frenchy, I agree Angie is very content with her life. When you find the right partner, the person who loves you above all and will do anything for you, then you really do find contentment. She found a great man in Brad. They love and support each other in everything. They are truly meant for each other

  • Eyes

    “swoon”, make me believe in true love again.
    Ariba Brangelina!!

  • ACE TOMATO

    What’s not to love here? Motherhood is gorgeous, and she looks so happy to be a mother. And she is looking at the father of her children as he takes the pictures. Her expression says it all.

    I know weird people will show up and say degrading things about Jolie, but I think if you can look at this picture and the only response you have is sarcasm or some snide comment, you have passed jaded into something barren.

  • Alexanderina

    I really love this part:

    On Brad seeing adopted children Maddox and Zahara: “I knew that he would never see them as different, and that gave me a certain peace.”

  • Alexanderina

    awwwwwwwww so sweet:

    On Brad being perfect for her: “[I have] a lot of respect [for Brad. He helps me] to be better and fight hard for the things that I love. I do think that I’m in a good partnership now. I think it just needed to be the right man.”

  • Alexanderina

    awwwwwwwww love this part

    On Brad being perfect for her: “[I have] a lot of respect [for Brad. He helps me] to be better and fight hard for the things that I love. I do think that I’m in a good partnership now. I think it just needed to be the right man.”

  • cj

    i’m glad we’re finally reading parts of the interview! go jared, you’re the best.

  • Jill

    I can understand Angelina wanting to be sure Brad would give Maddox and Z the same love and acceptance he would give a biological child. Some guys don’t. But as far as Brad is concerned, all those kids are his, period.

  • Jolie/Pitt=)

    Awwww makes me wanna believe in true love….I’m so happy for both brad and angelina they are just great people and they do great things! if only the rest of us could be so lucky…and talk about natural beauty!!!!

  • Karena

    That’s lovely. Go Angie! :)

  • Dude

    Good for her but this is exactly what the critics were talking about when they said she’s overexposed. She didn’t need to do a big interview to promote the film. The way she promoted WANTED was the best. Barely any press. Just because her fans want to hear all of the details of her life doesn’t mean she has to throw her acting away to do it. PRIVACY and a some tape over her mouth would do her a world of good when It comes to her acting. Plus, This is all nothing she hasn’t told her fans before. I feel like she’s a lot like the stepford wife Katie Holmes except Katie doesn’t tell as many details about her life.

    These Brangelina fans posting here are not fans of Angelina the Actress.. they are fans of Angelina the celebrity/brad’s baby machine and she’s feeding the monster.

  • josie nova

    I can’t wait to see the rest of the pics….. I wonder if they are all going to be black and white or some colour.

    So sweet how Angie describes the twins…how they were made for eachother etc. Yet another “awwww” moment.

    There are not enough words to describe this beautiful family and even most superlatives don’t even really do justice to the family.

    It’s not just their physical beauty that fascinates us all… but that intangible beauty that comes their goodness, their hearts, their incredible generosity, their love, commitment and utter devotion to eachother as family, their values, their “normalness” despite their huge celebrity, their interactions as parents and children and siblings….the epitome of all that is good rolled into one big happy family that is the Jolie-Pitts.

    I think that’s why we are all in love with this family.

  • gina

    These two are really such an amazing couple.
