Angelina Jolie is Always Mom-Centric

Angelina Jolie is Always Mom-Centric

Angelina Jolie takes her maternal identity seriously and told the LA Times lots of interesting tidbits about her life:

On her life’s focus: “The center of my life is my kids.”

On life just hours before presenting an award to Clint Eastwood: “I woke up at 3 in the morning with four kids with jet lag and two babies. I put myself together for a few hours and go out. And then I go home. This is my job.”

On no signs of settling down in Hollywood: “I don’t dislike it here. I just really do love to travel. I love other cultures. And I love raising my kids in the world. I’m so fortunate that I get to do that.”

On Changeling helping her get pregnant with twins Knox and Vivienne: “I got pregnant right in the middle of [filming] and I think partially because of it. I was so emotional about children that I think something in me kicked into gear.”

    I like to travel too. I can so identify with that. Having family wherever you go is a stablizing force. Lucky.

  • Frenchy

    Throw away your magazines and don’t take too much stock in pictures on blogs because Angelina is a stunner in real life.100 times better in reality. I’ve stopped caring about what pictures look like because they will never do her justice.

  • busy lady

    She looks tired.

  • Jean

    She looks average


    If Angie looks “average” then every other woman on the planet is a total fug face gargoyle. Fugs like yourself can only dream of being so “average”.

  • yep

    She is the most IRRITATING person on the face of this earth. I’m sick of listening or reading about how she conceived all of her illegitimate children.

  • Passing Through

    BTW – can we keep the X crap on the other thread, please? Thanks…

  • lol

    watch and Lamey now post this story.

    Angie is doing her thing and loving every moment of it. I like how she speaks to certain interviewers.

    I love to travel too, its always been a passion of mine, I get restless after months of just working and going to school!

    I hope she enjoys the true happiness in her life, it looks like she has found her place, her calling. I like that!

    Doesnt matter how she got here, what matter is that the world knows ANGELINA JOLIE HAS ARRIVED!

  • jamies

    yes no Pitt mentions!!!

  • allikat

    Beautiful both inside and out.
    Even in somewhat harsh lighting, Angie is gorgeous.

  • jamies



  • to mouse

    I just asked to remove your thread. It was too stupid to keep on here.

  • Val

    Oh trust me, that is not the entire interview…the part with Brad Pitt will soon come.

    I like the way they publish these interviews in bits and pieces. LOL!

    Damn I am in the wrong business. My CPA license does not get me close to this kind of excitement!!!

  • anon

    what a difference Brad & Angelina are compared to…well I’m not gonna go there.

  • hello


  • Saraicita

    I love this part:

    On her life’s focus: “The center of my life is my kids.”

    so true!!! :)

  • barbie

    Angelina just seems so happy and at peace with herself, her family and her life. No excuses just the way it is.
    I love that she says her children are the center of her life.
    Now that IS COOL.

    I always find it interesting how many people “love” this woman, her humanity, and the fact that she is a mother…..yet, she and brad really did something so evil, (cheaters….homewrecker) …I’m not even a big fan of Jen, but still, remember what happened people. Yes, we move on, but if this was “any other woman” who scooped up some womans husband, she’s be known forever as being a “homewrecker, slutt, bittch…”
    It’s confusing to me, and that’s why I really dislike the two of them.

  • an oldie

    From the`last thread. I like this game, AG.

    # 1277 African Girl @ 11/12/2008 at 11:59 am I can’t stop laughing at JA’s Meyer qoute.

    Trust me, you’ll never see that happen again from that man.”

    Rotflmao! First off, not HIM, not JOHN but THAT MAN. . . This is the man she’s supposedly in a relationship with. Aww, how sweet! No wonder the Fanistons have a hard time believing BP and AJ are in love, after all they don’t refer to each other so dismissively.

    Secondly, I am sure JM is on his hands and knees thanking the heavens for giving his a woman like her. I mean this just what every guy wants the world to know, that his girl has got a “handle on him”! Lmao!

    The only way for her to speak so self assuredly like this, is because there’s something in it for him. She speaks with a the same confidence a mob boss does when he tells the prosecutor he will be out of jail before lunch because the star witness won’t testify. See, he knows the star witness won’t testify because he’s got the star witness’s son tied up in his basement.

    Instead of worrying about “Uncool AJ” I say we try to guess who or what JA has on Mayer!!!!!

    Fun Game, no?

    My guess – A video tape of him caressing a life size cardboard cut out of a Naked Perez Hilton, singing “Your body is a wonderland” in the nu’de.

    Okay, Eww! I don’t think I wanna play anymore! I’m gonna go throw up now.

    Sorry for the Mob references, watched a Documentary on the Chicago Mob last night, guess I still have it on mind.


    To keep him in check, Maniston promised him a part in her next movie, puma. He loves being a movie star, and probably has dreams of Oscars too. He’ll play the cub to her cougar.

  • just asking

    She certainly got no love from internet blogs yesterday.


    strange that she needs to talk about how the day went for her before handing over the award to clint eastwood..

    as if she knew that everyone was talking bad about her looks that day… how tired she looked and old….

    OMG she really is a hypocrit… she knows everything and really
    is keeping up with what everyone thinks about her….


  • WTF?

    shlz @ 11/12/2008 at 1:00 pm

    My dear, that is the problem with people like you. She did not break up that marriage. That marriage was broke and Brad wanted out to have a family of his own. He connected with a real woman a woman who was a single mother. that’s the life he wanted.

    How dare you bring up ancient history?

  • angel

    39,dj,stay at perez,you jen hags are lunatics

  • yep

    The level of worship of this person is very frightening. Most of you should be instituionalized. You know who you are. You know, the person you have to get up every morning, and look in the mirror, and realize that your ugly and nonexistent so you have to live through Angelina who has mild looks and lots of fame. Think about it the next time you look in the mirror at your ugly self.

  • angel

    yep,new name,you guys are losing your minds,i really willnot waste my time on losers,angie said it best,TEAM UNCOOL FOREVER

  • lol

    yep, I agree brad pitt fans should stop worshiping that guy. he is lame. I also agree with shlz what brad did was evil.

  • hahahaha

    Angelina Jolie-Jennifer Aniston Chicago Run-In?
    November 11th, 2008

    We may be going out on a limb here, but it looks like there’s a chance that Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston may be bound for a run-in in the Windy City.

    Aniston is scheduled to be here today to film an episode of Oprah and sources tell us that Jolie may be here too to promote Kung Fu Panda.

    “Jack Black is supposed to be here to promote the movie and possibly Angelina”, a source tells The Boots Girls.

    This could be a problem, because not only do Jolie and Aniston both always stay at the Peninsula Hotel, they both usually use the same suite. Yikes!

    This would be particularly bad timing since it just came out today that Aniston said it was “uncool” that Jolie pretty much admitted that she was doing her hubby, Brad Pitt, while they were still married.

    Another interesting twist in the drama, we can confirm that at least one person from Aniston’s camp canceled their reservation at the Peninsula.

    There’s definitely something fishy going on. The Boots Girls will get to the bottom of it, so stay tuned

  • Helen

    The trolls at Perez are going insane… if Angie gives a flying f*** what Maniston thinks of her. Angie can say whatever she wants, she has always been honest about everything.

  • angel

    yep,angie owns your you


    i read some-where that german media said the IB shoot has finished in berlin. perhaps the jolie-pitts are going to france? btw is anyone a bit disappointed by the envelope interview. i thought is was too short and not much new info was in it, and the pics show angelina to be a bit tired, which is fair enough with all the travelling she did berfore the 28th ocober.


    May the Almighty bless Brangelina! I love this family.

    Angelina and Brad, don’t let anybody destroy the wonderful things you have built up together. Stay united and fight for your love and your children.
