Angelina Jolie Wants to Focus on Family
Angelina Jolie shares her thoughts on the Oscars race, her career, and life priorities at Good Morning America on Tuesday (February 3).
On her Oscars nomination: I feel very very lucky that I have won in the past. Listen, it’s lovely to be nominated. But I’m hoping Benjamin Button does really good on the night…. I’m rooting for Brad [Pitt].
On watching her own films: Um, sometimes. I like the process of doing them more than watching them. No, I just, I don’t really like to watch movies (laughing) I love to watch Brad‘s movies.
On what her kids think of her career: I think they only think I animate Kung Fu Panda… and that’s the extent of my career.
On what’s first in her life: I’d say kids first, kids, woman to Brad and then my work internationally and being a kind of… trying to educate myself and trying to learn about the world and… trying to do some good things while I’m alive.
On stepping away from acting: I’ve been lucky enough to have a great career and a lot of success. But I wake up every day just the happiest mommy… I don’t want to wake up one day and say I had my career that expanded so much longer and I did that many more films and miss out on all those other things in life.
