Angelina Jolie's Vanity Fair Interview -- Highlights!

Angelina Jolie's Vanity Fair Interview -- Highlights!

Angelina Jolie is quite candid in the August 2010 issue of Vanity Fair, in NY/LA on June 30, and everywhere on July 6. Here are some notable quotables from the 35-year-old actress:

On having more kids: “No, I’m not pregnant [but] we’re not opposed to it. We want to make sure we can give everybody special time. They’re kids now, and can play together, but they’re going to need a lot more talking in the middle of the night, like I did with my mom for hours. We want to make sure we don’t build a family so big that we don’t have absolutely enough time to raise them each really well.”

On tying the knot with Brad Pitt: “[We're not] against getting married [but] it’s just like we already are. Children are clearly a commitment, a bigger commitment [than marriage]. It’s for life.”

On taking a break from acting: “It’s not the most important thing in my life. Acting helped me as I was growing up. It helped me learn about myself, helped me travel, helped me understand life, express myself, all those wonderful things. So I’m very, very grateful, it’s a fun job. It’s a luxury. Look, I’m at work today in the middle of Venice. But I don’t think I’ll do it much longer.” Jolie says this reassessment is mostly due to her family: “Because I have a happy home….I got back from work last night, and everybody was playing music and dancing and I suddenly found myself dancing around with a bunch of little fun crazy people.”

On her many kids: “Mad’s a real intellectual, which I can take no credit for genetically. He’s great at school, great at history. He feels like he could be a writer or travel the world and learn about places and things. Zahara’s got an extraordinary voice and is just so elegant and well spoken. Shiloh’s hysterically funny, one of the goofiest, most playful people you’ll ever meet. Knox and Viv are classic boy and girl. She’s really female. And he’s really a little dude.”

On how Shiloh dresses: “Like a little dude. Shiloh, we feel, has Montenegro style. It’s how people dress there. She likes tracksuits, she likes (regular) suits. She likes to dress like a boy. She wants to be a boy. So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers.”

On being most like Shiloh growing up: “Goofy and verbal, the early signs of a performer…. I used to get dressed up in costumes and jump around. But at some point, I got closed off, darker. I don’t remember anything happening. I think you just get hit with the realities of certain things in life, think too much, start to realize the world isn’t as you wished it would be, so you deepen. Then, as I had kids and got older—being goofy, lighter—it all came back.”

On Brad’s beard and what he’s been up to in Venice: “I love Brad in every state… He sculpts and designs. He makes furniture, sculpts things related to houses. Traditional male.”

On Brad with the kids: “I keep telling Brad he owes me. He’s had a few months off in one of the most beautiful cities in the world with the children. And he’s such an artist and goes to the stone yards and the art exhibits, and loves being in such a cultural place.”

On a potential Mr. & Mrs. Smith sequel: “People have tried. And it’s strange: do we have kids in the movie? We’ve thought about that, but it becomes personal now that we actually have kids. And if we work on it, we pull from our own life, which is funny to us, but you feel strange sharing too much. We did ask somebody to look into Mr. & Mrs. to see if they could crack a sequel, but there wasn’t anything original. It was just, Well, they’re going to get married, or they’ve got kids, or they get separated. Never great.”

On co-starring again with Brad: “I’d love to. We’ve talked about it. We’d have to figure out who’s going to watch the kids, but it’s really about finding the right thing, because we’ve looked. When you’re a couple, there are certain things people don’t want to see you do. It becomes too indulgent, too personal. I don’t think people want to see people who are really together intimate on-screen. Maybe we have to play bad guys that try to kill each other, so it’s just fun and aggressive, not dealing with some man-woman deal.”

    Thanks Jared..

    I for one can’t wait to read this in full. I love the way she talks about her family. she seems very happy and content

    sad that there is not a great script for she and Brad.. But she is smart to know that audience if fickle and real life couples on the big screen dont’ do well.

    She and Brad seem to be a great match.. Love her and can’t wait to buy this. Beautiful woman inside and out..

    I agree with her on the commitment=kids. To me that’s more commitment than getting married. Think about it, you can get marry and not have kids, then divorce you don’t have to see or speak to that person if you don’t want to. But if you have kids, whether or not you are marry, you will always be tight to that person.

    emm.. now brad cANT have dat soccer team as he wanted after adopting pax… but, i’m happy for this family…. it’s not easy to take care 6 kids at d’ same time, plus they’re about the same age.. it’s realy tough , realy need yo concentration like a lot…!!

    as shiloh dress like a boy, i thot dat it was her will to have short hair… “we had to cut her hair”… said angie.. em well, watever she’ll be wearing, i love shiloh still since da 1st tyme i saw her….

    Jade Says:

    I still stand by my opinion that I think those kids lack serious stability. One moment they’re living and going to school in New York, the next they’re living in France and the next in Italy.
    Though I am sure this gives them great experiences, all kids need to have their own friends and go to school. I am wondering how long it will take for the oldest kids to start throwing tantrums and go off the rails.
    And on another note, celebrity mothers always talk so easy about motherhood when everyone knows they have a team of nannies and maids behind them.

    busted Says:


    she didn’t say they dress little girls that way. She made a reference to the way the people there dress.

    Really the discussion of Shiloh and her clothing choices has been discussed for months. I guess it will again. Maybe because her other statements didn’t fit the picture the media has painted the last few months. She seem very happy with herself and her relationship. But the thing I really love about her is she does not live her life based on the standards or beliefs of other people.. Man what a novel idea. To live your life for yourself and the ones you love.. Not based on the opinions of others that have nothing to do with that life in the first place..

    Go Angie.. you rock… and so does your family..

    anna Says:

    Nice photos. I wish they asked her what she thinks about the open letter her father wrote. I know she wrote an open letter herself a few months ago criticizing the administration’s policies. It would have made the interview more interesting and insightful.

    Hey, this is great. No negative comments yet. I love the way she says she loves Brad in all his state including the beard. I am hopeful that they will find a movie to star together in. They have such chemistry together.
    God bless everybody. Thanks JJ. Have to run and be on time for mass.

    Iffy Miffy Says:

    I know it’s not your first language but read through it before getting all bent out of shape for nothing. She said people dress that way and they do, having been there I can attest to that. Though I highly doubt you are from Montenegro, but just another troll squawking for squawking sake.
    Anyway, I am selfish and I hope she doesn’t quit acting all together but rather makes it a movie every three or so years as I love watching her. Can’t wait to read the whole thing, great woman and such a lovely family!
