Angelina Jolie: 'I Am Very Lucky with Brad'

Angelina Jolie: 'I Am Very Lucky with Brad'

Angelina Jolie gushes about partner Brad Pitt in a recent interview with U.K.’s The Telegraph.

Here’s what the 35-year-old Kung Fu Panda 2 star had to share:

On raising their six kids: “We are obviously extremely committed to the children and as parents together … When Brad and I decided to have a large family we decided we’d only do it if we could be really hands-on and take the kids with us, seeing them every day. I am always there on weekend, I only ever work a five-day week, and I am often there for breakfast or dinner. When I’m working they come up at lunch.”

On Brad as a partner: “I am very lucky with Brad. He is a real gentleman, but he is also a real man’s man. He’s got the wonderful balance of being an extraordinary, great, loving father, a very, very intelligent man and physically he’s a real man in all things that it means.”

On her adventurous side: “I have a MV Agusta [motorcycle]. But Brad is the real rider. He’s really good. But that said, I love being a woman. I love that I can have children. I love feeling soft. I love being with Brad. I love all the sensitivity and natural emotion.”

On playing Cleopatra in the David Fincher-directed remake: “My performance will never be as lovely as Elizabeth [Taylor]‘s. We are trying to get into a different truth about [Cleopatra] as a pharaoh in history and not as a sex symbol, because she really wasn’t.”

    The perfect couple! They need to show modern hollywood that love isn’t just about looks but actually about true love and being genuine. Not like many out there, getting through every living actress in the industry! Perfect and I Love them. God Bless.

  • sofia

    Yaay, my favorite couple… I love them together, they are the BEST COUPLE EVER!

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    I am 1st.

  • DarkEmpress

    Angelina is right about Cleopatra being more intelligent than beautiful, but she herself is so beautiful that I’m not sure audiences will realise that. I think its great how her and Brad are able to have a great family and a movie star life. they really seem perfect together.

  • Jo

    Just remember Angie Brad’s a cheater and if it can happen to one woman, it can happen to you.

  • kelly

    Hooray! love is in the air!

  • http://hi.com Mee

    Brad’s marriage was in trouble long before Angelina came along. And Angelina did NOT get physical with brad until the divorce… they had a bond during filming. i do not believe for one second he cheated while still with jennifer

  • ace11

    She is a total Loon ball

    She stole Brad from Aniston

    one day when he is Old enough…he will regret iy

  • Pays to have PR team

    Jo Brad was not a cheater and if Aniston would ever be truthful she would tell the world that their marriage had been in trouble for a long time. Brad istrying to be a gentleman but he will not hold back his feelings for Angie. I am sure he wants to put his love for Angie in the haters faces and force his X to tell the truth. If she knows how. God Bless Mr & Mrs Pitt.

  • gmab

    my like for her is dwindling. the more she becomes Brad’s spokesperson the less I like her. This sounds like more promotion for Brad and his movie rather than Angie and hers. i don’t think she can afford to lose more fans.

  • gmab

    @ace11: when he’s old enough? he’s like 60.

  • cee

    LOL The hater sites like Huffnpuuf post and HL and the popgoes the weasel sites are trying a new tack by attacking Angie’s innocent comments about her Cleopatra movie. Angis has prased Elizabeth’s work but says she is doing a very different version. Of course, the haters headline, Angie disses Liz and the like. So predictable!

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    Angie is so in love with her man & vice versa.

  • gmab

    I bet Brad’s Pr team released these old re-quotes to promote his father hood movie. How ridiculous.

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    Haters are losing their SH!T again. Love it. Love it.

  • gmab

    No wonder Brad got rid of his Publicist. Angie is his new publicist.

  • Lara

    You tell ‘em Angie! Both she and Brad love each other deeply, so good on them both for being so happy to talk about it.

  • sullivan

    Just saw nude pictures of Blake Lively. I can’t believe she’s become one of those celebrities.

    They’re on her imdb message boards page. I’m really hoping it’s not her.

  • Yo-landi

    So she’s indeed playing Cleopatra? Thought she had no idea? They’re always repeating the same ish about the kids, iight we get it you have your football team! She’s gorgeous. I love that part “a very, very intelligent man and physically he’s a real man in all things that it means.” IT SAYS IT ALL! ……Coy, coy, coy :D

    Did not mean to post that twice and definitely didn’t mean to post it here. Oops.

    I love Brad and Angelina!! They’re both very lucky to have each other.

  • luvangie4ever

    And you’re an amazing woman yourself, Angie. Brad is extremely lucky to have met her, together they make a great couple. A lovely example of what a shared vision and true love can accomplish. Kung Fu Panda 2 was funny and entertaining. It was so touching in a few parts as well.

  • Lynn

    She wiil make a wonderful cleopatra.

    Sore losers always claims that the WINNER cheated. Nobody cheated. Ole girl fumbled the ball. LOl.

  • gracie

    I’m not sure this interview is new, it looks like clips from different interviews Angie has given and Telegragh copied them. There is no date or when and where the interview took place.
    As usual, trolls rush to post before the fans and yet they have the nerve to whine. They’re secret admirers but too embarrassed to admit it. Brad and Angie own you.

  • Courtney

    Awww she dotes on Brad! She loves her man!! They are both so lucky to have found each other. True Love baby!!!

  • CJLOVE

    You would’ve never seen TICKY say anything like this about Brad!!! She can’t even thank her husband when she won an award. This is why Angie is his soulmate!!

  • Moneyball

    Ace11, stop smoking crack. What is there to miss about barren aging Anuston? 6yrs since Brad dumped her, no man wants the biitch for keeps unless it is for butt fingering or one night fix. Lol.

  • Gray Matter

    I LOVE HER, but she should stop adopting and shitting out babies. Turn political and individualistic. Step out of the mommy trap once in a while. Problem in society is that we have to many mothers and actresses in society, but not enough political leaders.

  • African Girl

    God! Look how she praises him, you can tell she respects him…as a man, a father, an actor and her partner. And people wonder why he ADORES her.
    .
    Their love has changed both of them for the better…AJ, who was more of a tomboy in her younger days is now more accepting of her softer side because she has a partner who revels in the power of her femininity and BP who used to be reticent with his opinion on important issues has become more vocal….because he’s got a partner who supports him, encourages him…makes him feel 100ft tall!
    .
    How can they not love each other?!!!!
    .
    Good for them!

    Yay! Three Brad movies coming out this year!!!

  • African Girl

    The idiots who scream “cheater” every time AJ say something great about BP, do it so they don’t have to face the truth about JA’s crappiness as a wife.
    .
    AJ’s loving and respectful acknowledgement of BP not only paints the real picture of the man, it also shows what an insecure, condescending narcissist JA was as a wife and partner…something her brain dead fans refuse to accept.

  • groundcontrol

    African Girl, you are soooo right. Now THIS is how you talk about someone you love.
    .
    Angie is so loving. I know she seems to be so lucky she found Brad but he also struck gold when he found her. I always wonder what he was thinking when he was so persistent in getting her to sign on for MAMS. She was quite reluctant at first and I read he pursued her by phone and talked her into it. Maybe he was just thinking about the bottom line or maybe he wasn’t. Hmmm.
    .
    OT: Loving that pic of Niecy Nash up there. She is so funny.

    And we never seen how Brad treat MANiston like the way he treated Angie on the RC. The man always very attentive to Angie. The man walked across the RC to get his woman. How’s sweet was that? Also, he loves Angie @ss if you know what I mean. Has anyone seen Brad done that to MANiston?

    a woman cannot take a man away from his wife unless the man wants to leave. simply put, idiot, Angie could not have taken Brad away for Jennifer if he did not want to go.

    I certainly agree with you that his relationship with Angie is leap yars ahead of his with his ex-wife and I believe Brad discovered real love for the first time with Angie. But by all accounts he was very good to his ex-wife. He sure tried to be romantic at times for her. It just didn’t work and at some point your heart must just leave the fight to make yourself love someone when it just isn’t there.

  • groundcontrol

    AG, it’s on the way. I threw in some champagne. No reason not to celebrate what I think lies ahead.

    OT: Hey, Jared. Put Niecy’s pic back. I don’t want to see the dead Jeff Conaway.

    Brad and Angie make a fabulous couple. They are perfectly suited. May their love continue to blossom.

    Brad was a gentleman with his ex but I don’t feel the attentiveness he has for Angie as he did for ex. I have seen him on RC with ex but don’t remember seeing him treating ex like he did with Angie.
