Angelina Jolie Opens Up to '60 Minutes'

Angelina Jolie Opens Up to '60 Minutes'

Angelina Jolie gets profiled by Bob Simon on CBS’ 60 Minutes, which aired on Sunday (November 27).

Here’s what the 36-year-old actress had to share:

“I always felt not traditionally beautiful. I have big features…as I get older I look like my mom. And I love my mom. You start to kinda put your lineage in line of the different things you are. I see the Native American in me I can see the German from my father’s side and you come to love the combination,” Angie said.

“As long as Brad [Pitt] thinks I’m beautiful…I wake up and I want to be a smarter person. But I feel like that’s certainly what I’m encouraging my girls to do,” Angelina continued.

Angie teared up when talking about her mother.

“My mother was a full-time mother,” Angelina said. “She didn’t have much of her own career, her own life, her own experiences … everything was for her children, I will never be as good a mother as she was. She was just grace incarnate. She was the most generous, loving – she’s better than me.”

Angelina also discussed negative tabloid stories.

“I don’t see those things. I don’t know who they are but I assume they’re not me. They’re not who I am. They’re not what I spend my day caring about. I find them quite shallow and often quite wrong.”

    @No S**t whatever your slow

  • QQQQ

    Jesus! every day, whiny losers preaching to folks what they should post about. SCROLL! Its not that fr*gging hard.

  • Rose

    15.4 million people watched 60 minutes last night, coming in #1 for the night. The power of the Jolie.

  • gracie

    It’s funny how some fakes shut their eyes to the barrage of insults thrown at Angie and Brad on a daily basis, they act like they don’t see but they get pissed and stoop to name calling coz fans throw the same sh!t right back at the scums and their idol. We are not the instigators, we don’t go to Anuston’s thread but as long as her fans come here with their lies, they will get called out and sent crawling back into their rat holes.

    Angie and Brad giving interviews to promote their respective movies doesn’t mean they are open for abuse and insults and Anuston stalking them. Brad and Angie deserve to live their lives as they please without being harassed or bullied.

  • No shit

    @Rose: I am so happy funny didn’t know it was last line. They say it in december. Anyways nice to here that.

  • Angie

    good interview, i was surprised that she said they couldn’t film her children. i like her very much, and i hope she (and brad) slow down in acting. they are just too overexposed. i would much rather see them in 1 great movie per year rather than 4 average ones. god i wish i could afford her wardrobe, lol. it’ll be interesting to see how this movie does, much luck.

  • No shit

    @gracie: Then keep doing what you doing and let it exist in their expesne. Some people just defeintly cant think

  • Elizabeth

    @Rose:

    Wow, I was one of them. I dropped everything went home and whalllllaaaa
    I waited. The funny things was i upset (bought sunday news paper and couldnt find info/what is the local channel) because I grab the wrong news paper I should have gotten a local one. Hmmmmmm I spend $2.00 and so upset throw it away and hurry home.

    It was short but worthed ( I thought it’s an hour-but it’s ok)

  • gracie

    Rose, Wow! that’s fantastic. I’m elated. I’m sure trolls/haters all watched it too — funny. #1 — that’s incredible Jolie, no one can keep her down. She always come up trump.

  • http://computer Susan

    Ticky “what do I’ve to do to get notice, Stephanie called and said hurry over to the movies, this will be a great photo-op, but damn I missed them by a few mins. Then we walk the dog, but all people are talking about is 60 mins, we watch that show to see what is so special about her, and they did not mention me once”.
    Squiggy “hon you have to give your obsession with this woman, all these people you’re paying to discredit her, is only making her more powerfull. Hon, you have my pay ready for this month, I’ve to pay my rent in NYC, you said I would be getting offers of work, but so far no one is hiring me”.

    No matter what people say about her, it won’t change the fact that this woman indeed means something to the world.
    Angelina, you”re extraordinary woman and you’re an inspiration.
    Wish her and her family all the best.

  • ifsogirl

    this interview was aewome! Love Angelina- could listen to her talk for HOURS!

    BTW- the only reasin Anustain showed up at the theater when Brad was there is because she was assured Angelina was not there. The F*ing COWARD would never show her face *ugh* if Angie was there- she KNOWS BETTER!

  • ifsogirl

    should have been *awesome* – fat fingers sorry

  • Besane

    I just find it so comical that, the day Angelina’s monumental 60 Minutes interview came out, where she is DIRECTING a very respectable and sure-to-be nominated for Oscar film, Aniston just couldn’t sit on her a.s and has to “stroll” with her hired boyfriend-du-jour WALKING HER DOG! How comical, and pathetic a comparison is that? Does she not see how sad and laughable this is? Her desperate, completely desperate need to be in ‘par’ with Angelina?

  • Pittstain&da spearsweave

    da only cowards are Pittstain fans. dey cant just let Angie be great. why would Angie care bout aniston and theroux going to da movies? Angieiz not evil like u. She don care for pr gamez dat why she waasnt there……. she know Pittstain haz to play pr gamez to stay in da news cuz people Don care about Pittstain on hiz name alone………just like in da moviez he need big time director . in real life he need big time actress and now first time director to Keep him in da newz. Angie & and her colorfulness keeps herself in da news without Pittstain. Jajaja@ifsogirl:

  • ifsogirl

    @ assstain or whateva u mizzed my point completely- brad was there first – so fugly followed him. he has a lot of clout- but he definately doesn’t want to interact with *fugly* – now or ever- why would he when he has Angie’s love- doesn’t get betta than that

  • oO

    omg Shiloh looks exactly like baby Angie showed in the picture! ><

  • MJ

    I love this interview. I wish it was at least 2 hours long just for her. It was too short, I want more. It was a nice, informative interview with smart answers from Angie, unlike Anuston in every interview, it’s so boring, she tries to be funny just for her excuse so that the viewers will not focus on how she answer the questions being asked cause her answers are always out of questions and sometimes the topic. You can see Anuston is not smart at all cause she always have this bipolar moment in every interview. Angie is one smart woman and a tough one, like Brad said, she’s lethal. I am looking forward on her movie ITLOH.

  • One Go

    Wow,Angie just keeps getting more awesome!

  • I don’t understand why…

    I don’t understand why people don’t like her… She has grown into a beautiful person, inside and out… is intelligent and doing positive things. She is generous, a humanitarian, is not a racist, and a good mother and partner. Other celebrities have a much more tainted past, look at Robert Downey, Jr., or other women who dated men who were attached to someone else, Julia Roberts, Rachel Weisz and yes, even Aniston. They came out unscathed, compared to Angie. Is it just because she split up the “golden couple” (though we know someone’s hair is really not blond.). I don’t get it… I don’t think Angie can ever redeem herself from these judgmental jealous people. I guess she will never please the tabloid readers.

  • I agree

    @MJ: You are spot on with your analysis of Aniston’s interviews! That’s how I always feel when I watch JA in interviews. She tries to divert the attention away from her inability to be articulate with “one-liners”, cute cliches, etc. I mean, she would be fun to have lunch with but to talk about deep issues. No way.

  • Ginger

    I watched the interview too. I’m so glad she turned her life around after she adopted her son, Maddox. I remember in one of her interviews, she didn’t have a sense of purpose, now that she has Maddox, life is more beautiful and has something to live for now…
    Cause I was not liking her during her days with Billy Bob. Luckily, one little man changed her life!! And now I enjoy reading about her and her family with Brad!! I hope they do last a very long time. I hope they grow old together and raise their beautiful kids till they are 100 years old!! hehehe

  • Justanotherfan

    On extra tv tonight Mario said angelina drew in 18 million viewers, either way Jolie was an amazing interview for them. She was so beautiful, smart, articulate, and caring of her family and issues in the world. It was an important interview for her directorial debut as it was covered on all the news.

    # 175 I don’t understand why…

    I don’t understand why people don’t like her…
    ==========

    Honey, it’s called JEALOUSY ENVY, whatever you want to call it. Angie has it all. She is gorgeous, intelligent/smart, A-list actress with incredible talent in her profession, a succesful humanitarian who is globally loved and respected by her peers, policians and head of states. She has achieved so much so young, not to mention has a hot looking A-list Brad as her partner and 6 little cuties. She has it all and some of these losers want some of what she has and can’t and most are fug to look at too including that one with no talent they idolize.

  • gracie

    18m viewers and the number keep rising. Haha. No one can pull Angie down, she is a force to be reckoned with. Amazing woman — lucky Brad.

  • cute!

    she breaks the screen! if i say she is beautiful or smart or sweet or kind lady so I’m getting short. she is all these things, all together, in a only one person.

    i really understand to her detractors, world is unfair, the life is it. SHE HAS ALL. they feel envy on her. meanwhile, we love her just how she is.

    @Besane:

    Did you REALLY JUST TYPE: “I just find it so comical that, the day Angelina’s monumental 60 Minutes interview came out, where she is DIRECTING a very respectable and sure-to-be nominated for Oscar film, Aniston just couldn’t sit on her a.s and has to “stroll” with her hired boyfriend-du-jour WALKING HER DOG! How comical, and pathetic a comparison is that?”
    You really think that Aniston HAS TO STAY HOME, and not be allowed to walk her friggin dog, because Jolie had a 60 Minutes interview coming out on the same day? This is a prime example why lucid people think AJ fans are RETARDS and OBSESSIVE! I can’t believe anyone would think that way ever.

    What the hell ghoes on in your heads?

  • NOT BEAUTIFUL

    HOW CAN ANYBODY THINK SHE IS BEUTIFUL??? SHE’S HORRIBLE!!
