Angelina Jolie Talks 'Blood & Honey,' Marriage

Angelina Jolie grins as she speaks with journalist Christiane Amanpour in an interview airing during Good Morning America on Monday (December 5).

The 36-year-old actress spoke about directing her new film, In the Land of Blood & Honey, and spoke a bit about her personal life, too. Check it:

On going behind the camera: “[W]riting is the hardest because it feels the most exposed….When you’re an actress, you use somebody else’s words and you can always blame the director and the director can say the editor. But the writer is the one that kind of sits alone in the room and writes what they think is important, funny, historical, topical.”

On her kids asking whether she’ll marry Brad Pitt: “The kids asked me the other day and I asked them if it was just because they wanted to have a ‘big cake. They see movies that have the people getting married in the movies or somebody’s, you know, the happily ever after. Shrek and Fiona are married. We’ve explained to them that our commitment when we decided to start a family was the greatest commitment you could possibly have. Once you have six children, you’re…you’re committed.”

    LMAO at Angie saying she asked the kids if they wanted a wedding because they wanted “a big cake”! Too funny. That’s exactly how kids think, too. A wedding means a big cake, a party and gifts…and if mom and dad get gifts, then maybe they’ll get gifts, too! LOL.

  • LadyB

    How does the children know they are not married? They are not old enough to know unless someone keps hammering it in their heads. At their age, I should think they only know their Brad is their dad and she is the mom.

  • LOL

    She looks like a ventriloquist’s dummy.

  • http://@miss_nora Nora xo

    Once you have six children, and you’re not married , then you are .. you are absolute psychos !!!
    wtf.. seriously .. wt is so creepy about marriage that freaks ppl out… is it the eternal commitment!! is it the division of property after a divorce ??
    i dunno ,, but i kno that if u don’t wanna marry me,, then get the hell outta ma house..

  • lylian

    @Gemma Healy:
    What is there to legitimise? How about you get lobotomised?
    Nevermind, no need for the kids to be legitimised, they have always been legitimate.
    And no need for you to get lobotomised. You have always been a MORON!
    Some times, the jokes write themselves.. Love it.

    On her kids asking whether she’ll marry Brad Pitt:
    Ask the vein.

  • Rose

    The fans are having a great morning, and the day has just began. Happy times.
    The trolls are having a meltdown, and the day has just began. By the end of the day trolls head will explode.
    To the person asking how will kids know if they are married, guess what, 10 y.o. And 8 y.o. Knows about what goes on within their family. Ask your neighbor kids, it’s obvious you have no children.

  • Ex Jen Fan


    etcetera, etcetera

  • why Mom E why?

    Mom E and Dad E can foresee potential new trim in the future when we grow tired of each other and lose our celebrity.

  • huh

    The kids do not know the morality around marriage or even what it means in it’s depth. they are far too young. she is LYING. She is pushing it and brad pitty is avoiding. he would step out and run if he could. b—tch is trapped. LMAO.

    she is pathetic and so is he. she needs to just STOP already and go back to being her authentic self. i’d go back to liking her. besides…she doesn’t need pitt. at all…but she stole him and is now stuck with him. if she actually dumped pitt, i’d like her again even more.

    he has drained the hot and life out of her.

  • good interview

  • MMhmm

    I disagree. The comitment to EACH other is the foundation to every realationship. Couples with children split as often as those without. For example: Angie’s parents split and they had two children. Not to say that what they decide isn’t their own business, but I do not for one minute believe the reasons she’s giving as why they don’t marry. However as I said, they deserve their privacy on this matter, just wish they would both say that while interviewed.

    They need go hug a tree or step away from the computer, go outside and let the spirit of the holidays seep into their black holes. Seriously, imagine all the bad karma on their way to them?

  • Pittstainwiglet
