Angelina Jolie Covers 'Marie Claire' January 2012

Angelina Jolie Covers 'Marie Claire' January 2012

Angelina Jolie shows off her gorgeous blue eyes on the cover of Marie Claire‘s January 2012 issue.

The 36-year-old actress talked with the mag about her directorial debut with In the Land of Blood and Honey, her possible marriage to partner Brad Pitt, and potentially having more kids one day.

Here’s a bit of what Angie had to share:

On her social life: “Well, I have a few girlfriends, I just … I stay at home a lot, I’m just not very social. I don’t do a lot with them, and I’m very homebound.”

On who she talks to: “I’ll talk to my family, I talk to Brad. But I don’t know, I don’t have a lot of friends I talk to. He is really the only person I talk to… He has expanded my life in ways I never imagined. We built a family. He is not just the love of my life, he is my family. I hold that very dear. I suppose what I’ve learned from Brad is to be able to have the kind of family whose happiness and well-being comes before your own. I’m very, very grateful to have such a loving family, and I wouldn’t have that without him.”

On possibly more children: “Nothing planned at the moment, but we just don’t know. I could end up pregnant.”

On her six kids giving her private time with Brad: “If they see Mommy and Daddy in need of some private time ’cause they’re going to kiss and whatever, the kids get all giggly and happy—because it gives them some security.”

On going behind the camera: “That doesn’t mean I’m stopping [acting] tomorrow. But I woke up one day realizing, God, I’m an actor. I don’t think I intended to be an actor. I think my mother wanted it for me. I loved telling stories, and I enjoyed the profession, but it is too late to be something else?”

    Another baby? “Nothing planned at the moment, but we just don’t know. I could end up pregnant,” Angelina says.

  • Oaktown

    Come on Jared! You know she said she doesn’t have lot of girlfriends “in the movies”. Why leave that out? Stop being a tabloid BS!

  • Another Fan

    Jared, actually Angie had a lot more important things to talk about than the “bits” that you mentioned. So much more important that I don’t even remember your “bit” about Brad being the only person she talks to even being in the Marie Claire interview. Do you have an agenda? Also, your link should be to the article outright rather than to Marie Claire in general.

    Laranjen,
    how do you do it? you are always first to post on Brad and Angie thread?
    Don’t you ever sleep?

  • Another Fan

    Jared, you are responsible for what your staff writes on your site, so please don’t allow them to stoop to tabloid BS behavior by picking comments to be inflammatory, writing quotes that aren’t there, and just being unprofessional in general. Try to raise the standards of blogging.

  • believe

    @Another Fan:
    ITA Jared hates Angie. I don`t know what`re JP fans doing here!!!

  • hag

    let the haters post under different names. liars eventually can’t keep their lies straight and expose themselves sooner or later. letting visitors to this and other sites where they congregate realize the crazy.
    the pathological, irrational HATRED shown for ANGELINA is frightening. this human being has NEVER done anything PERSONAL TO THEM. fans and objective lurkers know the haters are paid or psychopath fans of a certain b list someone who is DIVORCED from a Hollywood A List actor who DUMPED the b lister. Seems the said b lister’s fans CAN’T LET GO.

    She looks stunning here! Question though, is this an old interview? I remember reading these quotes several weeks ago.

  • Jen MANASTEALIN

    @ 29 trashy HO
    .
    Apparently your parents failed in that department with you considering your lack of basic education. Try to get some instead of lecturing others you uneducated biiatch raised in a trash hole !

  • PhotoShop overtime

    She’s a wreck these days.

  • speaktruth

    While I do really admire how dedication and devotion to her family, as some people take that for granted, I find it odd that she doesn’t really hang out with anyone else. I understand that’s what happens when you’re married, or in their case “married.” However, I think it’s also normal for married people to hang out with their friends such as going on double dates and whatnot, you know?

  • Jane Patton

    Angie has no problem saying ‘Brad is the love of her life’.

    I remember years ago, when Brad and Jen were still together, a reporter asked Jen if Brad was the love of her life, and Jen said, ” I have not met everybody I will met in my life so I don’t know if he is.” The reporter had this surprised expression on her face.

    Jolie quiets Bosnian critics with war film screening

    09 Dec 2011 12:31

    Source: reuters // Reuters

    SARAJEVO, Dec 9 (Reuters) – Victims of Bosnia’s 1992-95 war had most of their anxieties over a film by Hollywood star Angelina Jolie put to rest at a private screening this week.

    Objections to filming Jolie’s tale of love between a Serb man and a Muslim woman in Bosnia last year forced the Hollywood star to shoot most of the film in nearby Hungary. Only some of the exterior scenes were shot in Bosnia.

    But the Thursday night screening of the film in Sarajevo to representatives of victims’ associations elicited positive reactions from some of Jolie’s toughest local critics.

    “She has made a fantastic film for Bosnia and Herzegovina, I can really say that from the angle of a victim,” Murat Tahirovic, the president of Bosnia’s association of (wartime) detainees, told the Federal Television in Sarajevo.

    Tahirovic was among a dozen representatives of wartime victims invited to the closed screening of Jolie’s directorial debut “In The Land of Blood and Honey”.

    “Everybody should see this film,” Tahirovic said.

    In October 2010, a Bosnian minister cancelled Jolie’s filming permits citing incomplete paperwork, after female victims of the Bosnian war objected to details of the plot, alleging it was about love between a rapist and his victim.

    The film tells a tale of love between a Serb man and a Muslim woman before the Bosnian war, who later meet in different circumstances – he is an army officer and she is his detainee.

    Victims of sexual violence in Bosnia wrote to the United Nations refugee agency, saying Jolie did not deserve her role as a UNHCR Good Will Ambassador, and did not know enough about the Bosnian conflict.

    Jolie first came to Bosnia last year as an UNHCR ambassador.

    She filmed most of the feature in Budapest but asked war victims voicing their objections to the movie to reserve judgement until they had seen the finished product.

    One of the loudest opponents to Jolie filming in Bosnia said she was now satisfied by the film’s portrayal of the war.

    “Two hours of film is not enough time to show all (the horrors of the war), but I think Angelina managed to do it,” said Sadzida Hadzic of the Women-Victims of War association.
    The closed screening was organised by the Center for post-conflict research, and was not open to media. (Reporting By Daria Sito-Sucic, editing by Paul Casciato)

    @Mr and Mrs Smith: I guess Bakira did not get an invitation to the screening. This was a good way to neutralize her.
