Angelina Jolie Covers 'Vogue,' Full Family Joins the Photo Shoot!

Angelina Jolie Covers 'Vogue,' Full Family Joins the Photo Shoot!

Angelina Jolie takes a walk on the beach looking absolutely stunning for the cover of Vogue‘s November 2015 issue.

The 40-year-old By the Sea actress and director was joined by her full family – husband Brad Pitt and kids Maddox, 14, Pax, 11, Zahara, 10, Shiloh, 9, and seven-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne – for the photo shoot. Here is what she had to share with the mag:

On her marriage: “Brad and I have our issues, but if the characters were even remotely close to our problems we couldn’t have made the film… As artists we wanted something that took us out of our comfort zones. Just being raw actors. It’s not the safest idea. But life is short.”

On the “brutal” double mastectomy surgeries: “It’s hard. They are not easy surgeries. The ovaries are an easy surgery, but the hormone changes”—she laughs, nods her head—“interesting. We did joke that I had my Monday edit. Tuesday surgery. Wednesday go into menopause. Thursday come back to edit, a little funky with my steps.”

On going through menopause: “I feel grounded as a woman. I know others do too. Both of the women in my family, my mother and my grandmother started dying in their 40s. I’m 40. I can’t wait to hit 50 and know I made it.”

FYI: Angelina is wearing Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane on the cover.

    After seeing the new Vogue pics and reading the whole feature, I don’t know BUT I have a different, very special feeling. AJP is really in a good place/ state now. Her outlook in life is giving me goosebumps. She is inspiring us to do better NOT in a preachy way BUT by leading an example, she is showing us how she is living the high road including how she handled herself during the Sony hacking issue. Just everything about the article is just awesome. She balances her life very well. She is truly one of a kind and a special lady. I really love this woman. I am glad she is my favorite NOT just as a filmmaker, actress, humanitarian BUT as a person. May her tribe increase. If many people are like her, this world would be a wonderful, better place to live.

    She still thinks in Cleo. Nice to see Eric defending her. Awesome pictures.

  • Lily

    So my guess was right, the movie is loosely based on her mother’s life. And their house in London? i think the writer didn’t know much, the house in London is just the house temporary for them there for Brad’s movie filming. I don’t think they bought a house in London.

    Hmmm, I could see that someone is already calling an emergency meeting for her next step to try to top this.

  • Leyzzle S

    love her

  • neer

    Love this, “….for finally giving the world a cover worth celebrating.”

    That’s should be the case….. on why a person is put on a cover… because there is something worth featuring about that person.. NOT just an avenue for posing one’s ridiculous shots which what usually happens with other celebrities.

  • WandaBread

    I loved that part. I love that she says she is actually enjoying acting now. maybe we’ll see her on the big screen sooner than later after BTS of course. :-) she has a few more years she says AS AN ACTRESS YAY

    Angelina Jolie Pitt’s Best Versace Red Carpet Looks
    ——————————————————————————————
    Rare is the star who consistently reigns on the red carpet. Ever since Angelina Jolie Pitt stepped out in 1998 at the Golden Globes and snagged an award for her role in Gia, the actress has dazzled with equal parts bold style and Old Hollywood glamour. And while she keeps things sleek, streamlined, and always refined in tailored suiting from Michael Kors and Saint Laurent for day, it is by evening where we see Jolie Pitt’s true style. The designer responsible for ushering in the new look? The modern master of sophisticated sexy, Donatella Versace, who was also behind the custom creation the actress wore for her wedding to Brad Pitt.

    While Jolie Pitt’s innate sensuality comes across on-screen, when she takes to the red carpet, it’s often in powerful looks that enhance her already stunning figure. During her press tour of Maleficent, she looked devilishly on point in fitted frocks. When she opts for diaphanous dresses, she radiates the allure of screen sirens such as Rita Hayworth and Katharine Hepburn. And at the 2012 Academy Awards, she managed to even upstage herself via a dramatic right-leg reveal. The custom Atelier Versace dress she wore that night was crafted in velvet, and its high slit stole the show, elevating Jolie Pitt from movie star to icon. With the humanitarian and actress set to embark on a press tour for her latest film, By the Sea, which she wrote, directed, and starred in opposite her real-life husband, we know Jolie Pitt will be maintaining that icon status. In Versace, of course.

    5 Things You Didn’t Know About Angelina Jolie Pitt
    ———————————————————————————————–
    Next month marks the on-screen return of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Pitt in By the Sea. Slightly darker than Mr. & Mrs. Smith, the film, written and directed by Jolie Pitt, tells the story of an at-sea (get it?) ’70s couple who go on a European sojourn in an effort to mend their marriage. To toast Jolie Pitt’s November cover and her newest directorial turn, here are five things you likely never knew about the actress.

    1. At the urging of her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, Jolie Pitt
    attempted modeling when she was 14 years old but found the experience extremely upsetting. In 1998, when she was promoting HBO’s Gia, the story of troubled model Gia Carangi, she told The New York Times that her negative experience with the industry connected her to the character. “I tried modeling when I was 14 and failed miserably,’” she said. “Like Gia, I was a bit of a dirty punk, but it was interesting to clean up and start feeling like a girl. I was told I had all these problems I needed to fix. I was told to lose weight, and I was thin already. They actually put me in a room in a bathing suit and measured every part of me. I felt terrible.”

    2. Her godmother is Jacqueline Bisset, but the 71-year-old English actress has said that she’s not particularly close with Jolie Pitt. “Unfortunately, I haven’t developed a close relationship with Angelina. I see her rarely but I’m very admiring of her,” Bisset recently told a TV show. “What I find difficult is she’s become so famous. So many people are pulling on her time. I’m a little bit shy and I don’t want to be someone who tries to take advantage of her. Occasionally people say to me, ‘Oh, you know Angelina Jolie,’ and I say, ‘No, she needs her space and she needs to do her number.’ But she’s pretty remarkable.”

    3. Jolie Pitt had two interesting childhood crushes: Star Trek’s Spock and Anthony Perkins in Psycho. In 1999, she appeared on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart and explained her feelings for the Vulcan. “He was so repressed,” she said, “and you just wanted to make him scream.”

    4. After Jolie Pitt gave birth to her daughter Shiloh in 2006, she and Pitt sold the first photos of the baby to People for a reported $4.1 million, which the couple donated to charity. When Brangelina’s twins were born in 2008, the photos were reportedly sold for $11 million, setting the record for the most expensive baby pictures ever purchased. Again, the parents put the money toward charity.

    5. After Jolie Pitt detailed her experience getting a double mastectomy in a May 2013 New York Times op-ed (she would write another one, about her oophorectomy, in March 2015), the editorial contributed to a significant increase in BRCA gene testing. Dubbed “The Angelina Effect,” the increase was documented in a study by Breast Cancer Research, which found referrals in the U.K. increased nearly 2.5 times in June and July 2013, and continued at two times that rate until October of that year. The study also argued that the demand for BRCA testing almost doubled after Jolie Pitt’s op-ed.
