Angelina Jolie Explains Why She Loves Being in Menopause

Angelina Jolie is opening up about going into early menopause and why she’s enjoying this stage of life.

The 40-year-old actress had her ovaries and Fallopian tubes removed back in March, but she says the experience of going into menopause has not been a bad one.

“I actually love being in menopause,” Angelina told Australia’s Daily Telegraph. “I haven’t had a terrible reaction to it, so I’m very fortunate.”

“I feel older, and I feel settled being older,” she added. “I feel happy that I’ve grown up. I don’t want to be young again.”

    I like that she is talking about her experience. So many women feel like the world is going to end when it happens to them. It has been happening to women since the dawn of time.. Good for her.

  • wika

    She and ticky are two world apart. I can’t imagine ticky ever saying this- not especially with all her attempts at trying to seem young with her plastic surgeries and god awful roles. But I guess now that Angelina’s mentioned this, she might stalk her and use her words…won’t be surprised.. lol

    Also, I really hope I’ll have a good menopause experience as Angelina lol, lucky woman!

  • wika

    JJ didn’t include that Angelina said she felt settled with her children and Brad. Always feels nice to hear her say she feels settled. I wish I’d feel settled at her age, cross my fingers..

    Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. Those are so cute!! Several I like. But favorite is the two cats together – bigger is the black one. Which was that way for us. The oldest was a black cat, who was the Godfather of the block. Very grumpy and ignored us after we brought in another cat. Held a grudge forever!

  • Beck

    Excited for the TBS premiere later, hope we get good video footage of Brad talking.

  • Lily

    I am so glad Brad finally wrapped War Machine, god it felt like forever filming of this movie. I was checking War Machine IMDB site, noticed “Birdman” producer James W. Skotchdopole is the Executive producer of War Machine, I have a feeling War Machine is going to be amazing.

  • Dawne

    Some of the proceeds go to aspca………hope you get one for Xmas.

  • Roxana fan jp

    es verdad o un rumor que Angelina va actuar en la novia de Frankenstein ???

  • wika

    Randomly came across this quote… does anyone knows when Brad said this?

    Troll getting its conspiracy freak on,.

  • wika

    Yeah can’t wait to see him and the boys.. I like the casting. Okay actually I just like Brad and Bale LOL

  • Dawne

    This was way back but couldn’t tell you more than that…….just recall the 8th wonder of the world comment.

  • wika

    I recall some of the fans here mentioned the exhibiting her part too, I just don’t know what’s the actual source of it lol!

  • wika

    I thought it was long too then I remembered it only started filming end August. LOL I kept thinking it started earlier in August.

  • Beck

    definitely never read that before

  • Lily

    It was only 3 months but felt freakin long. lol

  • toastie postie

    Oh wow! Thank you, Dawne. That was so beautiful. I got teary at the end. The perfect person to sing it, a wonderful person with a beautiful voice. She’s going thru her own personal crisis, but nothing will put her down. Nor will France be intimidated.

    Love her dress – perfection was Celine last night. Sorry I missed it. Thanks again!!! Kudos to your fellow Canadian.

    “Secret in their Eyes received mixed reviews from critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, the movie had a rating of 42% with the site’s critical consensus saying: “Secret in Their Eyes wastes its incredible cast on a remake that fails to improve upon – or even make a compelling case for its own existence in addition to – the remarkable original.”

    But, the worst part of all is that the movie bombed in the box office. According to reports, Secret in their Eyes made only $6.63 million in the United States and only $443,000 around the world, against a movie budget of 19.5 million dollars.”

    Sweet!

    Love the pictures – two of my favorite Brad admiring his treasure and love.

  • toastie postie

    She looks so sweet in that clip.

  • Lily

    I think it was years ago in 2007 or something, Brad was asked if he liked Angie’s tattoos.

  • juju

    It was a french or belgian interview
    done in cannes
    but the quote was different

  • GroundControl500

    It was shot in multiple locations and setting up location sets took time, first in London, then moved to Abu Dhabi, then to Dubai in Ras El Khaimah, back to England, and finally in Berlin.

  • Felinelilly

    I love Celine. I saw this earlier, I was a little afraid she was going to put too much into the song but she sang it beautifully and made me cry. She’s one of my favorite singers. Mylene Farmer, another Canadian, has been my favorite female singer since I was 12.

  • Dawne

    I was at Huffpo and some bitter Betty wanted to know why at the American music awards they chose a Canadian to sing this? Geezuz, are you for real? Is the internet the place for people to showcase their colons or what?

  • juju

    they never moved back england
    it was the dail fail that made that up
    with old photos of the shooting in the UK
    at that time brad n other actors where on set in dubai in one of the locations

  • dianad1968

    It was one of Brad’s foreign press interviews. I can’t remember if it was print or television interview.

  • Jenny from the flop

    I love how JustJared cannot seem to gain care or comments in any article about their beloved kartrashians, bieber, j.lo …. but when when angelina is brought up, there’s 100 and more comments. goes to show, what the fans truly wants to read about. something to think about Jared ;)

  • dianad1968

    Was it in wide release?

  • wika

    Aren’t you spoiling yourself! Lol! It isn’t playing anywhere near you?

  • changeling

    Wide release — 2,392 theaters

  • toastie postie

    Awwwwwwwwwwww. Diesel wouldn’t have minded, I’m sure.
    BTW my daughter painted cute cats in different style kimonos, etc., one time for Christmas presents. In fact two of them are in my office and I’m looking at them right now.
    One is my son’s(that I stole when he moved out). Mine is a female with yarn by her side and knitting needles replacing the normal sticks(whatever they are called) in her Geisha wig.
    My son’s is a male in his judo or karate outfit and cute hair in disarray.

  • toastie postie

    Just goes to show, with all the information now available to everyone, some are still idiots.
    Before you comment on someone, look them up and Duh! Who else but Celine? Need someone with the pipes to sing such a song at such an emotional time. And in their native language.
    Great singer + an often American Music Award presenter, performer, receiver + French Speaking = Celine Dion. Duh!!!
