Angelina Jolie Talks Guerlain Collaboration: Her First International Beauty Campaign in 10 Years!

Angelina Jolie Talks Guerlain Collaboration: Her First International Beauty Campaign in 10 Years!

Angelina Jolie is opening up in the Marie Claire May 2017 issue about her new campaign with fragrance Mon Guerlain, her first international beauty campaign in ten years.

The actress, director, and humanitarian also spoke about the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation, balancing work and her humanitarianism, and more. Here’s what she shared…

On why she decided to work with Guerlain: “It was a brand my mother loved, so I knew it from my childhood. It spoke to her, as it does to me, of beauty, history, and quality; one of the oldest perfume houses in the world, from France, a country I love and feel connected to.”

On balancing both parts of her career—acting and humanitarian work: “This has been my life for many years; one role feeds the other. It is a joy to be an artist, but it doesn’t mean very much unless that work is somehow useful in some way and contributes to others.”

On her mother, actress Marcheline Bertrand: “She was a very natural woman who never spoiled herself, never wore makeup, and wore modest jewelry, but she always had a few special items for when she wanted to feel like a lady. One of those— and I remember it because it seemed so elegant—was her Guerlain powder. I think all women have those few special things that make them feel feminine.”

    I like this!!!

    Lovely pictures.

  • Beedyq

    Sounds a lot like the HELLO interview and others that have appeared in other publications for Mon Guerlain now for months. Perhaps MC added that it is the MJP when that is not what she said previously and is not correct for the efforts in Ethiopia or Namibia which have different names.

    Nice thread though.

  • sandra

    that is why she has no ambitions like oscar nominations or cares what the critics say about her work (like others who live for that). That is why she will never be lonely again.

  • Saffron

    Yes, it does.

  • Beedyq

    Agree with some of what you said but don’t get the connection to loneliness at all from this oft repeated single interview with spin added as it travelled around the Globe and was oft translated lol

  • sandra

    this image made me a fan. Its so painfull to see the boy tied to a tree like an animal. But you can feel the pain but also the empathy. Striking. What a woman.

  • Beedyq

    Almost verbatim right?

    Guess the US Guerlain campaign is coming in like a kitten with softness and not with any different campaign. Was thinking that Angie would maybe do an appearance in the US for Mon Guerlain but it appears right now that is not happening.

  • Saffron

    Yep, almost verbatim. But, not everyone read HELLO so it’ll be new to many. It’s a nice interview. I do wish, for us, it had something new.

  • Beedyq

    “I do wish, for us, it had something new”

    Me too, as you said for those who have seen this before it is old news but will be new to others. Angie did what she was required to do and that was it.

  • Saffron

    That image gets me every time. She has an incredible soul. I always wonder what happened to that little boy and then I wonder if I really want to know.

  • surreal

    That’s an “old” interview? But lovely pics.

  • Beedyq

    Over 2 months old interview but just appearing in US Marie Claire.

    Pics are from TMalick shot ad with Angie done in 2 days in September 2016 in Miraval France.

  • Lace

    I had hoped it was a new interview but I guess the UK Hello Interview hasb’t been read in all America media so for US this will be new.

  • surreal

    Thx. I remember reading about it on the DM, I think they copied it from Hello.

  • Lace

    That was and still is a very powerfully image, they say a picture speaks a thousand words.I guess this is one of them. Makes me wonder what happend to this child, now?

  • Beedyq

    Yes it is almost word for word the same HELLO interview.

  • sandra

    me too. I even feel ashamed to be a human being knowing how some of us treat our children

  • Lace

    I have a feeling she just did that ONE Exclusive interview and that is it for Mon Guerlain.

  • Beedyq

    Pic makes me cry at the sad state of a world where a child in such need exists. Angie’s heart is huge.

  • Beedyq

    I think you are right, because the original ONE interview was in French, then HELLO copied it, and other copycats now like MC have followed suit.

  • sandra

    Newsweek 2007

    “This interview was pretty moving to me, and includes a very touching photograph of Angelina holding a 7 year-old boy tied to a tree. He was just three when he went missing in Dafur for two days while his village was bombed, and was never the same since. He now lives with his mother and four siblings in a refugee camp in Chad. His mother keeps him tied up so that he won’t run away or hurt himself.”

  • Beedyq

    Not something US media would be terribly interested in, a French firm’s press for a new fragrance is not headline grabbing. Even from Angie because she stayed on the subject of Mon Guerlain lol

  • Lace

    I don’t think Hello copied it as such, as she gave them same answers, she has a good will with Hello.There were some diffrent answers from Hello the one she gave to French media.

  • Lace

    Trust me we all have seen it before they will still twist her words and make it some fake news just to please their hens.

  • Beedyq

    Exactly. Without a doubt. Always. But there is little in this interview to twist.

  • Beedyq

    So you think she actually spoke to HELLO but with similar answers? Interviews are remarkably similar but yes there are a few differences.

    And noticed that MC interview is the only one mentioning MJP, French and HELLO say “our” foundation.

  • Lace

    Hey Bee give the media some credit they will twist it, believe me they will still twist it, the likes of Lainey will say Angelina on purpose put this interview out the day Brad was seen in his linen shirt .

  • Lace

    Yes she has, as some Q&A’s are diffrent, they appear similar yet the wording is diffrent, French interview was lost in translation whereas English Hello was clear as Chrystal of any misinterpretations..That is my take, you might have a diffrent opinion that.

  • Beedyq

    LOL

    Lamey and her endless redic conspiracy theories about everyone and everything.

    Of course the twisting and spinning will commence as it always does and has.

  • Lace

    she wanted brange war yet she got nothing LOL. She still will spin her wonky eye.

  • yolly

    Her joy is helping others and be useful. Still hoping that Brad and her will reconcile. God bless them both plus their 6 children.

  • Beedyq

    Something is almost always lost in translations, that is a given. I did enjoy the HELLO interview, agree Angie has a good relationship with them.

  • Lace

    When they spoke to her about the JPF and the donation she was very through with them, JP’s always had a good relationship with them.Unlike the faker’s like fake news Peeps and fake Peeps exclusives.

  • Beedyq

    She does all she can to make this nonexistent war a reality and has completely failed exactly like her fellow gossip media. Their problem is that all info is locked down, they have no sources, so it is lie rinse repeat again LOL

  • Lace

    Please keep praying for them, I know we may be in a minority but its assuring to still see some fans still holding up for a miracle where this family of 8 is concerned.

  • Beedyq

    Yes she was clear and precise when speaking about the JPF to HELLO. That mag is well run.

  • Lace

    Its been on lock down for a long time that is why the media is spinning in circles, no wonder Brad changed his number and bulked up the security lots of crazies out there LOL.

  • Saffron

    Thanks, sandra. I’d forgotten about the mom part. I still wonder about him, though.

  • Lace

    She was crystal clear.

  • Beedyq

    Crazies like zombies LOL

  • Lace

    Brain dead in more ways than one.

  • Saffron

    If a pic can have that effect on us, can you imagine being haunted by the experience of holding and talking to the little boy? I remember Angie saying she’d cry for days and then realized no one needed her tears, they needed her help. So she buckled up, dried her tears and went to work. She is just amazing.

  • Beedyq

    LMAO
    Totally!!!

  • Lace

    How are your studies going?

  • Beedyq

    Which ones?

  • Lace

    Weren’t you doing law? or am i wrong ?

  • yolly

    They are in my prayers everyday. Never give up.

  • Lace

    Thank you yolly.

  • Beedyq

    No that is not me lol

    I was one of the many doing some researching about CA divorce law months ago but moved on from that. I do work with Court systems and legal issues but not as a lawyer.

    But I have actually thought about law school and might take the plunge and do it in the next couple of years.

  • Lace

    I see , sorry i misunderstood, see lost in translation LOL.
