Angelina Jolie Says Her Mom Would Have 'Thrived as a Grandmother'

Angelina Jolie Says Her Mom Would Have 'Thrived as a Grandmother'

Angelina Jolie is opening up about her late mother Marcheline Bertrand in a new interview.

The 41-year-old actress talked with Marianne Pearl, who she portrayed in the 2007 movie A Mighty Heart, for the new issue of Elle France.

“She would have thrived as a grandmother,” Angelina said when she was asked about how she tells her six kids about their grandma.

“I know how much she would have contributed to their lives and I am sad they will miss out on that,” she added. “I would give anything for her to be with me at this time. I’ve needed her. I talk to her often in my mind and try to think what she might say and how she might guide me.”

Marcheline passed away in January 2007 after a battle with ovarian cancer.

    AJ’s birthday is on June 4.

    I wonder what are the plans of the family for that special day.

  • bap

    I was wondering that myself.

    Both Angie and her Mother R beautiful!!!
    Such a sad moment 4 Angie on Mother’s Day!!!
    😣😔😞😟😢😭😦

    Maybe AJ was feeling mixed emotions: happiness & sadness. Happiness because I am sure the JP kids gave some surprises that definitely brought big smile on her face. Sadness because of the memory of her mom. Perhaps she remembered the times they celebrated Mother’s day when her mom was still alive.

    Glad that Maddox got to meet his grandmother. I hope he has good memories. Not sure if Zee would remember her.

  • Jo

    She must have missed her more especially at this time dealing with the major set-back of her life.

  • busted

    Didn’t see many comments. I’ll check back to see if this is the new thread.. Angie looked so much like her mother in that picture.

    I really Iike this picture of Angie and her mom. Marcheline was a beautiful lady. She and Angie do look alike. I wish she was still here so she could see how wonderful her grandchildren are and how her daughter is coping with everything. She would be proud.

  • toastie postie

    I agree. Love Angie’s style in this one also.

  • toastie postie

    Don’t know if this pix of Shi & Z at Disneyland was posted already. If so sorry.😆

    CUTE!!!!!!!!

    AJ is like Shiloh…you can’t tell from one second to another who she takes after. In this picture she is the exact copy of her mom but then you see her with her dad and they are almost identical.

  • toastie postie

    Yes!!! Chameleons. I think Knox is going to be the same way.

  • Beck

    Angie does look so much like both of them, I never noticed the JV resemblance when she was younger, but now I see it a lot. In Jamie as well.

  • toastie postie

    Definitely got her luscious lips from him.

    “Donald Trump has been on Twitter for nearly 48 straight hours, clearly making up for lost time during his international trip when his advisers took away his phone. The tweets have been all over the place, a sign of the sort of unhinged mania that has consumed Trump”

    He is totally unequivocally without any doubt insane, the US has a madman who might do anything without any restraints at anytime. I fear for my country. SMH

    50 still in hospital, 17 in critical care after Manchester attack

    Fifty patients are still being treated in hospital for injuries sustained in last week’s Manchester attack, including 17 who are in critical care, the health authority for England said on Tuesday.

    The suicide bombing at a pop concert venue killed 22 children and adults, and a total of 116 people received hospital treatment in the days immediately after the attack.

    The health authority, NHS England, said being in critical care was not the same as being critically ill. It provided no further explanation, but doctors and hospital officials said last week that some patients had suffered life-changing injuries to major organs and to limbs.

    Oh dear Lord. Praying they will get through this horror.

  • toastie postie

    Reminds me of King George III of Britain, who suffered mental illness late in life. But King George didn’t have nukes at his disposal.

    Whatever they are…I’m sure Brad will be excluded to the delight of all you Brad haters… Meow…

  • Passing Through

    Geez…hard to believe Z’s going to be 13 in 7 months. Brad and Angie will be shaking in their boots…3 HORMONAL teenagers with Shiloh just 18 months away from the tween years…

  • Passing Through

    AG -

    You KNOW you’re not supposed to point out that Angie looks like her crazy old fart father…

  • toastie postie

    Scary for sure!!!!!!!!!

  • toastie postie

    Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Troublemaker! 😖

  • Passing Through

    Been deliberately NOT following Drumpf news for the last few days – did they really take his phone away while he was on the foreign trip? If so – why’d they give it back? Do they just want to help him hang himself faster? If so, I’m all for that…

  • toastie postie

    That’s what some say. But meanwhile, his people have to go behind his back to the Europeans and say, ignore his rants against you, all because you wouldn’t let him make money off you.

  • Passing Through

    LOL! Seriously – they did that? Was that before or after Merkel told the UE they were on their own and couldn’t count on the US or UK for shite anymore? Or, in the US’s case – for possibly the next 4 years…

  • Passing Through

    One can only hope that the bombers are NOT enjoying their time in Dell – minus the 100 virgins they were promised in the afterlife…

  • toastie postie

    I saw where some of the advisers are telling the Europeans to ignore what he is saying, that the US is committed to NATO and their Allies. Right.

  • Dawne

    I think she meant Dad as Brad…referring to Shi.

  • Dawne

    I have no doubt Brad will recognize Angie on Mother`s Day….doing something with the kids for her.

  • African Girl

    Lmao!!! Oops my bad!!!! 😂😂😂

  • Passing Through

    AG was saying that Angie looks like JV as well as her mother – and that the same is true of Shiloh. Some people like to ignore how much Angie looks like JV. I can’t remember which movie Angie was promoting – maybe Wanted – and the guy who about his one-on-one press call interview with her said it had screwed with his head that most beautiful woman on planet was the spitting image of her FATHER. LOL!

  • toastie postie

    Flynn will provide some documents to Senator intel.

    I know Dell is a shite computer but I had no idea they were desperately offering virgins as incentives.

    ETA Of course I hope the victims are recovering. Sorry to say as good as the UK is in ferreting out potential attacks and cells there are always those lone wolves who slip through the cracks. Thankfully he didn’t get into the arena section.

  • toastie postie

    😂😂😂sitting, typing on my Dell that has been freezing lately.

  • GroundControl500

    Why not? It’s hilarious. Might as well laugh as we go to our doom. #wereallgonnadie

    But but horses.
    Damn no emoticoms on my laptop.

  • toastie postie

    Wasn’t that King Henry? Or was that Richard III?

  • gemdiamond

    I think it was in the ‘Marie Claire’ Interview!!!
    By Rich ……….. (I just couldn’t remember his Surname)

  • Dawne

    Oh, okay, I read it wrong. Yes, Angie is a lot like JV but you can sure see Mom there as well.

  • Dawne

    LMAO. What a wizard can do with a typo……

    I think Angie looks more like her mom.

    But Marcheline had beautiful full lips too. 😊

    I bet the kids and their dad have lovely plans for Angie’s Bday. And she will enjoy having all of them with her on her special day.
