Angelina Jolie Reveals What She's Doing While Taking a Break From Work

Angelina Jolie has been keeping a low key lately, and apart from promoting new movie First They Killed My Father, which she directed, she’s taking a break from work.

“I’m just wanting to make the proper breakfast and keep the house,” Angelina said in her revealing Vanity Fair cover story. “That’s my passion. At the request of my kids, I’m taking cooking classes. As I go to sleep at night, I think, Did I do a great job as a mom or was that an average day? I’ve been trying for nine months to be really good at just being a homemaker and picking up dog poop and cleaning dishes and reading bedtime stories. And I’m getting better at all three. But now I need to get my boots on and go hang, take a trip.”

Angelina also spoke about her split from Brad Pitt, a surprising health diagnosis, and more with the mag. Be sure to check it out!

    I gotta do it. FIRST!!!! LOL!!! And Angie looks DIVINE in that photo.

  • Nostalgia

    I have nothing against her but come on, she’s just like all the other celebrities, which means: she’s not a homemaker, she doesn’t pick up dog poop/clean dishes/read bedtime stories. That’s what the hired staff and nannies do for her.

  • Puma

    She’s been put through hell by putz and he’s been cheesing it up with hollyweird folk while she has to take care of 6 kids and reassure them

    Thank god Jon voight FINALLY stepped up for his daughter.

    Ugly jane and Bill can take their pervert son back to the mid west with the ugly Pitt grandchildren that do not have Angelina’s dna. Leave ange and her 6 babies alone.

    God bless the Jolie-voight family.

  • TaraTeller

    as if she cooks and cleans AND cleans up dog poop. this woman is so insufferable and pretentious.

    divinely photoshopped

  • lyric

    Please tell me how you know the number of staff personnel Angie has and if they live there or come and go? You’re assuming she has lots of people working for her but you don’t know and neither does anyone else here. I have a lady that cleans my house and I would never expect her to pick up my dog’s poop. I do the dishes before she comes so she can do the deep cleaning. I believe It’s quite plausible that Angie would clean up after the dog and do the dishes. She’s not a lazy person. Not criticizing you just stating my opinion. 😊

  • lyric

    I agree, she is stunning.

    I hate that she always plays the victim. If she didn’t want pity she wouldn’t always complain about her health issues to the world. And now she has no life because she has to be homemaker for the kids. Like we buy it.

  • Maria M.

    Poor Angelina. Boo hoo

    Stunning and honest and gives no F***S. Only difference is she can’t speak lIke she use too because of the kids. I commend her for thay.
    Fools run in to hate bit they rush in. She owns them.

  • Markus

    The New York Post has called her out on this pity party interview.

    Does Angelina Jolie really believe that anyone is buying this?

  • sandra

    this.honest and doesnt give a shit of what haters think of her.

  • suzybel

    Ya, like you really have to practice picking up dog poop, to get like, you know, good at it. Ya, go hang, take a trip, a long one.

  • TaraTeller

    she is so full of sh*t. she’s going to hire a decorator to furnish her house, it’s big enough that she doesn’t need to go into the shower to cry (*rolls eyes) and her pity party is way bigger and phonier than Jennifer Aniston’s. She’s exploited all her kids before they were even born. ugh, she’s such a phony.

  • plez

    The internet has made people simple. Try reading a book so you can learn how to understand the deeper meaning. It’s not just about picking up poop.

  • Puma

    Lmao the victim. Her children are the victims of Brad’s abuse.

  • rosaryblue

    This sounds so lame. She’s been a mother for 15 years at this point and she’s only learning to keep house and cook? Ridiculous. I get that she probably has a cook and a maid, which is great. I would have one too if I was her. But why make these lame comments? This is her PR right now and it’s bizarre. She’s been laying low bc she did her husband dirty blowing him up in public like that and she knows it.

  • AWHODAT

    There are only a few things in life that are certain: death; taxes; and the pond scum that infests every thread about the indomitable Angelina Jolie. See below.

    … You the speech natzi?… That guy did himself dirty… Who the heck he think he is, Donald Trump.

  • forest4trees

    I don’t like the styling but the interview is fine.

  • Pimpcessa

    Lol, Angelina Jolie the poop picker upper. NOT! Why is she lying about something so ridiculous? Does she really think anyone believes she’s picking up poop or washing dishes? Honey, you just ain’t that good of an actor!

  • lyric

    Hi forest4trees. May I ask a question about Angie and Brad’s divorce petition since I reside in CA as well? If they never file for the final decree do their petitions just stay in limbo until a judge decides to throw them out and if he/she doesn’t throw them out is there an expiration date?

  • Pimpcessa

    “He knows kind of the rule—don’t make them play with you. Just be a cool grandpa who’s creative, and hang out and tell stories and read a book in the library.”

    This is what AJ said in VF about her own father. She evidently tells him how to be around her kids, as if he’s not allowed to be himself..

  • Gemi

    Whether it takes 1, 5, or 10 years from now, I hope Brad and Angelina come to a point where they can go together as a family and do family things comfortably. However, it is clear they are not in that point yet.

    She is remaking her fantasy world from her delusions, lies and deception.

  • forest4trees

    No.

  • forest4trees

    Hi Lyric! From what we know they are still in the process of resolving the custody issues. That can take whatever time it takes. If they wanted to be divorced they could move forward with the financial issues but that is unusual and IMO that would be very detrimental to Brad’s reunification with the kids.

  • lyric

    Thank you very much for the info. 😊

  • forest4trees

    Anytime Lyric!

  • Gemi

    From the outside you thought Brad had it all- career, wife, kids, but deep inside he was just not happy and resorted to alcohol to ease the misery. Glad to know he has stopped drinking and is getting better. It may be too late to repair his relationship with Angelina, but hopefully not too late for his kids.

  • LetMeTranslate

    If Angie truly wants a divorce, why would she care if it ruins Brad’s reunification plans with the kids? Surely Brad can reunite with the kids post-divorce too with intense therapy.

    Why is it unusual to move forward with financial issues in a divorce? They have a prenup so it should be easily resolve in case of divorce.

  • toastie postie
  • lyric

    Maybe and maybe not. We don’t know how these two really feel about each other but I hope they are still in love and are working to see if they can salvage their marriage. Can’t give up yet. 😊💕. And I believe his relationship with their kids is good.

  • forest4trees

    I think you answered your own question. It’s not unusual to move forward but it generally is the other way around. Many, many times we moved on with only termination of status and custody/support resolution but finacials TBD. Angie doesn’t care about the financials. This is a woman who let Billy Bob Thornton live in a house she owned rent free for almost a decade.

  • LetMeTranslate

    How about Brad? He doesn’t care about the financials too?

  • forest4trees

    I have ZERO clues what Brad Pitt cares about anymore.

  • lyric

    I may not be right but I imagine he cares about his financial position as he has many people on staff to pay like a manager, agent, security, PR person (?), They don’t come cheap. Perhaps the reason he does a film each year is not just because he loves making movies but for the financial aspect as well. JMO

  • forest4trees

    IMO he has many, many income streams that preclude films lyric. Brad’s film revenue has been significantly reduced since he and Angie coupled up with little diminishment to his lifestyle.

  • Originaljpf

    lyric, there are days when I believe that they will find their way back but both of them sound very resolved in moving on without much more of a relationship beyond being the parents of six kids. Funny that today I was thinking “d@mn! all those tats dedicated to each other, and custom jewelry inspired created just for the other and God knows what else inspired by love for the other.” This was not just any other “celeb” couple. I really believe they had it bad for each other. Oh well.

  • Originaljpf

    I agree. Whatever happened on that plane was an emotional game changer that make take more time than even those who know and love them both want to give them. I have a feeling they’re the type that as fierce as they loved, they can be even more so when in hate.
