Angelina Jolie Reveals Her Hopes For Her Six Children

Angelina Jolie Reveals Her Hopes For Her Six Children

Angelina Jolie arrives for the Women in the World summit on Monday (September 11) in Toronto, Canada.

The actress, director, and humanitarian spoke about her six children, who joined her at the Toronto Film Festival for her premieres this week.

“I hope they’re being raised to see the value of diversity, the value of other people. They ask the questions we’re all asking. They see what’s happening in Syria or in Myanmar and they ask why, and we’re all trying to find the same answers,” Angelina said. “I will look for all different ways to communicate about their histories and really to teach them.”

“We homeschool and I’m very very aware of their education, mostly very aware of what’s lacking. For example it’s very important to me my daughter Zahara doesn’t start learning about her history through the civil rights movement in America, that’s not how she begins to learn about herself as a young African-American,” Angelina continued. “She needs to learn about the great history of Africa and who she is…and not start with the civil rights (movement).”

    Man, this bitch is never going to let these kids have any privacy. She never shuts up about their lives and drags them all over the place. The littlest girl always looks miserable when she’s in the public eye.

    Her fake huge stripper tits look ridiculous on her skeletal frame.

    Where’s everybody at? Still at the last thread?

  • African Girl

    “She needs to learn about the great history of Africa and who she is”

    Makes sense!! 👍🏽

  • African Girl

    So many threads, it is hard to keep up…Lol

  • Beedyq

    I totally agree.

  • Passing Through

    Yep. They’ll dry up at the end of the week, so we’d better enjoy it now.

  • TaraTeller

    “we” homeschool? “we”? brad isn’t coming back, bitch.

  • Passing Through

    I like the fact that she said Zee shouldn’t start with the civil rights movement. The civil rights movement is not who black people are as a people. It’s what white America has made us become.

  • sandra

    Who is that Blonde ? A new assistent ? for a moment I thought she was Batfleck new girlfriend.:)

  • African Girl

    Precisely!!!

  • Beedyq

    Since Angie is due in NYC for a FTKMF screening and Q&A on Thursday she will probably have other promos scheduled while there as well so I expect she will go there today or tomorrow at the latest, and be back in LA by Friday as she and Loung are scheduled to attend the Cambodian Film fest Saturday in Long Beach. Her east coast swing for FTKMF 😎

    Saw a thread on Jared’s homepage that Lady Gaga says she has fibromyalgia. Welcome to the pain clubl!

    BTW
    – Was at Walmart yesterday and saw the Peeps Fail cover. Madge is
    desperate for publicity because she gave them pix and an interview about
    her new life in Portugal with her 4 youngest kids. The need some of
    these celebs have for attention is ridic. Just move and live your life
    and stop trying to convince the world how great your life is. The
    article includes a bunch of pix with the kids, too. Just SMH. Why,
    Madge, why?

    Take your choice….
    Netflix publicist
    Assistant for trip
    BG
    whatever and whomever????
    😁 😆

  • Beedyq

    Because she is aging and the celebrity spotlight has dimmed and she is going to do all she can to keep it as bright as possible as long as possible.

  • Passing Through

    Yes, she has a full week – but I don’t remember seeing much scheduled for next week, so that’s why I think the threads are going to dry up again. Brad seems to be underground working on Ad Astra so who knows when we’ll see pix of him again.

  • Beedyq

    I have seen zip scheduled after this week.

    Trip back to the desert again upcoming
    😁 😆 😅 😂 🤣

  • Passing Through

    That’s why it’s so pathetic. She just turned 59 and she’s desperately trying to cling to 29. I’m shocked she doesn’t have a boy toy in tow and hasn’t for a few years now.

  • Passing Through

    Doubt she’s a BG because the other BG is there. I really do think she works for Netflix. She wasn’t at Telluride so I doubt she’s a new assistant.

  • toastie postie

    Yep. She’s trending so JJ is going to make the most of it. Get those hits. Otherwise sometimes we have to email them to get them to post something about her that is on the news. Like most admired woman, etc.
    But thanks to them.

    Angelina Jolie dazzles with her children on red carpet at Toronto premiere

    Angelina Jolie has said her children “worked hard” on the set of her new film as they joined her for the red carpet premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
    The film, First They Killed My Father, is adapted from a memoir by activist and lecturer Loung Ung, which tells of her survival under former Cambodian leader Pol Pot.
    Wearing a stylish, off the shoulder black dress, Jolie was joined by her six children: sons Pax and Maddox, who worked on the film, as well as the rest of her brood – Zahara, Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne.

    Completing the line-up on the red carpet was Ung and two of the film’s stars – Sareum Srey Moch and Kimhak Mun.
    Asked about having her children on set, Jolie said: “They worked hard.”

    The actress adopted Maddox from Cambodia in 2002 and Pax from Vietnam in 2007.
    Ung said: “They really were wonderful. I mean it was so important for Mad, he’s so used to being a big brother to all the siblings that when he was on the set it was a natural transition for him to just be big brother to everybody else. It was lovely, I loved it.”

    Jolie, 42, also revealed she was less nervous about the film’s second outing which was at Toronto and found its first debut in Cambodia more nerve-wracking.“We brought this film back to Cambodia (for a premiere there) and when we did I think she (Ung) and I didn’t sleep for about a week before, so this one’s not as hard,” she told Associated Press, adding: “This one isn’t as much. It doesn’t weigh as much on us.

    “This film is made for the country, with the country, and to bring it here is a pleasure, I’m so happy we got into this festival, that we’re here, but the pressure was on then.”
    Directed by Jolie, the film starts in the 70s when Ung was a child living a normal family life and chronicles her life as she struggles to survive the genocide and escape the Khmer Rouge regime.Reflecting on Ung’s struggle, Jolie said: “Well, it’s painful for her because that’s her history and her life and it was painful for me to think about what Loung went through when she was little and I was very proud about what everybody went through in Cambodia, what they were able to do on set and watch them work and create.
    “One of the things the Khmer Rouge did was they killed the artists and those who could be expressive and so to see Cambodian artists rising and creating felt like things were – and even into today – Cambodia needs its voice, its civil society, it needs for all that, it’s still continuing to fight and we need to stand with those artists.”The Mr And Mrs Smith star said she felt fortunate to have a platform to be able to “discuss these issues” and added she “felt very much for people who do not have a voice around the world and many of the atrocities going on where people were not able to get attention and be focused on help, so we all have to do our part”.

    First They Killed My Father will debut on Netflix on September 15.

    Education is key to fighting humanitarian crises: Angelina Jolie

    TORONTO — With so many humanitarian crises in the world, it’s on everyone to educate themselves and continue pushing for democracy and human rights, Angelina Jolie told a Toronto conference focusing on women Monday.

    “There’s just so much for all of us to do and the first and foremost is we have to just get the best education … With all that’s accessible to us sometimes we get completely overwhelmed and we don’t know what to believe and what to do, so I’m just trying to listen to other women, I’m trying to lend my voice where possible,” Jolie told the Women in the World summit in an afternoon panel.

    “We all need to do, I think, even more than we’ve ever done because we’re at a very dark time.”

    The filmmaker and special envoy for the United Nations refugee agency was in Toronto to promote “First They Killed My Father,” a movie about the Khmer Rouge era in Cambodia, which was to have its Canadian premiere Monday night at the Toronto International Film Festival. Jolie directed, co-wrote and co-produced the film.

    She said bringing her six children — three of whom were adopted from orphanages in Cambodia, Ethiopia and Vietnam — to work on movies and humanitarian projects around the world has been a key part of their education.

    Her son Maddox Jolie-Pitt, who was born in Cambodia, was involved in “First They Killed My Father” and has a producer credit on the film.

    “I hope they’re being raised to see the value of diversity, the value of other people,” Jolie said. “They ask the questions we’re all asking. They see what’s happening in Syria or in Myanmar and they ask why, and we’re all trying to find the same answers.”

    It’s particularly important that they learn about their own background from a culturally relevant perspective, she said.

    “I will look for all different ways to communicate about their histories and really to teach them,” she said.

    “We homeschool and I’m very very aware of their education, mostly very aware of what’s lacking. For example it’s very important to me my daughter Zahara doesn’t start learning about her history through the civil rights movement in America, that’s not how she begins to learn about herself as a young African-American,” she said.

    “She needs to learn about the great history of Africa and who she is…and not start with the civil rights (movement).”

    THANK YOU so much for all the awesome JP treats- so glad FTKMF & Breadwinner are getting tons of praise- yea!! It will prob take me days to catch up, but I did see the troll meltdown…how many HOURS/DAYS/YEARS has the troll spent here being in pain over the JPs & their fans??!!! This comment re: folks whinging about HRC being in public spaces reminded me of all our many, many, many years of dealing with fat tick & her 6 trolls who can’t ever quit the JPs:

    She’s living rent-free inside their tiny little heads, and they’re going insane trying to claw her out of there. https://wonkette.com/622790/hillary-clinton-casually-suggests-bernie-sanders-not-messiah-which-is-just-fucking-rude
