Angelina Jolie Talks About Avoiding an 'Empty Life'

Angelina Jolie Talks About Avoiding an 'Empty Life'

Angelina Jolie is opening up about balancing her work life and her personal life, plus how she avoids living an empty life.

“You have your creative, and you have your work, and every day of your life is going to be about somehow growing as a person,” the 42-year-old Oscar winner told Deadline. “Somehow feeling you can contribute to the extent that you can get tribute.”

“We’re all trying to find balance, as people,” she added. “I think to be a balanced person, you have to find those things that you just purely enjoy. But, of course, if you aren’t participating in the bigger picture of life, and in being somehow useful, and you aren’t doing something and growing, then really, you’ll find you’re not very happy. Really, you’ll have quite an empty life.”

Angelina also makes sure to put in time to her humanitarian work, something that her six kids have been involved in as well.

    I think he had some kind of cancer a year or 2 ago? I think probably that + a baby + her career getting 1000x busier….

    And I’ve said before….my mom’s cancer removed her “I’m going to phrase this kindly” filter….lol

    pollaro_inc I had so much fun at Thomas Houseago’s studio yesterday that I returned today. I was taken by the way his carving dust, shavings, and chunks of wood hit the floor. The byproduct of the art is also art. I am so grateful for the opportunity to visit. What an amazing week. #thomashouseago #sculptor .

    BBBBBWWWWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    Missouri’s hypocrite ReThug governor just got indicted for invasion of privacy. He had an affair and the woman said he took nude pix of her after he blind-folded and bound her. She said he told her if she told anyone about their affair he’d publish the pictures. She then taped a convo with her husband where she was telling him about the affair and what Greiten allegedly did. Of course he denies all the allegations of taking the nude pics but admitted to the affair. Then he and the wife said it was private matter in their marriage and Greitens had asked forgiveness from God, blah, blah, blah. Isn’t it amazing how it’s always easier for these fuckers to ask for forgiveness AFTER they commit adultery than to just NOT commit adultery in the first place?

    The film First They Killed My Father was an amazing masterpiece. Loved every minute, it really helped me understand what my mother went through in Laos when the communists came in. Highly recommend this film to anyone to understand what others are going through.

    first they killed my father has me in so much pain. i can’t believe there’s so much suffering in the world. i wish i could end it all &no one go through such trauma or tragic events

    Lorrence@cryptho2000 Feb 18
    Don’t give a sh*t about the #Oscars. #AngelinaJolie’s film ‘First They Killed My Father’ should have been nominated for #BestForeignFilms category. It is gorgeous and suspenseful. Sreymoch Sareum is both precocious & believable. #MustWatch #NetFlix

    s.e.@perdidoentokio Feb 19
    #FirstTheyKilledMyFather deserved so much better this past awards season. Angelina Jolie created something violent, unique and truly beautiful. The fact that the cinematography was overlooked by the #Oscars and ACS was a crime

    The poster is a nobody.
    The hallmarks of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) are grandiosity, a lack of empathy for other people, and a need for admiration. People with this condition are frequently described as arrogant, self-centered, manipulative, and demanding. They may also concentrate on grandiose fantasies.
    Those are some of Aniston’s characteristics and Brads self admitted ones by the way.
