Angelina Jolie Wants to Honor the 'Roots' of Her Adopted Children

Angelina Jolie is opening up about her family and how she wants to honor the “roots” of her adopted children.

The 45-year-old actress spoke to Vogue in a brand new interview that was published this week.

“Each is a beautiful way of becoming family,” Angelina said about having kids biologically vs. adopting kids. “What is important is to speak with openness about all of it and to share. ‘Adoption’ and ‘orphanage’ are positive words in our home. With my adopted children, I can’t speak of pregnancy, but I speak with much detail and love about the journey to find them and what it was like to look in their eyes for the first time.”

“All adopted children come with a beautiful mystery of a world that is meeting yours,” she added. “When they are from another race and foreign land, that mystery, that gift, is so full. For them, they must never lose touch with where they came from. They have roots that you do not. Honor them. Learn from them. It’s the most amazing journey to share. They are not entering your world — you are entering each other’s worlds.”

Angelina and ex-husband Brad Pitt‘s 18-year-old son Maddox was adopted from Cambodia, their 16-year-old son Pax was adopted from Vietnam, and 15-year-old daughter Zahara was adopted from Ethiopia. The former couple also are the parents of 14-year-old daughter Shiloh and 11-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

In the interview, Angelina opened up about why she split from Brad.

Angelina Jolie Reveals Two of Her Daughters Underwent Surgeries

Angelina Jolie has revealed in an essay on International Women’s Day that two of her daughters both underwent surgeries recently.

“I have spent the last two months in and out of surgeries with my eldest daughter (Zahara, 15), and days ago watched her younger sister go under the knife for a hip surgery,” the actress, director and humanitarian wrote in a Time essay. “They know that I am writing this, because I respect their privacy and we discussed it together and they encouraged me to write. They understand that going through medical challenges and fighting to survive and heal is something to be proud of.”

“I have watched my daughters care for one another. My youngest daughter studied the nurses with her sister, and then assisted the next time. I saw how all my girls so easily stopped everything and put each other first, and felt the joy of being of service to those they love,” Angelina added. “I also watched them their face fears with a resolute bravery. We all know that moment when no one else can help us, and all we can do is close our eyes and breathe. When only we can take the next step or breath through the pain, so we steady ourselves and do it.”

“Little girls’ softness, their openness and instinct to nurture and help others, must be appreciated and not abused. We must do much more to protect them, in all societies: not only against the extreme ways girls’ rights are often violated, but also the more subtle injustices and attitudes that so often go unnoticed or excused,” she added. “So my wish on this day is that we value girls. Care for them. And know that the stronger they grow, the healthier they will be and the more they will give back to their family and community.”

She concluded her essay, “And my message to girls is, fight on, little ladies. Your care for each other will be a large part of your way forward. Hold your nerve. Know your rights. And never let anyone tell you that you are not precious and special and, above all, equal.”

Angelina did not give details about the surgeries. She shares six kids with Brad Pitt: Knox and Vivienne, 11, Shiloh, 13, Zahara, 15, Pax, 16, and Maddox, 18.

Here's the Reason Why Brad Pitt Didn't Mention His Kids in Golden Globes 2020 Acceptance Speech

Brad Pitt won a Golden Globe for his work in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and some fans were left wondering something after his acceptance speech.

Brad didn’t mention his six children with his ex Angelina Jolie during the speech.

A source close to Brad reportedly told TMZ that the reason he omitted his kids from his speech was actually strategic, as “he never mentions them publicly and wants it to remain that way.” Brad believes that by mentioning his kids, it could cause them unwanted attention.

The couple shared Maddox, 18, Pax, 16, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 11.
