With the upcoming premiere of Salt Angelina Jolie has become one of the most called-for persons by media. And her cover and interview for Vanity Fair August 2010 issue came as no surpise at all.
The actress looks beautiful and serious in the editorial with her hair long and loose. She wears a glamorous blue strapless gown.
Angelina Jolie gives a very candid interview and tells about her family, kids and career.
She says getting married is not the goal as she and Brad Pitt are already a family, they have kids and therefore huge responsibility that they share as a wife and husband:
We are not against getting married, it’s just like we already are. Children are clearly a commitment, a bigger commitment [than marriage]. It’s for life.”
Denying the rumours she is pregnant Angelina said:
No, I’m not pregnant. We’re not opposed to it. But we want to make sure we can give everybody special time. They’re kids now, and can play together, but they’re going to need a lot more talking in the middle of the night, like I did with my mom for hours. We want to make sure we don’t build a family so big that we don’t have absolutely enough time to raise them each really well.”
As kids are obviously more important for her, Jolie is going to quit her career soon:
It’s not the most important thing in my life. Acting helped me as I was growing up. It helped me learn about myself, helped me travel, helped me understand life, express myself, all those wonderful things. So I’m very, very grateful, it’s a fun job. It’s a luxury. Look, I’m at work today in the middle of Venice. But I don’t think I’ll do it much longer.”
The 35-years-old star can talk hours about her children:
Mad’s a real intellectual, which I can take no credit for genetically. He’s great at school, great at history. He feels like he could be a writer or travel the world and learn about places and things. Zahara’s got an extraordinary voice and is just so elegant and well spoken. Shiloh’s hysterically funny, one of the goofiest, most playful people you’ll ever meet. Knox and Viv are classic boy and girl. She’s really female. And he’s really a little dude.”
The actress is sure Shiloh is very like her in her early years:
Goofy and verbal, the early signs of a performer…. I used to get dressed up in costumes and jump around. But at some point, I got closed off, darker. I don’t remember anything happening. I think you just get hit with the realities of certain things in life, think too much, start to realize the world isn’t as you wished it would be, so you deepen. Then, as I had kids and got older—being goofy, lighter—it all came back.”
Angelina told Vanity Fair that she doesn’t mind Brad wearing such a weird beard:
I love Brad in every state.”
Talking about what her partner is capable of, she said:
He sculpts and designs. He makes furniture, sculpts things related to houses. Traditional male.”
People often ask if there to be a sequel of Mr. & Mrs. Smith. This is what Jolie thinks about it:
People have tried. And it’s strange: do we have kids in the movie? We’ve thought about that, but it becomes personal now that we actually have kids. And if we work on it, we pull from our own life, which is funny to us, but you feel strange sharing too much. We did ask somebody to look into Mr. & Mrs. to see if they could crack a sequel, but there wasn’t anything original. It was just, Well, they’re going to get married, or they’ve got kids, or they get separated. Never great.”
Despite the fact Angelina Jolie often says she will not work for long as an actress she considers the possibility of co-starring with Brad:
I’d love to. We’ve talked about it. We’d have to figure out who’s going to watch the kids, but it’s really about finding the right thing, because we’ve looked. When you’re a couple, there are certain things people don’t want to see you do. It becomes too indulgent, too personal. I don’t think people want to see people who are really together intimate on-screen. Maybe we have to play bad guys that try to kill each other, so it’s just fun and aggressive, not dealing with some man-woman deal.”
The August issue of Vanity Fair is on newsstands in New York and Los Angeles tomorrow, on Wednesday, June 30.
