Angelina Jolie Loving Life With Brad Pitt, Kids

by at . Comments

From her home life with Brad Pitt and their children to her rebellious youth, to her wildly successful career, humanitarian work and her relentless run-ins with and coverage by the paparazzi, Angelina Jolie is a fascinating individual.

Parade got the Salt star to open up about many of the above topics in a lengthy interview for its new issue. Below are some excerpts from her Q&A ...

On whether Brangelina's kids keep them together: "The children tie us together, but a relationship won't hold if it's only about kids. You must be really interested in each other and have a really wonderful, exciting time together. We do."

On how her family completes her: "Brad knows me completely, exactly as I am, every part of me. He loves me. The children love me. They know all my flaws and all my oddities. And they accept them. And so I can feel complete."

Angelina Jolie is one cool chick.

On her rebellious past: "I used to cut myself or jump out of airplanes, trying to find something new to push up against because sometimes everything else felt too easy. I was searching for something deeper, something more. I tried everything."

On celebrity gossip coverage: "We do everything we can to keep our kids away from it. We travel to places where the kids aren't aware of that kind of thing. We try to give them a full life where they don't have to come face to face with that world."

On being happy at home: "There's never a period when Brad and I are pulled apart. We are not separated for more than three days, ever. We stay really connected. We actually don't go out much. It's funny. We're very homebound."

On her late mother, Marcheline Bertrand, who died in 2007: "Mother never put herself first, ever. At the end, she said her greatest success was being a mother. She said she had missed nothing in life except getting to know her grandchildren."

You Guy have a poison mind,
Please consider her goodness outside world,YES you hate and blame Angie, for brad and jen breakup. Why dont you open your eye and see the reason? BLAME YOUR JEN for not giving Brad a child,a chid,achid they are the reason and the joy of life "A CHILD".
There are million of people out there who appreciate Angie's work for the good and change for the needy.she donated her children's million magazine money. Why dont you not talk about those?
Jenifer Lopez and Mark A also received magazine million for the twin, and where is the money why not coments for those.

I agree with Stella22, she is a phony and the fact that she has to tell everyone about their home life, how MUCH Brad loves her and the "secret" tattoo that she has MADE SURE everyone knows about, well I think she is feeling insecure and is giving this interview with the hopes that Jen will read it and not try to "STEAL" her man from her. Hellooooo, how sweet would that be. Jolie....you have the beauty on the outside, but a TRUE BEAUTY has it INSIDE and OUT.

She is so insecure, jealous and immature!! She STOLE Brad while he was MARRIED!! She has every reason to worry-there is no garantee that he will not leave her too-as he should!! She thinks that having a bazzilion kids will keep him there, and so far it was worked only cuz he is a family man but it is all mind games and that only last so long. He is only there for the kids, there relationship is HISTORY just waiting for that wonderful day!!
She is not perfect, she is not all that!!!

Interesting how she wants us to know they are not apart more then three days-(thats to let us know that 'No,brad is not seeing Jen again')
How long can a relationship based on lies last????

She is lucky to find true love, she is a romantic person by her self, that she never knew. Love is unselfish, honest, forgiven and understanding. Love last forever, until you get older. Both have no fear to face the future. Togetherness, help save a relationship. Being closer each day with your love ones, makes life exciting. We can always see them, so sweet and happy. We can read in their action and the looks in their eyes. This two are compatible in many sense of their being. All I can say to Brad and Angelina, enjoy life with your big family and we pray for your happiness in life.
