Angelina Jolie graces the cover of UK Harper's Bazaar December issue.  The accompanying interview is titled Angelina Up Close and will be available on stands Thursday.  In it she says: "I am still at heart, and always will be, just a punk kid with tattoos.  I don't walk around feeling I need to apologize or explain myself."

The actress has been jet setting within the past few weeks, arriving first in New York for the premiere and promotional work for her latest movie Changeling, including an interview with Matt Lauer of The Today Show.

Her partner Brad Pitt traveled to New York with Angie and their six pack of kids.   He attended the Changeling premiere red carpet affair with his partner Angelina.   While the family was in NYC, an expose of personal family photographs, including some of the actress breastfeeding one of her newborn twins, appeared in W magazine.  They were shot by Pitt at their leased home, Chateau Miraval, in the south of France.

There have also been plenty of family sightings as well.  Check out the kid pics here.   Pitt returned to Berlin ahead of the rest of the family because he is filming a Quentin Tarantino film, Inglorious Bastards.

Angelina made a quick trip alone, traveling to Afghanistan as part of her duties as a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador.  The group have reunited in Berlin, where they will reside until Pitt is finished filming.
