Angelina Jolie Covers Vogue

Angelina Jolie, VogueAngelina Jolie covers the November 2015 issue of Vogue, where she is promoting her new film, By the Sea, which she directed and starred in.

On her kids educational experiences: “We travel often to Asia, Africa, Europe, where they were born. The boys [Maddox and Pax] know they’re from Southeast Asia, and they have their food and their music and their friends, and they have a pride particular to them. But I want them to be just as interested in the history of their sisters’ countries and mommy’s country so we don’t start dividing. Instead of taking Z on a special trip, we all go to Africa and we have a great time.”

On bringing Shiloh to Lebanon: “When she was sitting on the floor with her UN cap writing her notes as she was talking to someone, I was flashing on myself 15 years ago and thinking, I know that moment. The kids that don’t want to go don’t go.”

On directing First they Killed My Father: “It’s a very unusual film. There’s not a lot of dialogue. A child experiences more than she talks. I’ll be making it with the Cambodians every step of the way. I will feel the ghosts of a million people who died. It’s their story and their skulls in the ground. And that is a great responsibility.”

On Maddox’s involvement with the film: “The film will change Mad, but as much as he’s discovering the horrors of the past, he’ll also be discovering the culture before the war, the dignity of his country, how they held their heads up.”

On Pax meeting Aung San Suu Kyi: “Seeing Pax get extra-nervous about which shirt he is going to wear when he meets Aung San Suu Kyi, I get very moved. He rightfully doesn’t get nervous going to a movie premiere; he gets nervous going to meet her.”

On spending time with her children: “I schedule individual time with each of the kids like a crazy person. What a crazy job! I’m almost enjoying it more now that I see it as something I’ve been fortunate to be part of. Maybe in the next few years I’ll finish being in front of the camera. I’ll be happier behind it. I’m happy to be home. I want to really focus on my children, doing the best I can to guide and protect them before they are out of the house. These are their most important years.”

On her decision to go public with her health information: “[It] Really connected me to other women. I wish my mom had been able to make those choices… It’s hard. They are not easy surgeries. The ovaries are an easy surgery, but the hormone changes [laughs] interesting. We did joke that I had my Monday edit. Tuesday surgery. Wednesday go into menopause. Thursday come back to edit, a little funky with my steps.”

On having gone through menopause: “I feel grounded as a woman. I know others do too. Both of the women in my family, my mother and my grandmother started dying in their 40s. I’m 40. I can’t wait to hit 50 and know I made it.”

On By the Sea: “This is the only film I’ve done that is completely based on my own crazy mind. Brad and I have our issues. But if the characters were even remotely close to our problems, we couldn’t have made the film.”

On their decision to make By the Sea: “As artists we wanted something that took us out of our comfort zones. Just being raw actors. It’s not the safest idea. But life is short.”

On her mother dying of cancer at age 49: “My mother was an Earth Mother and the nicest person in the world. But the specific grief came from the woman I was closest to, seeing her art slip away, her body fail her.”
