Angelina Jolie On “Difficult” Divorce, “Healing” With The Kids

angelina-jolie-vf-cover

Academy Award-winning actress Angelina Jolie covers the September issue of Vanity Fair and opens up about co-parenting her six children — Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and 9-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne — with estranged husband Brad Pitt.

On her split from Brad Pitt: “It’s just been the hardest time, and we’re just kind of coming up for air. [This house] is a big jump forward for us, and we’re all trying to do our best to heal as our family….things got bad…I don’t want to use that word…Things became ‘difficult.’”

On her kids: “[Our traveling lifestyle] was not in any way a negative. That was not the problem. That is and will remain one of the wonderful opportunities we are able to give our children…They’re six very strong-minded, thoughtful, worldly individuals. I’m very proud of them. [They’re] very brave…in times they needed to be. We’re all just healing from the events that led to the filing…They’re not healing from the divorce. They’re healing from some…from life, from things in life.”

On developing hypertension and Bell’s palsy: “I can’t tell if it’s menopause or if it’s just been the year I’ve had. Sometimes women in families put themselves last until it manifests itself in their own health. I actually feel like more of a woman because I’m being smart about my choices, and I’m putting my family first, and I’m in charge of my life and my health. I think that’s what makes a woman complete.”

On something Knox said to her: “He said, ‘Who wants to be normal? We’re not normal. Let’s never be normal.’ Thank you—yes! We’re not normal. Let’s embrace being not normal.”

On taking a break from work: “I’m just wanting to make the proper breakfast and keep the house. That’s my passion. At the request of my kids, I’m taking cooking classes. As I go to sleep at night, I think, Did I do a great job as a mom or was that an average day? I’ve been trying for nine months to be really good at just being a homemaker and picking up dog poop and cleaning dishes and reading bedtime stories. And I’m getting better at all three. But now I need to get my boots on and go hang, take a trip.”

Gwyneth Paltrow & Apple: Sunset Pose

Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow posted an idyllic image with daughter Apple, 13, via Instagram Wednesday.

While striking a sunset pose at the beach, the Iron Man actress, 44, hashtagged the mother-daughter photo with an apple.

Last month, the mom-of-two said she broke her foot while packing for her 11-year-old son Moses.

“I was rushing around my house and I was trying to pack my son for a fifth grade retreat, and I collided with the sofa,” she shared, adding that she’s broken her toes around eight or 10 times. “I don’t know what is wrong with me!”

She added: “I gotta stop this toe-breaking thing!”

The Sliding Doors actress – who raises her two children with ex-husband Chris Martin – also dished on her lifestyle brand Goop.

“One of the things we like to do on Goop is find what the alternative world says about feeling good in the modern-day world,” she shared. “So, earthing—I don’t actually know that much about earthing. It came out of me not knowing anything about earthing but hearing about it. They say that we lost touch with sort of being barefoot in the earth, and there’s some sort of electromagnetic thing that we’re missing. It’s good to take your shoes off in the grass.”

She then joked, “I don’t know what the f–k we talk about!”

When asked if she’ll be sending the kids to summer camp, the actress replied, “No, I like them!”

She added: “My parents would send me for eight weeks to camp, so if you want to know why I have so many issues…I actually loved camp. I went to a great camp in Vermont on Lake Champlain. It was an all-girls camp called Brown Ledge. It was riding and theater and water skiing and it was fantastic. I loved it.”

Momlife!

During a Monday appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow said she broke her foot while packing for her 11-year-old son Moses.

“I was rushing around my house and I was trying to pack my son for a fifth grade retreat, and I collided with the sofa,” she shared, adding that she’s broken her toes around eight or 10 times. “I don’t know what is wrong with me!”

She added: “I gotta stop this toe-breaking thing!”

The Iron Man actress – who is also mom to 13-year-old daughter Apple with ex-husband Chris Martin – also dished on her lifestyle brand Goop.

“One of the things we like to do on Goop is find what the alternative world says about feeling good in the modern-day world,” she shared. “So, earthing—I don’t actually know that much about earthing. It came out of me not knowing anything about earthing but hearing about it. They say that we lost touch with sort of being barefoot in the earth, and there’s some sort of electromagnetic thing that we’re missing. It’s good to take your shoes off in the grass.”

Sensing Kimmel wasn’t understanding, she joked, “I don’t know what the f–k we talk about!”

When Kimmel asked if she’ll be sending the kids to summer camp, the actress replied, “No, I like them!”

She added: “My parents would send me for eight weeks to camp, so if you want to know why I have so many issues…I actually loved camp. I went to a great camp in Vermont on Lake Champlain. It was an all-girls camp called Brown Ledge. It was riding and theater and water skiing and it was fantastic. I loved it.”

When Kimmel joked that camp is a good place to start smoking, the actress confirmed his theory.

“My first summer, I was 13,” she shared, “and I think I came back like a pack of Camel Lights a day.”
