An Emotional Angelina Jolie Admits That Brad Pitt Is a Wonderful Father, Saying She’s Determined To Make Her Family Healthier

Angelina Jolie opened up about her split from Brad Pitt in a new interview, admitting that the actor is a ‘wonderful’ father to their six children.

The actress and director spoke with George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America Tuesday morning to promote her new film ‘First They Killed My Father,’ and was asked by the anchor if she still believed the words she had used to describe her ex as a parent in an interview from years back.

‘Of course,’ said Jolie, who then added: ‘We will always be a family. Always.’

Jolie, 41, filed for divorce citing the ‘health’ of her family back in September after Pitt and oldest son Maddox were involved in some sort of skirmish on the family’s private plane.

The incident was later investigated by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, who determined there was no reason to press any charges or keep Pitt from seeing his children.

Jolie also got emotional at one point when asked about the health of her family in the five months since she made the decision to file for divorce.

‘We are … we are focusing on the health of our family. And so we will be [healthier],’ said Jolie. ‘We will be stronger when we come out of this, because that’s what we’re determined to do. ‘

Jolie spent part of the interview speaking about her six children with Pitt, including son Maddox who was adopted from Cambodia, the country where she filmed her new movie.

The film, which Jolie directed, is about the 1.7million Cambodians who are believed to have been killed under the Khmer Rogue and Pol Pot, the leader of the country’s Communist party.

Some believe as many as 3million may have been killed under the dictatorship, which came to power in 1963 and committed mass genocide a decade later.

Close to a quarter of the population died, and as Jolie explained everyone in the country was affected as a result.

That is why she wanted to work with Maddox on the picture.
‘I don’t know much of my child’s birth parents but I believe they would have gone through this war,’ said Jolie.

‘I wanted to understand him and his culture in a deeper way and I wanted to bring this story to this country in their language.’

And Maddox was with her every step of the way she told Stephanopoulos.

‘I talked to Maddox about this film and about doing it, and it was him in the final hour who said he was ready, and that he wanted to understand more, and that he wanted to work on it, and he wanted me to make it,’ said Jolie.

‘Being with him on set and studying the history of this country with him and being with his people was extraordinary.’

She also added that her son Pax worked on the film as well doing the ‘still photography.’

The 52-year-old actor appeared to be in better spirits than ever as he answered questions about the new WWII drama – after taking endless selfies with adoring fans on the red carpet.

The hunky actor was sure to give back to his fans from the other side of the world, as he spent a long amount of time chatting and taking selfies with them on the red carpet.

Known for being a heartthrob from his youth, Brad looked handsome as ever in his stylish all-black outfit – proving he has only got better with age.

The star dressed in an incredibly dapper black three-piece suit, formed of perfectly tailored trousers and a clean cut blazer.

Keeping the look toned down, he opted for a matching black shirt underneath and layered a casually stylish scarf on top.

Brad tied his look together with smart patent black brogues, to maintain the slick and suave feel throughout.

Brad announced he was separating from long-term partner Angelina Jolie as promotional proceedings for the film were kicking off – which caused speculation of an affair between him and the French actress to swirl.

However Marion took to her Instagram page in a rare post to staunchly confirm that such a romance did not take place.

She wrote: ‘This is going to be my first and only reaction to the whirlwind news that broke 24 hours ago and that I was swept up into.

‘I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up’.

She went on: ‘Many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need.’

Angelina, who has six children with partner-of-12-years Brad, filed for divorce the day after an alleged altercation on a plane between Brad and their eldest son Maddox.

He told E! News of the difficult few months on Wednesday: ‘It’s really sweet, everyone has been really kind out here. It’s really nice to have all the support.’

‘We Don’t Need To Be Mothers To Be Complete’: Jennifer Aniston Reveals That She’s ‘Fed Up’ With ‘Absurd’ Scrutiny Of Women

Jennifer Aniston has written an op-ed piece directly addressing the constant media speculation about whether she and her husband Justin Theroux intend to start a family.

‘We are complete with or without a mate, with or without a child. We don’t need to be married or mothers to be complete. We get to determine our own “happily ever after” for ourselves.” ‘wrote the 47-year-old in her piece for The Huffington Post.

The former Friends star, who found fame as Rachel Green, said the constant scrutiny in which she finds herself – particularly over the past month – shows how wider society perceives women.

JENNIFER-A6

It ‘has illuminated for me how much we define a woman’s value based on her marital and maternal status…(and) points to the perpetuation of this notion that women are somehow incomplete, unsuccessful, or unhappy if they’re not married with children,’ Aniston wrote.

She went on: ‘Yes, I may become a mother some day, and since I’m laying it all out there, if I ever do, I will be the first to let you know. But I’m not in pursuit of motherhood because I feel incomplete in some way.’

‘I resent being made to feel “less than” because my body is changing and/or I had a burger for lunch and was photographed from a weird angle and therefore deemed one of two things: “pregnant” or “fat.”’

JENNIFER-HUBBY

The Hollywood star, who was previously married to Brad Pitt, added: ‘The objectification and scrutiny we put women through is absurd and disturbing.’

‘The message that girls are not pretty unless they’re incredibly thin, that they’re not worthy of our attention unless they look like a supermodel or an actress on the cover of a magazine is something we’re all willingly buying into. This conditioning is something girls then carry into womanhood.’

The usually svelte Aniston was photographed in a bikini with a seemingly bigger tummy during a vacation in The Bahamas last month with second husband Theroux. Her publicist tried to quash pregnancy rumors by stating the actress had just enjoyed ‘a delicious big lunch.’

As one of the most photographed and talked about celebrities in the world, she has managed to secure a number of commercial endorsement deals based around her image and the way she looks.

Cashing in: The actress has used her appearance to win lucrative endorsement deals selling bottled water, beauty products and most recently an airline

A Secret of Love
“My wife got sick. She was constantly nervous because of problems at work, personal life, her failures and problems with children. She has lost 30 pounds and weighted about 90 pounds in her 35 years. She got very skinny, and was constantly crying. She was not a happy woman. She had suffered from continuing headaches, heart pain and jammed nerves in her back and ribs. She did not sleep well, falling asleep only in the morning and got tired very quickly during the day. Our relationship was on the verge of break up. Her beauty was leaving her somewhere, she had bags under her eyes, she was poking her head, and stopped taking care of herself. She refused to shoot the films and rejected any role. I lost hope and thought that we’ll get divorced soon … But then I decided to act on it. After all I’ve got the most beautiful woman on the earth. She is the ideal of more than half of men and women on earth, and I was the one allowed to fall asleep next to her and to hug her shoulders. I began to pepper her with flowers, kisses and compliments. I surprised her and pleased every minute. I gave her lots of gifts and lived just for her. I spoke in public only about her. I incorporated all themes in her direction. I praised her in front of her own and our mutual friends. You won’t believe, but she has blossomed. She became even better than before. She gained weight, was no longer nervous and she loved me even more than ever. I had no clue that she CAN love that much. And then I realized one thing: “The woman is the reflection of her man”

Inside Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s secret wedding

In stark contrast to the Kimye wedding circus, Brangelina married in secret last week.

In fact, despite being one of the world’s most famous couples, they managed to keep their nuptials private for almost a week.

So private that, along with the rest of the world, Jolie’s father, Jon Voight, didn’t know they had taken place.

“That’s nice,” Voight said when America’s Inside Edition broke the news to him.

In a separate statement to E!, the 75-year-old actor said: “It sounds like it was a wonderful wedding. It must have been very beautiful with the kids participating. I know it was during Emmy weeks and they were able to do it very quietly. I’m very happy for them.”

Last night a spokesperson for the couple confirmed that, last Saturday, they tied the knot at a small chapel on the grounds of their wine chateau in the South of France.
