Angelina Jolie opened up about her ex-husband Brad Pitt in a new, revealing interview.
While appearing on the cover of the December/January issue of Harper’s Bazaar, the “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” star shared her desire to live outside of the United States. However, she can only do so when her children with the actor are old enough.
“I would love to live abroad and will do so as soon as my children are 18,” the 44-year-old explained. “Right now I’m having to base where their father chooses to live.”
After they separated in September 2016, the pair engaged in a nasty custody battle over their kids: 18-year-old Maddox, 15-year-old Pax, 14-year-old Zahara, 13-year-old Shiloh, and 11-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. They eventually reached an agreement in November 2018.
When asked by the publication how she deals with constantly being misunderstood, the humanitarian recounted a story of getting a tattoo with her mom.
“I have a tattoo, ‘A prayer for the wild at heart kept in cages.’ I got it when I was 20. I was with my mom one evening, and I was feeling lost. I was restless — always. I still am,” she recalled. “We were driving to dinner, and she talked about spending time with Tennessee Williams and how much she loved his words. She told me he wrote that, about the wild at heart. We drove to a tattoo parlor, and I got it inked on my left arm. What she did for me that night was to remind me that the wild within me is all right and a part of me.”
For the new year, Jolie’s wish is for people to become their authentic selves, and “fight past whatever is oppressing you.”
“My dream for everyone in 2020 is to remember who they are and to be who they are regardless of what might be disrupting their ability to be free,” she said. “If you feel you are not living your life fully, try to identify what it is or who it is that is blocking you from breathing. Identify and fight past whatever is oppressing you. That takes many forms, and it is going to be a different fight for everyone.”
Great words of wisdom from Angelina.
