You must check out the new Vanity Fair with Angelina Jolie on the cover. There’s loads of scoop in there on all things Angelina — from her rumoured pregnancy (“No, I’m not pregnant”) to Brad’s scraggly goatee (“I love Brad in every state”). The interview took place on the set of her new movie in Venice, Italy….
Here are some of the more juicy bits of the interview:
Will Angelina and Brad have more children in the future?
We’re not opposed to it. But we want to make sure we can give everybody special time. They’re kids now, and can play together, but they’re going to need a lot more talking in the middle of the night, like I did with my mom for hours. We want to make sure we don’t build a family so big that we don’t have absolutely enough time to raise them each really well.
While they’re “not against marriage,” will she and Brad ever get married?
It’s just like we already are. Children are clearly a commitment, a bigger commitment [than marriage]. It’s for life.
Why Angelina won’t keep working much longer….
Because I have a happy home….I got back from work last night, and everybody was playing music and dancing and I suddenly found myself dancing around with a bunch of little fun crazy people.
On Maddox, Zahara, Knox and Viv, and Shiloh….
Mad’s a real intellectual, which I can take no credit for genetically. He’s great at school, great at history. He feels like he could be a writer or travel the world and learn about places and things. Zahara’s got an extraordinary voice and is just so elegant and well spoken. Shiloh’s hysterically funny, one of the goofiest, most playful people you’ll ever meet. Knox and Viv are classic boy and girl. She’s really female. And he’s really a little dude.
Why Angelina is most like Shiloh….
Goofy and verbal, the early signs of a performer…. I used to get dressed up in costumes and jump around. But at some point, I got closed off, darker. I don’t remember anything happening. I think you just get hit with the realities of certain things in life, think too much, start to realize the world isn’t as you wished it would be, so you deepen. Then, as I had kids and got older—being goofy, lighter—it all came back.
On Shiloh dressing like a boy….
She likes to dress like a boy. She wants to be a boy…. So, we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers.
Read more excerpts here. But I guess we’ll have to wait until the issue’s in stores (June 30) to see if Pax made it into the final edit. Poor guy….
