Angelina Jolie: “I’m The Person Who Takes The Kids To Go Poop.”
“The great thing about having a bunch of kids is they just remind you that you’re the person who takes them to go poop!”[TotalFilm]
Here’s a confession that will destroy any romantic image you may have of the reclusive Angelina Jolie: she is the one on poop patrol at home. Jolie reveals to TotalFilm.com that her lifestyle is decidedly unglamorous, despite having been in the spotlight for most of her life and the fact that she is engaged to Brad Pitt. We expect this kind of false modesty from a lot of Hollywood bigwigs who really live large, but the woman who once wore her husband’s blood in a vial around her neck? Hmmm. I miss the crazy goth chick who used to make out with her brother on the red carpet.
She also discusses what compelled her to direct her first feature film, In the Land of Blood and Honey: “I didn’t set out to ever become a director or write a script. I was never intending to make a film. I’ve been traveling for over 10 years to these conflict and post-conflict zones, and thinking about what happens to people when they live inside these situations, and how their humanity is just stripped apart … So I wanted to have a meditation on what this is and how people who are neighbours can turn against each other.”
