Angelina Jolie on Brad Pitt: “He is a real man’s man”

In a recent interview with The Telegraph, the star has again paid tribute to her partner, whose film Tree of Life was recently awarded the Palme d’Or at Cannes.

“I am very lucky with Brad,” Jolie gushes. “He is a real gentleman, but he is also a real man’s man.”

Angelina explains: “He’s got the wonderful balance of being an extraordinary, great, loving father, a very, very intelligent man and physically he’s a real man…in all things that it means.”

“I love being a woman,” she continued. “I love that I can have children. I love feeling soft, I love being with Brad, I love all the sensitivity and natural emotion.”

It’s not without blushing that Angelina made these statements, which follow that of Brad Pitt, who said that they are considering marriage due to pressure from their six kids who want to see mum and dad as husband and wife.

As for how she and Pitt decided to have such a large brood of children, she commented: “When Brad and I decided to have a large family we decided we’d only do it if we could be really hands-on and take the kids with us, seeing them every day. “I am always there on weekends, I only ever work a five-day week, and I am often there for breakfast or dinner. When I’m working they come up at lunch.”

However, the almost 36-year-old actress doesn’t confide as much as Brad, 47, and simply states that, “We are obviously extremely committed to the children and as parents together.”

Jolie, who is currently featured in Kung Fu Panda 2, an animated film in which she lends her voice to the tigress, will soon begin filming a new movie by David Fincher (The Social Network), based on the life of the famous Egyptian queen, Cleopatra.

“She has been very misunderstood,” she said. “I thought it was all about the glamour, but then I read about her and she was a very strong mother, she spoke five languages and she was a leader.”
