Angelina Jolie explains why she doesn’t have many girlfriends

In an interview with Marie Claire, whose cover she graces in a blue top and gold statement ring, the 36-year-old confides about her lack of female friends.

“It was nice for me to play with other girls; I don’t really have girlfriends in movies, if you’ve noticed,” she said.

“Well, I have a few girlfriends, I just… I stay at home a lot. I’m just not very social. I don’t do a lot with them, and I’m very homebound.”

Jolie admits though that she does have one person she can confide in, her long-time lover and father of her children, actor Brad Pitt.

“I’ll talk to my family,” she said, “I talk to Brad … But I don’t know, I don’t have a lot of friends I talk to. He is really the only person I talk to.”

But Jolie still holds dear a close friend: singer Gwen Stefani with whom she has been friends since 1998.

“Somehow Gwen and I keep ending up pregnant at the exact same time,” Jolie has said.

But Angelina expressed willingness to stop acting in order to concentrate on other things.

“I woke up one day realizing, God, I’m an actor,” she said, “I don’t think I intended to be an actor. I think my mother wanted it for me. I loved telling stories, and I enjoyed the profession, but is it too late to be something else?”

As for welcoming new additions to their brood of six, Angelina said: “Nothing planned at the moment, but we just don’t know. I could end up pregnant.”

Jolie couldn’t avoid the subject of her children wanting her and Brad, 47, to tie the knot.

“They have mentioned it, yes,” she admitted.

“Brad has expanded my life in ways I never imagined. We built a family. He is not just the love of my life, he is my family. I hold that very dear. I suppose what I’ve learned from Brad is to be able to have the kind of family whose happiness and well-being comes before your own. I’m very, very grateful to have such a loving family, and I wouldn’t have that without him.”

In addition, the actress gushed about the developing personalities of her six children.

Regarding her youngest daughter Vivienne, she shared: “She is so elegant and delicate. Vivi will pick flowers from the garden and put them in her hair. She likes to get her nails done and collects stuffed animals.”

She added: “It’s very funny for me to have to buy all things pink and watch princess movies!”

However,”Knox ‘is very much a dude. Very physical, tough. He loves dinosaurs and swords.”
