Angelina recently talked about Brad and the kids in the new issue of Parade. Angelina said that: “The children tie us together, but a relationship won’t hold if it’s only about kids. You must be really interested in each other and have a really wonderful, exciting time together. We do.”
“You also must be really interested in each other and have a really, really wonderful, exciting time together. We do. Brad and I love being together. We enjoy it. We need it, and we always find that special time. We stay connected. We talk about it. It’s very important”, the actress added.
The actress talks about the harmony and unity inside her family: ” If Brad and I are strong and happy, then our kids have happy parents, and that’s the best thing we can give them… Brad knows me completely, exactly as I am, every part of me. He loves me. The children love me. They know all my flaws and all my oddities. And they accept them. And so I can feel complete.”
Surely, the domestic responsibilities are shared with Brad, resulting their strong relationship: “He takes the kids to school; he visits me on set with the kids. I’m home for dinner, or I’m there for breakfast. We’re together all the time. We plan. Brad and I take time off between films to travel, have big experiences, do things together. That’s how we work it out,” she says.
Moreover, they don’t spent long times separated from their children: “There’s never a period when Brad and I are pulled apart. We are not separated for more than three days, ever. We stay really connected. We actually don’t go out much. It’s funny. We’re very homebound. We’re very much Mommy and Daddy in our pajamas.”
Angelina generally talks about love, and her love, particularly: “I feel sad for someone who has never known love. Love elevates,” . “You know, Brad would joke about me having this conversation about love. Love? It’s such a funny word. Brad can find certain phrases of poetry for it. I’m terrible at it. But I know it means wanting the best for the people you love, putting their interests above your own, always. Love does that. Love is what you live for.”
She also talks about her tumultuous life in the past: “I used to cut myself or jump out of airplanes, trying to find something new to push up against because sometimes everything else felt too easy. I was searching for something deeper, something more. I tried everything. I always felt caged, closed in, like I was punching at things that weren’t there. I always had too much energy for the room I was in.”
Angelina specifically talks about one of her 13 tattoos: “The wild heart caged. I unlocked my cage years ago. I want my children to have that freedom. I want that for other people, too.”
