Angelina Jolie Is Entering A New Phase Of Life While Raising Teenagers
Angelina Jolie is one hell of a mom, but now that her kids are getting older she’s starting to realize how much more free time she has!
“When your children are little, you feel more ‘Mommy,’” she explained to Entertainment Tonight. “When they are teenagers, you start to remember yourself as a teenager. You see them going to punk clubs and you wonder why you can’t go. I’m in this fun moment where I’m rediscovering myself.”
Angelina and her ex-husband, Brad Pitt, share Maddox, 18, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 11.
Her children are all “strong individuals, but still open-minded,” she explained to ET.
“It’s important to be humble, know the freedoms you have and what you’ve been blessed with and make sure you help others,” she added. “And always remember your place. We’re all human and very flawed. We’re tiny pieces in a much bigger world.”
“I try to lead by example and be kind and gracious, as my mother was, and loving and tolerant. But when there’s a fight that needs to be had, [I] get in there.”
We love you, Angie!
