In an interview with Vogue for their November 2023 issue, Angelina Jolie opened up about how adopting her first son Maddox when she was 26 years old completely transformed her life. She shared that the experience taught her to live in a different way in this world. The cover of the magazine features Jolie in a stunning white strapless dress adorned with pink spray paint as she promotes her upcoming fashion venture called Atelier Jolie.
The latest issue of Vogue magazine features Angelina Jolie on its cover, and in an interview, the 48-year-old actress opened up about her life as a single mother and how becoming a mother “saved her” from a darker path. After her divorce from Brad Pitt, Jolie expressed how her six children became her motivation to move on and taught her to live differently in this world. She shared that her desire to live for her children has been her driving force, stating that she could have gone down a much darker path if not for them. Jolie became a mother when she was 26, and she revealed how her entire life changed after that.
In an interview, Jolie shared that she has been feeling down lately and hasn’t felt like herself for quite some time. She also discussed her new brand, Atelier Jolie, stating that her goal is not to become a famous fashion designer, but rather to create a platform for others to become designers. She hopes that this venture will help her make positive changes in her life and move forward towards her goals.
Angelina Jolie hopes that her fashion brand, Atelier Jolie, will inspire women to embrace their soft side and feel safe to do so. She believes that sometimes women dress in a way that suggests they are wearing armor and do not want to be messed with. However, Jolie wants women to always feel secure enough to express their vulnerability. Jolie herself struggled with this concept after experiencing something traumatic. A therapist suggested she try wearing floaty clothing, but she felt that pants and boots made her look stronger and tougher. It took time for her to realize that being vulnerable was also a sign of strength and that she now understands who she is at the age of 48.
The photo shoot captured the actress in various outfits, including a silky yellow dress paired with a dark cape that she subtly smirked in. One photo shows her engaging in conversation with collaborator Gabriela Hearst while wearing a black tank top and matching pants. Another picture depicts her standing alongside Helen Aboah, President and CEO of Atelier Jolie. The love story of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt began in 2005 while filming Mr. and Mrs. Smith, despite Pitt being in a marriage with Jennifer Aniston. Their relationship has always been controversial and ended in a bitter divorce.
The romantic entanglement between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, famously known as Brangelina, has piqued the interest of many. Despite the rumors of infidelity, their relationship seemed like a match made in heaven, making them Hollywood’s beloved couple for over a decade. In 2014, they tied the knot in a secret ceremony in the South of France and had three children together. Shiloh, who is now 17 years old, was born in 2006, and twins Vivienne and Knox, who are now 15 years old, were born in 2008. Furthermore, they adopted Zahara, who is 18 years old, and Pax, who is 19 years old. Additionally, before they became a couple, Pitt legally adopted Jolie’s son Maddox, who is now 22 years old.
The Jolie-Pitt clan used to have a great time together, until their relationship ended in 2016 following an alleged altercation on a private flight with their six children. According to Jolie, Pitt had “strangled” one of their children during a heated argument and “hit” another child in the face, leaving her and her children feeling scared and like “hostages” under a blanket for hours until landing. She also claims that Pitt had grabbed her head, slammed her against a wall, and violently shook her, causing injuries to her back and elbow. However, Pitt’s representative denies these allegations, stating that they are “completely false” and that Angelina’s story keeps changing every time she tells it. Despite their legal battle over custody of their children and the French winery they once owned together, Brad has accepted responsibility for his actions but will not take blame for what he did not do, and will continue to answer in court.
In May, following a long legal battle, Pitt and Jolie were granted joint custody of their six children. However, just a month later, the judge’s ruling was overturned.
