Mother of six Angelina Jolie, who turned 43 this year, embraces getting older. “Wisdom, understanding, clarity of thought – all the things that come with age are also beautiful and feminine qualities. “I’d like to think we all get better with age – men and women.” Looking in the mirror these days, Angelina says she sees her mother Marcheline Bertrand looking back, which “warms her”. An actress and humanitarian like her daughter, Marcheline, who died from ovarian cancer in 2007, is the reason Angelina was drawn to fragrance house Guerlain.
Before being unveiled as the face of its new perfume Mon Guerlain last year, the Oscar-winning actress hadn’t appeared in a beauty campaign for ten years, but when chief executive Laurent Boillot flew out to Cambodia to discuss the opportunity, Angelina was reminded of her mother’s love of a particular Guerlain face powder. “She hardly ever wore make-up, but she saved this powder for special occasions,” she tells us. “I grew up thinking of Guerlain as this very fancy French brand.” Having directed last year’s Golden Globe and Bafta-nominated First They Killed My Father, Angelina returned to acting this year, voicing one of the characters in Disney’s The One and Only Ivan and filming Maleficent 2 in the UK. HELLO! caught up with her ahead of the launch of a eau de toilette version of Mon Guerlain to find out more about the new fragrance and how the brand is paying tribute to her mother.

Hello (Georgia) – April 2018
On the surface she is a superwoman, but even a Hollywood mom is vulnerable. In an exclusive interview with Mama, Angelina Jolie tells about life as a single parent, the divorce of Brad Pitt, about the operations and about having a heart bleeding for a burning world.
It’s easy to believe that Angelina Jolie is a super woman. She is one of Hollywood’s best-paid actors, she has a flourishing career as a producer, scriptwriter and director and she puts both the strength and the money to make the world a better place. In addition, she is a mother of no less than six (!) Children.
But everything is not as perfect as it looks on the surface, she tells when Mama’s Tina Jøhnk Christensen meets her during the filming of the Disney film “Maleficent 2” in London. Even a superwoman puzzles and struggles to make life go together.
“I do not think it’s easy for any woman to catch up with both family, work and herself. The most important thing for me has been to try to prioritize. At the top of the list are the children always. Their happiness and health are always the most important. I try to build their self-esteem so that they become six strong individuals, who are humble and thoughtful at the same time.
