Angelina Jolie and Loung Ung also went to a private screening of First They Killed My Father in New York yesterday. There was a Q&A afterwards and a few pics have been released from the actual event but we will try and get more!
They also let some kids interview Angelina, Loung Ung and Rithy Panh and the interview is really cute and makes it different to all the other interviews, really cute 🙂
Some excerpts from the magazine interview and we will try and get scans:
“I have had my ups and downs. I guess I am a little bit stronger,” the actress, director and philanthropist tells PEOPLE exclusively in an interview for the magazine’s new cover story. “We all have our difficult times, but as a mother you also have a responsibility first and foremost towards the kids. They are going through their formative years and everything else comes second to that.”
“Everything will be around the children,” she says. “I haven’t worked for over a year now because they needed me home. Everything was just stopped. I’m really sitting and talking with them because everything affects them. Every location, every type of project, I’m going to have to adjust it to however much they can handle.”
She’s very proud that Maddox and Pax got involved behind the scenes on First They Killed My Father. The movie grew from her longtime love for Cambodia, where she adopted Maddox in 2002 and where she has done humanitarian work for 14 years, establishing a foundation in Maddox’s name that helps local communities with education, health and more. “I wanted Maddox to see how extraordinary his country is,” she says of the movie.
Though they are still healing from the last year, the star says her family is out of “lockdown” and ready for new adventures.
“I think they’re itching to get out in the world again,” says Jolie. “We’ve all been a bit in lockdown and going through some things. I think it would be good to get out there and play together.”
The New York Times has released the interview they made with Angelina on August 25 and she will appear in next issue. We will try and get scans for you!
The photoshoot has been replaced with HQ versions, view in gallery!
Angelina Jolie was sitting barefoot on the porch of her luscious new home, explaining why she wants to save the world, when duty called. Her youngest son, Knox, 9, poked his little blond head around the screen door.
“Shiloh needs you,” the boy said quietly, referring to his middle sister, who is 11.
“Shi?” Ms. Jolie called, before disappearing with a whoosh of her black caftan. Ten minutes later, she was back. Shiloh’s beloved bearded dragon, Vlad, had fallen ill and was now, to Shiloh’s distress, convalescing at the vet’s. “That will be the rest of my day,” Ms. Jolie said, settling into a cushioned patio chair, “learning all about the health issues of the bearded dragon.”
