Jolie even added that she’s hoping that they’ll become a stronger family after this. This goes to show how Jolie seems to be coping well despite the tears and rumors of her breaking down from the split.
Her Focus At The Moment
Kids. Jolie’s priorities are her kids. Along with the interview, Jolie added that her focus at the moment is her six kids namely Maddox (15), Pax (13), Zahara (11), Shiloh (10) and her youngest twins Vivienne and Knox (8).
Furthermore, Jolie said that after filing for divorce, she and her children and pets have been finding a “normal rhythm”.
Jolie shared in the interview how she’s too busy figuring things out at the moment such as who brushed their teeth and who took the pets out. It’s stuff like this that keeps her busy and pre-occupied. Nevertheless, Jolie thinks it’s “wonderful”.
She was also asked where she saw her life five years from now and she answered how the house would be filled with teenagers by that time. She shared that she would like to travel around and visit her children. Jolie added that she just hopes her kids are happy doing interesting things and that she’ll be supporting them.
It’s inspiring to know that Angelina Jolie wants her children to become “rounded people” by immersing them in what goes on in the world. In her words, Jolie said that she hopes that everything she does represents the right things for her kids so they have the right sense of what they can be capable of someday.
