Angelina Jolie (45, "Maleficent") revealed why she broke up with Brad Pitt (56, "Ad Astra"). The actress had filed for divorce in September 2016 after a twelve-year relationship – two of them married. And so far has hardly commented on this in public. In an interview with "Vogue India" Jolie said now: "I broke up for the good of my family. It was the right decision."
The 45-year-old added that she continues to focus on "healing" her children. "Some took advantage of my silence and the children saw lies about themselves in the media, but I remind them that they know their own truth and their own hearts. In fact, there are six very brave, very strong young people."
"A wonderful secret"
In the interview, Jolie also spoke about the different ways of becoming a mother: "It is important to speak and share openly about everything. 'Adoption' and 'Orphanage' are positive words in our house. I cannot talk to my adoptive children about them Speaking of pregnancy, but I speak in great detail and with love about the journey to them and what it was like to look into their eyes for the first time. "
She continued: "All adopted children bring a wonderful secret from a world that meets your own." Children should never lose touch with their roots, says Jolie. The actress and director has six children with Brad Pitt. The three adopt Maddox (18), Pax (16) and Zahara (15) as well as Shiloh (14) and the twins Vivienne and Knox (11).
