Celebrity Applause- Angelina Jolie Shows Her Vulnerable Side

30 Nov


Although Angelina Jolie is a stunning actress, activist and mother with a directorial debut later this year, she wasn’t always so sure she’d come out on top.  Her back up plan if she didn’t make it in Hollywood was actually quite unusual for such a beautiful gal…Funeral Director…!

“It sounds like this very strange, eccentric, dark thing to do but in fact I lost my grandfather and was very upset with his funeral,” she told Bob Simon in a recent “60 Minutes” interview. “How somebody passes and how family deals with this passing and what death is should be addressed in a different way. If this whole acting thing didn’t work out that was
going to be my path.”

Throughout the interview , Jolie now 36, spoke about her relationship with Brad Pitt taming her dark side.  “I’m still a bad girl,” she said. “I still have that side of me…it’s just in its place now…it belongs to Brad or our adventures.”

Angelina also made it very clear how lucky she is to have gotten past her dark phase.  “I went through heavy, darker times and I survived them,” she said. “I didn’t die young.  So I am very lucky.  There are other artists and people that didn’t survive certain things.”

Angelina’s mother, Marcheline Bertrand, was her inspiration.  She also credits her kids, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne, as a major source of normalcy in her otherwise chaotic life.  Through tearing eyes, Angelia said, “My mother was a full-time mother.
She didn’t have much of her own career, her own life, her own experiences…everything was for her children.
  I will never be as good a mother as she was.  She was just grace incarnate.  She was the most generous, loving – she’s better than me.”

This interview was very touching and allows you to see the softer more real side of Angelina Jolie.  She too walks with grace like her mother.  She has come full circle since she started her path in Hollywood and BSW is loving this beauty inside and out!
