Miss Angie is here to serve you some world class muthafuckin FACE.
“Maleficent” star Angelina Jolie covers the June 2014 issue of ELLE magazine in Saint Laurent photographed by Hedi Slimane.
On what she used to think her life would be like: “I never thought I’d have children, I never thought I’d be in love, I never thought I’d meet the right person,” Jolie says. “Having come from a broken home—you kind of accept that certain things feel like a fairy tale, and you just don’t look for them.”
On how her relationship with Pitt has evolved over the past eight years: “You get together and you’re two individuals and you feel inspired by each other, you challenge each other, you complement each other, drive each other beautifully crazy. After all these years, we have history—and when you have history with somebody, you’re friends in such a very real, deep way that there’s such a comfort, and an ease, and a deep love that comes from having been through quite a lot together.”
On casting her daughter Vivienne in “Maleficent”: and how she and Pitt feel about the kids getting into show business: “For young Aurora, they needed a child who wouldn’t be fazed by the Mistress of All Evil hissing “I don’t like children” in her face. “And my little Vivienne—we call her my shadow, because there’s nothing I can do to shake her. I can be tired, I can be grumpy, I can be in a terrible mood, and she doesn’t care. [...] Brad and I made the decision that we wouldn’t keep them from sets and the fun of making movies, but we wouldn’t [glorify it either]—we wouldn’t make it a good thing or a bad thing. But I would really prefer they do something else,” she says. Anyway, “after two days of it, Brad and I were so stressed we never wanted to do it again.”
She’s never been good at fashion modeling, but she doesn’t need to be. She’s what the camera is here for, not what she’s wearing. That’s the difference between a star and a model. And it’s why we don’t have many supermodels anymore too.
Granted, these outfits couldn’t possibly be any more generic. But then again, why bother putting her in something frou-frou? It’s all about the face with this one.
Oh, and we’re calling it now: half their kids will be in show business by 2025.
