  • As the actress graces the latest Vanity Fair cover, she gives one of her most candid interviews to date, and reveals that retirement could be just around the corner

    There’s just something about Angelina Jolie that we find utterly fascinating…

    In an unusually open interview with Vanity Fair magazine, the A-list actress says she hasn’t ruled out adding to her ever-expanding brood.


    No I’m not pregnant,’ she quickly confirms. ‘We’re not opposed to it, but we want to make sure we can give everybody special time.’

    ‘They’re kids now, and can play together, but they’re going to need a lot more talking in the middle of the night, like I did with my mom for hours. We want to make sure we don’t build a family so big that we don’t have absolutely enough time to raise them each really well.’

    She also admits that tying the knot with Brad Pitt isn’t completely off the cards…

    ‘[We’re not] against getting married,’ she says. ‘It’s just like we already are. Children are clearly a commitment. A bigger commitment. It’s for life.’

    Ange also opens up about each of her children, describing how each of them is completely different from their siblings.

    Mad’s a real intellectual, which I can take no credit for genetically. He’s great at school, great at history,’ she starts.

    Zahara’s got an extraordinary voice, and is just so elegant and well spoken. Shiloh’s hysterically funny, one of the goofiest, most playful people you’ll ever meet.’

    ‘[Twins] Knox and Vivienne are classic boy and girl,’ she continues. ‘She’s really female, and he’s really a little dude.’

    But despite her stellar career going from strength-to-strength, Ange thinks retirement may be just around the corner.

    It’s not the most important thing in my life,’ she says. ‘I’m very, very grateful. It’s a fun job. It’s a luxury. Look, I’m at work today in the middle of Venice.’ (Where she’s currently filming with Johnny Depp, no less..)

    But I don’t think I’ll do it much longer.’
