For the first time since filing for divorce from Brad Pitt in September, Angelina Jolie has opened about it.
Speaking with BBC World News’ Yalda Hakim in Cambodia, where Jolie was promoting her new film First They Killed My Father, she said that, “I don’t want to say very much about that, except to say it was a very difficult time and… and we are a family and we will always be a family, and we will get through this time and hopefully be a stronger family for it.”
“My family… we’ve all being through a difficult time. My focus is my children, our children… and my focus is finding this way through. We are and forever will be a family. I am coping with finding a way through to make sure that this somehow makes us stronger and closer,” she continued.
“Right now, I’m going through a moment when just everybody’s in my room,” she said. “Two dogs, two hamsters and two children at the moment. It’s wonderful. But, usually, I just wake up trying to figure out who’s going to get [the] dog out, who’s going to start the pancakes and did anybody brush their teeth.”
When asked where she saw herself in five years, Jolie realised that she would be the mother of a bunch of teenagers by then. “In five years’ time I would like to be travelling around the world visiting my children, hoping that they’re just happy and doing really interesting things, and I imagine in many different parts of the world, and I’ll be supporting them.”
Jolie and Pitt separated in September after more than a decade long relationship, and spent several months embroiled in a bitter custody battle over their six children Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8.
