For the first time, Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie broke her silence regarding her divorce from husband, actor Brad Pitt. News of their separation broke last September. The two were together for 12 years and have six children.
In an interview with BBC World News, Angelina turned emotional when asked about the separation. She said, “Only that I don’t want to say very much about that except to say it was a very difficult time. 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.”
According to Angelina, she is focused on their children and in, “Finding this way through.”
“We are and forever will be a family. And so that is how I’m coping. I am coping with finding a way through to make sure that this somehow makes us stronger and closer.”
Five years from now, Angelina said that she wants to see herself travelling around the world, visiting her children. She said she hope they will be happy and doing interesting things.
“In everything I do, I hope I represent something and I represent the right things to my children and give them the right sense of what they’re capable of and the world as it should be seen, not through the prism of Hollywood or through a certain kind of life.”
Currently, Angelina, although she said that the past months have been difficult, began to lighten up as she shared, “Right now, I’m going through a moment when just everybody’s in my room. Two hamsters, two dogs and two children at the moment. It’s wonderful… 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.”
