In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Angelina Jolie opened up about being a single mom since her split from Brad Pitt in 2016. Due to her family situation, Jolie has taken on fewer directing projects and instead focused on shorter acting jobs that allow her to be home more. She and Pitt share custody of their five children, while their eldest, Maddox, is now an adult. Despite their separation, the exes prioritize their children’s well-being and have continued regular visits during the pandemic.
According to the source, the children are managing their studies well and engaging in various activities such as practicing languages, playing musical instruments, playing board games, and assisting with meal preparation. As they are accustomed to studying at home, the transition has not been too challenging for them.
Before the pandemic, Angie and her children were present throughout the filming of the HBO Max movie. As per E! News’ report in 2019, they all stayed in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where they enjoyed themselves while Angie worked. The insider mentioned that they did similar activities in New Mexico to what they did in LA, such as going on multiple Target runs, eating out, and enjoying shopping. Moreover, Angie loved to spoil her kids with toys and sports equipment since she had to work a lot during that time. Her intention was to keep them busy and entertained while having fun.
In a recent interview with British Vogue, the actress who is 47 years old admitted that her family life is not conventional. She expressed how she feels that she lacks the skills to be a traditional stay-at-home mom. However, despite the unconventional lifestyle of her and her kids, Angelina feels better than ever. According to her, she believes that she will reach her peak in her 50s.
