Angelina Jolie – Fading Away

I was scanning the news when I came across a story about the famous actor Angelina Jolie. I was intrigued so I had to continue to scour the reports. Her parents were the famous Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand. She is an award winner, golden globe winner and U.N. Ambassador. My husband loves her and thinks she is the best thing since sliced bread. We have had so many arguments revolving around her and her perceived sex appeal among men…and maybe some women. Apparently, now she wants to spend less and less time acting and more time with her family. I do not blame her. Her family seems to be growing at an alarming rate! So far, they have six children. Maddox, Zahara and Pax were adopted from other countries and Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne are their biological children.

When asked about her career Angelina said, “I think it’s nice I’ve had a time to tell stories and be successful enough to tell the ones I want to tell and earn some money at the same time,” she said. “I don’t think I’ll ever say I’m never ever going to work, because maybe there’s that interesting project where I feel creative.” Anglelina doesn’t have a time line for retirement. She does plan to take a year off soon and then maybe more years in the near future…and then just fade away as she puts it. Angelina has had these feelings since the birth of her twins. She wants to make her kids her priority and spend as much time with them as possible. She has changed her ways as a high strung reckless young woman to a home body surronded by kids, pets and Brad Pitt of course!

It is refreshing to think that such a famous person is still down to earth enough to put her family first and to realize that they need their mother. She is obviously a hands on mother and doesn’t believe in letting the nanny take care of the children. As far as her belief that she can just fade into the shadows that is yet to be seen. Is the public ready to let her go? In interviews she is described as purposeful, relaxed and down to earth. She plans on spending more time working with charitable organizations and children. This is something that has truly changed her life and filled her spirit. Angelina says it has given her a purpose she never had before. She is obviously passionate about it, maybe even more then acting at this point in her life.

She hopes to not have to act later in her life. “Everything comes in seasons.” Angelina explains. I want to be a grandmother one day!” However, she has a lot of projects in the mix and so those will be her priority for a while. She is happy to have Brad and the fact that he is also a famous actor and can earn a fortuitous income for the family lets Angelina breathe a little easier. So whether Angelina fades away or not she is certainly going to remain busy and nurturing whether her own family or refugees.
