Jolie not only starred for the cover and fashion photo shoot, but also gave an interview, in which she spoke in particular about plans to move from the United States. We publish the most interesting quotes.
My children know the real me, and they periodically help me return to myself. They have experienced a lot, and I constantly admire their inner strength and take an example from them.
I do not feel deprived of something. As a teenager, I constantly focused on what I don’t have. When I began to actively travel – I was 20 and a little, I suddenly realized how free I am in my actions and in life compared to many people in this world. For example, my childhood was free from war. Since then, every time I remember that I have freedom in creating a family, in creativity, and in general I can be myself. This is one of the reasons why I help girls in different countries. Seeing someone – especially young girls with so much potential – deprived of their freedom, is unbearable for me.
About the reasons for buying a house in Cambodia:
When you have such an active thought process as mine, you just need to periodically leave for a place that can calm you down. I found this state in the desert and in the jungle of Cambodia. When I first came to this country, it seemed to me that its inhabitants, who had survived so many wars and suffered so much suffering, should be embittered, but in reality – the opposite is true. They are filled with gratitude, full of life. This is the house and headquarters for my foundation, but I had to make a lot of efforts for this: for example, we found and neutralized about 50 minutes before we could live there.
About favorite places in the world and home in Africa:
My favorite place is where I have not been. I like to rush headlong into the unknown. I like to fall out of my comfort zone. I want the children to grow up in this world – not just know something about it, but live in it and have friends from all over the world. Next year we will build a house in Africa.
About moving to another country:
I would like to live abroad and I will definitely do it as soon as my children turn 18. Right now I have to live where their father lives.
