Angelina Jolie: Working on Films is a Break from Motherhood


Angelina Jolie is no saint, and mothers the world over are breathing a collective sigh of relief.

In a recent interview, Jolie says that being at work can be more relaxing than time spent at home with her brood of 6 rainbow children and 1 partner. Cue mothers around the world for another collective sigh of relief.

She told Britain’s Hello! Magazine (via ContactMusic):

“When me or Brad go away and work on films it gives us a bit of a break from the daily routine of being in the house and looking after the kids. You get spoiled on a film set, and in some ways it’s easier to be working long hours on a movie than taking care of a large family, just because you do get very tired at the end of the day.

“I felt that way especially after the twins were born, because the demands on your time are so great. It meant that Brad had to spend a lot more time with the other kids, because mommy was too busy or tired.

“I’m very grateful to be in a position where I can still work and enjoy that creative part of my life, and not feel like I’m neglecting my responsibilities as a mother. I also love having a man like Brad who enjoys looking after the kids the way he does, because it’s a lot of work.”

Girl just climbed the ladder even higher in my estimation with her honesty that combining motherhood and a career is exhausting. I wonder if she ever leaves the house with her knickers on back to front?
