Angelina Jolie is opening up about being a single mother of six.The “Maleficent” actress appeared on E!’s “Daily Pop” this week to discuss herupcoming film, “Those Who Wish Me Dead,” in which she dished on her life at home with her children.
“I have six very capable children,” the actress shared. “Of course you wake up and you just feel like, ‘I’ve got to make sure they’re OK. I’ve got to make sure they’re mentally OK,’ but honestly, I think a few years ago it switched and they’re thinking, ‘I’ve got to make sure mom’s OK.'”
“I’m always the one who worries but I don’t worry about them. They’re cool people,” she added. Jolie also briefly touched on her dating life, hinting that she’s not exactly sure what she’s looking for in a suitable partner. She did, however, joke that she’s aware of what she’s not hoping to find.
“I probably have a very long list [of dealbreakers,]” Jolie said, adding, “I’ve been alone for a long time now.” Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in September 2016 after two years of marriage and nearly 12 years together.
“I’ve been focusing on healing our family. It’s slowly coming back, like the ice melting and the blood returning to my body,” she said.
“I’m looking forward to my fifties – I feel that I’m gonna hit my stride in my fifties,” Jolie continued. “Though we were on the trampoline the other day, and the children said, ‘No, Mom, don’t do that.
You’ll hurt yourself.’ And I thought, ‘God, isn’t that funny?’ There was a day I was an action star, and now the kids are telling me to get off the trampoline because I’ll hurt myself.”
