At a Changeling press conference Monday in London, Angelina Jolie got teary eyed talking about her late mother Marcheline Bertrand, who died of cancer in 2007.
After being asked what it meant to film a movie about a strong mother so soon after Marcheline Bertrand’s death, Angelina cursed and her eyes filled with tears.
“She was really sweet and was never angry – she couldn’t swear to save her life,” she said. “But when it came to her kids, she was really fierce and so this is very much her, her story.
“She was the woman I related to, who had that elegance and strength through just knowing what was right,” she continued.
Angelina – who also confirmed Monday that she will replace Tom Cruise in Edwin A. Salt – also opened up her recent comments that she wants to “fade away” from acting.
“I’m not making some retirement announcement,” she said. “I have a big family and a lot of responsibility at home, and I have the good fortune to financially not have to work all the time.
“I just feel privileged that I get to be home a lot,” she said. “Maybe eventually I’ll stop [acting].”
After a reporter asked, “Can we expect more children soon?” Angelina replied, “Sure, you can!”
She added that she spent the past year “with the kids. Most of it has been spent in my pajamas coloring.”
