Celebrity mom Angelina Jolie received an honorary Oscar this weekend. Angelina was the youngest woman to receive the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award. The actress gave special thanks to her mother, Brad Pitt and their children in her speech.
Angelina brought along Brad and their oldest son Maddox to the awards ceremony. She gushed to Maddox from the stage, “Mad, you and your brothers and sisters are my happiness and there is no greater honor than being your mom.”
She continued her tear-jerking speech, ”[My mother] was very clear that nothing would mean anything if you didn’t lead a life of use to others. I didn’t know what that meant for a long time. I came into this business young and worried about my own experiences and my own pain. To stand here today means I did as she asked. And if she were alive, she’d be very proud.”
