Angelina Jolie Opens Up About Her Split With Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie is a busy woman these days. She is currently filming a new marvel movie and promoting the highly-anticipated new movie "Maleficent: Mistress of Evil" globally, a movie in which she not only played the iconic lead role but also produced. The successful mum of six has finally opened up about her split from Brad Pitt in a recent interview with Madame Figaro on her recently released campaign for Guerlain fragrances. 

"I’m coming back to myself.  Because I was a little lost....I feel like I’m coming full-circle," said Angelina. "For this new Guerlain campaign, I asked myself:  what is expected of me?  And the answer was that I want to be who I’ve always been.  So instead of hiding my wild side, I’m bringing it out. I want to feel free.”

Angelina demonstrated remarkable composure following her decision to break away from her decade long relationship with Brad Pitt. The startlet threw herself into filling her days with family and friends, work, and various humanitarian efforts; moving forward gracefully. 

“I think I was at the end of my relationship with Brad and then when we separated," remarked Angelina. "It was complicated, I didn’t recognise myself anymore, and I’d become, how do I say this, smaller, insignificant, even if I didn’t show it. I was profoundly, deeply sad, I was hurt."

Working through her emotional turmoil, Jolie muses, "On the other hand, it was interesting to tap into this humility and sense of insignificance. In the end, that’s human. And on top of that, I was dealing with some health issues. All of these things ground you and remind you of how lucky you are to be alive. It’s a lesson I pass onto my children: the idea of renewal, and through it all, the possibility of joy. I had to rediscover the joy.”

“I do not know about destiny, but I’m certain that I’m in transition, and this is a homecoming, I’m coming back to myself. Because I was a little lost.”

We look forward to finding the freshly invigorated actress, (director, humanitarian, muse, mom) sporting platinum hair and starring in the upcoming Marvel superhero flick, "The Eternals".
