Speaking for the first time about her highly publicised breakup with Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie struggled to hold back tears as she talked about the “very difficult time”
In a sit-down interview with BBC World News that aired on Sunday, the 41-year-old actress and human rights activist was asked if she would like to comment about “an incident” that occurred in her marriage that led to their separation.
She got emotional and said, “I don’t want to say very much about that, except to say it was a very difficult time” Obviously upset, Jolie continued “We’re a family, and we will always be a family, and we will get through this time and hopefully be a stronger family for it.”
She is being joined in Cambodia by her six children over the weekend as she promoted her fourth feature as director, First they killed my Father. The event marked Angelina’s first official appearance after going her separate ways from Brad Pitt.
As for her future, Jolie admitted she hopes to “be travelling around the world visiting my children” in five years’ time. She elaborated, “Everything I do I hope is that I represent something, and I represent the right things to my children and give them the right sense of what they’re capable of, and the world as it should be seen.”
“Not through the prism of Hollywood or through a certain kind of life, but really take them into the world, where they have a really good sense and become rounded people,” Angelina mentioned.
