LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Academy Award-winning actress, mother and humanitarian Angelina Jolie, 33, gives a very candid interview with Entertainment Weekly, and she discusses everything from film roles, to family to her past.
"[Being pregnant is] great for the sex life. It just makes you a lot more creative. So you have fun, and as a woman you're just so round and full."
On family activities:
"On weekends we usually have family sleep. We always have one night a week where everybody stays up late, watches a movie, and stays in our bed. We have, like, a slumber party."
"It's not a big intentional thing not to marry. We immediately were a family when we became a couple, and children were the priority, and we're both legally committed to the children. And that seemed to be the right thing."
On her ex-husband, Billy Bob Thornton:
"I still love him dearly and think the world of him and I'm proud to have been his wife for a time. I don't believe in regrets. It's a dangerous habit to get into â€” it makes you pause in your life if you start thinking back and questioning yourself."
On her latest role as Fox, in the upcoming film Wanted:
"I don't think like in Wanted - which is an action movie - people should [just] be killed. I think there should be trials and justice. But the idea behind Wanted is not that she's a badass assassin that just likes to kill people. It's that, if you ran into Hitler before he did everything, and you knew, should you shoot him? And I would. These assassins are getting lists: They find out who is going to slaughter other people ahead of time and they remove them. So that was the side of me that identified with her. But it is a confusing thing, certainly for rights activists. Don't read too much into it."
On her reputation:
"That some people support me and some people really don't like me tells me that I'm making decisions and I'm standing strong for something I believe in. I'm making choices in life. And that's the right thing to do."
