Speaking openly, Angelina Jolie addressed her divorce from actor Brad Pitt as well as the immense media and public attention she has received in the entertainment industry. The Academy Award-winning performer said that, if she were just starting in the industry in 2023, she would not pursue a career in acting in a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal Magazine.
Angelina’s career as a Hollywood actor
In a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal Magazine, Angelina declared, “I wouldn’t be an actress today. My body reacts very strongly to stress. My blood sugar goes up and down. I suddenly had Bell’s palsy six months before my divorce. When I was starting, it wasn’t as much of an expectation to be as public and to share so much. I’ve just been around so long and there’s been everything said.”
The actor revealed more about his decision to leave Hollywood, saying, “It’s part of what happened after my divorce. I lost the ability to live and travel freely. I will move when I can. I grew up in quite a shallow place. Of all the places in the world, Hollywood is not a healthy place. So you seek authenticity.”
Regarding the affair between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
While filming Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2004, Angelina Jolie got to know Brad Pitt. Ten years of dating later, the couple tied the knot in 2014. In 2016, they decided to divorce. Six children are shared by them: Maddox, 17, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and the ten-year-old twins, Vivienne and Knox. They are engaged in a legal battle for property and other matters. Brad filed a lawsuit against Angelina in June for selling her stake in their French vineyard without first talking to him.
Regarding her career, Angelina Jolie is set to play the role of the renowned opera singer Maria Callas in the film Maria, directed by Pablo Larrain. The world’s best female opera singer’s unstable, beautiful, and sad life story will be relived and remade in the film during her final days in Paris in the 1970s.
