Zitat des Tages von Angelina Jolie:
The truth is I love being alive. And I love feeling free. So if I can't have those things then I feel like a caged animal and I'd rather not be in a cage. I'd rather be dead. And it's real simple. And I think it's not that uncommon.
I've been reckless, but I'm not a rebel without a cause.
I am deeply grateful to the citizens of Sarajevo and the Sarajevo Canton assembly for bestowing upon me this incredible honor of citizenship. I am so proud to now be a part of such an extraordinary part of the world and fellow citizen to the people I deeply love and admire.
To be clear: we have fights and problems like any other couple.
I think all women go through periods where we hate this about ourselves, we don't like that. It's great to get to a place where you dismiss anything you're worried about. I find flaws attractive. I find scars attractive.
Every three months, I'll say, 'Honey, I think I should learn how to cook'.
Something I learned as an actor was which scenes needed to be rehearsed and which actors are good with rehearsal, which actors learn from it, and which ones grow stale because they start to second-guess themselves.
If you have enough people sitting around telling you you're wonderful, then you start believing you're fabulous, then someone tells you you stink and you believe that too!
When I was younger, I was testing myself and questioning everything, but now it's less about that and more about these are the years of my life with my family.
If I didn't have my films as an outlet for all the different sides of me, I would probably be locked up.
I love great journalism. I appreciate it. I love a good, you know, I love good news stories. I love great books. I love great articles. I appreciate them so much, and they've been part of my education as a woman.
I love Brad in every state.
Therapy? I don't need that. The roles that I choose are my therapy.
That's when it becomes a business. When you've been public a long time, when it's a career. You do certain films, you sell them.
If I think more about death than some other people, it is probably because I love life more than they do.
I was the punk outsider who nobody messed with. I was fearless. At 16, I graduated and moved out.
I like someone who is a little crazy but coming from a good place. I think scars are sexy because it means you made a mistake that led to a mess.
I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy. I started with the breasts, as my risk of breast cancer is higher than my risk of ovarian cancer, and the surgery is more complex.
We have a choice about how we take what happens to us in our life and whether or not we allow it to turn us. We can become consumed by hate and darkness, or we're able to regain our humanity somehow, or come to terms with things and learn something about ourselves.
I think it's very important to cry in the shower and not in front of them. They need to know that everything's going to be all right, even when you're not sure it is.
My chances of developing breast cancer have dropped from 87 percent to under 5 percent. I can tell my children that they don't need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer.
I need more sex, OK? Before I die I wanna taste everyone in the world.
To be intimate with a married man, when my own father cheated on my mother, is not something I could forgive. I could not look at myself in the morning if I did that. I wouldn't be attracted to a man who would cheat on his wife.
If I make a fool of myself, who cares? I'm not frightened by anyone's perception of me.
We will always be a family. Always.
There are many things I do where the centre of it is... It's almost more my humanitarian work than art.
I'd go from film to film and almost detach from one world and jump in another. I was living as these people and not having a self. I didn't know who I was. And things just get really dark.
I became an actress because my mom wanted me to become an actress. It took me until my mid-30s to realize I actually didn't. I actually wanted to write and direct and be more involved in politics and humanitarian issues.
I don't want people saying, 'Should we get a female director?' I want to hear, 'Should we get a great director for this movie?'
I was very worried about my mother, growing up - a lot. I do not want my children to be worried about me.
I try to lead by example, being conscious of others and being responsible.
The boys know they're from Southeast Asia, and they have their food and their music and their friends, and they have a pride particular to them.
I tend not to look back and dwell on a project once it is finished.
There's something about death that is comforting. The thought that you could die tomorrow frees you to appreciate your life now.
Oh, God, I struggle with low self-esteem all the time! I think everyone does. I have so much wrong with me, it's unbelievable!
This has been my life for many years; one role feeds the other.
