In an exclusive interview with ELLE, Angelina Jolie opened up about her family, her career, and why she has an untamed heart.

Celebrity icon, Angelina Jolie, has been a giant in the industry for over 20 years and in an exclusive interview with ELLE, Angelina Jolie opened up about her family, her career, and why she has an untamed heart. During the first decade of her career, Jolie, who does not employ a publicist or an agent, maintained a “wild child” persona in her communication with the media. She openly discussed her love life, including her bisexuality and her interest in BDSM. After she kissed her brother during the Academy Awards in 2000, their close relationship became the subject of tabloid media speculation, which she dismissed. She spoke about her experiences with drugs and depression. Throughout her career, Jolie has never faded from the spotlight. With her marriage to actor, Brad Pitt, and a mother to six, Jolie opens up with ELLE about her new life was completely unexpected.

“Whether she’s tackling films, family, or philanthropy, Angelina Jolie has never been one for small measures. As she prepared to terrify children worldwide as Disney’s deliciously evil Maleficent (the film opened on May 30th), the actress and director worked with Saint Laurent creative director Hedi Slimane on a shoot that spotlighted her stripped down, very real self for ELLE’s June cover—as well as a 16-page portfolio that will be featured in more than 20 editions of ELLE around the world.”

“Jolie spoke candidly with ELLE deputy editor Maggie Bullock about life with her fast-growing children (Shiloh’s got a half-pipe!), doing only the work that really matters (including the biggest passion project of her career), and why she and Brad (star of the 1999 film, Fight Club) are still passionate and “more interested in each other” than ever.”

“The tumult of her twenties, was “misinterpreted as [me] wanting to be rebellious,” Jolie says. “And in fact it wasn’t a need to be destructive or rebellious—it’s that need to find a full voice, to push open the walls around you. You want to be free. And as you start to feel that you are being corralled into a certain life, you kind of push against it. It may come out very strange, it may be interpreted wrong, but you’re trying to find out who you are.”

“What she hit upon was a deep and abiding fear “of a life half-lived,” she says. “I realized that very young—that a life where you don’t live to your full potential, or you don’t experiment, or you’re afraid, or you hesitate, or there are things you know you should do but you just don’t get around to them, is a life that I’d be miserable living, and the only way to feel that I’m on the right path is just to be true to myself, whatever that may be, and that tends to come with stepping out of something that’s maybe safe or traditional.”

On what she used to think her life would be like…

“I never thought I’d have children, I never thought I’d be in love, I never thought I’d meet the right person,” Jolie says. “Having come from a broken home—you kind of accept that certain things feel like a fairy tale, and you just don’t look for them.”

On how her relationship with Pitt has evolved over the past eight years…

“You get together and you’re two individuals and you feel inspired by each other, you challenge each other, you complement each other, drive each other beautifully crazy. After all these years, we have history—and when you have history with somebody, you’re friends in such a very real, deep way that there’s such a comfort, and an ease, and a deep love that comes from having been through quite a lot together.”
