Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

Wasn’t Brad going to do a cameo in Salt?
Brad was going to be that motorcycle guy and then call me a bad name before he sped off. But he was watching the kids that day and that’s always more important.

So let’s get to the rumors: Pregnant? Adopting another child?
No, nothing to report. I know the papers either wants me pregnant or breaking up. I think it’s very important to give our children the individual attention they need now before expanding our family.

How do you and Brad give six kids enough individual attention?
You just try to feel them. At different times, different children need you. You must listen to them. Brad and I are also lucky because there are two of us. We can spread the attention around. For example, all of the older children came to Cancun with us last week and then I came back home and it was time for the babies. I take the girls out for a day of shopping and the boys have special time with Dad.”

Do the kids play one of you off the other when one says “no?”
We’re a united front. They can’t play mom against dad. That never works.

How hard is it having twin toddlers?
Toddlers can really run fast. Zahara can easily out-run me. But the twins have this deal where they run off in different directions at the same time. So, we have gates all over inside the house. Brad and I will collapse at the end of the day knowing that we got our running in for the day even with the gates. We don’t need to go to the gym.

How do you deal with the ever-present paparazzi?
Salt and I do the same thing. We try to keep our heads down and just get out of there.

    “the twins have this deal where they run off in different directions at the same time. So, we have gates all over inside the house.” That is just too adorable! I really enjoyed this interview with her!

    She’s awesome and gorgeous. Haters should get over it.

  7. deborah says:

    Wow…it is awesome to get to know Angie beyond just the photos.

  8. shamrockblonde says:

    with identical twin granndaughters I am very familiar with that trick of both running in different directions! – it is exhausting, especially when you have other little ones in the house as well –

  9. Jane Chase says:

    Great interview, thanks :-) I feel I now know her.

  10. Coreen says:

    I know she is a very spiritual person but I still feel her & Brad getting together at the expense of Jennifer Aniston was not right. I know love can come at anytime but…

  11. angels77 says:

    she should be asked about her other “proffesional ” work with Adnan Kashoggi etc
    and what became of Bettina

  12. cremebrulee67 says:

    i love love love her!!!!

  13. amercianmom says:

    Sorry still don’t like her and cant wait till the Morton book comes out. Maybe if she had close girlfriends she wouldn’t be so cavalier about taking a husband from another woman.

  14. beach princess says:

    Aren’t we all just over them. Angelina is just a little too creepy (the freaky, a-moral beauty but kind philanthropist). Brad is the real loser that got away with everything. It’d be nice to not see them on the cover of a magazine at the grocery check-out even for a week. I think you’d hear the world take a collective sigh of relief! :)
