Angelina Jolie has opened up about her divorce from Brad Pitt, citing the well-being of the children as the reason for the split.
Jolie and Pitt divorced in 2016, and in an interview with Vogue India, the Tombraider said that the decision to end their two-year marriage was done with the well-being of their six children in mind.
“I separated for the well-being of my family. It was the right decision. I continue to focus on their healing“, she said.
Jolie also addressed her silence following the separation, elaborating that the speculation surrounding her union with Pitt affected her children.
Some have taken advantage of my silence and the children see lies about themselves in the media. But I remind them that they know their own truth and their own minds. In fact, they are six very brave, very strong young people.”
The actress also shared how she raised her adopted kids, Maddox, Pax, and Zahara, and embraced their different backgrounds.
Each is a beautiful way of becoming family. What is important is to speak with openness about all of it and to share.
‘Adoption’ and ‘orphanage’ are positive words in our home. With my adopted children, I can’t speak of pregnancy, but I speak with much detail and love about the journey to find them and what it was like to look in their eyes for the first time.
All adopted children come with a beautiful mystery of a world that is meeting yours. When they are from another race and foreign land, that mystery, that gift, is so full.
For them, they must never lose touch with where they are from. They have roots that you do not. Honor them. Learn from them.
It’s the most amazing journey to share. They are not entering your world, you’re entering each other’s worlds.”
