Angelina Jolie told The Guardian in this weekend’s issue she ‘feared for her children’ during her marriage to Brad Pitt. She said her experiences in her relationship with Brad made her realise the importance of children’s rights, which she is supporting with a new book, Know Your Rights.
When asked what had happened that made her fear for her children’s rights, Jolie said she was still in her own legal situation that she “can’t speak about” but confirmed by nodding that she was alluding to her divorce and the allegations of domestic abuse she made against Pitt.
When pressed about whether or not she feared for the safety of her children, she answered: “Yes, for my family. My whole family.”
Angie also said she did not make the decision to divorce Brad lightly. “It took a lot for me to be in a position where I felt I had to separate from the father of my children.”
When asked what the past five years had taken out of her, Angelina answered: “I mean, in some ways it’s been the last decade. There’s a lot I can’t say. How am I? I’m realising that sometimes you can survive things, but not know how to feel and live in the same way. So it’s more about being open. I’m really trying to be open as a human being again.”
Angie added she had been traumatised and “broken” by her recent experiences and she wanted her family to move forward, “all of us, including their dad. I want us to heal and be peaceful. We’ll always be a family.”
Angelina has received thousands of letters of support from mothers through a child safety advocacy group. The organization said they received letters from all around the world standing with Angie through their shared experiences.
