The mystique surrounding Angelina Jolie is stronger than ever as many speculate on her relationship with Brad Pitt, their growing family and her philanthropic work. The actress has come a long way since her wild child days with Billy Bob Thornton. There are many debates floating around as to whether she and Brad had an affair while the dashing actor was still married to Jennifer Aniston. In an interview with British magazine Stylist, Angelina tries to put to rest Brad Pitt affair rumors and dishes on her children, Shiloh's choice of tomboy clothing, date nights with Brad and many more. The actress has received box office success with her spy thriller Salt and though there are no plans of quitting her career, she talks about talking less roles and focusing on her family.
On date nights and alone time with Brad: “Yeah, we just have to schedule it. We don't normally have anyone spend the night with our family, so once every week or two weeks, we'll ask somebody to spend the night, so we can go and be alone together. We just go to another part of the house and lock the door. We have date nights, absolutely, you have to if you have children! Sometimes we go out, but we both miss the kids so we don't like to go far.”
On Shiloh's style: "It's not my choice. I have a very strong willed four-year-old girl who tells me what she wants to wear and I let her be who she is. People look at kids and think they should wear certain types of clothes; I think children should wear what they want and express themselves, so we give them different options of things. Zahara dresses very much like a girl, very pink and flowery, very feminine. Shiloh cried and said, 'Please cut my hair off, I don't want to have long hair.' I'm not going to leave it long because somebody thinks I should," she says "I want to do what's in her head and what's in her heart is to dress like that. I think it's beautiful."
On meeting Brad during Mr. and Mrs. Smith: "It didn't begin on the film set; we became friends on the film set, but it began after. And at a certain age, having gone through enough experiences, I think you know. It wasn't courageous, it was more comforting to have found my family."
On learning from her kids: "They're so knowledgeable, so self-aware, gracious. And they're all different. One of them is a natural leader and has this kind of strength, and one of them has extraordinary grace and elegance and femininity that I didn't realize you could be born with. Like every mother, I'm learning patience and all these wonderful things from them and I'm just so curious to see who they're going to be when they get older."
