Angelina Jolie Covers Vogue December 2010
Angelina Jolie is on the cover of Vogue US for December 2010. I love love love Angelina. In fact, I usually say if I were gay, Angelina would be it for me. I never understand men who don’t find her hot. Vogue has tried to do something different with this shoot though. I think they were trying to downplay her sexiness. So I don’t really know how I feel about these pics. I prefer her in-your-face, bold beauty. See more pics from the Mario Testino shoot after the break.
She’s also given a great interview where she opens up about her day to day family life:
On whether she’s still attracted to Brad Pitt: ‘I think he’s an extremely sexy—extremely handsome and the most sexy. . . When I think about him, I just think of the man who’s such a great friend and such an extraordinary father. And that’s when I fall, you know, when I have my moments of getting—whoarr!—caught up in how much I love him . . . it’s usually when I see him with the children.’
On how her family notices her fashion choices: ‘As Brad’ll tell you, and my kids, apparently Mommy only wears black. I like to get up so every pair of pants goes with every top, every dress goes with every shoe. I’ve a very tiny closet. Brad’s always laughing at me. Some days, yes, I have the nightgown that looks like a dress that I can sleep in and pick the kids up at school. And maybe take a meeting if I switch into heels.’
On her role in Salt, originally meant for Tom Cruise: ‘I felt it was a weird thing that every time you ask for a strong female role, it’s written in this strange way where it uses sexuality far too much. Or it’s all about being a woman and beating a man. So it wasn’t a surprise to me that the only way to do a strong female role properly was to not have originally written for a woman.’
On cooking for her family: ‘Sometimes. I’m not the best cook. Pax is a better cook than me. Pax likes to cook. But I try to when I can. Any house that we’re in, we all chip in. But the kids are very sweet, so enthusiastic anytime I cook. Especially Maddox; he’s just this little man that’s very supportive of me; it’s like he’s raised me a bit. So I cooked them all breakfast before school this morning, and he has that kind of ‘Thanks, Mom! Good job!” Source
At least I’m not the only one who has issues in the kitchen…
