Angelina Jolie Reveals Her Hopes For Her Six Children

Angelina Jolie Reveals Her Hopes For Her Six Children

Angelina Jolie arrives for the Women in the World summit on Monday (September 11) in Toronto, Canada.

The actress, director, and humanitarian spoke about her six children, who joined her at the Toronto Film Festival for her premieres this week.

“I hope they’re being raised to see the value of diversity, the value of other people. They ask the questions we’re all asking. They see what’s happening in Syria or in Myanmar and they ask why, and we’re all trying to find the same answers,” Angelina said. “I will look for all different ways to communicate about their histories and really to teach them.”

“We homeschool and I’m very very aware of their education, mostly very aware of what’s lacking. For example it’s very important to me my daughter Zahara doesn’t start learning about her history through the civil rights movement in America, that’s not how she begins to learn about herself as a young African-American,” Angelina continued. “She needs to learn about the great history of Africa and who she is…and not start with the civil rights (movement).”

    Hey to the fans.. had to do a recent to see what thread was active. Lots of them.

    We made it through the storm. Some damage to the yard be all is well. Power came on about 10 minutes ago. Can’t imagine what it would be like if we had a direct hit. Cleaning up the yard and checking out the house for damage. So will have to look in some other time. Just so crazy. Hope yolly and jaye and all the other fans in Florida are safe and sound.

    bye for now.

    Thanks TP, this one was not posted before. The NYC screening Thursday night info was posted.

    Posted earlier downthread that Angie was making an east coast swing to promo FTKMF and that she would be back home in LA by Friday as she and Loung are to attend the Cambodian Film Festival in Long Beach on Saturday 9/16.

    Angie is multitasking as always. Glad Rithy is also promoting, maybe he will also be in Long Beach. Good exposure for him as a film maker.

  • Beedyq

    Great news to be hearing from you Busted. Glad your power is back on and the yard damage is not too much. Stay safe!

  • sandra

    Vulture review is pretty negative.

  • toastie postie

    Thanks for letting us know. I hope we hear from Yolly and Jaye.

  • well

    It’s so good that you made it ok- so many scary pics!

  • ali7

    What she is saying is nonsense and she doesn’t even know where is Cambodia, just a stupid bitch.

  • sandra

    Don’t worry. Those MF of RT will put this one right away when we have 5 positive reviews that are not in the site.

    PLEASE watch First They Killed My Father on Netflix (Sept 15), based on a true story of the Cambodian genocide 40 years ago. SO good.

  • toastie postie

    This is an AP mini compilation of interviews – nice – no tabloid tone to it – like hearing about Maddox
    Director Angelina Jolie discusses having her kids on the set of “First They Killed My Father” at the movie’s Toronto International Film Festival premiere. (Sept. 12)

    It’s been days since some of those reviews were written and nothing. If they post this negative one right away, it’ll be so unfair. I saw someone on CB gleefully post that it has a 60% rating earlier today. Imdb is not being fair. The movie opens on Friday. All the reviews should be posted.

  • plez

    Love it.

  • bap

    Lovely the Mural.

  • Passing Through

    Who wrote it? Please tell me it was Manohla Dargis because she’s one of the Angie hating critics I thought would shite all over it…

  • Las

    Did you tell her it only had 5 reviews at that point?

  • Passing Through

    Busted -

    Glad to hear you’re OK and have power back and minimal damage. A lot of the photos are just flat out scary.

  • Las

    Busted=gizmo.

  • well

    Eh- I wouldn’t sweat it- Angie already got her movie made/distributed & many more people will know about Cambodia, Loung’s story & the danger of allowing dictators/anti-intellectuals/insane narcissists to take power…besides the JPs are ALWAYS being held to a higher/unfair standard, some of these reviewers admit to not even watching the films before they review them- MANY did that with TT…some of these folks wouldn’t say anything decent about JPs if their life depended on it & 99.9% spin things in a negative way or simply LIE when it comes to the JPs & censor positive news.

  • mkv

    No it wasn’t. I think Dargis is exclusively NYtines now and their reviews haven’t posted yet

    Re: Hillary’s book – I was at CNN earlier and LMAO because they said her new book is proof she’s not running again (she’s said she’s not) because she toasted too many people – including Bernie Sanders. Bernie’s response was to tell Colbert it’s time to move past the 2016 election…even as he continues to dog Drumpf about it…

  • toastie postie

    Don’t know if posted already – outtake picture from VF – the director picture

    Is Dargis exclusive to NYT now? She used to bleed over to Vulture with her snarking.

  • toastie postie

    Jerry Penacoli interviewing Angie – at the end, either he crossed the line or she didn’t want to talk about it. By line I mean – not sure if there was an agreement not to talk about certain things or she just didn’t want to talk about it.

  • Beedyq

    Not sure what you are talking about. By him asking that last question which was kinda a gotcha get for Extra on a RC that she just moved on without answering?

  • loff

    why what was asked?

  • Beedyq

    He said something like “they have known each other a long time and been through low times and what does she do to get through low times” Angie just sorta smiled and moved on.

    That is my interpretation LOL.

  • loff

    thanks, I normally like him, but I guess he had to do his job too to get an exclusive quote.

  • toastie postie

    She immediately started moving off pretty quickly in my opinion, getting that look when he said lows and muttered just move on while looking at the next person.

  • Beedyq

    That is what I thought. Very much doubt that Angie imposed any kind of censorship on questions to be asked.

    Extra gave him instructions to get something exclusive knowing JerryP is well liked and he was doing his job.

    Others might have heard something else.

  • loff

    She’s a professional and moved on, she is not like some people who would try to make a drama out of things. Good on her. Its not like she isnt getting attacked enough already by not saying any thing is it.

  • loff

    At least he did not pester her like a bitch like other were. I had heard Angelina did not put any censorship on questions , its just that people did not get the chance to ask LOL

  • Passing Through

    He always thinks Brad and Angie are going to answer questions from him they wouldn’t answer from any other reporter – and he’s always wrong…

  • Beedyq

    I did not hear the just move on so will listen again.

    Yes she moved on rapidly, read she spent an hour with lined up press before the screening.

  • loff

    Don’t break his heart.

  • toastie postie

    That’s what I got – that he could get away with it, since he’s been with them through the highs and lows.

  • Beedyq

    That is how he operates on RC’s isn’t it. But nothing really.

  • bella

    He asked Angie what she did to get “through the lows”, he prefaced the question by saying to Angie both he and she had been through “highs and lows”. Angie just said “You move on” as she was walking away.

  • bella

    He really didn’t ask anything very personal, she just looked as if she had to move on as he asked the question.

  • Beedyq

    She had to move on as many other press members were lined up waiting to talk to her.

    NBD at all.

  • bella

    I turned my speaker up high to hear what he asked and her answer. To be fair to him, Angie was already starting to move on when he asked her about how she got through the lows.

  • Malf

    Fvckem. They’re usually negative no matter what Angie does.

  • loff

    i saw the video again the blond lady taht we thought was a stylist , but I think is Netflix pr person as she tapped his arm as time up and then he put that question as she was walking away she said you keep moving on

  • bella

    ITA, he was kind and not at all invasive.

  • Beedyq

    Yes she had to get to other press that was waiting.

  • loff

    He;s also had cancer too hasnt he ? I think he was talking health low’s
