Jolie never considered other careers [The Nation] 12 Sep, 2017

Los Angeles-Angelina Jolie’s mother encouraged her to be an actress and she followed the profession just to make her mom happy.The ‘Maleficent’ star - who is the daughter of actors Jon Voight and the late Marcheline Bertrand- was encouraged to follow in her parents’ footsteps by her mom and one of the reasons why she pursued it as a career was because she knew how happy it would make her mother.She said: ‘’I grew up around film and I grew up in a town where film was so important that it’s all anyone talked about. It was the thing to be.‘’When I was growing up, I remember my mom telling me how she wanted to be an actress and my grandmother wanted to be an actress and she was so excited that I could be an actress. I never really thought I could be anything else and I never really questioned it.‘’I did start to get into acting and I did it partially because it was something to do with my mom and it made her so happy.’’ And the 42-year-old actress - who has kids Maddox, 16, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and nine-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with estranged husband Brad Pitt - admitted her career motivation changed when her beloved mother died of cancer in 2007.Speaking at an ‘In Conversation with’ event at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), she said: ‘’I realised when my mom passed away that it was something I was very much something I was doing for her and it changed a little bit.‘’I haven’t done much since she passed away, in front of the camera. Now I do it for my kids. And I do love it! It is fun! Who doesn’t love to get silly?’’This news was published in The Nation newspaper. Read complete newspaper of 12-Sep-2017 here.
