"I didn’t recognize myself anymore." https://t.co/9v09eVgce8— BuzzFeed (@BuzzFeed) October 7, 2019
In a recent interview with French magazine Madame Figaro, Angelina talked about her self post-separation from Brad Pitt in 2016.
She said in part:
"I do not know about destiny, but I’m certain that I’m in transition, and this is a homecoming, I’m coming back to myself, because I was a little lost. I think it was at the end of my relationship with Brad and then when we separated. It was complicated. I didn’t recognize myself anymore, and I’d become, how do I say this, smaller, insignificant, even if I didn’t show it."
She continued: "I was profoundly, deeply sad. I was hurt. On the other hand, it was interesting to tap into this humility and sense of insignificance...It’s a lesson I pass onto my children: the idea of renewal, and through it all, the possibility of joy. I had to rediscover the joy."
Angelina is currently living her best life touring the world and making heart eyes at Michelle Pfeiffer during the Maleficent 2 promo tour.
