Angelina Jolie Does Vanity Fair Magazine

The still pregs Angelina Jolie is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Vanity Fair magazine. In the accompanying interview, Angelina talks about her pregnancy, her international family and her stance on nannies. Here is Ange's cover and a portion of her VF interview:


Angelina Jolie on being pregnant:
"I love it. It makes me feel like a woman. It makes me feel that all the things about my body are suddenly there for a reason. It makes you feel round and supple, and to have a little life inside you is amazing. Also, I’m fortunate. I think some women have a different experience depending on their partner. I think that affects it. I happen to be with somebody who finds pregnancy very sexy. So that makes me feel very sexy."

Angelina Jolie on her international family:
"When I was growing up I wanted to adopt, because I was aware there were kids that didn’t have parents. It's not a humanitarian thing, because I don't see it as a sacrifice. It's a gift. We're all lucky to have each other. I look at Shiloh—because, obviously, physically, she is the one that looks like Brad and I when we were little—and say, 'If these were our brothers and sisters, how much would we have known by the time we were six that it took into our 30s and 40s to figure out?' I suppose I'm giving them the childhood I always wished I had."

Angelina Jolie on nannies:
"We don’t ever have anybody spend the night. We may have to adjust that when the next one comes. But we do have ladies that work with us, and they're also from different cultures and back-grounds. One lady’s a Vietnamese teacher—wonderful. One is of Congolese descent from Belgium. Another is from the States and is really creative and does art programs."


The full text of Angelina's interview with Vanity Fair will not be posted online until Monday (I suspect she'll still be pregs by then as well) but you can click HERE to read the rest of the excerpted interview at Vanity Fair's website now. [Source]
