Angelina Jolie hints new movie caused her split from Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie

The 42-year-old actress filed for divorce from the Allied star - with whom she has children Maddox (16), Pax (13), Zahara (12), Shiloh (11) and nine-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - nearly a year ago, and has admitted the stressful year has made her stronger as a mother, as she's been "needed at home" to help them deal with the changes to their family.

The ambitious and highly praised Cambodian film First They Killed My Father, which director Angelina Jolie has been debuting on the fall festival circuit - first at Telluride and just this week at the Toronto Film Festival - is set to debut on Netflix this Friday as well as in several art house theaters.

"I was trying to help wherever I could", Maddox said of preparing for shoots, helping Jolie review dailies, attending meetings, and studying documentaries.

So what, exactly, do Angelina Jolie's six children think of her?

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt announced their separation a year ago, with Angelina filing for divorce citing irreconcilable differences, ending their 12 year relationship.

"If he had said no, I'm not sure I would have made the film", Jolie elaborated on asking Panh to work with her, which he agreed to do after she drafted three hand-written letters addressed to the Cambodian icon.

According to the NYT piece, the time she spent filming First They Killed My Father, a movie about the horrors of living under Cambodia's oppressive Khmer Rouge regime told through the eyes of a child, might have been an eye opener with regard to her relationship with Pitt.

The US Government Is Getting Rid Of Moscow-Based Kaspersky Products
Also in July, the U.S. government's General Services Administration removed Kaspersky Lab from a list of approved vendors. Kaspersky, founded in 1997 and headquartered in Moscow, is now one of the world's leading cyber security firms.

"I have had my ups and downs. I guess I am a little bit stronger", she told People.

"We all have our hard times, but as a mother you also have a responsibility first and foremost towards the kids". We've all been a bit in lockdown.

'They are going through their formative years and everything else comes second to that'.

In what seems like a swipe at her ex, Angelina then says: "They're the best friends I've ever had".

Her son Maddox, in particular, spent months in his native country ahead of the Netflix drama.

"I do not want my children to be anxious about me", she said. Get HELLO! Canada, PEOPLE, Vanity Fair and over 100 more of the world's best magazines for one low monthly price at Texture by Next Issue.
