Angelina Jolie is no stranger to controversy, but this time she used her fame to send a strong message with her visible and invisible scars.
The Oscar-winning actress posed nude for the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar magazine. She also gave a rare glimpse into her four-year-old breakup with Brad Pitt and her life as a mother of six.
From Brangelina to Angie's Scars
Brangelina was and still is one of the most iconic couples in Hollywood's modern history. Two gorgeous and talented actors, one destroyed marriage, one memorable movie, and six children, all in 12 years. It's a story of love and hate, passion, and destruction.
Speaking of scars, the 44-year-old beauty explained: "The invisible ones are harder to wrestle with. Life takes many turns. Sometimes you get hurt, you see those you love in pain, and you can't be as free and open as your spirit desires. It's not new or old, but I do feel the blood returning to my body."
You don't have to be a genius to realize that the actress may as well be over the breakup. Yet, there's a sense of regret and a hint of resentment.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's public split was a shock to all of us. Overnight, the picture-perfect family turned into a publicity war, and we're nowhere near the end.
Not holding back
Jolie photographed in the transparent sheet. And in the same manner, she talked about her plans or what she wants VS what she can do.
"I would love to live abroad and will do so as soon as my children are 18. Right now, I'm having to base where their father chooses to live," she explained. The former couple's youngest twins are 11, so Angelina will have to wait.
There's been a lot of rumors about her moving to the United Kingdom. This statement does put an end to all of it.
Their oldest son Maddox has already left LA for South Korea, where he studies biochemistry at Yonsei University. Perhaps one day, Jolie will join them or find a remote spot somewhere in France. Since it's Angelina Jolie, it's hard to predict anything.
Forever wild at heart
The actress didn't hold back as she described herself as "wild at heart" and "restless."
It comes as no surprise ever since she was a teenager, Jolie was not your typical Hollywood celebrity. From kissing her brother at the Oscars to becoming known as a maneater, Jolie's public image is quite intimidating.
On the other hand, she's been a UN ambassador for years, so there's no question that her wild heart is made of gold.
There're many ways to describe Jolie, but predictable or boring aren't among them. To put an end to further discussion on who is genuinely Angelina Jolie, she said:
"My children know my true self, and they have helped me to find it again and to embrace it," said the Maleficent star.
Apart from showing her scars both from her divorce and a double mastectomy, Angelina showed us, once again, that she's strong and wild, and you either love her or can't stand her. Which is excellent quality for someone larger than life.
Is this one of the best revenge photoshoots ever or what?
