Angelina Jolie Speaks about Her Aging
Angelina Jolie gave a new interview to InStyle magazine, and talked all about growing older, and how she doesn’t fear her changing appearance. “I look in the mirror and I see that I look like my mother, and that warms me. I also see myself aging, and I love it because it means I’m alive—I’m living and getting older. Don’t love having a random dark spot from a pregnancy, sure. I see my flaws. But what I see that I like isn’t about a structure or an appearance. It’s more that I see my family in my face. I see my age,” she confessed.
The Oscar winner isn’t much for makeup or being all glammed up, but she’s making sure her daughter Zahara feels free to experiment with beauty products. “I buy a lot, especially for Z [Zahara].
She went through a period of trying different things, but she’s pretty natural. I remember she had a girlfriend over one night, and they said they were going to do dress-up and did I have any makeup? I gave them my makeup, but I wear one color red, and I have black eyeliner and mascara—I have the most boring makeup kit. And my daughter and I are different shades of brown. I now have a backup kit in case anybody wants to play,” she revealed.
One thing she’d rather her kids not experiment with? Social media! “My children don’t really do a lot of social media. I’m hoping they’ll have room to figure out what they like before they’re told by a bunch of other people what they should like or how they’re being perceived. My mom used to say when I was little, ‘Let me see your soul.’ That was her thing. Whenever I’d get upset or something, she’d say, ‘Let me see your soul.’ What it meant was, ‘Show me you. Are you mad? Let me see.’ I’ve never really talked about that. I think, I hope anyway, that’s how I’m raising my children: Put what’s inside you forward and find you, figure out who you are,” she explained.
If we looked like Angie, we wouldn’t mind aging either!
