Angelina Jolie: I need to feel sexy

Angelina Jolie believes its “important” to feel sexy.

The 37-year-old star is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. Angelina embraces her sex symbol status, insisting females never tire of being complimented on their looks.

“And that’s a good thing!” she laughed to Total Film when it was claimed she started winning admirers with her earlier movie roles. “I’m a woman, and anytime you tell a woman that she looks nice, it’s not going to upset her. It’s very nice to feel sexy, and it’s important. But you don’t become involved in the world, and suddenly that means you’re not a sexy person.”

Angelina is engaged to Brad Pitt and they raise six children. The pair famously met while starring in the 2005 action comedy Mr & Mrs Smith and have been in a relationship since Brad split from his then-wife Jennifer Aniston.

Angelina believes in fate and will always be grateful for the movie role which led to her falling for Brad.

“Yes, we do talk about that,” she replied when asked if they ever think about the circumstances in which they met. “We look around at our kids. I’m not somebody that thinks about destiny and fate but I don’t walk away from it when something unfolds. It’s like my children. Especially when you adopt, in some countries… Maddox had a bit of a say when I met him… but all my other children were just, ‘This is the child that has been chosen for you,’ and I suppose it’s like a child you give birth to, as you can’t have a say in it. I see that when I look at my kids. It just seems to be right. It’s hard to understand how it could unfold so beautifully; at certain times things do feel that way.”

Angelina and Brad are devoted parents and always make sure that one of them takes a break to be with the kids when the other is working on a movie.

The actress says motherhood has changed her life and keeps her grounded.

“The great thing about having a bunch of kids is that they just remind you that you’re the person who takes them to go poop,” she laughed. “That’s who you are! We have a very normal, very grounded home. And we're friends, and we have a laugh with our kids. And we don’t pay attention to this [celebrity] view of ourselves. We don’t buy those magazines, we don’t watch those TV shows. We just shut it out. We just explain to our kids that people like to take pictures of people who make movies. And that’s all it is. It’s not anything special about mommy and daddy – we just happen to make movies.”
