Angelina Jolie talks to Nightline in an interview with Christiane Amanpour about a variety of things, but mostly to promote her directorial debut, “In the Land of Blood and Honey”. But what would an Angelina interview be without questions on family and most importantly, marriage like “When is it going to happen, honey?” Yeah it’s the same old song and dance, but at least she gives a somewhat different answer each time.
We’ve got a clip and some highlights from the interview below.
Numerous celebrity gossip reports are saying that Brad and Angelina will marry when everyone in this world has the right (aka the gays and lesbians). And granted while the world waits to see what happens with these two, we’re not the only ones wondering.
Brangelina’s brood has asked the question several times.
Angelina told reporter Christiane Amanpour, “The kids asked me the other day and I asked if it was just because they wanted to have a big cake…They see movies that have the people getting married… you know, the happily ever after. Shrek and Fiona are married…We have explained that our commitment when we decided to start a family was the greatest commitment you could possibly have.”
She then went on to add that it doesn’t really matter if the love and devotion is on paper. “Once you have six children, you’re … you’re committed.”
Here are a few more interesting tidbits from the interview:
ON ONE OF THE BIGGEST DEBATES IN THEIR HOUSEHOLD, THE DEATH PENALTY:
“I won’t say whose side anyone is on, but it’s the one, the thing nobody brings up at dinner because nobody wants us to go off on each other. But it’s fun. It’s a fun debate, you know? It’s a good—you want to be able to have—to respect each other’s views and to not be exactly…we’re not identical. We have—we have strong views.”
Ahhh yeah. I am sure! Would anyone else like to be a fly on the wall?
ON WHY SHE DECIDED TO HOME SCHOOL THEIR KIDS:
“I’m being very careful with their schooling, we’re home-schooling especially when it comes to history, to make sure it’s not one country’s point of view of their country,” she said. “Because it has to be very balanced and they have to learn about their country so they can form their own conclusions.”
ON WHAT KEEPS A RELATIONSHIP STRONG:
“I’m a strong believer that what keeps a great relationship is…your ethics are the same, the way you approach the world is the same. Not just your love of art, but your sense of what is right and wrong and your sense of the commitment your kids need from you, or your commitment to the rest of the world.”
