Angelina Jolie - Angelina Jolie Wishes She Could Speak To Mother
Angelina Jolie has confessed there are times when she forgets her mother Marcheline Bertrand is dead and wants to speak to her about her kids.
Angelina Jolie wishes she could still speak to her late mother.
The actress misses her mum Marcheline Bertrand - who died in January 2007 aged 56 after an eight-year battle with ovarian cancer - and often wants to tell things about her six children, Maddox, 10, Pax, eight, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
Angelina said: ''There are times when I want to talk to my mother about something the children do, and then I realise she is not there.''
The 'In the Land of Blood and Honey' director credits her late mother, who was an actress and producer, with instilling a loving nature within her which has never deserted her even when she went through a wild and rebellious stage in her 20s.
In an interview with The Times newspaper, the 36-year-old star - whose father is actor Jon Voight - revealed: ''She gave me a great sense of love. I might have been nutty (in my youth) but I was always loving.''
Just as Marcheline inspires her as a parent, Angelina says her partner Brad Pitt inspires her everyday and is the rock in her life.
She said: ''He is my family ... Brad always says I'm so strong when I'm in the world. But then when I am asleep in my nightgown I'm just like everyone else. I'm not so strong.''
