Angelina Jolie says she’s ‘not a perfect parent’ to her six kids

Entertainment:

Angelina Jolie says she’s very aware of the mistakes she’s made as a mother for her kids.

In People‘s 2021 Kindness Issue, Jolie opened up about her six children — Maddox, 20, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 15, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 13 — who she shares with ex-husband Brad Pitt. The Eternals star shared how they impact her and each other as they grow up.

“They’re pretty great people,” she told the publication. “And because there’s so many of them, I think they’ve had a very significant effect on each other. It’s not like I’m the head of anything. I’m very honest with my kids. And I’m very human with my kids.”

“I’m not a perfect parent by any means,” the actress admitted, adding, “Every day I feel like I’m more aware of everything I don’t do right. And I’m pretty tough on myself, because I feel often, ‘Am I doing the right thing? Did I say the right thing?’

“My children have done many, many loving things. My children’s kindness has been very healing to me.”

Jolie’s comments come after she walked the Eternals red carpet with five of her six children earlier this month.

Every day I feel like I’m more aware of everything I don’t do right.

Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in 2016 and requested sole custody of their children. The pair’s eldest son, Maddox, is considered a legal adult, so he is not subject to the custody decision.

In September, the actress told The Guardian that going through the public divorce, which was finalised in 2019, and subsequent custody battle throughout the past five years has left her feeling “broken.”

“I just want my family to heal,” she told the outlet. “And I want everyone to move forward — all of us, including their dad. I want us to heal and be peaceful. We’ll always be a family.”
