Angelina Jolie, even during quarantine, tries to be useful. Almost every week in online conferences or interviews, as a philanthropist and UN Goodwill Ambassador, she expresses her opinion on the topics of child abuse, domestic violence, and gender equality. And most importantly, her quotes are scattered across the Internet, attracting public attention. Moreover, the video with the actress is watched even by those who have never touched these topics and were not even interested. And all because Jolie speaks so sincerely that her words really touch, make you think. She is also incredibly beautiful, even without makeup. They say that during the pandemic, Angelina began to look even better than before. And the reason for this is the inner calm after the long-awaited truce with Brad Pitt. The couple announced their divorce almost four years ago.but all this time the former spouses could not agree on custody of their six children. Only joint courses of psychotherapy helped, which they just finished taking this summer. We have chosen the brightest quotes of Jolie, when she is in complete harmony with herself, but with great interest and a desire to help, she talks about important things.
On women's rights
“Why do many women not realize their importance? Rape, domestic violence, impunity for all this … It is terrible that we still ask and hear such requests as "Please do not hurt us", "Please hold accountable the one who hurt us" "(July 2020 of the year, online conference with former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and journalist Mika Brzezinski).
About domestic violence
“You need to love each other, keep in touch with each other. I really hope that people will hear and lend a helping hand to those who need it, and will not sit still, thinking that this is not their business. "(April 2020, video interview for Time magazine with pediatrician and chief surgeon of California Burke Harris) …
“I believe that not only those who commit violence, but also those who cover up and pretend that it does not exist, should be held accountable. Everyone says they are against domestic violence, but these are very specific things that we need to change - and child protection should be at the center of it all”(June 2020, interview with Harper's Bazaar).
“They say it takes a whole village to raise a child. So, it will take an entire nation's efforts to give children the protection and care they deserve”(April 2020, video interview for Time magazine with California pediatrician and chief surgeon Burke Harris).
“A system that protects me, but does not protect my daughter, and with her, any man, woman, child because of their skin color, is an unfair system. We need to move from empathy and sympathy to creating a legal system that eliminates structural racism and lawlessness. Police reform is just the beginning, we need changes to affect all aspects of our lives, from schools to public policy”(June 2020, interview with Harper's Bazaar).
“In raising children, the understanding that it is impossible to take into account absolutely everything helps me. You will be pleasantly surprised to learn that your children do not need perfect parents. They just want you to be honest with them and try your best to be your best.
In fact, the more opportunities your children have to be independent in areas where you fail, the more likely they are to grow up strong and caring. They love you and want to help you. In the end, this is your team, which you have put together yourself. And in a sense, they educate you. You Grow Together”(April 2020, open letter to Time magazine).
“I teach children to always listen to the oppressed and not assume that they already know everything” (June 2020, interview with Harper's Bazaar).
Adoption of children
“Adoption and an orphanage are positive words in our family. With my adopted children, I cannot talk about pregnancy, but I tell them in great detail and with love about travel, the places where I first met them and what emotions I felt the first time when I saw their eyes.
All adopted children come to our world with their secret. When they are from another race and foreign country, the mystery is so great. I believe that they should never lose touch with the place where they were born. They have roots that we don't. But we must respect their race. Communication with them is the most amazing journey in the world. It is not they who come into our world, it is our world that connects with their world”(July 2020, interview with Vogue magazine).
