Angelina Jolie says she lacks ‘all the skills’ to be a traditional mother

The Hollywood actress, 45, is mum to six kids with her ex Brad Pitt – Maddox, 19, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 14, and 12-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

In a new interview with the magazine, Angelina has admitted she never saw herself as raising kids in a traditional way.

She always wanted to be out adventuring and just assumed her children would come with her.

Angelina said: “Well, I was never very good at sitting still…

“Even though I wanted to have many children and be a mom, I always imagined it kind of like Jane Goodall, travelling in the middle of the jungle somewhere.

“I didn’t imagine it in that true, traditional sense.

“I feel like I’m lacking in all the skills to be a traditional stay-at-home mom.

“I’m managing through it because the children are quite resilient, and they’re helping me, but I’m not good at it at all.”

Angelina split from Brad back in 2016 just two years after they tied the knot.

They have since been going through a lengthy divorce process, and Angelina admits the last few years have been tough.

She told the magazine: “The past few years have been pretty hard.

“I’ve been focusing on healing our family. It’s slowly coming back, like the ice melting and the blood returning to my body.”

However, the actress is adamant she’s not worried about turning 50 in five years time.

She added: “I’m looking forward to my fifties – I feel that I’m gonna hit my stride in my fifties.

“Though we were on the trampoline the other day, and the children said, ‘No, Mom, don’t do that. You’ll hurt yourself.’
