Academy Award-winning actress Angelina Jolie has revealed she considers herself to be a normal mother.
The 42-year-old actress - who has sons Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, and Knox, nine, as well as daughters Shiloh, 11, Zahara, 13, and Vivienne, nine, with her estranged husband Brad Pitt - has claimed that despite being a wealthy, Oscar-winning movie star, she still experiences the same stresses as most parents around the world. Angelina admitted to Deadline: ''We're all trying to find balance.''The Hollywood star conducted the interview alongside director Nora Twomey, who helmed the animated drama movie 'The Breadwinner' in 2017.
The film tells the story of a young Afghan girl whose father is sent to prison, and so she has to dress as a boy to work in order to support her mother.
Asked how she balances her career with the demands of parenthood, Angelina explained: ''I think that's life, isn't it?
''I'm sure you're the same as a person. You have your creative, and you have your work, and every day of your life is going to be about somehow growing as a person. Somehow feeling you can contribute to the extent that you can get tribute.''
And Angelina - who executive produced the movie - sees a lot of parallels between herself and Nora.
She shared: ''Nora and I, when we spend time alone, spend most of our time just talking about being moms, and I think that's the balance.''We're all trying to find balance, as people. I think to be a balanced person, you have to find those things that you just purely enjoy.''
Meanwhile, Angelina previously admitted that prior to adopting her children, she never really considered becoming a mother.
She confessed: ''It's strange, I never wanted to have a baby. I never wanted to be pregnant. I never babysat. I never thought of myself as a mother.'' —Contactmusic
