One would think that someone as fancy and as classy as Angelina Jolie would be grounded by nature and life and humanitarian efforts, but alas, the 37-year-old actress of six – Maddox, 11, Pax, 9, Zahara, 8, Shiloh, 6, and Knox and Vivienne, 4 – explains that her children’s toilet habits keep her grounded. In an exclusive interview with Total Film magazine, the actress said, “The great thing about having a bunch of kids is they just remind you that you’re the person who takes them to go poop!”
Angelina and Brad Pitt are two of the biggest celebrity superstars in the world. Not many celeb couples are able to contend with the enormity of their fame, but according to Angelina, this doesn’t bother her much, as she and her “family don’t pay any attention to their celebrity status.”
She adds, “We have a very normal, very grounded home. And we’re friends, and we have a laugh with our kids. And we don’t pay attention to this [celebrity] view of ourselves. We don’t buy those magazines, we don’t watch those TV shows. We just shut it out.” The couple also has a very interesting way of explaining to their children their celebrity status, as Angelina states, “We just explain to our kids that people like to take pictures of people who make movies. And that’s all it is. It’s not anything special about mommy and daddy – we just happen to make movies.”
Well, it is true that Angelina and Brad are “normal” people with “normal” habits, but there is actually nothing “normal” about them. They both grew up in the public eye and became superstars overnight. Fame must surely affect someone on a preternatural level.
What do you think? Do you think these two are as normal as can be? Do you think their idea of fame is a pleasant one? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
