Angelina Jolie: Helping others makes me happy

Jun 8 2014, 3:26am CDT | by

Angelina Jolie believes visiting war zones has made her a "happier" person.

The 38-year-old actress - who raises children Maddox , 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, eight, and five-year-old Knox and Vivienne with fiance Brad Pitt - says the travelling she does in her work with the United Nations has stopped her worrying about her own problems and made her appreciate the things she has.

She said: "I'd been through a period where I was more concerned with my own problems and pain. Then I traveled to places where there were landmine victims, I went to my first war zone, to places where you see people in real need.

"You meet people who don't even know where their parents are, or their children, and they haven't got enough food.

"And you wake up in a moment, you realize how fortunate you are that your concerns are nothing in comparison.

"You don't worry about yourself, you worry about other people and you just grow up. It helped me get out of my own head. And it's a happier life. To be of service to others creates a happier life."

The 'Maleficent' actress believes people are not born evil and their personalities are determined by the choices they make in life.

She told Psychologies magazine: "We have a choice about how we take what happens to us in our life and whether or not we allow it to turn us.

"We can become consumed by hate and darkness, or we're able to regain our humanity somehow, or come to terms with things and learn something about ourselves."

Celebitchy Book Club: ‘Unbroken’ by Laura Hillenbrand

Aug 31 2014 7:38am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Kaiser’s take: Laura Hillenbrand’s Unbroken was one of my favorite CB Book Club picks ever! I got hooked on it and binge-read it over the course of a week. I was actually surprised by how just how readable it was. I guess I expected it to be dense and packed with WWII stuff and while there was a lot of information to absorb, the crux of Louis Zamperini’s story never felt weighed down, even in those times when his life was very da ...

‘At this point, Jennifer Aniston does not want children,’ Us Weekly’s source claims

Aug 29 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Jennifer Aniston went dark after the news of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s wedding broke yesterday morning. Whatever interviews you see with her today were done BEFORE the news broke. Just FYI. “Going dark” isn’t a bad strategy at this point, but it sucks that she has to do that when she was in the middle of promoting Life of Crime. And yes, while I’m no Aniston-loonie, it’s unfair that many people are going “Aw, poor Jen” in the wake of Brangelina’s announcement. To ...
