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."

Are George & Amal Clooney hosting a ‘second wedding’ party this weekend?

Oct 24 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

For the past week, George Clooney has been separated from his bride by thousands of miles. He was in Canada working on reshoots for Tomorrowland and then he was photographed in LA, wearing a tequila t-shit and visiting a chiropractor. Of course, Amal and George Clooney are adults with competing careers and schedules, so it’s not a code-red emergency that they’ve been apart for more than a week during the first month of their marriage. I tend to think this was the arrangement a ...

Brad Pitt’s ‘Between Two Ferns’ involves Louis CK, Ross & Rachel questions

Oct 23 2014 9:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Confession: I “get” why people think Between Two Ferns is comedy gold, but many of the BTF episodes on Funny or Die are sort of boring to me. Of course, there are exceptions. Pres. Obama’s Between Two Ferns was amazing. And now Zach Galifianakis has interviewed Brad Pitt and I actually found myself laughing out loud several times. Yes, it’s awkward and it’s supposed to be a send-up of those sycophantic celebrity interviews. But this i ...
