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."

LeAnn Rimes ‘jokes’ that she ‘raped’ her boyfriend when she was a teenager

Aug 28 2014 6:45am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Here are some photos of LeAnn Rimes from a few days ago. Sorry, these sort of got lost in the shuffle of the VMAs and Emmys. She was just walking around LA, looking… pretty decent, for her. I like her better with long hair, even though it looks like she’s copying Brandi Glanville’s hairstyle. LeAnn also came out for Chelsea Handler’s last E! show, and LeAnn tweeted about it too – go here to read. Blah. When I was glancing through LeAnn’s Twitter, I saw this video interview s ...

(Star) Star magazine is desperate for attention. So desperate, in fact, that this week the magazine chose to fabricate a cover story about a made-up “showdown” between Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie at George Clooney’s non-existent wedding. Star’s new cover wants you to think Clooney and Amal Almuddin married over the weekend. They did not. Star also wants you to believe Aniston and Jolie came “face-to-face ...

Jennifer Aniston on film critics: ‘They tear people apart on a human level’

Aug 21 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Whenever I think about Jennifer Aniston’s understanding of “new media,” the internet, social media platforms and the like, I always think back to what John Mayer said about Jennifer in his now-infamous Playboy interview, which took place after they had broken up for good. When describing the differences between himself and Aniston and whether social media played a part, he said: “If Jennifer Aniston knows how to u ...
