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."

Penelope Cruz has become the 2014 Sexiest Woman Alive, according to Esquire Mag.

Trying to pick out the ‘sexiest woman alive‘ must be like trying to pick out the best looking cinnamon roll at the donut store. Every freaking cinnamon roll looks amazing! Sure, there are some that have more icing than others, but that wouldn’t stop you from putting your dick inside the inferior ones. Wait, what? This is getting weird now. The point I am trying to make is that there are a lot of sexy women out there. The female body is bea ...

Did Angelina Jolie disrespect the new UN ambassadors, like Emma Watson?

Oct 13 2014 6:45am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Does Angelina Jolie have humanitarian coattails? I’ve always believed she does. Back in 2001, Angelina became a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commission on Refugees. By the time she got that appointment, she had already made at least three overseas trips to refugee camps and had begun researching the role that would consume her for the rest of her life. Angelina always took her UN work very seriously, even when she was critici ...

Jessica Chastain: Stop giving Meryl Streep all of the ‘older woman’ parts

Oct 8 2014 6:10am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Jessica Chastain got the cover of SO MANY magazines this fall. She covers the new issues of Interview Mag and Glamour, which I’m including in this post. I hate the Glamour cover, but the rest of the Glamour shot is actually really nice. The Interview editorial is all black & white and heavy on the lingerie. Here are some highlights from JC’s Glamour interview: On becoming famous in her 30s vs. at age 19: “I would have been a disaster. If I was 19 and I h ...
