Most Hollywood A-listers have perfected the art of saying not very much at all in interviews, so we were surprised to see Angelina Jolie opening up in the June issue of US Elle.
On the subject of how coming from a single parent family made her feel like she’d never find love, Angelina, 38, revealed: ‘I never thought I’d have children, I never thought I’d be in love, I never thought I’d meet the right person. Having come from a broken home—you kind of accept that certain things feel like a fairy tale, and you just don’t look for them.’
Of course, Angelina did find happiness with Brad Pitt. Speaking about their hectic life together, she said, ‘You get together and you’re two individuals and you feel inspired by each other, you challenge each other, you complement each other, drive each other beautifully crazy’.
‘After all these years, we have history—and when you have history with somebody, you’re friends in such a very real, deep way that there’s such a comfort, and an ease, and a deep love that comes from having been through quite a lot together.’

As a fan of Hedi Slimane, it's no surprise to hear Angie was shot by the man himself. The actress has long been a fan of the Saint Laurent designer, wearing his creations on many red carpet occasions and having his bags forever attached to her arm. And in true Hedi style, the shoot oozes rock'n'roll cool and is in that trademark monochrome style. It suits the A-lister down to a tee and reignites her edge while the SL connection certainly ups her cool credentials in the eyes of the fash-pack.
