Angelina Jolie interviewed with Marie Claire and talks about her career, Brad Pitt and her family.

On her transition into the movie business, she explains:
"I woke up one day realising, 'God, I'm an actor'. I don't think I intended to be an actor. I think my mother wanted it for me. I loved telling stories, and I enjoyed the profession, but is it too late to be something else?"

On the subject of Brad Pitt:
"[Brad] has expanded my life in ways I never imagined. We built a family. He is not just the love of my life, he is my family. I hold that very dear."

On what she's learned from her Oscar-nominated fiance:
"I suppose what I've learned from Brad is to be able to have the kind of family whose happiness and well-being comes before your own. I'm very, very grateful to have such a loving family, and I wouldn't have that without him."

On her mother being an influence on how she handles issues with her children:
"My mom couldn't yell, and she couldn't swear. But she would cry. If I was out all night and didn't call, I could see in her face that she didn't sleep all night. And that she loved me."
