Angelina Jolie has been photographed out in Los Angeles here and there with her six children throughout the last year, as the actress has quarantined in the city with her family. This weekend, Jolie was seen at the mall with her two oldest daughters, 16-year-old Zahara and 14-year-old Shiloh. Jolie wore a long black wrap coat with a black mask and boots for the occasion.
The sighting comes days after Jolie’s new interview with British Vogue was published, where Jolie spoke about her family’s life during the pandemic and how her teenage children’s milestones have been altered. Shiloh and Zahara have a younger brother and sister, 12-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, along with two older brothers, 19-year-old Maddox and 17-year-old Pax.
“I think that like most families, we have had this bigger thing happening with the pandemic,” she said. “But of course you also have these life markers. We went into it having just gotten out of the hospital with Zahara [who underwent surgery early last year], and we were so happy she was okay that we entered lockdown in a different state of mind. But, you know, there are also these other markers of life: Pax going into his senior year, but not being able to enjoy all that it is to be a senior; Zahara finally getting her driving license, but she’s taking the test with the driver wrapped in the full outfit with the masks. It’s not how you imagine these moments. But birthdays go on, and I think that for many people, it’s made us all feel very human together. There’s something beautiful about that.”
She added that her kids have been helping her manage the household. “I was never very good at sitting still,” she said when asked about a typical day. “Even though I wanted to have many children and be a mom, I always imagined it kind of like Jane Goodall, traveling in the middle of the jungle somewhere. I didn’t imagine it in that true, traditional sense. I feel like I’m lacking in all the skills to be a traditional stay-at-home mom. I’m managing through it because the children are quite resilient, and they’re helping me, but I’m not good at it at all.”
