"I felt broken": Angelina Jolie told how she experienced difficult moments in life

45-year-old Angelina Jolie does not often communicate with the press and shares her personal experiences in interviews. But yesterday, the actress made a small exception in a conversation with Entertainment Tonight. The reason for the conversation was a new film with her participation-Taylor Sheridan's thriller "Those who Wish me Dead", which will premiere on May 14 on HBO Max.

Recall that in the new film, Jolie plays a lifeguard and parachutist Hannah, who is struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder after experiencing a tragedy at work. She blames herself for what happened, but eventually finds strength and overcomes life's obstacles. This story was very close to Angelina, as she experienced similar emotions and felt broken, like her heroine.

We all have periods in our lives when we feel broken, and I did. There were moments that made me feel ... you know, it's hard to talk about it in too much detail, but just depressed or broken. This has happened many times in my life. When my mother passed away from cancer in 2007... When you feel like you just want to hide under the covers or don't know what's left in you. But you have the ability to cope, and I encourage anyone to do so. You're not a movie actor, but whatever. Go somewhere, look inside yourself. Try something you've never done before and try to rediscover that power within you,

Jolie said.

Earlier, the actress admitted that the role interested her in the human story that was close to her.

I am attracted to people who have experienced something hard that has broken them, but then they find their way forward and overcome it. As an actress, I really like to play such people. My character really healed me, because you just get smashed to pieces and then you get up again,

Angelina pointed out.

In a new interview, the actress also admitted that today she finds a way to maintain her inner strength, benefiting others.

That's what I'm trying to tell my kids. You can live as you want, but at the end of the day, ask yourself, " What is your contribution? What is your contribution to the benefit of others?",

Jolie said.

The actress also spoke about working with her young partner on the set, 14-year-old Finn Little, who plays the role of a boy hiding from criminals. The actress admitted that it was a little difficult for her to downplay her maternal instincts (according to the plot, her heroine has no children).

I'm not even sure if she likes children. It was a constant admonition from the director, saying, stop being like this, you're too nice to him, you're too sensitive,

Jolie shared.

Recall that the shooting of the film took place back in 2019, three years after Angelina filed for divorce from Brad Pitt. They have six children together: 19-year-old Maddox, 17-year-old Pax, 16-year-old Zahara, who are adopted children, as well as 14-year-old Shiloh and 12-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, who are the couple's biological children.

The divorce process of Jolie and Pitt has not yet been settled, as the former spouses can not reach unity on the issue of custody of their children. Recently, the actress also hinted that the divorce has severely traumatized her.
