An­gelina Jolie loves get­ting older

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The 40-year-old ac­tress re­vealed she has no fears about ageing and wel­comes get­ting older be­cause many women in her fam­ily died young. An­gelina - who un­der­went a pre­ven­tive dou­ble mas­tec­tomy two years ago af­ter learn­ing she had an 87 per cent risk of de­vel­op­ing breast can­cer - ex­plained: “I turned 40 this year and I am so happy. Most women in my fam­ily start to get sick and start dy­ing in their 40s and I am go­ing to be very happy to be­come 50 and 60. I love get­ting older.” An­gelina’s mother died of ovar­ian can­cer in 2007 at the age of 56 and her grand­mother passed away from the same dis­ease at 45. And An­gelina in­sisted that fam­ily, in­clud­ing hus­band Brad Pitt and chil­dren Mad­dox, 14, Pax, 11, Za­hara, 10, Shiloh, nine, and seven-year-old twins Vivi­enne and Knox, is the most im­por­tant thing in her life, tak­ing prece­dence over her ca­reer. She told the Sun­day Tele­graph: “I’m now do­ing films that re­ally mat­ter to me and I can re­ally en­joy with my chil­dren. If some­thing in­con­ve­niences my chil­dren too much, or takes me away from them, I won’t do it. When I was younger I was test­ing my­self and ques­tion­ing every­thing but now it’s less about that and more about th­ese are the years of my life with my fam­ily.”
