Mother, producer, writer, director, actress, activist, UN ambassador, former wild child–the list of roles Angelina Jolie has fulfilled goes on and on.
There was one role she wasn't prepared for, however, which the actress revealed in the March issue of British Vogue. “I feel like I’m lacking in all the skills to be a traditional stay-at-home mom,” Jolie confessed.
The 45-year-old shares six children between the ages of 12 and 19 with ex-husband Brad Pitt, but even though she "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,” she said, adding, “I didn’t imagine it in that true, traditional sense.”
Luckily, Jolie said, her kids are good at taking care of themselves and helping her out as well, but there's one thing that keeps it all together: "Well, I love them. I feel like we’re such a team,” she said. “It may sound clichéd, but you love and you try, and even if you burn the eggs, that doesn’t matter in the end.”
It's been a long, winding road to where Angelina Jolie is now. Check out a timeline of the crazy life and career achievements of everyone's favorite Lara Croft.
