"MY FATHER'S INFIDELITY DID NOT GO UNNOTICED" — ANGELINA JOLIE WROTE A COLUMN ABOUT MOTHER'S DEATH
Actress's revelation for the New York Times
On the eve of Mother's Day, which are celebrated on may 10, Angelina Jolie wrote a very candid column for The New York Times, in which she shared warm memories of the closest person — her mother.
The actress admitted that her mother's death was a shock to her.
"I lost my mother when I was just over 30 years old. Looking back, I realize that her death completely changed me. It didn't happen suddenly, but I changed inside. Losing your mother's love and warm, tender hugs is like someone ripping off your blanket, " Angelina recalled.
According to her, Marcheline Bertrand could have become an outstanding actress, but dedicated her life to her family and children.
"After her death, I found a short film with her participation. She was good. She could have a perfect future in this industry, " Jolie shared.
In the article, Angie also spoke about her father's infidelity.
"My father's infidelity did not go unnoticed, destroying her ideal picture of family life. But she was a good mother. Her dreams to become an actress were shattered when she realized that at the age of 26, she was raising two children with a famous ex who cast a shadow over her life," Angelina writes.
Angelina Jolie's mother, French-American actress Marcheline Bertrand, died in 2007. She died at the age of 56 due to ovarian cancer. Afraid of repeating her mother's fate, Angelina decided to remove the female reproductive organs. In 2013, the actress underwent a mastectomy, and in 2015, an ovarioectomy.
