Angelina Jolie: "I'm Not Pregnant" or "Adopting at the Moment"
Three-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox Jolie-Pitt can rest assured: They will remain the babies of the family for the time being. Just ask their mom, Angelina Jolie.
"I'm not pregnant," Jolie, 36, tells the new issue of Vanity Fair. I'm not adopting at the moment," adds the star, who has six kids (three biological, three adopted) with love Brad Pitt.
The Oscar-winning actress sat down with the magazine to chat up her directorial and screenwriting debut In the Land of Blood and Honey -- which might complicate her relationship with Pitt, 47.
"Brad thinks I'm going to be a nightmare," she jokes. "I had such a good experience he thinks I'm going to be impatient with directors, which I already am. I get impatient with people working on a film that have their head in their hands like it's the most complicated thing in the world."
But the typically confident superstar admits that she freaked ou getting behind the camera and putting her name on the screenplay byline. "I've never felt more exposed. My whole career, I’ve hidden behind other people's words," she explains. "Now it’s me talking. You feel ridiculous when you get something wrong."
The star feverishly wrote the script for the Bosnian War romance while feeling under the weather -- and separated from the twins plus Shiloh, 5, Zahara, 6, Pax, 7, and Maddox, 10.
"I had the flu. I had to be quarantined from the children for two days. I was in the attic of a house in France. I was isolated, pacing. I don't watch TV and I wasn't reading anything. So I started writing. I went from the beginning to the end. I didn't know any other way."
She got the thumbs up on her screenplay from Pitt himself. "He called and said, 'You know, honey, it's not that bad.'"
And her man remained "so supportive" throughout the project, she gushes. "He'd come in and say what he liked or what he didn't understand. Like any woman, I would listen to most of it and fight a few things...It's hard to separate the person that loves you from the critic, so I don't think he's a fair judge."
