Angelina Jolie says being a single mother is difficult, but she’s not getting back with Brad Pitt

You’d never expect someone like Angelina Jolie to open up on her private life, but then again, this is a strange world. The Oscar winner filed for divorce from Brad Pitt last September, and has, for the most part, kept quiet about her personal life. Apart from an interview where she revealed she suffered from Bell’s Palsy, she didn’t go into a lot of detail about her separation from her partner of 12 years. Recently, rumours were rife that the A-list former couple were getting back together, since both hadn’t moved forward in a year with their divorce.

Angelina Jolie is putting those rumours to rest for good. In an extremely rare, rarer than a blue moon, interview with the Sunday Telegraph, she spoke her truth. Angie and the kids are currently promoting her film, First They Killed My Father about the crisis in Cambodia. The ethereal beauty said, “I don’t enjoy being single. It’s not something I wanted. There’s nothing nice about it. It’s just hard.”

“Sometimes it appears I’m putting it all together, but really I’m just trying to get through my days. Emotionally, it’s been a very difficult year and I have had some health issues. So my health is something I have to monitor.”

So it looks like Angelina Jolie is using 2017 to focus more on herself and her health for the first time in a long time. “I think now I need to rediscover a bit of the old me. I think we lose our way a bit. I have had a lot happen in my life, from certain people passing to health issues to raising children.”

“And it’s been a very good time to absorb and develop and grow. But maybe now that my kids are growing up I am starting to realise that my own sense of play has been put on hold for a while. And maybe them hitting their teens is going to bring out a little more fun in Mom… so maybe I’m going back. It may be time.”

Doesn’t sound like good news for Brad Pitt!
