ANGELINA Jolie graces the covers of British Vogue in an effortless manner, ageing finely as she posed in a Dior trench coat with one of her scripts in her hand during a photo shoot that was done at her Los Angeles home.
Jolie is posed on two covers shot by Craig McDean, wearing a Max Mara trench coat and skirt with Ralph Lauren shoes on the first, and wearing matching black turtleneck and pants with ballet flats while surrounded by her dogs on the second cover.
Styled and interviewed by the magazine’s editor-in-chief Edward Enninful, the actress spoke about her upcoming role as Thena in the Marvel Unvierse’s ‘Marvel’s The Eternals’ film, set to be released in 2022, starring alongside Salma Hayek and ‘Game of Thrones’ star Richard Madden.
Enninful spoke to the actress about her new role in the Marvel film, being hopeful during the pandemic, her book with Amnesty International, and her continuing activism for the rights of women and children in a remote interview at Jolie’s historic Hollywood villa (which was once home to iconic American filmmaker Cecile B. DeMille).
“I’m feeling that I’ve come through a few things. I’m trying to be hopeful. I think this is something we’ve all discovered through the pandemic”, Jolie said in the interview.
I think that like most families, we have had this bigger thing happening with the pandemic. But of course you also have these life markers…But birthdays go on, and I think that for many people, it’s made us all feel very human together. There’s something beautiful about that”, the actress added on spending time with her five children.
On her activism journey with Amnesty International and the United Nations Refugee Agency, the actress commented that while she loved her role as an ambassador, she had a love/hate relationship with the body of the UN – an organisation that she had been working with for two decades.
“I have a love-hate relationship with the UN. I love when I see practical solutions and protection for those in most need. I love to see people from around the world risking their lives for that”, she said.
“What I hate is how little focus governments have on actually solving the reasons people flee. I hate it when we don’t speak out and defend the rights of all people equally.
