Angelina Jolie is ‘very happy & content with her life, focused on her kids & work’

People Magazine had a suspicious update about Angelina Jolie. Suspicious because there’s always a lot of sh-t happening behind the scenes these days, especially with all of the Chateau Miraval lawsuits and countersuits, nevermind Angelina and Brad Pitt’s long-running divorce dramas. The most recent headlines were about Shiloh dropping “Pitt” from her legal name, and Zahara and Vivienne doing the same in their private lives. With all of that personal and legal drama though, it’s easy to forget that Angelina is having a great year professionally. She just won a Tony Award as a producer on The Outsiders. She wrapped on Pablo Larrain’s Maria – a Maria Callas bio-pic – last year, and there are tons of rumors that Maria will premiere at the Venice Film Festival, and that Angelina will be part of an Oscar campaign. So… that’s what I think this People Mag piece is about:

Angelina Jolie is having quite the year. The Oscar-winning actress recently came off of an exciting night at the 2024 Tony Awards, where her new Broadway show The Outsiders nabbed best new musical, among other awards. The show is a family affair for Jolie, 49, who served as co-producer on the musical alongside her 15-year-old daughter Vivienne, who assisted on the production.

“Angie seems very happy and content with her life,” a source close to Jolie tells PEOPLE. “She’s focused on her kids and work. She’s involved in projects that she truly cares and feels passionate about.”

Adds the insider of Jolie (who also shares daughters Zahara, 19, and Shiloh, 18, plus sons Maddox, 22, Pax, 20, and Knox, 15, with ex Brad Pitt), “She’s very proud of her kids.”

I hope she is happy and content – after years of legal shenanigans, she seems to have a good team of lawyers helping her deal with all of Brad’s bullsh-t. Atelier Jolie is up and running, although I still think she should hire some managers and money people. And who knows, Maria could be a huge step in the Jolie-as-Actress renaissance. Her kids are getting older and she can travel more for work… come on, Angelina, take more acting gigs!

Angelina was also out with Knox over the weekend – he’s now taller than his mom.

    You can’t keep a good person down. So proud of Angie, she never got into the mud with Brad the liar.
    She must be so proud of the children.

  2. Jan says:

    Angie always has managers and money people. With the amount of litigation Brad has put her through and not paying child support, she would be bankrupt by now, if she didn’t have a financial planner.

  3. Eva says:

    You can see that she is genuinely happy. She’s just been glowing lately and she deserves to be happy. The Jolie Kids too.

    I’m happy she’s doing well, but I do wish she’d eat more. Her thinness doesn’t look healthy to me. Is that a way some people deal with stress? By not eating much? Why can’t I have that problem? When my husband saw her present at the Tony’s, he said, ‘Is she going to break?’

    • Katy says:

      Can we not do this? Do you really need to comment on her body in this way?

    • sara says:

      you and your husband are bodyshamers btw.

    • SIde Eye says:

      She’s always been thin, that’s just her body type. But also, she’s a cancer survivor and that takes its toll on the body. Most of the people I know that have been through it come out on the other side thinner. Either way, she doesn’t owe us an explanation.

      It’s hard having to undo all the damage my mom’s generation has done to us regarding body types and weight. The nonstop commenting on bodies (and it’s only for women unless a man gained 300 lbs) is inappropriate. IMO it’s just another way we oppress women. Big boobs? What a slut! Thin? Omg eat a sandwich! Gained weight? Well she let herself go! And so on. It’s to the point where my sister and I used to have a secret drinking game when my mom said anything negative about a woman’s body (or a child’s body FFS!) at the table.

      I’m not around my mom anymore but omg the concern trolling about my weight. The last time I saw her I had lost a bunch (stress related) and she just wouldn’t let it go. FFS lady ask how I am doing!

      I’ve been guilty of it myself with Kate. There are plenty of things to focus on besides her weight! I’ve decided I’m just going to stop commenting on bodies period.

      • Joy says:

        She never had cancer. She had her DNA tested and she carried a cancer causing gene (her mother died from the cancer caused by the gene) and she opted for double mastectomy and hysterotomy.

        *Edit to add she had mutation of the BRCA1 gene

      • SIde Eye says:

        Thanks Joy I stand corrected. I guess the point I was making was she has had some health issues and you’re right not cancer, but surgery for that mutation and in fact several surgeries. Throw in Brad’s physical, financial, emotional, and legal abuse – omg I would be a shadow of myself. She’s a strong lady to deal with all of it. Happy to see her thriving.

    • Byzant says:

      Oh get bent with this body shaming toxic nonsense

      • Pajala says:

        When someone is so thin that they appear unhealthy, there is no shame in expressing concern. We know that Angelina at one point used heroin and was also a cutter. Both of those behaviors can be associated with an eating disorder. You are shamers~ comment shamers~ for calling out someone expressing a legitimate concern.

      • Isabella says:

        Please stop the concern trolling, Enough, And way to go back decades to smear her with your concern.

      • sara says:

        lol at legitimate concern. your comments about her body is nothing but bodyshaming, you dont actually know her therefore your “concern” wont do anything as it wont be reaching her. You’re just commenting things like this because it makes you feel better about yourself and superior to her.

  5. Leah says:

    It’s nice to see something in People that doesn’t reference her ex.

    And she is having an amazing year professionally! I hope Maria come out soon. Bio pics aren’t usually my thing, but it sounds really interesting and I’ve always liked AJ as an actress for her depth of characters.

    • ArtHistorian says:

      It is a Pablo Larrain movie, which makes me interested. His move about Jackie Kennedy was great and I also liked his movie about Princess Diana as a sort of horror piece.

  6. LadyE says:

    Knox and Shiloh look so much alike! Also, dang those Jolie lip genes are strong lol. I’m so happy for Angie. She seems like she’s doing really well and her kids seem super well adjusted and like they have the best relationship with her. I’m sure they are all super protective of their mom, but I love that they aren’t protecting “fragile, broken” Angie, but instead getting to participate in all the really cool stuff she’s doing! On that note, I don’t know why but I’d love to see Angie throw on her aviator glasses and take some of the kids up while she pilots : )

  7. Jay says:

    This is smart for her team to hype the “year of Angelina!”. As a plus, she shouldn’t have to worry about avoiding her ex on red carpets this season if she goes for awards ( and I hope she does!).

  8. therese says:

    I too am team Angelina: go bees!!!!! Her evolution as a person is testimony that we choose who we want to be. I think she is a remarkable person, and another person(s) like the Sussexes who go about trying to do good for others. Her kids are a tribute to her. I’m just going to say, though, that the dress that wore her to the Tony awards looked like there was bad stage direction and one of the older curtains fell on her in disarray.

  9. Aeris says:

    LOL…. Stevie Wonder could see through that lie. Angelina is so miserable and orbit-the-earth-on-broomstick mad that Brad has moved on that she can hardly stand existence. Some serious i want revenge vibes coming from that woman at all times. She wants Brad’s balls in a vice. I have 7 words for that ang — you lose em how you get em. And I don’t like fangirl stars so i am not team brad or ang in this instance but I tend to lean towards Brad due to how she is unfairly smearing his image with lies and using his kids against him. I hope Brad learns from this. I am not even psychic and I could have told him this is how it would turn out getting involved with that woman. lol

    • Byzant says:

      Hahaha hi Brad. He’s a violent abuser who was violent to his children and now can’t stop pathetic paid for relationships. But sure Angelina with her professional sucess and focus on their children’s wellbeing is jealous of his pathetic drunk abusive arsenal

      What lies-his abuse is fully documented and none of his children want anything to do with him due to it.

      He’s a pathetic

    • bisynaptic says:

      LOL You must be new, here… 😂

  10. Monica says:

    Every time I see Angie articles, I’m just delighted her kids are still holding her hand. One of my kids, who is now 8, just spontaneously grabbed my hand on a walk today and I spent the whole time not being able to pay attention to what he was saying because I was drinking in the feeling of his little hand in mine. Kids are truth tellers and hers seem to say she’s a solid and safe place for them, which is all you could hope to be for your own kids. I wish her well.
