Angelina Jolie Thinks Privileged Women Aren’t in the Position to Complain

Say what you will about her, but Angelina is endlessly more down-to-earth and with a more realistic view point that many of her peers, all you have to do is look at Gwyneth Paltrow – who lives in a bland designer world where spoons cost a few grand – for proof. Angelina thinks women who have plenty of cash to splash on looking after their kids, can’t really complain because they can give their children great lives and everything they need, while so many other moms can’t afford to do the same:

“I actually feel that women in my position, when we have all at our disposal to help us, shouldn’t complain. Consider all the people who really struggle and don’t have the financial means, don’t have the support, and many people are single raising children. That’s hard.”

Angelina adds that if she thinks she is working too hard, she makes sure to make time to be with her family, and is glad that she is now able to do that:

“When I feel I’m doing too much, I do less, if I can. And that’s why I’m in a rare position where I don’t have to do job after job. I can take time when my family needs it.”

The Maleficent actress comments that she can also work her schedule to suit her at this point in her career:

“I can say I can only get into the (editing) room after the kids are in school, and I have to be back for dinner, and they’re coming for lunch.”
