The INSIDER Summary:
- Angelina Jolie says the past year has been difficult since she filed for divorce from husband Brad Pitt.
- In an interview with the Sunday Telegraph, she said she didn’t want to be single.
- “There’s nothing nice about it,” she said.
The single life isn’t always easy, even for Angelina Jolie.
In an interview with the Sunday Telegraph, the 42-year-old actress opened up about her split from husband Brad Pitt and her struggles with being single.
“I don’t enjoy being single. It’s not something I wanted,” she said. “There’s nothing nice about it. It’s just hard. Sometimes maybe it appears I am pulling it all together, but really I am just trying to get through my days.”
The actress, who has six kids with Pitt, filed for divorce in September 2016 for “irreconcilable differences” after a two-year marriage and 12-year relationship.
“Emotionally it’s been a very difficult year, and I have had some other health issues. So my health is something I have to monitor,” she added.
She’s currently doing press for her new film, “First They Killed My Father,” which she directed, produced and co-wrote, but is taking time to reflect on her life and make fun for herself.
“I think now I need to rediscover a little bit of the old me,” she said. “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 the children. And it’s been a very good time to absorb and develop and grow.”
She continued: “But maybe now that my kids are growing up, I am starting to realize 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 am going back. It may be time.”
The actress has said before in an interview on Good Morning America that they “will always be a family.”
