    Angelina Jolie Appeared To Throw Shade At Brad Pitt After Being Asked About Living Abroad With Their Children

    In a recent interview with Harper's Bazaar, Angelina said she'll move abroad when her children are 18, adding: "Right now I'm having to base where their father chooses to live."

    Angelina Jolie just got candid about her personal life in a recent interview, and it's possible she just threw some shade at Brad Pitt over where they both choose to live.

    In 2016, after more than a decade together and two years of marriage, Angelina filed for divorce from Brad, reportedly citing "irreconcilable differences" and asking for "physical custody" of their children.

    Drama ensued as the couple engaged in lengthy divorce proceedings until they finally reached a custody agreement in December of last year. Angelina and Brad share six children: 18-year-old Maddox, 15-year-old Pax, 14-year-old- Zahara, 13-year-old Shiloh, and 11-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

    However, despite separating more than three years ago, the couple's divorce has yet to be finalised as they reportedly figure out a financial settlement.

    Gracing the final Harper's Bazaar issue of the year, Angelina opened up about the "visible and invisible scars" that the last four years have left on her body.

    "My body has been through a lot over the past decade, particularly the past four years, and I have both the visible and invisible scars to show for it," she said, appearing to reference her situation with Brad as well as her double mastectomy in 2013.

    She continued: "The invisible ones are harder to wrestle with. Life takes many turns. Sometimes you get hurt, you see those you love in pain, and you can’t be as free and open as your spirit desires."

    Despite a tough time in her personal life, Angelina credited her children for helping her find her "true self" again, admitting that she learns strength from them.

    "My children know my true self, and they have helped me to find it again and to embrace it," she said. "They have been through a lot. I learn from their strength."

    However, towards the end of the interview, Angelina referenced Brad directly for the first time, appearing to suggest that tensions might still be high between them.

    Opening up about wanting her children to explore the world, Angelina expressed her desire to live abroad. However, she noted that, because of where Brad chooses to live and their current custody agreement, she wouldn't be able to.

    "I would love to live abroad and will do so as soon as my children are 18," Angelina said. "Right now I'm having to base where their father chooses to live."

    Angelina also took the opportunity to discuss the changes in Hollywood following the #MeToo movement. However, it was clear she doesn't think enough has been done just yet.
