In a recent video conference for Time, Jolie, 44, talked with California Surgeon General Dr. Nadine Burke Harris. The "Maleficent" star is also a contributing editor for the magazine.

"I think it is so important that people hear that," Jolie said. "To love each other, check in with each other. Be there, be a support group, keep your eyes open whether you are a teacher or a friend."

"PAY MORE ATTENTION"

"I really do hope people hear this, and they do reach out, and they do pay more attention," she added, "and they are not sitting in a moment when they think, 'Well maybe, but it's not my business.'"

The award-winning actress continued that since children aren't going to school right now, "teachers can't see the bruises and people aren't identifying what is happening within some homes."

Harris then asked Jolie what prompts her to keeps on standing "as a witness and to not look away" and also what she does for "self-care."

AWARE OF WHAT WAS HAPPENING

Jolie replied that there was a moment in her life when she turned out to be increasingly mindful of what was going on around the world and that she began to "open up" and hope she was being helpful.

The actress said that she could not be happier about her son's choice of university.

In an interview with DongA Daily, the actress said that she could not be happier about her son's choice of university, which is closed at the moment due to COVID-19.

Jolie added that as a family, they are all delighted that they will have the chance to become acquainted with South Korea even better through Maddox, and with him, during his studies.

The longtime humanitarian is also a doting mother to her other children — Pax, 16, Zahara, 15, Shiloh, 13, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 11.
