Angelina Jolie Gushes over Bond with Daughter Shiloh That Led to Her New Disney Movie

In a recent interview, Angelina Jolie confessed that her 14-year-old daughter Shiloh influenced her decision to do her new Disney movie, "The One and Only Ivan."

On August 17, acclaimed actress Angelina Jolie, 45, gave a new interview to Extra, where she gushed over the bond she has with Shiloh. She opened up about her reasons for starring in her most recent film, "The One and Only Ivan."

"Well, Shiloh read the book and loved the book and we started reading it together and talked about Ivan and why Ivan was so special," Jolie explained.

The award-winning actress believes that most people can relate to Ivan's character because of the different sides to his personality.

"At heart, the real Ivan was a painter," she continued. "He had this artistic side, he had this other self, and I think a lot of people can also relate to that."

During the interview, Jolie talked candidly about her real self, saying that only her children may truly know who she is, despite people's different perceptions of her.

Aside from Shiloh, Jolie is also a doting mother to her other children — Maddox, 19, Pax, 16, Zahara, 15, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 11.

The actress is frequently seen out and about with her children in public, a proof of how much she loves them.

Jolie has stayed active with several humanitarian causes.

TOGETHER IN QUARANTINE

In the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Jolie is also making sure to keep her children close while at home.

Earlier this year, Jolie's eldest son Maddox returned to the United States from his studies at Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea, after his semester was canceled because of the virus.

Back in April, Jolie said in an interview that she could not be happier about her son's choice of university.

According to her, as a family, they are all delighted they will have the chance to get to know South Korea even better through Maddox.
