As reported in an article published by Closer Weekly, actress Angelina Jolie admitted that she loved aging for the simple fact that she looked more and more like her mother with each passing day.

The actress will turn 43 years old on June 4, 2018. Jolie added that aging connoted that she was alive and living a fulfilling life. Although she confessed that there are some superficial things about aging that annoy her.

For instance, she would prefer not to have the random dark spots while undergoing pregnancy. But the things she liked about aging were not the appearance or the structure. It was about seeing her mother's image on her face.

Jolie's mother, Marcheline Bertrand, lost her life to ovarian cancer at her age of 56 on January 27, 2007. Bertrand was well-known for her philanthropy and her daughter carried forward her legacy.

The resemblance between Jolie and her mother is evident, especially as Jolie gets older. She intends to follow her mother's footsteps of embracing her natural beauty.

Jolie admitted that, just like her mother, she prefers minimal makeup.

"My daughter asked if I had any makeup? I gave them my makeup, but I wear one color red, and I have black eyeliner and mascara — I have the most boring makeup kit."

Jolie had taken preventive measures for cancer in 2013 by opting for a double mastectomy after it was revealed by genetic testing that she had a defective BRCA1 gene.

The medical professionals had estimated that Jolie had an 87% chance of developing breast cancer and 50% of developing ovarian cancer.

According to New York Times, Jolie expressed that the decision to undergo mastectomy was not an easy one but she was glad to do it. The procedure dropped her chances of developing cancer to 5%.
