Angelina Jolie: ‘I don’t have a lot of friends’

Just been browsing the web and saw this. I think this is important. If this fem-fabulista doesn’t have girlfriends to pal around with, what good is saving all those starving orphans? Seriously, every woman needs grrl-friends, no matter where in the world they live. Lunch, gossip, mall scrums…it is our genetic right. This had to be one of the saddest articles I have ever seen.

It made me glad I am just me.

and gee, I wished I was her, not any more

It probably isn’t the easiest thing in the world, having six kids, a career that takes you all over the globe and looks that might be intimidating to the other moms at school drop-off. Which might be why Angelina Jolie’s admission that she doesn’t have a ton of girlfriends might not qualify as shocking news.

The actress, currently doing press to promote her directorial debut, “In the Land of Blood and Honey” told Marie Clare, “Well, I have a few girlfriends. I just … I stay at home a lot. I don’t do a lot with them, and I’m very homebound.”

That’s not to say that Jolie has no one to talk to: her slightly famous husband Brad Pitt serves as her primary sounding board. “I talk to my family,” she says. “I talk to Brad … But I don’t know, I don’t have a lot of friends I talk to. He really is the only person I talk to.”
