In case you missed the 2-hour-long Angelina Jolie interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, here are the highlights:
On what her two adopted children (Maddox, 4, and Zahara, 16 months) think of their sister, 3-week-old Shiloh:
“…when Z came home she was older, she was 7 months old, so for Mad it’s like having this tiny little pet he can just hold and look at. He’s great. Z’s a little jealous because she’s still a little girl.”
Although Jolie was happy to learn Ethiopian-born Zahara was not HIV-positive, she remembers one little boy who was not so lucky:
“I still have guilt. I still see his face and I always will. He was the first child I met who was about to die. He was by himself. I still to this day–even though I know the broader picture, you can’t save everybody–feel that I should have helicoptered him out and spent the money and done something and saved him, even though I probably couldn’t have.”
On feeling the same love for both her adopted children and Shiloh:
“I was kind of prepared to defend my other children. I was prepared to kind of give them extra love and attention, because something was going to be different about this new one.”
The actress says the salary she earns for making movies is, “ridiculous,” which is why she donates a third of her earning to humanitarian efforts.
