The Oscar-winning actress graces the cover of the June issue of Elle magazine, where she talks candidly about her relationship with Brad Pitt and their six kids.
"I never thought I'd have children," she tells the mag. "I never thought I'd be in love, I never thought I'd meet the right person. Having come from a broken home -- you kind of accept that certain things feel like a fairy tale, and you just don't look for them."
"You get together and you're two individuals and you feel inspired by each other, you challenge each other, you complement each other, drive each other beautifully crazy," the 38-year-old says about Pitt. "After all these years, we have history -- and when you have history with somebody, you're friends in such a very real, deep way that there's such a comfort, and an ease, and a deep love that comes from having been through quite a lot together."
The brunette beauty, who looks stunning in the black-and-white photo spread, also discusses her famously wild past, admitting that her twenties were "misinterpreted as [me] wanting to be rebellious."
"In fact it wasn't a need to be destructive or rebellious -- it's that need to find a full voice, to push open the walls around you," she reveals. "You want to be free. And as you start to feel that you are being corralled into a certain life, you kind of push against it. It may come out very strange, it may be interpreted wrong, but you're trying to find out who you are."
The mother-of-six is now starring in upcoming flick, "Maleficent," with her youngest daughter Vivienne.
"For young Aurora, they needed a child who wouldn't be fazed by the Mistress of All Evil hissing “I don't like children” in her face," Jolie explains. “And my little Vivienne—we call her my shadow, because there's nothing I can do to shake her. I can be tired, I can be grumpy, I can be in a terrible mood, and she doesn't care… we couldn't really cast anybody else… Brad and I made the decision that we wouldn't keep [the children] from sets and the fun of making movies, but we wouldn't [glorify it either] -- we wouldn't make it a good thing or a bad thing. But I would really prefer they do something else."
