Angelina Jolie travels the world for her film career — and she is famous for bringing her brood of six along with her! But how does she do it? Check out what other celeb mommies have said about balancing an international career and a family!
Angelina Jolie‘s life seems to be really overwhelming at times. She has six kids, a huge career, and a famous life partner to boot. She and Brad Pitt are seen constantly with Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne — and always in a place far away from their home in Hollywood! From Brignol to New Orleans to Venice, Angelina is a mom on the move.
See what other famous moms have said about taking their kids around the world for work!
- Katie Holmes talked to Parade Magazine in 2007 about traveling the world with her daughter Suri, 4. “We don’t like to be away from her,” Katie confessed. “She’s very aware. We take her to the park in each city and walk around. This summer, when Tom was working in Germany, she’d wake up and say, ‘Hello, Berlin.’”
- “I think I find in my own life, it’s a terrible conflict, when you have children, to leave them for any length of time to go to work … I never actually leave my children,” Mira Sorvino has said of daughter Mattea Angel, 5 and sons Johnny, 3 and Holden 10 mos. ”They always come with me. But I still despair at walking away from them for a long day of work … So it’s a real balancing act.”
- In 2009, Kate Beckinsale opened up about being an actress and a mommy. “My daughter [Lily Mo Sheen, 11] comes with me everywhere … I don’t leave her behind. But it is hard. I mean, I think any working mother will tell you that what kind of falls by the wayside, you know, are the hours of sleep that you wish you had, and all that … I try to give her a normal a life as possible, with a working mom. In every way, including being there to put her in the bath. Which is probably very annoying for directors! Like, I have to go home now, my daughter needs a bath!”
- Julia Roberts brought her three kids — twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, 5 and son Henry, 2 — with her when she filmed Eat, Pray Love! “It was quite a huge undertaking. It was a little bit daunting, dragging three little kids around the world, but well worth it,” Julia said to Women’s Wear Daily.”
