Angelina Jolie is lashing out at celebrity moms like Gwyneth Paltrow who complain about how difficult it is to be a working parent. Angie, a mother of six, admits that Hollywood moms have it so much easier than everyday moms and have no room to say otherwise.
Angelina Jolie, 38, is tired of hearing other celebrity moms complain about how hard it is to be a working mom. The actress and mother of six admits that she knows how easy she has it, especially since she does not have to worry about feeding her children, or providing them with appropriate health care. Are you tired of hearing celeb moms complain about how difficult they have it?
Angeline Jolie Wants Hollywood Moms To Stop Complaining
Here’s what the mother of two said:
“I think it’s different when you have an office job, because it’s routine and, you know, you can do all the stuff in the morning and then you come home in the evening. When you’re shooting a movie, they’re like, ‘We need you to go to Wisconsin for two weeks,’ and then you work 14 hours a day and that part of it is very difficult. I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as, of course there are challenges, but it’s not like being on set.”
Well, Angelina disagrees, and she made sure to let everyone know her stance on the topic during an interview with the New York Post. Angie knows how lucky she is, and she credits that not only to her career, but also to her incredible support system.
“I’m not a single mom with two jobs trying to get by every day. I have much more support than most people, most women in this world. And I have the financial means to have a home and health care and food.”
Well said, Angelina! While actresses may travel a lot and work odd hours, they know that their children are well cared for no matter where they are.
Angelina Jolie: Lucky Enough To Control Her Own Schedule
Angelina has six kids and a fiancé to care for — with a family that size, if she’s not complaining, than no celebrity should be!
As a successful actress, she has the ability to adjust her schedule around her family. Not many working mothers are that fortunate.
“When I feel I’m doing too much, I do less, if I can. And that’s why I’m in a rare position where I don’t have to do job after job. I can take time when my family needs it,” she revealed in her interview.
Thanks for speaking out Angelina! Maybe some celebs will realize how lucky they are that they are able to provide SO much for their kids.
