good evening! oh i know everyone already posted about angelina jolie gracing the cover of the new issue of vanity fair magazine but i couldn’t resist posting it here on popbytes – she looks stunning (as always) yesterday the web was filled to the brim with rumors that she had already given birth to her twins but apparently she hasn’t had ’em yet but i’m sure in the next few weeks we’ll be hearing the big announcement! below are a couple of choice quotes (i freakin’ love her) the full article will be available monday on the magazine’s website – this is one issue i must pick up! i had a great day today – i did a bunch of running around all over town getting ready to attend the 2008 MTV movie awards tomorrow – i’ll be covering the event via twitter – the easiest way to post quick updates to popbytes – it should be a blast (coldplay is performing) plus i have a brand new hairdo (i went platinum blond which i haven’t done in years – i love it!) and i picked up a way cute new outfit at energie/diesel for the festivities! popbytes over & out for tonight…xxoo

angelina jolie on being pregnant:
“i love it. it makes me feel like a woman. it makes me feel that all the things about my body are suddenly there for a reason. it makes you feel round and supple, and to have a little life inside you is amazing. also, i’m fortunate. i think some women have a different experience depend-ing on their partner. i think that affects it. i happen to be with somebody who finds pregnancy very sexy. so that makes me feel very sexy.”

angelina jolie on her international family:
“when i was growing up i wanted to adopt, because i was aware there were kids that didn’t have parents. it’s not a humanitarian thing, because i don’t see it as a sacrifice. it’s a gift. we’re all lucky to have each other. i look at shiloh–because, obviously, physically, she is the one that looks like brad and i when we were little–and say, ‘if these were our brothers and sisters, how much would we have known by the time we were six that it took into our 30s and 40s to figure out?’ i suppose i’m giving them the childhood i always wished i had.”

angelina jolie on shiloh’s birth:
“we were in this little hospital in africa when shi was born. i don’t think there was anybody else in the hospital. it was just a little cottage, the three of us. it ended up being the greatest thing…. i had a c-section and i found it fascinating. i didn’t find it a sacrifice and i didn’t find it a painful experience. i found it a fascinating miracle of what a body can do.”

angelina jolie on nannies:
“we don’t ever have anybody spend the night. we may have to adjust that when the next one comes. but we do have ladies that work with us, and they’re also from different cultures and back-grounds. one lady’s a vietnamese teacher–wonderful. one is of congolese descent from bel-gium. another is from the states and is really creative and does art programs.”

angelina jolie on artists as parents:
“artists raise their kids differently,” she said. “we communicate to the point where we probably annoy our children. we have art around the house, we have books, we go to plays, we talk. our focus is art and painting and dress-up and singing. it’s what we love. so i think you can see how artists in some way raise other artists.”
