Angie's Tribute To Her Mother

| Filed under: Angelina JolieR.I.P.

This is truly touching.

Angelina Jolie and her brother James Haven created a video tribute to their mother as the third anniversary of her death approaches on January 27.

The video features home video of Marcheline Bertrand with her children looking very happy together on vacation in Hawaii back in 1981. Ange is just 6 years old in the video.

She looks just like her mother — may she rest in peace.

    She gets her knockout looks from her mother. May Marcheline be resting in peace!



  9. 9

    OK, that made me cry a little. Very sweet! RIP

    Not surprising Angelina takes such pride in her own motherhood now, she had a good example. What a gentle, warmhearted woman.



  11. 11

    Absolutely beautiful.



  12. 12

    Made me cry. It is so hard to lose your mother.



  13. 13

    Aloha from Oahu! That was beautiful



  14. 14

    * Exquisite timing…
    * Why would someone who is supposedly so private put something like this on youtube…the temple of the facile & the famewhoring
    * Imagine how gutted her mother felt when she discovered her boyfriend & her own daughter were fucking…no wonder Flangelina hasn't eaten anything since her mother's death
    * Brangeloonies this P.R. Spin Spin Bitch wouldn't piss on you if you were on fire so save your ALLCAPSPSYCHORANT

    This made me cry- R.I.P Marcheline :(



  16. 16

    it's weird looking at a celebrity and seeing her as a little child and knowing who she is today: the homewrecker



  17. 17

    Beautiful video and very touching. R.I.P



  18. 18

    It is so touching just to watch as her Mom's dances with Angie and her dress blows in the wind against the incoming tide - you can tell how much she loves her children and no doubt passed those same qualities on to Angelina - her Mom would be proud :o )



  19. 19

    Angie's Tribute is a wonderful opportunity to reflect. As a working mom, I often wonder how my son will remember me. Will his memory of me be a stressed out working mom, or will he remember the time we simply stopped to dance. Thanks for the reality check. Thanks for the reminder to stop and create memories that will sustain our children through difficult times. Truly beautiful and self-less.

    If I ever had one ounce of respect for Angelina J. Voigt, and I didn't really, it has been burned up by this crass display of media manipulation.



  21. 21

    Why do people feel the need to post rude comments on a post about someone's DECEASED MOTHER?! Have some respect. I am not an Angelina fan by any means, but this is a very touching video. It made me tear up a little.



  22. 22

    Wow, that was really nice. You can tell that Marcheline truly loved her children. And who really knows that Angie was doing her moms boyfriend? That is probably just a sick rumor.

    lovely. She is beautiful like her mother was. Made me misty.
    why do all have to continue to call her a homewrecker and hope for misery for her? grow the ef up. It took 3 people to end one relationship and start a new one, not just one. She has grown into a lovely woman and mother. I wish for happiness to her family-it's nice they have sweet memories of their mom. If I had video of my late mom, I would also post it to youtube so people who knew us could enjoy it.



  24. 24

    Re: blacklily.of.the.valley
    because it's the anniversary of Marcheline Bertrand's death ?

    I agree with @mullet12 : It made me reflect!

    This video is truly touching, gentle and simply beautiful!



  25. 25

    Where's the you tube video of her ramming her tongue down her brother's throat.



  26. 26

    I don't get it. Why would she be so public about making a tribute and yet so private about other things? It seems a bit weird to me.



  27. 27

    Re: alfabravo – You know, you look so stupid believing everything that Star Mag says! Guess you did it too!



  28. 28

    What the fuck is so touching about that! Most everyone has old video or movies from a beach vacation. Not sure why one needs to share private moments with everyone else. It is so egotistical of her. So much for her being a private person.



  29. 29

    flower power!



  30. 30

    Oops. There is a break-up in the works for sure! No way Angelina would release this unless it was part of a marketing ploy to garner sympathy.



  31. 31

    My girl is a class act, she always keeps her private family stuff strictly private. So what's with these vulgar Hollywood types? Keep it all in the family you celebrity freaks!



  32. 32

    Just wanted to share that on the Huff Post, Andrew Morton says that the rumors of her sleeping with her mothers boyfriend aren't true and he won't be making any such accusations. And I think the video was just released out there because she misses her mother so much. Why wouldn't you want to share such beautiful moments? BTW, Angie looks JUST like her mother. Wow, it's freaky.



  33. 33

    So over the weekend news leaks out that papers have been drawn up for their split, and by Tuesday, Ang is workin' the "Tube" with personal videos of her mother even though her mother died some time ago.

    Ok…I lost my mom when I was 13 years old, so I *get* the pain that she feels. However, I think this is a diversionary tactic. Clearly there is something going on with Brad and Angelina's relationship (where there's smoke, there's fire)….she's starting the sympathy tour 2010.



  35. 35

    wow, this almost made me cry.



  36. 36

    Re: This.is.my.side.job – Dude you have some major problems.



  37. 37

    I lost my mother around the time Angelina did, and ironically, I am the same age as she and had recently given birth to my 1st child. My mother was my best friend, who was strong and raised me without the help of my father, who left our family. I know you all have your opinions, but no one should disrespect the love of a child who has lost his or her mother. My mom died less than 2 weeks after my 31st birthday, at the age of 55, and it still devastates me to this day. There are children that will never know their grandmother, as my son will never know his. So show some class and respect for once people.



  38. 38

    @ wiseone.. a few years is not "some time" when you are dealing with the loss of someone so close to you. I have moved on from my mother's death, but there is not a day that goes by that I don't think of her, or perhaps tear up at a memory. Your statement shows little wisdom, and no empathy whatsoever.



  39. 39

    What a beautiful little video



  40. 40

    That's so sad. R.I.P. :(



  41. 41

    This is so beautiful. Angelina is such an amazing woman and she truly touches my heart. This is why I idolize her. So sad but so beautiful. Rest in peace, Marcheline.



  42. 42

    wow she does look like her mom!! that was very touching and sweet!



  43. 43

    Re: pie107 – well you have one ugly baby!
    ooh, burn!



  44. 44

    I don't see the resemblance but she must miss her mother terribly.



  45. 45

    My mother never really liked me (still doesn't). I have been blessed with two beautiful daughters whom I love more than life itself. This video breaks my heart and makes me happy. What a wonderful mother she must have been for them to miss her so much and remember her so beautifully. What joy she got from her two children.



  46. 46

    Perezizmyboy, I'm saying timing is everything.



  47. 47

    Agreed, the timing of putting this out ( for someone who is always so private) seems alot like distraction from the buzz over the split.

    oh blacklily, your comments are like a soothing zephyr in a sahara of sycophantism

    That was so incredibly sweet, and made me cry…
    What a loving and fun woman she seemed to have been.
    That was special, thank you for sharing that.

    Re: alfabravo – One does what one can in such trying times as these…



  51. 51

    That's the SAME song and rendition I dedicated to my mum! Israel Kamakawiwo'Ole! Angelina is close to my age, and lost her mom at the same age. whenever I see rainbows, I know it's my mum saying Hello.



  52. 52

    omg tears….they really look alot like their mother, she was so beautiful



  53. 53

    OMG made me cry. Absolutely beautiful. Loving. She looks so much like Angelina!!!

    54

    Angelina and James did a lovely tribute for their beautiful mother. My mother recently passed away and it is something you never really get over.



  55. 55

    Aww, so sweet. Rip



  56. 56

    Very sweet of them to release it.



  57. 57

    Ya, she keeps her relationship/family life private, she pretty much has to because of all the tabloid junk. That really doesn't have anything to do with a very touching tribute to her beloved mother.

  58. edna says – reply to this


    58

    oh no! It really is over with AJ and BP . . . this is exactly what AJ did when she and Billy bob broke up. Expect more.

    May her Mother rest in peace



  59. 59

    I am not the biggest Angelina fan but. That was very touching and sad. RIP….



  60. 60

    I lost my father just 3 months ago, I miss him so much, mothers are sacred too. Beautiful tribute. RIP Marcheline y descansa en paz papa.



  61. 61

    =(



  62. 62

    big fucking whoop!

    you can pay anyone less than $200 and they can make one for you in 2 days if you give them the photos and music. i did it for my sister who passed away in 2008. it's a nice remembrance of someone you lost but NOT newsworthy.

    perez, you'd post a story about Angelina blinking, you Brangeloonie!



  63. 63

    Those of you who have your mothers, be grateful. Even if you don't get always get along or have issues with each other, that is normal and part of becoming a separate person. Your mother isn't perfect and neither are you. Give her a call and a hug while you still can. I wish I could.



  64. 64

    I can only wish my son recalls his childhood memories as these two children do. She must have been a wonderful mother and beautiful soul. Famous daughter aside, she was a mommy..and had a lovely little family.



  65. 65

    So sad =( Made me tear up a bit



  66. 66

    Very touching.



  67. 67

    Beautiful tribute, but VERY unAngie a thing to do… so it seems. She appears VERY private. Could someone else have done this?



  68. 68

    Why don't you get your head out of Angelina Jolie's ass?



  69. 69

    I DON'T CARE WHY U ALL *THINK* THEY RELEASED THIS VIDEO FOOTAGE.

    ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT, THAT LOOKS LIKE 1 LOVING & DEVOTED MOM RAISING HER KIDS ON HER OWN.
    VERY TOUCHING.

    AND LOSING A LOVING PARENT, ESP. THE ONLY ONE U HAVE, IS A PAIN THAT I HOPE U ALL DON'T EXPERIENCE ANYTIME SOON.

    RIP MARCHELINE.



  70. 70

    It's lovely that they made a tribute video but…. why put out a tribute video bringing attention on yourself when all anyone is asking at the moment is are brad and ange together or not? Why not issue a statement while you're at it ange.



  71. 71

    Re: edna – elaborate????



  72. 72

    I listen to this song all the time since my grandma passed away four years ago from cancer. We took alot of family trips to hawaii too. I was very surprised they used it. What a very pretty woman



  73. 73

    Very poignant and beautiful :)

    Just a small rant: for those who keep calling her a homewrecker- for god's sake, why do the MEN in these situations always get out scot free with no one labelling them manwhores. HE was the one that was married and chose to leave his wife, she didn't wreck a home: HE did! If they really did have an affair he should have been man enough to not get himself in that situation and should have been faithful to his wife. I just think ppl need to stop labelling her a home wrecker when Brad clearly left of his own free will.
    *Steps down off soapbox*. :)



  74. 74

    beautiful



  75. 75

    Lovely and touching
    keep strong angelina.



  76. 76

    She's nothing like her mother. Her mother was beautiful!



  77. 77

    Beautiful video…I miss my dad too…he was a good guy.
    They are stuck with that schlep of a father and Im stuck with my joke of a mother.

    Only the good die young.

    It hurts me to think she suffered when it looks like she brought a great deal of joy into others lives.

    A&J thanks for sharing…

    It is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.



  78. 78

    Love it!!! It's such a beautiful video, it's amazing the resemblance between Angie and her mom, you can tell she was a wonderful mother that love her kids a lot, as a mom i would love my kids to remember me in such a lovely way once i'm gone, and despite Angie past life she has grown up to be such a wonderful role model, terrific mother, human being, she's truly an inspiration and now we know where she's gotten from



  79. 79

    That was truly beautiful and touching…my thoughts are with you angelina.



  80. 80

    Wow, Angie looks just like her mother..so sweet



  81. 81

    I just cried my freaking eyes out OMG what a BEAUTIFUL family, shizz I hope Angelina- coming from that(-; adopts the World
    =)
    we love you



  82. 82

    Very Nice. Cried my eyes out watching it. I do wish James and Angelina all the happiness in the world.



  83. 83

    What a beautiful video…Angelina looks a lot like her mother when she was younger. James, Angelina and their mom seemed to have such an intense connection as a family. It must have been so hard for Angelina to loose her mother…I have read some things about her and she appears to have been an amazing mother for James and Angelina.



  84. 84

    WTF - I can't watch it. Message says it's on it's way back to the private family archives. That sucks. Today is the anniversary - why wouldn't they let us watch it? Oh well. Some of the comments on the youtube site were just as insulting as some of the ones on here - maybe moreso. It's sad that a family can't remember their dead loved one in peace. People should learn how to be respectful.
