Angelina Jolie Makes Rare Comments About Her Late Mother

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie‘s latest project is inspired by her late mother, Marcheline Bertrand.

As you may know, the actress and humanitarian — who passed away back in 2007 after a long battle with cancer — raised Angelina and her brother, James Haven, on her own in Los Angeles after leaving their father, husband Jon Voight.

While promoting her new fragrance with Guerlain, the 41-year-old opened up about growing up under her mother’s care and the importance of this particular partnership.

Miz Jolie told Hello mag:

“It was a brand my mother loved, and that I knew from my childhood. It spoke to her, as it does to me, of beauty, history and quality. It’s the oldest perfume house in the world, from France, a country I love and feel to connected to and spend time in. As I talked to Guerlain about the artistry they devote to the making of the perfume and the way they work in communities, sourcing their ingredients, the pieces came together and I felt we were a match.”

Adding:

“My mother was a very natural woman. She never spoiled herself, never wore make-up, and wore modest jewellery, but she always had a few special items for when she wanted to feel like a lady. One of those special items ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ and I remember it because it seemed so elegant ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ was her Guerlain powder (Ladies in All Climates). I think it speaks of all women having those few special things that make them feel feminine. And so when I was a little girl, I would associate Guerlain with that.”

And it looks like this campaign represents all of those qualities very beautifully!
