Angelina Jolie Gives Tips To Avoid Living An Empty Life

What do you think it takes to be balanced person?







Angelina Jolie says the key to avoiding living “an empty life” comes down to finding a work/life balance.

“I think to be a balanced person, you have to find those things that you just purely enjoy,” the 42-year-old actress told Deadline Hollywood in an interview published Wednesday. “But, of course, if you aren’t participating in the bigger picture of life, and in being somehow useful, and you aren’t doing something and growing, then really, you’ll find you’re not very happy. Really, you’ll have quite an empty life.”

Jolie, who is producing Nora Twomey’s Oscar-nominated animated feature The Breadwinner, knows a lot about balance. She’s known for juggling her acting and directing career and role as mother to six children with her humanitarian work as a UN ambassador and eduction outreach as a visiting professor at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

“You have your creative, and you have your work, and every day of your life is going to be about somehow growing as a person,” the Maleficent star said. “Somehow feeling you can contribute to the extent that you can get tribute.”


It’s advice like this Jolie gives her daughters Vivienne, 9, Shiloh, 11, and Zahara, 13.

“I tell my daughters, ‘What sets you apart is what you are willing to do for others,’ ” the Oscar-winning actress and activist said in Elle magazine’s March issue. “‘Anyone can put on a dress and makeup. It’s your mind that will define you. Find out who you are, what you think, and what you stand for. And fight for others to have those same freedoms. A life of service is worth living.’ ”

She added, “I think of how hard women fought to get us to where we are today. Everything counts, from the way you hold yourself in daily life and educate yourself on your own rights, to solidarity with other women around the world.”

  3. Lovely dress she has on. All these fitness and weight watch people always look painfully thin to me. I don't see much beauty in bones poking out of the shoulders, arms and face of a lady. Cover those bones with flesh but don't over do it. Thats beauty to me. Wetin consign me sef.

  5. The level of admiration I've for Angelina Jolie is immeasurably awesome. I used to be a critic of her Directorial skills until I saw "By The Sea" and "First They Killed My Father".

    Such level of intelligence and versatility, her mystique persona and airs of darkness around her further makes her beautiful.

    1. I would like to believe you aren't bereft of the intellectual capacity to fathom that the word 'empty' as you've loosely used up there is relative.
