LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Angelina Jolie, who is on the verge of giving birth to twins, posed for Vanity Fair shortly before she began to show.
Angelina posed seductively at the end of January in Malibu, for the July Vanity Fair cover story. But inside the pages, Angelina shared her innermost feelings about Brad, family and her pregnancy with twins, in an emotional interview with Vanity Fair’s Rich Cohen.
Angelina, who revealed she loves feeling round and supple, said it’s likely she will birth her fifth and sixth children by C-section. She relished the experience of having a C-section with two-year-old baby, Shiloh.
“I didn’t find it a painful experience. I found it a fascinating miracle of what a body can do,” she told the magazine.
And for the first time, Angelina revealed how she and Brad chose the name Shiloh.
“It was a name my parents almost named their first child. There was a miscarriage – Shiloh Baptist,” she said. “I used to go under it in hotels… I’d gone under it when Brad called hotel rooms where I was staying.”
Angelina was most emotional about her mom, Marchelene, who died of ovarian cancer last year at the age of 56. She couldn’t talk about her mom without filling up and spilling over in tears.
“Well when I spoke to her I felt like she was still dealing with it,” Cohen said.
Angelina told Rich, “I had to be responsible for getting the morgue to pick her body up… As much as I miss her, I’m a good enough friend not to have wanted her to stay in pain any longer.”
In the article, Angelina also revealed how she will raise her children in regards to religion.
“Brad got me this great thing for Christmas, it’s a book shelf that has a book on every religion,” she explained. “That’s how we plan to raise our kids… They can pick one or be a student of all of them.”
