Regarding the past few years, Angelina said: ‘We’ve all been a bit in lockdown. ‘We all have our difficult times. I didn’t work, the kids needed me at home… my strength is from my children.’

She continued: ‘Anyone who is a parent knows there is a strength within you that grows when you just have to survive anything to be strong enough for them and you have to pull them through anything.’

Returning to acting has allowed Angelina to see things clearly and positively again. She recently reprised her role as a Disney villain in Maleficent: of Evil.

‘There’s something when you are not feeling very strong where you push yourself and I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to play these kind of characters that pull out every bit of strength and remind me that I can be strong,’ she said, adding: ‘I guess I am a little bit stronger.’
