Angelina Jolie is, allegedly, living a lonely life because she doesn’t have friends other than her children.
According to Star, Angelina Jolie may be one of the biggest names in Hollywood, but she’s not much of a team player. And her being anti-social has not also done her any favors.
Angelina Jolie froze her friends
A source told the tabloid that Jolie has just been hanging out with her kids. And she’s also relying on them for emotional support.
“Angelina hasn’t done herself any favors by being deliberately anti-social. She’s turned down many offers to attend events,” the source said.
Angelina Jolie became more distant after Brad Pitt divorce
According to the insider, Jolie has always been aloof. But after her split from Brad Pitt, she became more distant from everyone.
“Other than her kids, the only people she interacts with really are her bodyguards and assistants and the staff at her house,” the source said.
And Jolie has also, allegedly, alienated some of her closest friends from the industry.
“She has a very forthright and rigid attitude, which has driven a number of people away. Amal Clooney, Charlize Theron, and even ordinary folk like Brad’s family found her icy and intolerant. [Jolie’s brother] James used to be around all the time and was the unofficial ‘manny’ to her kids. But they barely talk now,” the source said.
The actress has no plans to date
The insider also claimed that Angelina Jolie isn’t interested in dating either. Since her split from Pitt, Jolie hasn’t, reportedly, met anyone special.
“There have been occasional flirtations but nothing’s stuck, and she seems to be genuinely fine with that,” the source said.
Jolie is focused on raising her kids
Instead of going out on dates, Jolie is, reportedly, focusing all her energy on raising her kids. She has been relying on her two eldest sons for emotional support.
“Maddox has become something of a parental figure to his siblings, too. Deep down, she doesn’t like to be by herself all the time. But it’s hard to see that ever-changing, even after her kids leave home,” the source said.
In order to cope, Jolie, allegedly, has a strict and organized schedule for her kids to follow. But she also knows that they’re not always going to be at home.
For instance, Maddox will, reportedly, return to South Korea once it’s safe for him to travel. And Jolie and Pitt’s youngest kids, Vivienne and Knox will soon become teenagers and will eventually have their own lives.
However, all this doesn’t necessarily mean that Angelina Jolie is living a lonely life. It’s possible that this is her choice and she’s happy to just be surrounded by her children all the time.
