What Kind Of Mom Is Angelina, REALLY?

April 2nd, 2010 | 6 comments | Posted by Diana

In Touch caused quite a stir this week by releasing an exclusive interview with “Bill,” a man who claims to be a former bodyguard for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. The “ugly truth?” Angie’s apparently a bad mother:

“Bill’s” testimony:

“In my opinion, the real Angelina is self-centered and a control freak. She has no patience at all. She doesn’t do things out of the kindness of her heart. And she’s totally psycho.” While Brad is laid-back and patient with his kids’ often wild behavior, Angelina is anything but. “She screams and yells a lot, then walks away,” Bill says, explaining that Angelina would often “disappear into her suite for hours,” leaving staffers — and Brad — to deal with her children. “She would punish them with silence,” says Bill, adding, “I think she could be abusive at times in a mental way.” If the children were to get upset by her withholding behavior, he says, Angelina didn’t seem to care. “She is not moved by tears,” he explains. Still more disturbing, he recalls, Angelina has a “quirky habit” of “giggling when one of her kids would start crying.”

Hmm. This passage actually makes me feel kinda nostalgic (Mommy? Mommy?)…

Here’s a theory: Perhaps Mama Jolie has just been trying her darndest to be an authentic Hardass Asian Mom for her boys! Has anybody ever stopped to think of that? If this guy speaks the truth*, she’s doing a damn good job of giving Maddox and Pax a slice of home!

*Sorry, “Bill”–I don’t believe this shit for a second.

    I thought the same thing. Even if these allegations were true, it doesn’t necessarily mean she’s a bad mother. There’s kind, sympathetic and not-in-control mothers… and then there’s tough-love but understandably hard-ass moms who don’t take shit from anyone, not even their own children.

    Compared to other mothers out there, this sounds relatively tame.

    I remember reading an interview where Angelina talks about sitting down with her oldest to give him a present of a knife and a talk about how it was their duty to protect the weak…something like that.

    Bad parent? Who the hell knows? But I could believe that parenting might not come naturally to her, especially since she didn’t exactly have a normal home life growing up.

    I totally buy that she’s a Hardass though.

    I agree with all of you.

    Not all good parenting has to be the same style. There are nurturing parents, supportive parents, liberal parents and hard-ass (asian) parents. Given a bit of moderation and depending on situation, you can parent in a way that’s suitable for the children…and if the kids are acting out for naughty reasons, SOMEONE’S gotta lay down the law…

    …and it’s not a surprise that it’s usually the mom who ends up being “the bitch” in most of these situations!
