‘There’s Nothing Nice About It’: Angelina Jolie Opens Up About The Struggles Of Being Single

She misses being in a relationship but is "trying to get through".

Angelina Jolie’s split from Brad Pitt last year hit her so hard that she still hasn’t come to terms with it, and the actress has just opened up about coping with life in the single lane.

Speaking to the Telegraph, the mum-of-six said, “I don’t enjoy being single. It’s not something I wanted… There’s nothing nice about it. It’s just hard.”

She and Brad had been together for 12 years, so it’s a huge lifestyle change for her to be on her own now. “Sometimes maybe it appears I am pulling it all together, but really I am just trying to get through my days. Emotionally, it’s been a very difficult year.”

Angelina told the paper that she’s been trying to take more time for herself – to up-skill and improve her well-being. “I am going to cooking classes,” she said, “Cooking is one of those things you do when you are settled in your life and you can take the time.”

She adds, “Maybe now that my kids are growing up I am starting to realise that my own sense of play has been put on hold for a while… And maybe them hitting their teens is going to bring out a little more fun in Mom… So maybe I am going back. It may be time.”
