Read excerpts below
On her split from Brad Pitt: It’s just been the hardest time, and we’re just kind of coming up for air.(This house) is a big jump forward for us, and we’re all trying to do our best to heal as our family, things got bad. I don’t want to use that word, things became ‘difficult.’
On her kids: (Our lifestyle) was not in any way a negative. That was not the problem. That is and will remain one of the wonderful opportunities we are able to give our children. They’re six very strong-minded, thoughtful, worldly individuals. I’m very proud of them. They’re very brave, in times they needed to be. We’re all just healing from the events that led to the filing. They’re not healing from the divorce. They’re healing from things in life.
On developing hypertension and Bell’s palsy: I can’t tell if it’s menopause or if it’s just been the year I’ve had. Sometimes women in families put themselves last until it manifests itself in their own health. I actually feel like more of a woman because I’m being smart about my choices, and I’m putting my family first, and I’m in charge of my life and my health. I think that’s what makes a woman complete.
