Angelina Jolie’s love life suffered greatly as a result of her collaboration with Brad Pitt in Mr. and Mrs. Smith. However, another film she appeared in had such an impact on her that she attributed her pregnancy to it.

Angelina Jolie loved being pregnant after vowing never to have kids

Angelina Jolie felt the joys of pregnancy after giving birth to Shiloh, her and Pitt’s first biological kid. Shiloh was born in 2006, many years after Jolie vowed not to have another natural pregnancy.

“I never felt that it was the right thing to do,” she once said in an interview with W Magazine.

This changed as a result of Pitt’s actions, which persuaded her otherwise. She and Pitt would have another set of biological children, Knox and Vivienne after Shiloh was born. She embraced the pregnancy and birthing processes both times.

“I love it. It makes me feel like a woman. It makes me feel that all the things about my body are suddenly there for a reason. It makes you feel round and supple, and to have a little life inside you is amazing,” Angelina Jolie once told Marie Claire. “Also, I’m fortunate. I think some women have a different experience depending on their partner. I think that affects it. I happen to be with somebody who finds pregnancy very sexy. So that makes me feel very sexy.”

Angelina Jolie felt she became pregnant because of this Clint Eastwood movie.

Angelina Jolie appeared in Clint Eastwood’s film Changeling in 2008. The film is a mystery crime thriller featuring Jolie as a mother whose son has gone missing. When her son returned, she was skeptical that he was hers. It was the type of film Jolie was opposed to making because of her attachment to her own children.

“I read it in one sitting,” Jolie once said in an interview with ABC News. “And I was so angry as a mother that I didn’t want to do it, I didn’t want to touch it, I didn’t want to think about anyone kidnapping my children. I didn’t want to go near it. But I couldn’t forget it and I couldn’t stop thinking about her and I kept telling people about this amazing woman and so I realized that her story and the story of what she overcame and that she fought the system and who she was and I really wanted to tell it.

While filming the project, Angelina Jolie discovered she was pregnant, which she blamed on the Eastwood film.

“I got pregnant right in the middle of it and I think partially because of it,” she said in a 2008 Los Angeles Times interview. “I was so emotional about children that I think something in me kicked into gear.”

Angelina Jolie once shared she didn’t experience true love until having kids.

Angelina Jolie has had a number of high-profile boyfriends. Aside from Pitt, she had a well-publicized relationship with Billy Bob Thornton. However, she claimed that she only felt true love after first seeing her child Maddox.

“I have never been romantic about it. I never believed in it, I think, until I had children. The moment I looked into Maddox’s eyes in the orphanage, my entire world changed. And that was the first time I had experienced it,” she once told Hello (via Today’s Parent).
