Actress, wife, beauty queen, humanitarian, film director and Mum. Angelina Jolie has achieved a lot in her 39.9 years on this planet.

In a few days time (June 4), ‘Our Angie’ will turn the big 4-0, and while this sends shivers through the best of us, we’re sure Angelina will embrace it with the zeal of only a ‘perfect Mom’ can.

So, to mark this milestone event, and to be ever so slightly smug that she’s older than us (!), we’ve compiled our favourite Angie quotes on being a Mum and wife…

AJ the baby whisperer….

“I think children are exactly who they are when they’re born. And if there is a trauma, it can drastically change who they are.

If you look at baby photos of our kids, the way they were, the way they looked, what their energy was – whether they were a sweet, elegant, private little person, or a funny, open person, or a bold person – they’re still the same.”

AJ the cool Mum…

“We travel and I’m the first person to say, ‘get the school work done as quickly as possible because let’s go out and explore. I’d rather them go to a museum and learn to play guitar and read and pick a book they love.”

AJ the sex kitten…

“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.”

AJ the lady in black.

“As Brad’ll tell you—and my kids—apparently Mommy only wears black… I like to get up so every pair of pants goes with every top, every dress goes with every shoe. I’ve a very tiny closet. Brad’s always laughing at me. Some days, yes, I have the nightgown that looks like a dress that I can sleep in and pick the kids up at school. And maybe take a meeting if I switch into heels.”
