The former couple, since then, has been embroiled in a custody battle over their six children — Maddox, 19, Pax, then 16, Zahara, then 15, Shiloh, 14, and 12-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox. Several reports have claimed that one of the primary issues of the matter is that Angelina wants to be able to travel the world, and Brad insists that she make Los Angeles her home base.
Now, during an interview with British Vogue, Angelina said that her house is just a few minutes away from Brad’s. “I wanted it to be close to their dad, who is only five minutes away. I felt a little pressure moving in. Like I had snuck into where DeMille and Chaplin would hang out. I love most that there is no entertainment room, but lots of pathways and places to walk and think. I feel very fortunate we have that at this time.”
Angelina also spoke about how life has changed in the last few years. Asked if she’s in a happy phase in her life, she said, “I don’t know. The past few years have been pretty hard. I’ve been focusing on healing our family. It’s slowly coming back, like the ice melting and the blood returning to my body. But I’m not there. I’m not there yet. But I hope to be. I’m planning on it.”
