Angelina Jolie

Woman of the Week: July 16, 2010

This week we're praising Angelina Jolie for putting her children at the forefront of her Hollywood life. Jolie's parenting has been under scrutiny because of the tomboyish way she lets daughter Shiloh, 4, dress. The actress, however, praised her daughter's uniqueness. "I would never be the kind of parent to force somebody to be something they are not," she told Reuters. "Children should be allowed to express themselves in whatever way they wish without anybody judging them because it is an important part of their growth." The actress has also gone against the grain in her love life, as she and Brad Pitt have publicly said that they are completely comfortable being together without getting married. But, in a recent Nightline interview, the actress shared what would change her mind -- if it's what her children wanted. We love that Angelina Jolie celebrates her own individuality, as well as her children's, and always puts her family first.
