Angelina Jolie has said she spent the last few years "healing" her family following her separation from Brad Pitt in 2016.

In an interview with British Vogue, the Maleficient star reflects on her life since the end of her 12-year relationship with Pitt.

Jolie, who shares six children with Pitt, said: "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.

"I'm looking forward to my fifties - I feel that I'm gonna hit my stride in my fifties. Though we were on the trampoline the other day, and the children said, 'No, Mom, don't do that. You'll hurt yourself.' And I thought, 'God, isn't that funny?'

"There was a day I was an action star, and now the kids are telling me to get off the trampoline because I'll hurt myself."

Jolie also revealed that she thinks she is "lacking in all the skills to be a traditional stay-at-home mom," as she was "was never very good at sitting still".

She added: "Even though I wanted to have many children and be a mom, I always imagined it kind of like Jane Goodall, travelling in the middle of the jungle somewhere.

"I didn't imagine it in that true, traditional sense."
