During the Thursday, April 23 Time 100 Talks live virtual event series, the 44-year-old actress assured that they’re all locked in and that they’re doing all right.
With ex-husband Brad Pitt, Jolie shares Maddox, 18, Pax, 16, Zahara, 15, Shiloh, 13, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 11.
As the discussion progressed further, The Maleficent star admitted that these times are really frightening globally. She noted that this is a time for outrage, adding that under these present circumstances, children should never be as “vulnerable” as they are, for grand change across the world.
Those who have stepped up in the process were applauded by Jolie, however. The actress explained that she believes in humanity, that she has hope, and that she thinks everyone just really can’t afford not to have hope during these times. She added that she thinks when people are made aware, and if in the process, they can have a path guiding them forward with what to do and how to help, they will.
Us Weekly confirmed in March that as the virus spread, Maddox returned from college in South Korea. A source revealed at the time that Maddox is home from school and he is currently focusing on his Korean and Russian studies until school reopens. The source added that Jolie has all the other children on a routine. She wakes them up early every day and shortly afterward, she gets them started on their school tasks.
Jolie shared that when possible, her son would resume classes at Yonsei University. On April 1, she shared with DongA Daily that she could not be happier about Mad’s choice of university. She went on saying that at the moment, it is, of course, closed because of the pandemic, but she clarified that his son would not be transferring schools. She also reiterated that as soon as things settle and are normal once again, he’ll be going back.- Advertisement -
In August 2019, Maddox expressed he planned to study biochemistry. Later that month, the Oscar winner confessed that when she dropped his son off at school, she was trying hard not to cry over the milestone moment.
