Angelina Jolie: Kids Come First, Then Brad

Oscar? Who cares about an Oscar? Everybody but Angelina Jolie. She would gladly give up her own golden statue for her partner Brad Pitt to win one. The couple even skipped the Oscar Nomination luncheon this week.

Since Jolie is still technically doing promos for 'The Changeling' she showed up for an interview with 'Good Morning America' today and talked in depth about Brad, kids, and leaving acting. Here are some highlights from the interview via

On her Oscars nomination:

"I feel very very lucky that I have won in the past. Listen, it’s lovely to be nominated. But I’m hoping Benjamin Button does really good on the night…. I’m rooting for Brad [Pitt]."

On watching her own films:

"A film or two I haven't seen. Most of them I have seen once. I like the process of doing them more than watching them. I don't really like to watch movies. I love to watch Brad's movies."

On her priorities:

"I say kids first, woman to Brad and then my work internationally; and try to educate myself and learn about the world and do some good things while I'm alive. So what is that [ranking]? Fourth?"

On what her kids think of her career:

"I think they only think I animate Kung Fu Panda… and that’s the extent of my career."

On stepping away from acting:

"I’ve been lucky enough to have a great career and a lot of success. But I wake up every day just the happiest mommy… I don’t want to wake up one day and say I had my career that expanded so much longer and I did that many more films and miss out on all those other things in life."
