Angelina Jolie says she’s ‘not enjoying being single’

Hollywood star Angelina Jolie says she’s had a “difficult” time since splitting from Brad Pitt last year.

She told the Telegraph: “It’s been difficult. I don’t enjoy being single. It’s not something I wanted. There’s nothing nice about it. It’s just hard.”

In another interview with Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald, she said she had spent much of the last year “just taking care of my children”.

“I can’t pretend this isn’t a tough time in my life,” she added.

“But I’m trying to get through it by just moving forward and knowing it’s part of being human.

“Maybe sometimes it appears I am pulling it all together, but really in fact I am just trying to get through my days.

“I will eventually balance more and do more work, but because of family issues it’s been extremely tough.”

The actress turned director has been giving interviews about First They Killed My Father, a fact-based drama that premieres on Netflix this month.

Set in 1970s Cambodia, it tells of the survival of activist and lecturer Loung Ung under Khmer Rouge leader Pol Pot.

In another interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the 42-year-old said she had been “needed at home” and would go back to work “when I feel it’s time”.

The star said she would do some acting first, because she didn’t “have anything to direct that I feel passionate about like” her latest film.

Jolie said her first role after taking time off would “most likely” be the sequel to her 2014 fantasy Maleficent.
