Angelina Jolie On The Blood Vial, Buying Gifts And Pregnant Sex: "It's Great"

Angelina Jolie gave an interview to Entertainment Weekly while checking out a window display of Corum watches at the Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat in the south of France.

On her partner not being easy to buy things for: "Brad is the hardest person to shop for. 'He has impeccable design taste. And whenever he sees something he likes, he buys it for himself."

On Brad's most recent gift to her (a gun-charm necklace she wore to her EW photo shoot):
"Mad, our 6-year-old, draws lots of war scenarios. He's all into war and guns. So for Mother's Day he drew a machine gun, and Brad had it made into a necklace, which is really sweet. It's really cute. I think it's really good!"

On anything she's said that she wishes she hadn't (like all that business about wearing the vial of Billy Bob Thornton's blood around your neck when you two were married): No! It was never a vial anyway. It was like a flower press. It was like from a slight cut on your finger and you press your fingerprint in. It was kind of a sweet gesture. I thought it was kind of romantic! I still love him dearly and think the world of him and I'm proud to have been his wife for a time. I don't believe in regrets. It's a dangerous habit to get into -- it makes you pause in your life if you start thinking back and questioning yourself.

On people saying being pregnant is bad for one's sex life:
No, I think it's quite the opposite. It's great for the sex life. It just makes you a lot more creative. So you have fun, and as a woman you're just so round and full.

Would you say you're drawn to extremes?

I think so, yeah. We joke about that at home a lot, because we walk in different worlds together, Brad and I. We joke about the extremes of the things we'll do.

Like what?

Well, certain things are private! But there's a side of us that's so mommy-daddy and then there's a side of us that's...very man and woman. I'll leave it at that. We both like to ride motorcycles, we both like to fly planes, that's the spirited side of us. Then the other side of us is very focused on silly mommy-daddy things. So I guess that's extremes, but I just think of that as balance.

What's the deal with Brad's new tattoo?

I drew that. We went to Davos. It's not that we were bored at the World Economic Forum, but one night we didn't have anything to do, so I was drawing on his back.

So it's not permanent?
It is. But I was just sketching.

On him?
On him, yeah.

And you thought, ''Let's make it a tattoo''?
He just liked it! The picture everybody saw was kind of awkward, but it just lines up beautifully on his back, just enhances the part of the body I like.
