“Mom? I saw this thing over there — can I skateboard on it?” The “thing” is a freshly painted cyclorama inside the Los Angeles photo studio where, on a sunny day in November, Jolie is being photographed for her THR cover. And the blond girl in the hoodie who wants to skateboard on its rad curved surfaces is none other than Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, arguably the most genetically advantaged 8-year-old on Earth. Also possibly the most self-assured (“Wassup!” she greets a stranger, flashing a cocky grin). But the answer is no, Shiloh may not skateboard on the cyc wall. Some rules cannot be broken, even if your mother happens to be one of the biggest rule breakers of the year.
“I never had a plan for my life,” Jolie says after breaking the bad news to her daughter, then settling into a sofa with Zen-like calm. “I do what I want to do. And if suddenly tomorrow I couldn’t do anything, I could deal with that. I’d be happy at home being a mom.”

Angelina Jolie will miss out on several days of promoting Unbroken, her latest film as director, because of a bout with a mild case of chicken pox.
The film tells the true story of Olympic runner Louie Zamperini, who was held in Japanese internment camps during World War II.
“You have to laugh at the timing,” Jolie said. “I was sure nothing could stop me from supporting Unbroken. I am heartbroken to miss our premiere, most of all the chance to be there with Louie’s family.”
Unbroken studio Universal wished Jolie a “speedy recovery.”
“She is in very good spirits, considering after two years of hard work, she will not be there the night it finally premieres,” the studio said in a statement.
Unbroken has its Los Angeles premiere Dec. 15. The film opens Christmas Day.

“Are you a good director?” That was the slightly provocative, teasing question Mike Leigh (Mr. Turner) posed to Angelina Jolie (Unbroken) as they sat down for this year’s THR Director Roundtable — one, a veteran who has been making films for four decades; the other, a relative newcomer who just completed her second picture. During the ensuing conversation, what emerged was how varied good directors are in their approach, both to filmmaking and the world. Leigh, 71, and Jolie, 39, were joined Nov. 20 by Richard Linklater, 54 (Boyhood), Bennett Miller, 47 (Foxcatcher), Christopher Nolan, 44 (Interstellar), and Morten Tyldum, 47 (The Imitation Game).
