“My mother loved art,” Jolie said of the late Marcheline Bertrand, who died of ovarian cancer in 2007. “She loved film. She supported any crazy thing I did but whenever it had meaning, she made a point of telling me, ‘That is what film is for.’”She talked about her mother driving Angelina and brother James to auditions before adding, “She wasn’t really the best critic since she never had anything unkind to say, but she did give me love and confidence. And above all, she was very clear that nothing would mean anything if I didn’t live a life of use to others. And I didn’t know what that meant for a long time … It was only when I began to travel and look and live beyond my home that I understand my responsibility to others.”

It wasn’t the first time the 38-year-old mother of six, who won Best Supporting Actress in 2000 for “Girl, Interrupted,” turned emotional while publicly discussing her mother, an actress and producer who was also heavily involved in humanitarian causes, including work with the All Tribes Foundation and the Give Love Give Life organization. Jolie welled up while discussing Bertrand at a 2008 London press conference promoting the mother-son drama “Changeling,” and fought back tears after calling her mother “grace incarnate” on a 2011 episode of “60 Minutes.”
