US Weekly Cover - Angelina's Double Life!



Angelina Jolie recently announced, to much fanfare, that she would be a stay-at-home mom. "I will stay at home to help Pax adjust to his new life," Jolie told the Ho Chi Minh City Law newspaper on March 16. "I have four children and caring for them is the most important thing for the moment."

So it came as a surprise four days later when Variety reported that the Oscar winner had signed up to play an assassin in Wanted, which is set to begin shooting in April in Prague. Even more bewildering was Jolie, 31, showing up in Chicago on March 23 for screen tests on Wanted.

The fact that Jolie was anywhere but at home with her family was odd. Just eight days earlier, the actress had picked up her newly adopted son, Pax, from a Vietnam orphanage. But, despite what she told the Vietnamese newspaper, the mother-of-four does not appear to be slowing down any time soon. She's also slated to star in Atlas Shrugged and The Changeling, which is preparing a fall start.

"That does seem like a heavy workload for someone with a large family," Christine Adamec, author of Is Adoption for You?, tells Us. Adds L.A.-area early-development psychologist Marcy Axness: "Children thrive on predictability, continuity, security and rhythm in their daily life."

That's not the only about-face Jolie has made recently. The day Jolie picked up Pax at the orphanage, where paparazzi swarmed, she said, "Photographs make him upset.I'm sorry for bringing this into his life." And yet, just days after picking up Pax, Jolie staged photos of herself, Zahara, Maddox and Pax and sold them to the U.K.'s Hello! magazine and People magazine.
