Looking at 'Tomb Raider' actress Angelina Jolie, one finds it hard to believe that she could be afraid of anything. However, there was one thing that had sent fear into her heart.
Believe it or not, it was not the fear of Jennifer Aniston, but of motherhood.
"I was always considered so dark and I thought maybe I shouldn't be someone's mom because I'm not so sure about it myself—am I going to be the best mom?" the New York Post quoted her as telling the Sunday Express about her frame of mind back in 2002 when she went to Cambodia to adopt her first child.
But when she held her son in her arms, that fear began to subside.
"They put him [Maddox] in my arms and I stared at him and I started crying and he smiled. I hadn't held children before in my life," she said.
"The fact that this little kid seemed so at ease gave me the courage to feel I could make him happy and so we became a family," she added.
Angelina and Pitt have since added two more adopted kids, and also one very genetically gifted biological daughter, to their clan.
