With Jolie's first film since announcing their separation debuting on Netflix on Friday, a Cambodian war epic titled "First They Killed My Father", the actress has officially returned to the spotlight with a handful of revealing interviews.

Jolie proudly posed with children Maddox, 16; Pax, 13; Zahara, 12; Shiloh, 11; Vivienne, 9, and Knox, 9, and activist Un, plus the film's stars Kimhak Mun and Sareum Srey Moch on the red carpet. "They are going through their formative years and everything else comes second to that".

"I can never rate my own child, but I couldn't have made it without him and I cannot say that about every producer I've worked with", she told E! "With all that's accessible to us sometimes we get completely overwhelmed and we don't know what to believe and what to do, so I'm just trying to listen to other women, I'm trying to lend my voice where possible", Jolie told the Women in the World summit in an afternoon panel.

Angelina Jolie has opened up about her split from Brad Pitt to the New York Times and spoke candidly about the aftermath and how their children are coping. "And that's O.K., because I know who I am, and the kids know who I am".

Jolie and Pitt married in 2014 and filed for divorce in September 2016. "That there was going to have to be another base regardless of everything", Jolie explained. "That there was going to have to be a home".
