Angelina Jolie says her life is an open book in an interview with Ann Curry to air on the Today show and Dateline this Wednesday. "There's nothing I have to hide or defend," Jolie says. "I'm gonna live my life. There are gonna be times when people wanna try to attack me and I don't know why, but they will. And that's okay... There are other things I'm more concerned about. My kids are healthy. I have a lot I want to do in this world... I wanna do a lot of things as a woman, as a mom, and - and that's my focus... I have always been honest about who I am, and I've always been very outspoken to press. I think people have heard a lot from me over the years... [If] people wanna believe negative things, they will... I can't help that. At the end of the day, I'm gonna be dead one day. And what people say about me is gonna be what I accomplished and what I did in my life and how my children are." Jolie and partner Brad Pitt attended the Cannes premiere of A Mighty Heart today, in which the actress plays Mariane Pearl, the wife of slain journalist Daniel Pearl. "God, how...is this woman physically dealing with trying to maintain her strength and take care of this baby that's inside her, working so hard and...having so much emotional stress?" Jolie told Curry of the first time she met Pearl. "The day before we started shooting, I hardly slept and I was in a panic. I had gotten to know her, and I'd gotten to know their son. And the thought that he would see this one day. It was my responsibility to not just show the world but also show him how much his mother loved his father and how much they loved each other and how they handled this time."
