While she’s got it down to a science now, it wasn’t always that way: “I had my moments when I was little where I would put makeup all over my face, but I was a bit of a tomboy. And then I was a bit of a punk. Nowadays it’s very popular to dye your hair blue, for example. In my day you bleached it and used a Sharpie [for colour].”

Jolie has learned her beauty lesson over her many years of red carpets. “I have very full, big features, so if I did everything, I’d look a bit like a clown. It’d be just…a lot.”

And she doesn’t mind getting older: “I also see myself aging, and I love it because it means I’m alive—I’m living and getting older. Don’t love having a random dark spot from a pregnancy, sure. I see my flaws. But what I see that I like isn’t about a structure or an appearance. It’s more that I see my family in my face. I see my age.”
