Angelina Jolie says the world needs more 'wicked women'

Angelina Jolie Thena Eternals

According to ET Online, the actress shares six children with her former partner Brad Pitt-Maddox (18), Pax (15), Zahara (14), Shiloh (13), and Vivienne and Knox (both 11).

She revealed that she has a piece of advice for her daughters. The actor, who is gearing up for the release of her next film Maleficent in October, has stressed upon the word "wicked" and how women who tried to go against the rules were deemed as the witches.

"You can always put on a pretty dress, but it doesn't matter what you wear on the outside if your mind isn't strong", Jolie said.

Angelina Jolie opens up about encouraging her daughters to be "strong" and to "develop their minds" in a new essay for ELLE UK.

"If that is wickedness, then the world needs more wicked women", said the actress, who added that her essay was not an attempt to "dismiss or downplay the awful abuses against men and boy". "Had I lived in earlier times, I could have been burnt at the stake many times over for simply being myself", writes Angelina.

Off screen, Jolie has often been criticised for her life choices - be it the time she started dating Brad Pitt, then married to actress Jennifer Aniston, her life as a drug addict, or the time she chose to end her marriage with Pitt.

"If that is wickedness, then the world needs more wicked women", the star declared.

Jolie continues, "But it is also true that women don't wake up every morning wanting to fight. Women who stand up for human rights in many countries are still labeled 'deviant, ' 'bad mothers, ' 'difficult, ' or 'loose, '" she wrote.

While some sources say mum Angie is "proud" of Maddox's move overseas, others report that tumultuous split and ugly custody battle between Brad, 55, and Angelina, 44, all but forced Maddox to make a geographical change in his life. "Women who won't give up on their voice and rights, even at the risk of death or imprisonment or rejection by their families and communities". Read the rest of Jolie's essay over at Elle.

Jolie also nodded to her sons in the essay, writing that she "could not be prouder ... for the men they are becoming".
