Angelina Jolie: Rich, Famous Moms "Shouldn't Complain," "Have Much More Support Than Most"

Hear that, Gwyneth? Angelina Jolie knows how good she has it. The Oscar-winning actress, 38, said in a new interview with the New York Daily News that she is aware that she has "much more support than most people." 

"I’m not a single mom with two jobs trying to get by every day," the Maleficent star said. "I have much more support than most people, most women in this world. And I have the financial means to have a home and health care and food."

Jolie is famously the mother to six children with longtime partner Brad Pitt. The couple parents son Maddox, 12, son Pax, 10, daughter Zahara, 9, daughter Shiloh, 7, son Knox, 5, and daughter Vivienne, 5.

In addition to her starring role in the upcoming Maleficent, Jolie is also lending her voice to Kung Fu Panda 3 and directing the Coen brothers-assisted war drama Unbroken. She continued, "When I feel I’m doing too much, I do less, if I can. And that’s why I’m in a rare position where I don’t have to do job after job. I can take time when my family needs it."

"I actually feel that women in my position, when we have all at our disposal to help us, shouldn’t complain," Jolie, who is worth a reported combined $270 million with Pitt, said. "Consider all the people who really struggle and don’t have the financial means, don’t have the support, and many people are single raising children. That’s hard."

One actress who does not seem to agree with Jolie's sense of perspective is Gwyneth Paltrow. The Goop businesswoman lamented her struggles of maintaining her film career while raising children in a recent interview with E! News.

"It's much harder for me," mother-to-two Paltrow, 41, said. "I think it's different when you have an office job, because it's routine and, you know, you can do all the stuff in the morning and then you come home in the evening."

"When you're shooting a movie, they're like, 'We need you to go to Wisconsin for two weeks,' and then you work 14 hours a day and that part of it is very difficult," she continued. "I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as… of course there are challenges, but it's not like being on set."
