Angelina Jolie is back in (great) company. Waiting for the red carpet that will close the Rome Film Festival in style on October 24, the most diva diva in Hollywood walked with her children at the Los Angeles premiere of The Eternals, the new Marvel movie that will arrive in Italian cinemas on November 3. Tribe almost complete – only 17-year-old Pax was missing – with Maddox, 20, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 15, and thirteen-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, all dressed in previously used clothes, as required by the green label of the new events post pandemic.

So when I was told what his intentions were and what he meant by family, I knew it was something I had been waiting for for a long time. “

The Eternals tells the story of a group of Immortals who after years of “inactivity” and of life, so to speak, in civilian clothes, are forced to put on their superhero uniforms and unite against humanity’s oldest enemy, the Deviants. But in this group, the director pointed out, there is no more important Immortal, but all are protagonists because each has value for its peculiarities. Just like in a real family. A spirit that was also that of the set. It seems that, according to younger colleagues, Angelina and Salma Hayek were the moms of the cast. Angelina confirmed: “I’m a mom,” she said. “And Salma is too. We are like that ».
