Angelina Jolie has finally spoken out about Madonna’s adoption of her Malawian son, David. Angelina tells Elle U.K.:
“That’s a tough one,” she muses to the magazine. “I mean, I’m sure their hearts are in the right place. But the reality is, Malawi is a country…Well, it’s not on our list, because there’s a very limited number of countries you can adopt from.”
And then in an interview with the French magazine Gala she says a little more frankly:
“Madonna knew the situation in Malawi, where he was born,” she says. “It’s a country where there is no real legal framework for adoption. Personally, I prefer to stay on the right side of the law. I would never take a child away from a place where adoption is illegal.” When asked if the saga would put her off adopting more children of her own with boyfriend Brad Pitt, she told Gala, “I have been horrified by the attacks she’s been subjected to. All that should count is the happiness of her little David.” But, she added: “Brad and I want to continue to adopt, but keeping a big family uses up a lot of money.”
So basically Angelina Jolie would never adopt a child from Malawi because apparently it’s illegal. Way to go, Madonna, you’ve done it again. Although what’s up with Angelina complaining about a family costing too much money? Is she afraid if she adopts another kid she won’t be able to afford that diamond spaceship she’s had her eye on?
