Angelina Jolie hasn’t seen many of her films, because she is a “terrible critic”.

The ‘Eternals’ actress – who has starred in an array of Hollywood blockbusters, including ‘Lara Croft: Tomb Raider’, ‘The Tourist’ and ‘Changeling’ – says she likes “the process” of making her movies much more than viewing them.

“I usually see it and I get frustrated cause I thought the it was going to be something else. So I’m a terrible critic.”

Despite her discomfort at watching herself on the big screen, Angelina admitted to making an exception for her new Marvel movie ‘Eternals’. We heard recently that Angelina Jolie lets her kids raid her wardrobe

“I enjoyed watching this one, I’ve seen it.”

The motion picture also stars Richard Madden, Gemma Chan, Salma Hayek and Kumali Nanjiani.

Angelina also confessed to be in the know about all the Marvel movies because her kids – Maddox, 20, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 15, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 13 – are big fans of the franchise.

The ‘Mrs and Mrs Smith’ star said: “Well, I have six kids so I’ve been in the world for a while.”

They all – bar Pax – escorted their mother to the film’s Los Angeles premiere in recycled garments from Angelina’s own closet, including Zahara’s silver sequinned Elie Saab couture, first worn on the red carpet at the 2014 Oscars.

Angelina said: “My kids are all mixed with vintage, and in my old Oscars dress. We did vintage and upcycled my old stuff.”

Meanwhile Angelina Jolie has responds to Eternals ban over same-sex relationship stating “I’m proud of Marvel for refusing to cut those scenes out.”

Countries including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar will not release the Chloé Zhao-directed Marvel adventure because of its portrayal of queer relationship and the inclusion of a same-sex kiss. In these countries, same-sex sexual activity is illegal and punishable by a jail sentence. In Saudi Arabia, torture or death may be sentenced on first conviction, MarkMeets have been informed.

Actor Lauren Ridloff, who plays Makkari, told MarkMeets recently: “It was such a big moment for me to play not just a deaf superhero but also a deaf, Black, Mexican, female superhero. Even though Marvel has been around for a while, it’s only just recently that I’ve started seeing more representation of ourselves and feel a part of movies, especially with Black Panther and Shang-Chi.”

Zhao added: “I feel it’s important that people that may look like us or communicate like us see themselves on screen, but also for people that have nothing in common with us. That they see Makkari and think: I am nothing like her but I understand her and I like her on the inside as a human being.”
