Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from her husband Brad Pitt on September 19, 2016, and now says that in the year since it's been a real roller coaster ride, emotionally and otherwise.

With Jolie's first film since announcing their separation debuting on Netflix on Friday, a Cambodian war epic titled "First They Killed My Father", the actress has officially returned to the spotlight with a handful of revealing interviews.

On what her six kids want for the future: "I think they're itching to get out in the world again". "I haven't worked for over a year now because they needed me home. I guess I am a little bit stronger", she said.

Angelina Jolie and her kids have been making frequent public appearances at the ongoing Toronto International Film Festival, and on Monday everyone came out to attend the premiere of Jolie's new film as director, First They Killed My Father.

Jolie said her children - Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne - love Loung, who they call auntie.

On their Facebook page the organizers blamed late pizza deliveries for why the event wasn't up to par. But the tickets weren't cheap if you wanted to go for the whole event, costing a whopping $75 (£52).

Following the announcement, Jolie moved herself and the couple's six children into a new house in L.A.

Looks like the Jolie-Pitt household is gifting us with yet another filmmaker in the family. Everything was just stopped.

"They really help me so much". "He's been practicing flying, then they called me the other day and said, 'So Mad can go solo, ' and I almost dropped the phone!" "He goes back and forth [to Cambodia] a lot, but this would be over four months of just being in the country, really reading, listening, learning and absorbing all things about his culture and country [including] the very, very dark parts".

The Maleficent star - who is the daughter of actors Jon Voight and the late Marcheline Bertrand - was encouraged to follow in her parents' footsteps by her mom and one of the reasons why she pursued it as a career was because she knew how happy it would make her mother. "He doesn't do it in front of me".
