ANGELINA Jolie learned to fly as a birthday present for her son.
The actress — who raises six children with partner Brad Pitt — took pilot lessons after realizing how much her eldest child, Maddox, now eight, enjoyed watching planes go by.
“When Maddox was one and a half, we used to go to the airfield, have lunch and watch the planes,” she said. “And it dawned on me: I could fly. So I promised him I would fly by his second birthday.”
The Salt star admits she loves boarding a plane alone as it is the only time she gets the solitude she craves.
“It’s the only place I’m completely alone — up in the air, detached from everything,” she said.
“Brad loves the technical aspects. He loves the checks, loves all the maths. I’m terrible at the maths, but I love that I can go anywhere and have that freedom. He’s more patient. I tend to drive it to the ground.”
