(Newser) – The every mood and move of "Brangelina" results in frantic flashbulbs and screaming headlines, but when Rich Cohen sat down with Angelina Jolie for Vanity Fair, he found a complete woman whose life perhaps imitates her art. The "ultimate avatar of fantasies," her onscreen roles have reflected her personal evolution: from wild child to crusader to Brad Pitt's "wife."

"Angelina is a new kind of movie star in just the way Barack Obama is a new kind of politician," writes Cohen, declaring her an "archetype" on the level of "Elizabeth Taylor in 1951." Jolie dishes on how she and Pitt "feel married," the loss of her mother, and how she's giving her nontraditional family "the childhood I always wished I had."
