"I actually love being in menopause," Angelina said. "I haven't had a terrible reaction to it, so I'm very fortunate," she said. "I feel older, and I feel settled being older."
"I feel happy that I've grown up. I don't want to be young again," the mom-of-six added during her recent sit-down with the Daily Telegraph.

In March, Angelina underwent a preventative surgery to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes after doctors told her she had a 50 percent risk of developing ovarian cancer. The actress—who previously lost both her mother and grandmother to ovarian cancer—also underwent a preventative double mastectomy in 2013 to reduce her risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer.

The By the Sea star added her husband, Brad Pitt, 51, "made it very, very clear to me that what he loved and what was a woman to him was somebody who was smart, and capable, and cared about her family, that it's not about your physical body."

"So I knew through the surgeries that this wasn't going to be something that made me feel like less of a woman, because my husband wouldn't let that happen," she said.
"I wouldn't want to be in my 20s or 30s again. I'm someone who didn't think I would live very long. I've been worried about death and cancer and life. I think I've lived very much for the day," Angelina said in another new interview with People. "Now I've settled into my life with my children and Brad."
