According to CelebBabyLaundry, Jolie recently admitted that she sometimes forgets her mom, Marcheline Bertrand, is not around "to talk about the everyday joys of raising her six children." Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt's Kids Wonder Why They Aren't Married
Bertrand passed away in 2007, but Jolie says, "There are times when I want to talk to my mother about something the children do, and then I realize she is not there."
Jolie obviously loved her mother deeply and saw her as a source of inspiration. Talking about her mother last November on 60 Minutes, she said, "I will never be as good a mother as she was. I will try my best, but I don't think I ever will be." Choking back tears she added, "She was the most generous, loving woman."
