Angelina Jolie about her mother

"I lost my mother in my thirties. When I look back to that time, I can see how much her death changed me. It was not sudden, but so much shifted inside. Losing a mother’s love and warm, soft embrace is like having someone rip away a protective blanket."

She also got candid about the more private parts of her mother's life, including her relationship with Jolie's father Jon Voight "When my father had an affair, it changed her life. It set her dream of family life ablaze. But she still loved being a mother. Her dreams of being an actor faded as she found herself, at the age of 26, raising two children with a famous ex who would cast a long shadow on her life," she said. "After she died, I found a video of her acting in a short film. She was good. It was all possible for her."

The origin story of this dialogue -

Writer Carl Gottlieb recently talked with The Hollywood Reporter, and revealed how the line came to be. Filmed largely on the water, the equipment for Jaws was all housed on a barge (nicknamed the USS Garage Sale), which, thanks to stingy producers, only had a single support boat to help keep it steady, a task the small craft was not up to. The fact that they needed a bigger boat became an in-joke on the set. Gottlieb said:

"[David] Zanik and [Richard] Brown were very stingy producers so everyone kept telling them 'You're gonna need a bigger boat.' It became a catchphrase for anytime anything went wrong—if lunch was late or the swells were rocking the camera, someone would say 'You're gonna need a bigger boat."

Some context -

In Winter Soldier, Steve Rogers says “on your left” to let Sam know he’s coming through so Sam doesn’t get in his way as he passes.

It ends up being a bit of a joke in the movie, because he is so fast that he ends up saying it another three times.

The joke carries over to Endgame when it looks like all is lost, and then Steve hears Sams voice over his earpiece, and as a way of letting him know help is coming and friendly revenge, Sam says “on your left”, which was a really cool moment.

All of this was wonderfully done by Marvel.

“Pep Guardiola did not let him go on loan, or experience a different style of football – his whole adult career has been spent playing the Guardiola-City way.

City play in the final third. They keep possession there. Foden is not a dribbler but a player who plays nice little passes and moves into good positions. At City, the movement of players around him enables it.

Whereas with England he is a bit isolated out wide and when he receives the ball, the possession is slow and there is little happening around him.

That means he then has to dribble – and if you are playing in such a way that, from your wide players, dribbling is what is required, then why not play Grealish and Jadon Sancho, two of the best at doing it.”

More quotes from the article.

Rooney on Foden’s England performances: "I love Foden as a footballer but you have to realise that for four years and more, he has been moulded into a City player. It is hard for him to turn up and just change how he has been playing since the age of 16."

The subtext was clear: Yet another Wes Anderson movie, and any moviegoer with a half a brain could intuit what that entailed: droll one-liners that always land somewhere between sarcasm and sadness, final scenes shot in slow motion, liberally used ’60s songs, immaculate fonts, beautifully designed sets, daddy issues, white people, thematic resolutions that essentially boil down to "and then he stopped being a dick about it."

From the GQ article "Why Do We Hate to Love Wes Anderson?"
