Angelina Jolie appeared naked under a sheer veil for Harper’s Bazaar and revealed in a telling interview that she has both “visible and invisible scars” from what her body has endured over the past 10 years.
The Oscar-winning actress remarked to the publication that her life has taken many difficult paths.
“The invisible ones are harder to wrestle with. Life takes many turns. Sometimes you get hurt, you see those you love in pain, and you can’t be as free and open as your spirit desires. It’s not new or old, but I do feel the blood returning to my body,” said Jolie to the magazine.
The stunning actress, who is wearing a long white veil on the cover and nothing else, is breathtaking in her simple beauty.
In the photo, posted to the official Instagram account of Harper’s Bazaar, Jolie’s hair is slicked back away from her face, eyebrows arched and filled in, making for a stunning contrast against her cat eye makeup, which frames the top half of her face. Her full lips are filled in with a darker hue, to properly be seen through the covering.
The stunning photo of the actress can be seen below.
Jolie’s back tattoo is also clearly visible over her right shoulder blade.
Hello! Magazine revealed the visible tattoo is a Buddhist spell dedicated to her adopted son, Maddox.
The tattoo is for protection and is translated as, “May your enemies run far away from you. If you acquire riches, may they remain yours always. Your beauty will be that of Aspara. Wherever you may go, many will attend, serve and protect you, surrounding you on all sides.”
The mother of six also revealed that Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Knox, Vivienne, and Shiloh have been through a lot personally, but she has learned from the strength and perseverance they have displayed at such young ages.

“Labeling people and putting them into boxes isn’t freedom. Difference and diversity are what I value most—in my family and in others. I don’t want to live in a world where everyone is the same, and I imagine that’s true for everyone reading this. I want to meet people I’ve never met before and learn things I don’t know. The challenge today is to embrace our differences. And not to be fooled by efforts to divide us or make us fear others. We’re seeing a retreat of values worldwide.” #AngelinaJolie opens up in our December 2019/January 2020 issue. Tap the link in our bio to read now.

Her wish for the magazine’s readers was for them to “remember who they are and to be who they are, regardless of what might be disrupting their ability to be free.” She also added that people should realize that if they are not living a full life, to try and figure out what is stopping them from doing so and move past it to open themselves up to new opportunities.
