Angelina Jolie gets personal about her late mother

Angelina Jolie’s first beauty campaign in a decade was done in honor of her late mother Marcheline Bertrand.

The 41-year-old actress, who is the face of French beauty brand Mon Guerlain, revealed to Marie Claire that it was actually a favorite of Bertrand’s. The matriarch died in 2007 after a battle with ovarian and breast cancer.

“It was a brand my mother loved, so I knew it from my childhood,” explained the notoriously private actress to the magazine. “It spoke to her, as it does to me, of beauty, history, and quality; one of the oldest perfume houses in the world, from France, a country I love and feel connected to.”
