"There was nothing to do but wear it!" Can you relate?
I have never found Angelina Jolie the least bit relatable. Maybe it's the fair skin and impeccable bone structure, or the fact that I am a card-carrying member of #TeamAniston, but despite all of her philanthropic and humanitarian efforts, the Academy Award-winning mom of six has always seemed like a completely untouchable Ice Queen to me. Or least she did until she copped to showing up at a movie premiere once accessorized in urine.

That's right, the actress and director—who recently confirmed she'll be returning for Maleficent 2, and whose Netflix movie First They Killed My Father debuts today—admitted on the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival this week that she once showed up to an event bedecked in one of her kid's pee.
"I actually went to a premiere once with pee on me," Jolie told the Associated Press. "It was when the kids were little and I just got peed on at the last minute. There was nothing to do but wear it."
Way to mom, Angie! Is this not the most amazing confession you've ever heard? Because while this A-lister may have access to the best wardrobe and stylists and glam squads that money can buy, when it comes to getting dressed and out of the house every day, it turns out Mama Jolie may be just a little more real, a little more human and a whole lot more like the rest of us hot mess moms. I mean, getting peed on by your little one is way more relatable than that time she sipped from a vial of blood, amiright?

Anyway, we are loving this tiny bit of transparency. Can we expect more realness now that Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox are getting older? Let's hope so. Just last night, Jolie toted the whole posse out for her movie's premiere, where they all showed up rocking matching flowers.
"We're really such a unit," the proud mom told The New York Times. "They're the best friends I've ever had. Nobody in my life has ever stood by me more."
Aw, man. I think I may actually be starting to like her.
