Angelina Jolie gets emotional as she drops off son Maddox at South Korean University: 'I'm trying not to cry'
Angelina Jolie was holding back her tears while dropping off her oldest son, Maddox, 18 to a South Korea University in Seoul. She spoke to college students and revealed that she was "trying not to cry" when she said bye to her son.
According to a video clip shared by jowonnn, an emotional Angelina looked proud before agreeing to take photographs with students. Jolie was seen wearing her hair down and sported a black lace camisole. Another fan who spoke to Jolie shared that Maddox will be studying bioengineering and will live in the dorms. When asked how long she would be staying in Seoul, she said that she would be leaving the same day after dropping him off.
The interaction showed a slightly emotional actress as she was seen clutching her chest and almost looked as though she were about to burst into tears. Trying hard to fight back the waterworks she is seen putting up her hands as she says, "I know, I'm trying not to cry." She then addressed the crowd and said that it seemed like a great school: "I'm sure you're all going to like it here."
Maddox was seen sporting a beige sweater, black slacks, and a pair of black and white vans. Jolie also asked the crowd for one group picture and says that they could all share it with each other. When the photo was taken, Maddox was seen ducking out of the frame.
Several other fans were seen recording the incident as well. A Minnesota student Richard Choi shared a picture with Jolie and thanked her for having a 40-second conversation with him. He also shared an extremely detailed video on YouTube. Choi added that he had spoken to Jolie who revealed that Maddox would be studying bioengineering and confirmed he would not be living off-campus. He further added that Jolie seemed extremely kind while Maddox was rather quiet. None of Maddox's siblings- Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and 11-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne were seen dropping him off.
His school of his choice had been announced back in April. At the time, the Good Shepherd actress shared with People, "I’m nothing but proud. I look forward to all he will do."
