When told that Barry referred to her as a ‘Mother like figure’ before, Angelina said that she is very happy to embrace that title.
“I take it, I’m honoured” she said.
Continuing on to sing Barry’s praises, she added:
“When you meet certain people…there’s a lot of people who can do good work but when strong, unique personalities come forward and they have their own, something that you haven’t seen before. It’s really exciting, it’s fun to see.”
Although just 27, Barry’s career has been going from strength to strength, with him staring alongside stars like Colin Farrel and Nicole Kidman in flicks such as American Animals and Dunkirk.
