In real life, you don’t find a lot of people saying that (at least not out loud). But in Hollywood, it’s par for the course. And why not. Fictional mothers are often only a couple of years (or months) older than their kids. In Alexander, Angelina Jolie plays the mother of Colin Farrell.
Now I know what you’re thinking. Back in the days of Alexander, women had children at a much younger age. But I doubt that girls were having kids at, say, the age of one – which is exactly how many years Jolie has on Farrell.
