In an interview this week on Good Morning Britain, Angelina Jolie, 40, explained to the hosts that when she took her kids Shiloh, Pax, Zahara and Knox, who are voice characters in her latest film Kung Fu Panda 3, to work they said her job as an actress was “easy”.
Angelina said she hoped the exposure to the acting industry would give them a new appreciation for what she and others do on a regular basis. But that didn’t go according to plan, obviously.
WATCH Angelina Jolie speak about children, and violence in film.
“I want to make sure my kids are never worried about me. Even if I’m going through something, I make sure they are very aware that I’m totally fine. I’ll stop and make a joke. I talk to them. I never, ever want them to have that secret worry and feel that they have to take care of me.” – Angelina Jolie A photo posted by Angelina Jolie (@angelinajolieofficial) on
She also reasoned that she told the children about the family’s fame because of the “aggressive” nature of the paparazzi. She didn’t want her six kids to be frightened of what they face in the streets.
“We only explain it so they’re not afraid when they see people coming at you with a camera because it can feel aggressive. We always just say it’s because people are interested in film and because of film people take pictures. We try to keep it that way,” she said.
It sounds like she's got parenting down pat. We just hope her kids appreciate how good she is at her "easy" job!
