In the December issue of VOGUE, Angelina Jolie talks about the side of her we don’t see: her mom side.
Angelina is a great mother to her six kids with Brad Pitt — Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne — but she admits she’s not the best cook.
“I’m not the best cook. Pax [who turns 7 Nov. 29] is a better cook than me. Pax likes to cook. But I try to when I can. Any house that we’re in, we all chip in. But the kids are very sweet … so enthusiastic anytime I cook,”
“Especially [9-year-old] Maddox, he’s just this little man that’s very supportive of me – it’s like he’s raised me a bit. So I cooked them all breakfast before school this morning, and he has that kind of ‘Thanks, Mom! Good job!’ “
Even with have a dozen little ones, Angelina struggles to find the right answers to things they throw at her:
“Shiloh found a dead bird, so she came in and said, ‘Can I have a dead pet?’ And I’m . . . ‘Uh-uh, I don’t think it’s healthy, honey. I think they have to put him in a box,’ and I had to run out to find, like, a taxidermy bird.”
“I just worked it out for her.”
Too cute! They sound like such a great family. Pick up the new issue of Vogue with this interview — Angelina on the cover — on newsstands everywhere.
