Angelina Jolie: no lectures

Actress Angelina Jolie doesn't like to "lecture" her children.

Actress Angelina Jolie doesn’t like to “lecture” her children.

The Salt star – who raises six kids, Maddox (10), Pax (8), Zahara (6), Shiloh (5), and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, with partner Brad Pitt – explained while she likes to educate her brood about her work with refugees around the world, she doesn’t tell them to think in a set way.

“I’m not one of those moms who kind of lectures my kids. But I do tell them, whenever I go on a trip, where I’m going and why.” She says.

“And on some occasions, they’ve come with me to different refugee camps. And they also go to their home countries a lot.”

With Maddox, Pax and Zahara being adopted from Cambodia, Vietnam and Ethiopia respectively, Angelina admitted she is keen for her offspring to see the world outside the glitz and glamour of Hollywood.

“Hopefully they live in the world, and they see the world really as it is, outside of Hollywood.” Angelina says.

“If they really live in the world and spend time with friends around the world from all different types of backgrounds, they will just see things as they are.”
