Angelina Jolie says her children keep her grounded.
Speaking of Maddox, 9, Pax, 7, Zahara, 5, Shiloh, 4, and 2-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, The Tourist star says she and partner Brad Pitt make it a point to keep the family together when working.
She said, “You just have to focus on the positive side. I got to spend two months in Venice filming which no one gets to do, with a co-star who’s so lovely, so it’s all hard to say no to.
“We make a point to stay together as a family when we’re filming, in this town you’ve got to. We take turns working so everybody packed up and went to Venice. I think some people are affected by fame, I’m lucky that I have a lot of kids who keep me very, very grounded.”
She adds a few words of parenting wisdom: “Just enjoy every minute of it because it goes so fast and it is the best time in your life. And strap them to you and hang out with them and sleep in the same bed with them and just love every second of it.”
