Angelina Jolie: The Kids “Really Love To Travel”

Angelina Jolie: The Kids "Really Love To Travel"

New York City, Budapest, London, Glasgow, Hollywood, Malta, Cannes, New Orleans, Namibia: Over the past year we’ve spotted Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt‘s globetrotting bunch in cities across the world. The movie star mom reports that her big brood has no plans on settling down any time soon.

“I don’t want to talk about it,” Angelina said when asked by Anderson Cooper this week where her family may eventually put down permanent roots. “I don’t want to settle. I love traveling.”

She insists that she’s not the only one: “They really love to travel, and we have certain things that are comforts of home,” she says of her 6 kids. “And also, because they’re such a big traveling pack it’s not one child moving around the world and missing friends. There are so many of them they have constant play dates and they’re always together…. Because we have traveled a lot, we’re kind of lucky in that we have friends around the world, so if we end up in Budapest or Germany or Africa or Vietnam, they actually call their friends.”

Angelina admits that as the children grow older they may not be so fond of being constantly on the move – but she says she’ll deal with that when the time comes.

“I will listen, as my mother would have, to them,” she says. “And if they start to complain about it … [But] right now they love it. Right now if they’re in one place for two months they want to know why we’re not getting on an airplane.”

“I’m sure they’re gonna say, ‘Mom, let me stay home,’” Angie continues. “It’s going to happen and I’m going to cry. We’ll see what happens. They’ll probably all end up living all around the world. My old age will be Brad and I traveling around the world to try to visit our children in random countries.”

    The children are well schooled. They go to an International School based in each country and can pick up where they left off. Plus, I’m sure they have tutors to fill in any gaps.

      Your information is outdated. Maddox gave up the lycée français a while ago and I’m not sure the others even had a chance to enter there. It turned out that the constant moving and uprooting was a problem, after all.

    Those kids are lucky. They get to see parts of the world most people will never see.

    As long as they are getting an education and enjoy the travel, they are very fortunate and will learn so much from traveling. Lucky kids!

    I am all for cultural enrichment but it’s never good to constantly disrupt a child’s environment, particularly the littlest ones.

    What about friends? Do these children ever get the chance to make lasting friendships with kids other than their siblings? Socialization is very difficult for kids who have to constantly start from zero in a new place, at a new school, with new kids. I know she SAYS they just “call their friends” when they end up in a place where they know people, but it’s not as easy for kids to just pick up where they left off with a friend they rarely see. I think she’s in serious denial if she really thinks this kind of lifestyle is what’s best for her kids.

    Anonymous @2:28pm@ If I go by your logic then all celebrity disrupt their kids environment, for example: Jennifer Garner and Ben kids don’t get to see him for weeks at a time when he off filming that’s disrupt their kids environment, seeing daddy one day then him being gone for a week, 2 if not more is very disrupting particularly the littlest ones. Regular parents that’s in the army who kids don’t get to see them for months or years at a time disrupt the kids environment particularly the littlest ones.

      Anonymous @ 6:02 The situations you just described aren’t good either. At the very least, hopefully the children in your scenarios come home to the same house, bed, routine, etc. each night. Environmental stability is of great importance for the healthy development of a child; any parent who is capable of providing that and chooses not to is making a selfish choice.

    Anonymous @4:45pm Sorry but your info is out date Brad and Angelina have both said couple ago in a interviews that all the kids are in the lycée français program and the tutors fallow the same lycée français program so with in school or home school they on track and if I remember right it was the paparizzi falowing them to the school that was the problem because the other parents were complaining about the privy of their kids not them moving.

    Anonymous @2:29pm@ Brad said in an interview last month that if the kids what to talk to their friends they call, use web came for they fly out the friends and their families to spend time with them.

    FYI the lycée français is worldwide program not just one school in NY so it doesn’t matter where they are in the world and when the family is in LA the kids go to the same school as Kimora Lee Simmons daughters, there are photos of both Kimora and Angelina last winter at the kids school.
    Here the photo:

    Funny the kids didn’t seem to have any problems socializing with Kingston and Zuma two month ago in London, like another poster said it may work for them and their kids. Johnny Depp must be in serious denial also because his kids also travel with him and partner Vanessa.

    Here the interview were Johnny says it and link to the interview

    (On managing fatherhood and fame: “When I’m working, she comes with me and we take the kids. When she’s working, I go with her and the kids.” )

    There’re many kids which are homeschooled, why this shouldn’t be ok for the Pitt’s kids? These kids are able to see the world and get to know many different places and people, this is a plus in their education.

    The JP kids are certainly well schooled. Read somewhere that the older boys have been rolled into Lycee Francais school which is available in many countries the family visits. Like Angelina said ther sure will be a time when the children one by one will say that they want to stay home but looks like at the moment all six are enjoying the travelling. These kids seem so lucky to visit different countries learning about new people and countries.
