Anyone who knows anything about actress Angelina Jolie knows that her household is a melting pot of different races and cultures. Despite that three of her six children came from different parts of the world, the Salt star claims that labeling some as adopted and some as biological doesn’t happen in her house.
“I couldn’t tell you in my own home who’s adopted and who’s not,” Angelina reveals to talk show host Anderson Cooper.
“It doesn’t cross my mind. There is something really wonderful when you adopt a child from another country because that whole country enters your house. We have different languages in our house, we have different flags up in our house, we have different food and culture and discussions and we go to their countries,” she adds.
Angelina also wants her children to one day give back to their homelands.
“They have programs in their countries [for] each of them we’re starting. There’s a TB/AIDS clinic being built for Zahara; there’s a clinic already for Mad[dox]. So each of them will take that responsibility. They are from their country and they are of their country and they should know that, it’s part of their family, we are their family but so is their country.”
