Angelina Jolie on Her Kids Wanting to Be Actors: “I Hope Not!”

It seems Angelina Jolie doesn’t want her kids to follow in her famous footsteps!

When asked in a new interview if her six children — Maddox, 14, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, both 7 — want to be actors when they grow up, Angelina replied, “I hope not!”

“[My husband, Brad Pitt, and I] always said if they want to be actors I hope they do something [else first] and then be actors,” the 41-year-old actress said.

Angelina also dished on working with a few of her kids — Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and Knox — in her new animated movie Kung Fu Panda 3. “[It] was so much fun. I think what was so sweet about it was that they took it very seriously. They came in and said, ‘I don’t know if I could do this. I’m not sure if I can do this.’ And to talk them through it — it was simple little things — but they really took it seriously as a job and getting it right and not doing a bad job,” she told Today.
