The mom-of-six was accompanied by four of her children to the Toronto Film Festival for the debut of The Breadwinner. The 42-year-old couldn’t hide her iconic grin as she walked the carpet with Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and twins Knox and Vivienne, both 9. She’s also a mom to two adopted sons, Maddox, 16, and Pax, 13.

The animation, produced by Brad Pitt’s ex-wife, follows the story of one Afghani girl’s struggle. Angelina was dressed in an all white ensemble and was spotted happily chatting and introducing her little ones to the film’s director Nora Twomey and Saara Chaudry, the girl who voices the character of Pavana.
The Toronto film festival is a huge event for the star. Angie will share her latest directorial project, Netflix’s First They Killed My Father. She will also feature in a public panel discussing her illustrious career.
Just last week, Angie reflected on her path to Hollywood. Taking part in a Q&A, she mused that her mother Marcheline Bertrand always wanted her daughter to be an actress. “I realized when my mom passed away, (acting) was something I was very much doing for her.”
Angelina’s mom passed away in 2007 following a long battle with ovarian and breast cancer. “I haven’t done much since she passed away, in front of the camera,” she remarked. “Now I’m going to do it for my kids.”
The humanitarian also spoke about the importance of being a role model. “I have a lot to learn. I need role models myself. I try to be that for my children.”
