Angelina Jolie on Her Kids Becoming Actors: 'I Hope Not!'

Angelina Jolie on Her Kids Becoming Actors: 'I Hope Not!'

Angelina Jolie is opening up about working with her children on her new movie Kung Fu Panda 3.

Some of the 40-year-old actress’ kids with Brad PittPax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 9, and Knox, 7 – voice characters in the animated flick.

“[It] was so much fun. I think what was so sweet about it was that they took it very seriously,” Angelina said. “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.”

When asked if her children wanted to be actors, Angie said, “I hope not! We’ve always said if they want to be actors I hope they do something and then be actors.”

Watch her interview below!

    I love Jack and Angelina together.

  • Passing Through

    Angie must have done interviews the day after the premiere and then hopped on a plane and went right back to Cambodia.

  • wika

    Seems that way doesn’t it? Her schedule is tiring lol…

  • Macbride

    Me too! Angie looks good as always.

  • Macbride

    I hope Angie and Jack will collaborate again outside KFP

  • Jo

    i hope yes :)

  • busted

    IIRC they said something about doing 6.. but I think Jack is hedging his bets.. they usually stop at 3 as he said.. But if it does great then I’m sure there will be more.

  • wika

    But her HAGs say she is a natural beauty. I also find it funny how her eyes looks different too. The eye color to be exact. She really is BASIC

    Brad was crazy back then.

  • wika

    Natural beauty? LMAO! And yeah about the eyes – I think I read here she wear blue contacts when her original eyes aren’t, and Brad once said he likes to stare into her BLUE eyes. I think that was 6 months into the relationship? Poor Brad. Duped all the way lol..

    One of my favorite quotes from BTS: https://www.instagram.com/p/BBEweA5tjJp/

  • Guestz

    Jack is so funny. I love it when he and Angelina do interviews together. This was a nice interview.

    Reminder-Kung Fu Panda 3 comes out this weekend. I hope there isn’t bad weather this weekend. I know it will get number one at the BO anyway.

    “I hope not! We’ve always said if they want to be actors I hope they do something and then be actors.”

    Something like what? Charitable, university or what? Hollywood wants them young if they want to be actors

  • AWHODAT

    “I hope not! We’ve always said if they want to be actors I hope they do something and then be actors.”

    Excellent approach by the good, protective parents that Brad and Angie are! Both of them know the HW game inside-out so who can better help a young impressionable wannabe actor to navigate HW’s cannibalistic tendencies toward the young.

    So yeah….um no. The JP kids wont be suckered into the “Hollywood wants them young if they want to be actors.” With their parents clout, any JP kid who wants to be an actor will be able to independently prove their worth and value to the trade and have HW running after THEM instead of the other way around.

    So dont get it twisted, boo.

  • busted

    He was starring into her eyes to avoid that NOSE and CHIN..

    do you blame him

  • busted

    She and Brad both have a lot of interest outside of Hollywood. I see why they would want their kids to have that too. Besides most of these wannabes want to be famous. And to be honest the JP kids are already famous. I could see them as they grow up trying to avoid all of that craziness they see with their parents.

    I love it when b!tches sit on their big fat arses on their blogs and attempt to tear down Angie when they finally get to see a pic of her on the RC. They all get into their concern-troll mode and bemoan her size like they do EVERY SINGLE TIME for the simple reason that she has it all, including Brad. They cant ever stand it that Angie has Brad.

    (Dont ever forget that the fact that Angie has Brad is THE reason for all the concern-trolling).

    And then they see her again AT THE VERY SAME EVENT via a different medium. They get to see that while they were sitting on their big fat concern-trolling arses, Angie left the RC, sat down with her co-star for an interview where she looked ever beautiful and sexy and sounded ever wonderful and sexy AS. USUAL. and then she jetted off back to Cambodia to continue making her next highly anticipated film…………all this while they remain seated on their big fat arses waiting for their next sight of her.

    Yeah b!tches. Angie has. It. All.

  • Felinelilly

    One of the nicer moments between Roland and Vanessa. lol

  • wika

    Yeah, they have sweet little tender moments which is so swoooon-worthy. Can’t help but wonder how they’re like in their early years. Must be crazy affectionate and in love…

  • Felinelilly

    Yep, there were sweet and tender moments peppered in to the more heavy scenes, and one thing that helped enhance those sweet moments was how soft-spoken Vanessa was almost always and also how they spoke to each other. I agree with you, you can feel how in love and affectionate they must have been before, and still are despite what they were dealing with.

  • wika

    Even Roland- when Vanessa asked him to stop and is almost crying, he will just give in to her. Roland seems pretty soft himself at some points when he realized he’s pushed her too far. At least, from the cut…. apparently in the deleted scenes there were even more aggressive scenes, lol.. ahhh I really need all the extra goodies lol!

  • dianad1968

    I don’t quite understand the tone of your comment, but I will give you the benefit of the doubt that you were NOT going for snark. With that saying, whatever the “something” is, rest assured that they have protective and loving parents who will be there every step of the way to guide them.

  • dianad1968

    I wish he hadn’t interrupted her train of thought.

  • aimee

    Angelina has explained this several times when asked this question over the years. She and Brad are not pushing them to be actors, but if any want to act in the future they only hope their children will have other interests and passions so they have balance in their lives.

  • xica

    Not a hateful comment nor a loving comment. Just a hesitant question

  • wika

    Yeah I don’t know why this was a headline at JJ’s tbh when she’s answered the same qn a few times now lol… but oh well..

  • Felinelilly

    More aggressive than the scenes in the movie? Wow. lol I’m curious but I’ll wait to watch the deleted scenes.

  • wika

    Yup, you probably missed the short discussion. Which is probably good so you won’t be spoiled lol!

  • Felinelilly

    LOL. I can’t stand the juvenile stuff that goes on on twitter, but Amber Rose is cracking me up. She’s no pushover, and Kanye “I’m the best thing since sliced bread” West didn’t need to bring her into his pettiness.

  • Felinelilly

    No I didn’t see any discussion about it, this is when I’m glad I don’t always have the time to catch up on all the comments. lol

  • xica

    True because I find being an actor most of the times such an easy job.

  • dianad1968

    But WHY? There is nothing unusual about the comment to warrant your response…..hesitant, really? And I’m sure lots of parents out there if asked a similar question, would reply the same.

  • Passing Through

    That doesn’t even take into account the nosejob she had in her early 20s. The hens always say I’m lying when I say she’s had it whittled down 3 times – and it’s still huge. But, last time she only got her deviated septum fixed, ya know. Snort. As I keep pointing out – her septum deviated so much it required them to shave 1/4″ off the end of her nose to make the tip less bulbous? Not bloody likely -

  • xica

    Cant I have my doubts concerning what Angelina wants her children to do before becoming actors?

  • Go Figure!

    Yesus knows better than to bring Amber into his bitch slinging. Girl stops his pettiness right at the gate. But why mention her at all? Seems to me Yesus was happier when he was with Amber. Me thinks he always protests too mch when it comes to her.

  • Passing Through

    Wait…are you accusing Ticky of getting her eyes done, too? LOL! Now you know why people are always accusing her of wearing blue contacts. I think her eyes are a bluish gray. Obviously the light and all the shite she puts on her face are going to affect the colors the cameras catch. But, if you look at childhood pix – if you can stand it because she was a hella ugly child – her eyes are kind of grayish.

    PS – if you want a real nose chuckle…check out the original schozz…but…she’s a “natural beauty…”

    PS – And because I’m a mean bitch…a photo of Ticky as a Toddler…hate to speak ill of children, but damn, she was one ugly ass child…

  • Go Figure!

    Saw the Federer/Djovokik match and PT I hope you’ve seen it cause Roger lost.

  • Passing Through

    LOL! Once again I’m reminded of the VF interview where FHvD said you can tell Brad never loses that thing where he “just gazes and gazes at her.”

    Also – you don’t have BTS on your iTunes? I would have thought it would be a worldwide release. Now that Roger’s lost – fvcker! but not unexpected – I’ll have time tonight or tomorrow night to download it and watch it.

  • Felinelilly

    Yep, not only bringing her into it but her child as well, it’s disgusting. You’re right, I was looking at the pics from Amber’s thread and KW looked much happier with her than he does now. Now he’s sunk to the Kardashian level of making spectacles of themselves like fools. And before he throws Amber’s stripper past in her face, he needs to remember how his wife became famous and how she’s always butt nekked for everyone to see. I’m just saying.
