Angelina Jolie Talks Openly About Adoption & Orphanges With Her Kids
Angelina Jolie worried about how her adopted children would react to new animated movie "Kung Fu Panda 2" because the story follows the main character's search for his biological father.
The star, who voices the role of warrior Tigress, treated her brood of six with partner Brad Pitt to an early screening of the film, but she admits she was wracked with nerves when they actually sat down to watch it.
She tells USA Today, "I wondered how they'd respond to the themes of the film. (We were) sensitive to see if there was going to be a big discussion that night about adoption and orphanages."
Jolie and Pitt were more than ready to tackle any tough questions about the subject after the movie, but there was no need.
The actress explains, "But that's because we talk about those issues at my house all the time, very openly. We've had those discussions so often, they're such happy, wonderful discussions."
Jolie and Pitt share adopted kids Maddox, nine, seven-year-old Pax and six-year-old Zahara, as well as three biological children - two-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, and four-year-old daughter Shiloh.
