Angelina Jolie brought four of her children to Tokyo for the opening of her new film, Salt, and credits Brad Pitt as the reason she can be both a mother and an actress.
“He was just a wonderful father,” Angie said Tuesday of how Brad was while she was working on Salt, the Associated Press reports.
He even brought the children to set!
“They played with fake blood, and they found mommy very strange in her different hair,” Angie said.
So how does she balance being a mother of six and an actress?
“Brad is the word that makes it possible,” Angie told reporters at a Tokyo hotel.
While in Tokyo, Angelina brought along Zahara, Shiloh, Maddox and Pax, and has already been shopping for toys with them inspired by Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki’s animation characters Ponyo and Totoro.
The kids are familiar with Angie’s new character, but they won’t be allowed to see the film.
“I think it’s very hard for them to see someone trying to kill their mom, even if she wins,” Angie said.
But they have seen her on set!
Angie surprised Maddox, 8, when she was disguised as a male naval officer for Salt, “And I said, ‘Honey, it’s mommy,’” Angie said.
“I think I freaked him out,” she explained, adding she then proved it was her by removing the fake ears, hands and nose.
“I play these roles, but I’m always in every minute their mom first,” Angie said. “I’m a bit of a goofy. I’m funny at home, I think.”
