Proud mom Angelina Jolie recently gushed over how supportive her tribe is — and also revealed she isn't letting just anybody into her life to meet her gang of six.
While chatting about taking care of her brood on E! News’ Daily Pop, she said, "Of course you wake up and you just feel like, 'I've got to make sure they're OK. I've got to make sure they're mentally OK,' but honestly I think a few years ago it switched, and they're thinking, 'I've got to make sure mom's OK.'"
“I have very capable children. We're such a team so I am very, very lucky," Jolie shared. "I'm always the one who worries but I don't worry about them. They're cool people."

So when it comes to love, the Maleficent actress is holding off, revealing that the lucky guy is going to have to check off a lot of boxes. “I probably have a very long list [of ‘nos’]. I’ve been alone for a long time now,” she joked.
The focus seems to be on her new HBO film, Those Who Wish Me Dead. The 45-year-old pointed out that she hasn’t starred in an action-packed pic in quite a while. "It is funny. I haven't done action in about 10 years," Jolie explained.
However, the actress hasn’t missed a beat and was ready to tackle this new role despite the emotional turmoil it came with. “I am drawn to people who have been through something and are broken and then find their way forward and overcome it,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “As an artist, it’s very healing to play people like that. She’s been very healing for me because you just get so broken and then you stand back up.
"On its surface, it feels like a great thriller, a great adventure across an unusual terrain inside a great fire," she explained in relation to the flick. "Underneath it, it's a really emotional film. It's about people who have a great impact on each other and change each other. Emotionally and practically, they go through the fire."
Those Who Wish Me Dead is available in theaters and to stream on HBO Max May 14.
