The actresses both brought their children to the Eternals premiere in Los Angeles, Calif. earlier this week.

"You will never be as vulnerable as you are when you have a child. Because of this, you have to be stronger than you have ever been," the Frida star told Extra when asked how being a mom has changed her perspective on the strength and power of women. "You have to be respectful that they are an individual and finding that balance," she added.

"I became a mother in my 20s… Something happened to Mad[dox] when he was little; it was an injury… and I was terrified, and I heard myself say, 'It’s gonna be fine, it’s gonna be fine, it’s gonna be okay'… And I realized I had become the person that was always going to make everything okay… not the person that worries, that’s dramatic, that’s upset that I have spent my whole life being in that darker space… That happens in a minute," Jolie said.

"I love it… I love the crazy, individual, rebellious. I love it," the Maleficent actress said about letting her children be individuals who make their own mistakes.

The pair became close friends off-screen with Jolie saying that Hayek was the feistier of the pair. "Oh, no, no, no… We have different styles… but we’re both feisty," the 55-year-old quipped. "That’s true, that’s true," Jolie agreed.

"I was too easy on you," the 46-year-old joked about pushing Hayek's face into her birthday cake. "Yours is coming up next," Hayek replied. "It’s gonna be fun, but it’s gonna be your kids who are gonna do it."
