Angelina Jolie Wants Her Children to Be Politicians

Angelina Jolie and her kidsAngelina Jolie wants her children to pursue careers in politics.

The 38-year-old actress is raising six children with her long-term partner Brad Pitt, 50, but she's admitted she hopes they decide to take another career path rather when they begin working rather than following them into acting: "I'm trying to interest them in politics. My sons and daughters might fill high-powered functions instead."

The Hollywood couple take their sons Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, and five-year-old Knox and daughters nine-year-old Zahara, seven-year-old Shiloh and five-year-old Vivienne with them while promoting their films around the world, but Angelina claims they also make them aware of the humanitarian work they do. "They know we make movies. But also that Daddy makes furniture and builds houses and that Mummy likes to travel with the United Nations," she told The Sun.

However, despite hoping that her children will abandon the celebrity lifestyle in favor of "high-powered" roles, the Salt star recruited her youngest daughter to star alongside her in her latest film Maleficent, claiming that other children were too scared of her costume: "The other three and four-year-old [actresses] wouldn't come near me. It had to be a child that liked me and wasn't afraid of my horns and my eyes and my claws. So it had to be Viv."
