Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt don't want their children to be actors.
The couple raise six kids together - Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, seven, and twins Vivienne and Knox, five - and despite letting Vivienne have a cameo in her new film Maleficent, Angelina is not encouraging them to become screen stars.
"We think it's fun for our kids to have cameos and join us on set, but not to be actors. That's not the goal for Brad and me at all. I think we would both prefer that they didn't become actors. But she was four at the time and other three and four year old [actors] really wouldn't come near me. Big kids thought I was cool - but little kids didn't really like me. So, in order to have a child that wants to play with [Maleficent]... it had to be a child that really liked me and wasn't afraid of my horns and my eyes and claws, so it had to be Viv," she said.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie want to adopt again.
The couple have been talking with their six children - adopted trio Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, and Zahara, nine, and biological kids Shiloh, seven, and Knox and Vivienne, five - about welcoming another little girl into their family.
"Angelina and Brad have spent much of the festive period discussing extending their family. They've been open with the children about it and they are all excited at the prospect," a source said.
The pair initially looked into adopting a child from Jordan, but the process was too difficult so they are instead believed to be speaking to orphanages in Ethiopia, the birthplace of their eldest daughter. "They have always wanted Zahara to have a sibling who shares her African heritage. Ideally they'd like a little girl aged between two and three," the source added.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are planning four wedding celebrations.
The couple - who raise six children together, Maddox, 12, Pax, nine, Zahara, eight, Shiloh, seven, and five-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - will kick-off their nuptials in Australia where Angelina is currently directing her new movie Unbroken.
Although the 38-year-old actress in located in sunny Sydney they will head to natural wonder Ayers Rock - known as Uluru by the natives - in the Northern Territory in December, which is when Brad is due to celebrate his 50th birthday which falls on December 18. "They are having the first party at Ayers Rock in Australia to tie in with Brad's 50th birthday in December. Angelina wants an aboriginal style ceremony at sunrise," a source told The Daily Star.
Brad and Angelina got engaged in April 2012 and in early 2014 they will be legally wed in an intimate ceremony in either Los Angeles or New Orleans. Following this they will head for the Bahamas, a place of importance to Angelina since the ashes of her mother Marcheline Bertrand - who died of ovarian cancer at the age of 56 - are scattered on the island.
Angelina Jolie will be celebrating Thanksgiving in Australia.
The 38-year-old star is currently in Sydney with her six children, Maddox, 12, Pax, nine, Shiloh, seven, Zahara, eight, and five-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - whom she raises with fiane Brad Pitt - while she shoots new film Unbroken. The family will be spending the popular holiday - which falls on November 28 this year - Down Under.
Angelina's father Jon Voight is disappointed he won't be able to spend the holiday with them, but says they are all having a great time in Australia. According to the New York Daily News Confidenti@l column, Jon told reporters at the Chelsea Piers' Children of Chernobyl benefit, "My grandchildren are just terrific. Angie's working on her film and directing her film in Australia, so I won't be able to see them this holiday."
The 74-year-old actor also revealed he was bursting with pride when his daughter won the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the Governors Awards in Los Angeles earlier this month. It highlighted her work as the co-founder of the Prevent Sexual Violence Initiative and her involvement as a special envoy in the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. "It's a very high honor. I'm very proud of her," he said.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's daughter Zahara is set to be maid of honor at their wedding. The couple are reportedly in the final planning stages for their bog day and are set to tie the knot in Los Angeles in the next few weeks.
Zahara, eight, has her heart set on having a major role and her parents seem happy to fulfil her wish and the couple's other kids, Maddox, 12, Pax, nine, Shiloh, seven, and five-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, will also be part of the ceremony.
"Zahara wants to be maid of honor and knowing Angelina she'll let her. Shiloh wants to be an usher and Pax and Maddox have said they'll help Brad's brother Doug be best man. The wedding is mainly for their children and they want it to happen at home in LA," a source said.
The wedding was originally supposed to take place at their Chateau Miraval estate in Provence, France, but Brad and Angelina chose LA so that all of their friends and family can attend.
Angelina Jolie was all smiles at the London premiere of partner Brad Pitt's latest film World War Z - the first public apperance the starlet has made since writing about her double mastectomy surgery last month. The 37 year-old mother of six - who underwent the surgery after discovering she had a mutated gene which predisposed her to cancer - looked radiant in a simple black dress, quelling any concerns of her recovery.
Due to having to attend the movie premiere, Jolie was unable to attend the funeral of her aunt, Debbie Martin, who recently lost her battle with cancer.

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston are "very good friends."
The pair were married from 2000 to 2005 and although both have moved on - Brad has six children with his fiancee Angelina Jolie while Jennifer is engaged to Justin Theroux - they are still close.
Brad's make-up artist Jean Black told Esquire magazine, "I think Brad was ready to soar when he met Angie. This is not to say anything negative about Jennifer. I was part of that and I know that he and Jennifer are very good friends and he cared deeply for her. But in Angie, he saw a very adventurous person who was grabbing on to life and taking it to its nth degree. It was intriguing because I felt Brad had that in him and wanted to unleash it."
While they are close now, Brad, 49, recently hinted he was unhappy during his marriage to Jennifer, 43, because of his drug use: "For a long time I thought I did too much damage - drug damage. I was a bit of a drifter. A guy who felt he grew up in something of a vacuum and wanted to see things, wanted to be inspired. I followed that other thing. I spent years f**king off. But then I got burnt out and felt that I was wasting my opportunity. About a decade ago [I made a] a conscious change... It was an epiphany - a decision not to squander my opportunities. It was a feeling of, 'Get up.' Because otherwise, what's the point?"
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are preparing to tie the knot following her double mastectomy.
The 37-year-old actress - who made the drastic decision to have both her breasts removed after she was identified as carrying the BRCA1 cancer gene, which gave her an 87 per cent chance of developing breast cancer and a 50 per cent risk of ovarian cancer - is planning to marry her 49-year-old fiance "sooner rather than later," after putting their wedding on hold so she could focus on recovering from the gruelling surgery and Brad could wrap up his latest movie.
"Angie is keen on a wedding and the kids are clamoring for a marriage and keep asking Brad and Angie when it's happening. Brad has been caught up in production turmoil with his new film World War Z, so there's been no wedding planning as a result, but Angie has said it will happen sooner rather than later. They are all for all intents and purposes married, but it's become clear that it's important to them to make it official," a source close to the couple said.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are set to get married in May.
The Moneyball star got a wedding license at the end of February which states he and the screen beauty must now tie the knot within 90 days, and if the pair do decide to get hitched in May the date could clash with his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston and her fianceJustin Theroux's big day.
"Brad and Angelina left themselves short of time to sort out their wedding because of the license deadline. A few months is nothing when you're planning a wedding - especially one as major as theirs. Everything points to them getting married in May just after the Cannes Film Festival ends, because they've got their hearts set on tying the knot in France," a source told The Sun.
Jennifer and Justin have been busy organizing their wedding for months and are also believed to be planning their special day in May.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have chosen their wedding rings.
The Hollywood couple have sparked rumors they are to tie the knot very soon after an assistant working for Angelina collected the marriage bands for them from top Los Angeles jewelers Neil Lane at the end of last month.
"On November 27, a stylist for the actress picked up wedding rings from Neil Lane jewelers for the couple," In Touch reports. Neil Lane has previously created jewelry pieces for Angelina and is renowned for his engagement and wedding rings which he has made for a host of stars including, Jessica Simpson and Ellen DeGeneres. In June, Liam Hemsworth proposed to Miley Cyrus with an engagement ring made by Lane.
Last month, Brad, 48, claimed he is in no rush to marry his fiancee and is happy to wait until the time is right for both him and Angelina, 37, even though he popped the question back in April and has been with her for seven years: "We don't have a date yet. I don't know what's going to happen in two weeks never mind the New Year. We're such migratory workers that it'll be a matter of convenience location wise."
