Angelina Jolie on Filming 'Kung Fu Panda 2': "You Work in Pajamas & Bring Your Kids"
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are all about family, as they showed last night at the premiere of Angie's flick Kung Fu Panda 2. The proud mom brought her brood along for the festivities at Graumanâs Chinese Theatre in Hollywood and she opened up about her love for filming animated films!Â
When asked if she would work on more animated flicks, Angie told reporters, "I would love to do more. You come to work in your pajamas, you bring your kids, you work with Jack Black and Gary Oldman. Thereâs no easier job in the world."
Brad and Angie brought along children Maddox, Zahara, Pax and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt to check out the family-friendly film.
"They loved the first one, and theyâre all still growing up. So the little ones donât understand, the older ones think itâs cool," Angie said of her kids' reactions to hearing her voice in the film "But thereâs a great scene in it where they suddenly catch up with the "Furious Five" and theyâre all tied up. What I appreciated was that my children said, âHow did they get you tied up mom?â And I said, 'That is a very good question.' "
Angie, plays the Tigress in the film, a strong-willed female.
"I like her, I have her weakness too," Angie shared. "Sheâs tough but sometimes she doesnât know how to be soft, and my kids have certainly helped with that too. To get me a little softer, because I have a little bit of a hard shell sometimes."
The Oscar-winning actress also opened up about the messages in the new.
"One is about inner peace and figuring out who you are and coming to terms with that, and there is a message about what family is and how a family is made," she shared. "Today more than ever we really understand that family comes in all different ways, two mothers, two fathers, single parents, different races, some are adopted and so family is where the love is. Family is where you find loyalty and friendship.
