Check out Angelina Jolie, Jack Black and Dustin Hoffman in this Today show interview from the Cannes Film Festival 2011 (video).

First, Meredith Vieira replays footage of how Jack Black spilled the beans about Angelina Jolie having twins the last time they were at Cannes.

Angelina takes it all in stride though, so no worries!

What do Angelina Jolie and Jack Black’s kids think of their roles in Kung Fu Panda and Kung Fu Panda 2?

Angelina says her kids love the character Tigress, “They love her… but I’m in the running with Po. I want them to like Tigress more than Po, but we’re in a dead heat.” Jolie adds that Gary Oldman as the peacock villain is so cool to her kids.

Jack Black talks about how his kids, ages 2 and 4, like Monkey and Viper the best. “They love the characters… they recognize daddy’s voice but they don’t put two and two together.” Black says “They think that Po is actually a bear that exists somewhere… but they’ll get it.”

Jack then shows off some of his martial arts skills, with a disclaimer, “I’m not that good. Don’t think about challenging me.”

Angelina Jolie is adorable here too, cracking up every time Dustin Hoffman says something goofy – I love how she leans into Jack Black for a giggle!
