Angelina Jolie is getting ready for the premiere of Kung Fu Panda 2 later this month with Jack Black. The mom-of-six sat got to sit down for a chat with Extra at the 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival. She talked about the film, the kids, and the now-infamous tattoo on her arm….yep, it’s for Brad.
The 35 year-old Academy Award-winner stars as Tigress in the animated movie. She said her kids have seen the film, and that they are her worst critics. The movie, which deals with subject of adoption, added: “They laughed out loud hysterically through the whole thing and they just loved it, and then I was serious-mom-in-the-car and said, ‘Does anyone have any questions?’”
Angelina also said that “we talk very openly in our house, so orphanage, birth parents, are happy words in our house, and it’s not a thing. I think they felt more connected to Po [the panda] and they identified with Po, who they think is very cool. It seemed very normal and they loved it.”
Angelina said that while they’d love to adopt enough children to start their own football team, that there is no possibility of adopting “at this time.”
It sounds like the movie is very different than the comic book about her life that she won’t let her kids read.
Kung Fu Panda 2 hits theaters on May 26th, and I’m looking forward to it! In the meantime, you can watch Angelina Jolie and Jack Black’s interview with Extra.
