Angelina, who is promoting her latest film Those Who Wish Me Dead, spoke about how she is able to raise her kids as a single mother.

She said: ‘I have six very capable children. Of course you wake up and you just feel like, “I’ve got to make sure they’re OK. I’ve got to make sure they’re mentally OK,”‘ she added before confessing how roles have reversed in recent years…

‘But honestly I think a few years ago it switched and they’re thinking, “I’ve got to make sure mom’s OK.”‘

Angelina proceeded to share: ‘They take such really good care of me and we’re such a team. So I am very, very lucky…So I worry. I’m always the one who worries but I adore them. They’re cool people.’
