Angelina Jolie's kids are her best friends

Angelina Jolie's kids are her best friends”

"I have had my ups and downs".

The "First They Killed My Father" filmmaker admits it has been a "very, very difficult" time in her household since she and the "Moneyball" actor split but the children are slowly adjusting to the situation.

Speaking about how the movie came about, Jolie said she and Loung penned the script years ago and they finally decided to make the movie keeping in mind Maddox's role in the movie.

Almost a year after splitting from husband Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and her six children are still picking up the pieces of their once seemingly flawless life.

"I never expect to be the one that everybody understands or likes", she said.

'Everything will be around the children, ' the Salt actress said.

"We all need to do, I think, even more than we've ever done because we're at a very dark time". Everything was just stopped.

She told the New York Times newspaper: "It took me a few months to realise that I was really going to have to do it. Every location, every type of project, I'm going to have to adjust it to however much they can handle".

"I think (that) helped him to grow and evolve in a way that I couldn't do myself". We've all been a bit in lockdown and going through some things.

She added that her children are her best friends and she is proud of how they have "strong voices" and are "empathetic people" but can still be 'goofy'.

"We homeschool and I'm very very aware of their education, mostly very aware of what's lacking".

The former couple's children, Maddox, 16, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, Vivienne and Knox, 9, have been at the center of a custody battle between the two, stemming from an alleged incident of child abuse on a private jet, involving Pitt.

The teen, who served as an executive producer on Jolie's new movie, First They Killed My Father, earned high marks of approval from his Hollywood mainstay mom.

Her Netflix production is an adaptation of Cambodian-born author and activist Ung's memoir from 2000. The brothers actually worked behind-the-scenes on the new film alongside their mum.

Maddox was adopted from the country while Pax hails from Vietnam, and the star revealed it was a "joy" to have her children on board.
