The gorgeous movie star mom, 38, recently overcame her kitchen-phobia, after learning a few healthy tips and culinary tricks from the pro, the insider tells Us. This will be a big lifestyle swap for the children, who are the "worst eaters," according to the source. And feeding six kids with different food preferences is no simple task: The Jolie-Pitt kids "want to eat different things at different times," the source adds.

Jolie, who once famously admitted that son Pax, 10, was a better cook than her, decided it was time to take control. The source tells Us that the mom is "very proud" of her new skill. (Back in 2011, Jolie boasted that she and fiance Brad Pitt cooked their own Thanksgiving turkey. "We were very successful and very proud of ourselves," she joked to Anderson Cooper in an interview.)

Learning how to cook, however, was not the toughest task tacked by the star.

Jolie confessed Tuesday, Feb. 25 that it was a challenge getting producers to sign on for her upcoming movie Unbroken, which tells the true story of World War II hero and Olympic runner Louis Zamperini. "This has been the hardest thing I've ever done," she told Tom Brokaw on Tuesday's Today show episode. "I pitched my butt off."

Jolie, who up until early February had been filming Unbroken since late 2013, was joined by her six kids on the Gold Coast.

Pitt, 50, who was busy filming upcoming movie Fury in London, oftentimes flew over to spend time with his beautiful brood. But after months apart, the family has reunited in full and returned back to the West Coast ahead of the Oscars.

"Since Sydney, everyone is in sync," another insider told Us of the Jolie-Pitts.
