Girl's got a point!

After over six years together -- and six shared kids together -- Angelina Jolie and partner Brad Pitt appear to remain in unwedded bliss.

But, like the rest of the world, Shiloh and the rest of the gang still ask parents Jolie, 36, and Pitt, 47, whether they'll ever tie the knot.

"The kids asked me the other day and I asked them if it was just because they wanted to have a 'big cake,'" Jolie says in an interview airing on Monday night's Nightline on ABC.

"They see movies that have the people getting married in the movies or somebody's, you know, the happily ever after. Shrek and Fiona are married."

But the actress (whose screenwriting and directorial debut In the Land of Blood and Honey debuts later this month) and her man have a good rebuttal for the crew. (Maddox, 10, Pax, 8, Zahara, 6, Shiloh, 5, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 3.)

"We've explained to them that our commitment when we decided to start a family was the greatest commitment you could possibly have," the superstar said. "Once you have six children, you're. . . you're committed."

Motherhood has also changed Jolie's perspective and drive as an actress.

"I don't feel needed in a position of being an actor. I feel like I'm needed at home as a mom, and I'm hoping that I'll find other things," she admitted on Nightlight. "I'd love to be able to write or direct or work on and produce more projects about issues dealing with situations that I feel passionate about."
