Brangelina loves the Big Apple during the holidays!

At Monday's NYC premiere of The Tourist, Angelina Jolie told Entertainment Tonight about sharing yuletide traditions with her six kids in tow.

"I love New York at Christmastime," Jolie, 35, said. "I used to come here all the time when I was a little girl, with my mom, so I have happy memories of Rockefeller Center and the park."

Jolie shared that she and Brad Pitt were "able to take the babies on a carriage ride."

During an interview on Tuesday's The Today Show, she told Matt Lauer how she'd like her brood to look back on their childhood. "[I hope they'd say that] they were loved and encouraged to be who they are and not pushed into something that they're not," she mused.

"Hopefully, they'll be the strong, beautiful individuals that they are today and be happy in their lives, be fulfilled in their lives and be living their lives honestly."

The actress also explained why she took "manners classes" for her role as a sexy British woman in The Tourist. "I'm not completely clumsy or gross, but ... (the character) takes her time with everything. I'm an American! I do 10 things before breakfast."
