Angelina Jolie: My Kids Are Making a "Giant Mess" in Cannes
Movie star parents aren't the only ones having fun in Cannes!
Angelina Jolie headed to the south of France the promote Kung Fu Panda 2, and longtime love Brad Pitt came to the festival for his film The Tree of Life. As previously reported, the working parents didn't leave their brood behind!
"Yes, we're all in France. Our whole family is in France, and we're very happy," Jolie, 35, said at a Wednesday press conference for her film. "They're running around the hotel now, playing games and making a giant mess! I'm sure they're having a great time. They love it here."
Jolie and 47-year-old Pitt's children -- Maddox, 8, Pax, 7, Zahara, 6, Shiloh, 4, and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne -- are no strangers to world travel. But according to Jolie, Cannes "can be overwhelming."
The Jolie-Pitts checked into the swank Hotel du Cap Eden Rock on May 11 for the festival. The family bunked in a private villa complete with a chef and pool full of inflatable toys bought just for the kids. But mom and dad still got some alone time! Jolie and Pitt headed to Tetou, a posh eatery in the town of Golfe Juan, for a romantic dinner on Saturday.
"I think the messages are very strong, and it is important," she said of Kung Fu Panda 2. "I think it takes so much talent for the directors and writers to make a film that makes the kids giggle and laugh, and get all excited about all the action, and it’s 3D and it’s beautiful, and somehow, underneath it, they learn these pretty heavy life lessons and that’s something, that as a parent, you really want to be able to give your kids."
