Like daughter, like mother?

When Shiloh Jolie-Pitt saw her mom Angelina Jolie in the trailer for Salt, the tot with the pixie-cut had some pointers.

"Shiloh wanted me to get my hair cut short," Jolie told reporters Wednesday at a press conference in Cancun, Mexico for the action flick.

Jolie, 35, is in Mexico for film promotional duties with her four eldest: Maddox, 8, Pax, 6, Zahara, 5, and Shiloh, 4. The tykes saw the film's trailer for the first time in their hotel, Jolie explained.

"Half of them were uninterested," the actress said. Her second eldest was concerned when he saw Jolie get roughed up in one shot.

"Pax got upset because someone was trying to hurt his mom. He saw [my] feet wrapped and he got mad. But then I explained to him that I'm fine."

She added: "They're very confused, to be honest. I think they don't quite know what to think. Even the change of hair color is confusing for them," she said of her blonde locks in the flick. Where were the kids during her meet and greet with the press? "They're in the pool," Jolie explained.

The star also dished on love Brad Pitt, who stayed behind in L.A. with twins Vivienne and Knox, nearly 2. Pitt, 46, was "very supportive" of her taking on the role after taking a year off to have the twins.

"We met doing this style of film," she noted, referring to the 2005 action flick Mr. and Mrs. Smith. (Pitt was married to Jen Aniston at the time.) "He knows that in some way the action of it is fun for me. We have fun together doing kind of physical things, whether it's my training for this or motorcycle practice ... it was fun."

"I was sitting in my nightgown in bed feeling very very girly and very soft," she recalled. "I sat with [the script] on the bed...I said I think I found something that will help me get kind of fired up again and physical again."

"Anything I was ready to do he was going to jump behind. But he was happy for me."
