Angelina Jolie, who once was known as an eccentric woman, also likes to see her rebellious side in her six children.

In conversation with BBC Radio, the 43-year-old Jolie tells her that her children have helped her to become calmer. “Children help you become more mature, and they also add a bit of rebellion.”

Al Jolie’s children – she is the mother of seventeen-year-old Maddox, the fourteen-year-old Pax, the thirteen-year-old Zahara, the twelve-year-old Shiloh and the ten-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne – have that rebellious side, says the actress.

“I do not want them to behave like perfect people who only say politically correct things, they have to be able to be themselves.”

Jolie recognizes herself in her children. “I was a bit of a punk when I was young, I thought it was cool to stand for something, to be courageous in the life choices you make and to do something in your own way.” I do not feel like I’m have changed a lot. “

Before Jolie’s marriage with her now ex-husband Brad Pitt, Jolie was known for her eccentric behavior. For example, she carried the blood of her former partner Billy Bob Thornton in a chain around her neck.
