Angelina Jolie Never Thought She'd Be A Mother

Angelina Jolie is nearly as famous for her acting as she is her brood. Jolie and her husband, Brad Pitt (as if you forgot), have six children -- Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox. 

And even though we couldn't imagine her without her gorgeous kids, Jolie told the Associated Press that she never had intentions of becoming a mother. 

"It's strange, I never wanted to have a baby. I never wanted to be pregnant. I never babysat. I never thought of myself as a mother," said Jolie. The Hollywood star has made similar claims before, telling Elle magazine nearly the same thing two years ago.

"I never thought I'd be in love, I never thought I’d meet the right person. Having come from a broken home -- you kind of accept that certain things feel like a fairy tale, and you just don’t look for them." 

The "Kung Fu Panda 3" actress is currently in Cambodia for her film, "First They Killed My Father." The Netflix film is based on a memoir about the 1970s Cambodian genocide by human rights activist Loung Ung. Jolie has an incredible connection to the country, as it's where she adopted her first child, Maddox, in 2002.  

"When I first came to Cambodia, it changed me," Jolie told the AP. "It changed my perspective. I realised there was so much about history that I had not been taught in school, and so much about life that I needed to understand, and I was very humbled by it." 

Maddox is currently helping his mum on the film in Cambodia, but in a recent interview, Jolie swore she didn't want her kids to become celebrities.  

"We've always said if they're going to be actors I hope they do something [else first] and then be actors," Jolie told the "Today" show a few weeks ago. Let's be honest, in about 20 years -- these kids are going to rule Hollywood.
