“Viv still can’t believe I made her a princess,” the “Wanted” star shared of the role her daughter played in the first “Maleficent” film as a young Auora.

Jolie and her ex, Brad Pitt, are the parents of six kids, Maddox, 18, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and 11-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

In an interview in London, the “Salt” actress explained that motherhood is her top priority over her film career, per the Daily Mail.

“I feel I like being an artist [is important] of course, but I’d like the other aspects of my work to take over my life a little bit more in the years ahead,” Jolie shared.

“Really I just want to raise my children well, they’re all at those very special ages where you don’t want to miss a moment and just get it right before they’re out in the world on their own and having to face it,” she added.

The actress continued, “You hope you get all the good stuff in, so that’s my main focus. But I have some other crazy ideas for future things, let’s see what happens.”
