Angelina Jolie, Kids Bond With Russell Crowe on Les Miserables Set
Who knew Angelina Jolie and Russell Crowe were so close?!
In the U.K. to begin work on Disney's Maleficent, newly-engaged Jolie, 36, spent Monday on a different film set with three of her six children: Maddox, 10, Pax, 8 and Zahara, 7.
A source close to the family tells Us Weekly Crowe, 48, personally invited Jolie to check out filming of Les Miserables at Pinewood Studios and the actress decided to bring her kids along for the day.
"Russell and Angelina caught up at the F Stage, where Les Mis is being shot," the insider tells Us, adding that Jolie and her kids watched Crowe act -- and sing! -- for almost an hour. "The kids were all fitted with [protective] ear defenders because it's quite a loud sound stage. It was really exciting for the children to see the movie being shot."
Pinewood Studios is soon to become Jolie's home away from home as she begins work on her latest Disney project. Though she is not yet fully immersed in filming, Jolie is in the area to do "light testing," according to a source.
Brad Pitt's love -- who confirmed her engagement April 13 -- is "very excited about the film and in such a great mood," the insider explains.
Equally as excited are the Jolie-Pitt kids, the actress recently told Entertainment Weekly. "It's a really great script. I'm having a lot of fun. I've already got my horns fitted," the actress, who begins production in June, told EW. "My kids are very happy."
The project is "not anti-princess, but it's the first time they're looking at this epic woman [in a different way]," she explains of the new take on the fairytale classic.
