Acting's worked out pretty well for Angelina Jolie -- and her husband, Brad Pitt, and her ex-husband Billy Bob Thorton and even her parents, Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand.

But does she want her own six kids -- who have small parts in her new film "Kung Fu Panda 3" -- to pursue acting careers, too?

"I hope not!" she exclaimed when asked if her children had "caught the acting bug" on "Today" this week, according to the Daily Mail.

"We've always said if they're going to be actors I hope they do something [else first] and then be actors," she said, echoing the same sentiment she expressed in 2014 after her daughter, Vivienne appeared in "Maleficent."

("We think it's fun for our kids to have cameos and join us on set, but not to be actors. That's not our goal for Brad [Pitt] and I at all," she told EW at the time.)

This time around, Angelina and Brad's kids, Maddox, 14, Pax, 12, Zahara, 10, Shiloh, 9, and 7-year-old twins twins Knox and Vivienne all pitched in on the set alongside their mom.

Calling the experience "so much fun," Angelina said she was touched by seeing their approach to the task change over time.

"I think what was so sweet about it was that they took it very seriously,' she said. They came in and said, 'I don't know if I could do this. I'm not sure if I can do this,'" she recalled. "And to talk them through it - it was simple little things - but they really took it seriously as a job and getting it right and not doing a bad job."

Whether or not the six Jolie-Pitt kids head into showbiz, it's already clear they have a penchant for creativity. When their mom said "I do" to their dad, she wore a gown featuring artwork drawn by each of the children.

A few years later, she revealed to People that Brad teamed up with each of them to create DIY pillows, stationary, jewelry and other gifts for Mother's Day.
