Nothing gets lost in transition in the Pitt-Jolie household! Angelina Jolie Pitt, during an interview on Friday with BBC, revealed that her children are all bilingual, and some are even trilingual.
In all, they speak eight languages among them, including English.
"All the kids are learning different languages," she told BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour of her six kids. "I asked them what languages they wanted to learn and [Shiloh] is learning Khmai, which is the Cambodian language, Pax is focusing on Vietnamese, Mad has taken to German and Russian, [Zahara] is speaking French, Vivienne really wanted to learn Arabic, and Knox is learning sign language."
Angie is beyond thrilled with her children's passion for languages.
"I suppose that just means you don't know who your children are until they show you who they are, and they are just becoming whoever they want to be," the actress and humanitarian said. "It's been my dream. They're interested in other cultures."
In 2002, Anglie famously adopted her eldest son, Maddox, who is now 14, from Cambodia. A few years later she adopted her daughter Zahara, now 11, from Ethiopia. She then began her romance with now-husband Brad Pitt and they adopted Pax, 12, from Vietnam. The couple also shares three biological kids: daughter Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 7.
Although the six are children of arguably Hollywood's biggest couple, momma Angie says none of them are interested in getting into the family business, but they are interested in the entertainment world.
"None of my kids want to be actors," she said. "They are actually very interested in being musicians. I think they like the process of film from the outside. [Maddox] is interested in editing … Pax loves music and deejaying."
During the wide-ranging interview, Angie also spoke of how she addresses the idea of refugees to her kids, which is certainly in the fabric of the family, as three of her kids where orphaned during war.
"We think of the people who are going through these difficult situations, but we also talk about their resilience and their strength and we admire them, so they're heroes in my house," she said. "My kids have met children who are refugees and are friends with children who are refugees and children from many countries ... around the world from living in different circumstances. I never want them to look at these people with pity."
