"I have had my ups and downs". "We all have our hard times, but as a mother you also have a responsibility first and foremost towards the kids", she explained.

Speaking about how the movie came about, Jolie said she and Loung penned the script years ago and they finally decided to make the movie keeping in mind Maddox's role in the movie.

After her split from her ex Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie has found the cutest dates to accompany her on the red carpet: Her six kids.

That said, she notes that everyone is ready to come out of "lockdown", and confirms she is going to go back to acting (including starring in "Maleficent 2").

'Everything will be around the children, ' the Salt actress said. They're the best friends I've ever had. Everything was just stopped.

She said, "When I first read it, it really affected me, but I didn't think of making a film... Every location, every type of project, I'm going to have to adjust it to however much they can handle".

After splitting from Brad last September, Angelina and the children rented a house for nine months before she splashed out on a new pad in Los Angeles, and she admitted it took a while to make a decision about having to find a permanent new "base".

"I think they're itching to get out in the world again", she says.

The Oscar victor has largely kept her brood out of the public eye, buying a large estate in Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles for $25 million as a new home base for the family.

"We homeschool and I'm very very aware of their education, mostly very aware of what's lacking".

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight Canada this week, Angelina said: 'It was a joy. "I guess I am a little bit stronger".

When I looked over and I saw (Maddox) and Pax working with the other crew. I mean, this one was very particular and very important.
