Mother-of-six Angelina Jolie says she is "just a punk kid with tattoos"
Angelina Jolie is "just a punk kid with tattoos".
The 'Changeling' actress - who has three-month-old twins Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline, biological two-year-old daughter Shiloh and adopted children Maddox, seven, Pax, four and three-year-old Zahara with partner Brad Pitt - claims becoming a mother has not tamed her rebellious streak.
She said: "I don't walk around feeling I need to apologise or explain myself. I am still, at heart - and always will be - just a punk kid with tattoos."
The 33-year-old actress - who is adamant she will never hide things from her children - has already spoken about the world's conflicts to her young brood.
Angelina said: "Listen, my kids play video games. I let them play with toy soldiers. We don't take war and violence lightly, but we don't hide it from anybody. We say, 'Mommy and Daddy have movies where we play these characters, but there's real death and violence in the world.' "
The star also revealed she has an unusual way of picking the films she will appear in.
She added to Harper's Bazaar magazine: "I tell stories that are about the type of woman I'd want to meet. The type of woman where I think, even if they are silly characters I've played, like in 'Lara Croft: Tomb Raider', there is something about her that will be fun for my daughters to see one day."
