'That's just not funny mummy': Angelina Jolie reveals her six children are her toughest critics

Who needs a director when you have six very opinionated - and honest - children?
Angelina Jolie has revealed how her brood of six children became a regular fixture on set while she recorded her new animated movie Kung Fu Panda 2.
Describing them as like a 'focus group' she said they became 'part agents, part managers'.

And they certainly didn't hold back when it came to expressing their opinions.
Jolie told USA Today: 'They'll sit in a room and say, "That's just not funny,"' admitting the scrutiny from her children keeps her 'competitive'.
The 35-year-old actress, who voices kung fu master Tigress, has six children with partner Brad Pitt - Maddox, aged nine, Pax, aged seven, Zahara, aged six, four-year-old Shiloh and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. The elder three are adopted.
But despite their brutal honesty - and thinking co-star Jack Black was 'cooler than mommy' - Angelina says bringing them along to recording sessions was very rewarding.
'We've got kids of all ages so we joked that we had our own focus group.'
And while she was prepared for them to get impatient watching her speak into a microphone, it actually worked out quite well.
'When they're there and they hear you making kung fu sounds and jumping around, you can see them giggling through the glass it makes you go that much further.'
