Angelina Jolie says partner Brad Pitt now plays bad cop to kids

March 4, 2012 - London

Angelina Jolie, who shares six children with Brad Pitt, has said that her partner has now become the tougher parent of the two.

Although the 'Salt' star said that she had been the stricter parent in the past, but after giving birth to twins Knox and Vivienne, Pitt has had to step up to the mark.

The 36-year-old actress revealed that Pitt loves playing professor to adopted son Maddox, 10.

"I used to be the tougher parent but since the birth of the twins, Brad's had to play bad cop more often," the Sun quoted her as telling OK! magazine.

"It also depends on which of the children we are talking about. Brad has always had this incredible bond with Mad, who's very smart, and Brad loves teaching him about history and art and culture - it's an amazing thing to watch them together.

"I think I'm a little closer to the girls, maybe, but he's always making them laugh. The children are usually very well-behaved though," she said.

The couple's brood is completed by adopted kids Pax, Zahara and biological daughter Shiloh.

Jolie also said that the riotous hour before their bedtime is her favourite part of the day.

"Our happiest moments are probably in the evening before the kids go to bed. We often play together in our pyjamas after dinner and it's like having a party sometimes where we're all dancing and jumping around and being silly.

"That's when you really feel the beauty of having a family. It's our little world," she added.
