Angelina Jolie has been having cooking lessons.

The A-list actress was allegedly given a crash course in culinary skills by a personal chef while in Australia directing her new movie 'Unbroken' in a bid to become a domestic goddess.

The 38-year-old star - who previously admitted her son Pax's kitchen know-how surpassed her own - is determined to be able to rustle up healthy meals for her six children.

According to Us Weekly, the kids - Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, eight, Shiloh, seven, and twins Knox and Vivienne, five, who she raises with her fiancé Brad Pitt - are the ''worst eaters'' and cooking for them is tricky because they ''want to eat different things at different times.''

Angelina is said to be ''very proud'' of her new skills and has been testing them out at home on her brood.

Brad also struggles in the kitchen and reportedly resorted to asking his chef friend, British star Jamie Oliver, for advice on how to prepare a Christmas dinner in 2012.

An insider said at the time: ''Brad asked him to do it after he begged Jamie for cookery lessons last year. Jamie tried to teach him but he's useless in the kitchen.''
