Angelina Jolie has revealed she makes up her own bedtime stories to serenade her six children to sleep instead of relying on fairy tales.
Angelina Jolie makes up ''crazy'' stories to read to her children.
The 'Maleficent' actress - who raises Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, seven, and Knox and Vivienne, five, with fiance Brad Pitt - prefers creating ''moral'' tales about her kids than reading them traditional fairy tales.
She said: ''I read my kids Tashi - they love his stories. It's great. But I usually make up stories for my kids.
''I like to tell them stories every night and I just make up any kind of crazy thing and like to involve them as characters.
''When there's a good story for children it has a moral and that's what I try to teach my kids''
Angelina admits she didn't particularly enjoy fairy tales when she was a child as she couldn't relate to the female characters.
She added to OK! magazine: ''I wasn't into fairy tales when I was little. Many of the female characters were not little girls that I admired, the princesses were not characters I looked up to or identified with.
''I think that's very different now for my girls.''
