Angelina Jolie's kids thought 'Mr and Mrs Smith' was the ''funnest thing they had ever seen''.

The 38-year-old actress - who raises Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, seven, and twins Vivienne and Knox, five, with fiance Brad Pitt - insists the children who've seen the film, which sparked their real-life love affair, were entertained.

She said: ''The older ones recently saw 'Mr and Mrs Smith' and I think they thought that was the funnest thing they had ever seen.

''Watching your parents battle it out as spies is one strange child fantasy.''

Angelina is set to star in 'Maleficent' as the titular villain in the re-imagining of the 'Sleeping Beauty' story and her children make her put on the character's voice at home.

Talking at the film's London press conference, she added: ''My children love Maleficent's voice, so they always make me do it at home. I think it really brought out the child in me, being part of this film.''
