Angelina Jolie - who raises six children with fiancé Brad Pitt - says her ''nurturing, mothering quality'' transfer into being a directer.
Angelina Jolie says her skills as a mother transfer into being a directer.
The 38-year-old star - who raises Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, seven, and twins Vivienne and Knox, five with fiancé Brad Pitt - and insists her ''nurturing, mothering quality'' is instinctively transferred to the cast when she's helming a project.
She told HELLO! magazine: ''People are always asking you for something, so the multi-tasking of motherhood transfers very well into being a director. I get nervous though. I see my actors getting dressed up for a premiere and think, 'Did she get the right earrings?' and 'Did he eat anything before he went to the interview?' I feel this strange nurturing, mothering quality for everybody.''
Jolie's latest directorial effort, 'Unbroken', tells the true story of American Olympic runner Zamperini, who was taken prisoner by the Japanese army during World War II.
Meanwhile, Jolie's children can't wait to see her star in 'Maleficent', where she appears as the titular wicked witch.
She added: ''They can't wait. Vivienne loved being on the set. At least she wasn't scared of me, unlike some of the other young children. My outfit was pretty scary but Viv and Knox were thrilled to be with mummy, despite the horns, claws and make-up.''
