Angelina Jolie is "just" a mother.

The Oscar-winning actress - who raises six children with her partner Brad Pitt - believes it is more important to look after her brood than star in movies despite her glittering Hollywood career as an A-list actress.

She said: "I am just a mom and that's how I am going to be the rest of my life. That sounds so funny, I mean, A-list actor. I am so happy to be working as an actor and to take some time off whenever I can, and that's something not a lot of people can do. I am so fortunate to juggle both."

The 34-year-old beauty loves being a mother to her three adopted children, Maddox, Pax, and Zahara and three biological children Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne.

She is reportedly keen to adopt another daughter from Syria, Asia despite Brad's reluctance to have another child.

A source explained: "He has made it clear that six children are more than he can handle. The idea of one more seemed ludicrous, but Angie is determined to complete her rainbow family."
