Angelina Jolie - Angelina Jolie Can't Compare To Her Mother

Angelina Jolie says she'll "never be as good" as her own mother.

The Oscar-winning actress - who raises six children, Maddox, 10, Pax, right, Zahara, six, Shiloh, five and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, with partner Brad Pitt - will try to be a great parent to her kids but doesn't think she'll ever meet the standards her late mother, actress Marcheline Bertrand, set.

In an interview with '60 Minutes', she said: "My mother was a full-time mother. She didn't have much of her own career, her own life, her own experiences. Everything was for her children.

"I will never be as good a mother as she was. I will try my best, but I don't think I ever will be. She was the most generous, loving woman. She's better than me."

While she doesn't believe she's as good a mother as Marcheline - who died in January 2007 aged 56 after an eight-year battle with ovarian cancer - Angelina is starting to look more and more like her.

The 36-year-old screen beauty - whose father is actor Jon Voight - said: "I always felt not traditionally beautiful. I have big features ... as I get older I look like my mom. And I love my mom. You start to kinda put your lineage in line of the different things you are. I see the Native American in me I can see the German from my father's side and you come to love the combination."
