Angelina Jolie's Daughter Wanted 'Dead Pet'

Angelina Jolie's daughter Shiloh wanted a "dead pet".

The 35-year-old actress has revealed the four year old found a deceased bird and asked if she could keep it.

Angelina couldn't let Shiloh keep the animal because of the hygiene issues but she did come up with an unusual solution.

In the December issue of US Vogue, she said: "She (Shiloh) came in and said, 'Can I have a dead pet?' And I'm, 'Uh-uh, I don't think it's healthy, honey. I think they have to put him in a box,' and I had to run out to find, like, a taxidermy bird. I just worked it out for her.

"I figured that I couldn't keep the actual dead bird from the yard, so I swayed her toward one that had been cleaned, at least."

Although Shiloh spends her time finding dead birds, her six-year-old brother Pax is more interested in cooking.

Angelina said: "Sometimes. I'm not the best cook. Pax is a better cook than me. Pax likes to cook. But I try to when I can. Any house that we're in, we all chip in. But the kids are very sweet, they're very enthusiastic anytime I cook."

The 'Salt' star raises six children - Shiloh, Pax, Maddox, nine, Zahara, five, and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - with her partner Brad Pitt, but admits she never imagined she would have such a large family.

She added: "I only planned for two! To each his own. It's one of those things. How you build your family - you have to know what you're capable of handling and how your children will relate to each other. Maybe if you have one child and that child has a lot of needs, you realise you cannot give more attention to another. Sometimes you just know as a parent. We felt we could handle more children, and we have a very happy, very full home."
