Angelina Jolie - Angelina Jolie to spend Thanksgiving in Australia

Angelina Jolie will be celebrating Thanksgiving in Australia.

The 38-year-old star is currently in Sydney with her six children, Maddox, 12, Pax, nine, Shiloh, seven, Zahara, eight, and five-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - who she raises with fiancé Brad Pitt - while she shoots new film 'Unbroken'.

The family will be spending the popular holiday - which falls on November 28 this year - Down Under.

Angelina's father Jon Voight is disappointed he won't be able to spend the holiday with them but says they are all having a great time in Australia.

According to the New York Daily News Confidenti@l column, Jon told reporters at the Chelsea Piers' Children of Chernobyl benefit: ''My grandchildren are just terrific. Angie's working on her film and directing her film in Australia, so I won't be able to see them this holiday.''

The 74-year-old actor also revealed he was bursting with pride when his daughter won the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the Governors Awards in Los Angeles earlier this month.

It highlighted her work as the co-founder of the Prevent Sexual Violence Initiative and her involvement as a special envoy in the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

He said: ''It's a very high honour. I'm very proud of her.''

Angelina has been keen to immerse her kids in local culture while in Australia and made sure her brood had the chance to taste traditional foods including kangaroo and witchetty grubs - an Aussie term for white moth larvae, a staple food of Aboriginal women and children.

A source previously said: ''Whenever they are in new countries the kids have a rule about trying local food.

''The tour guide took them to a specialist Aussie restaurant and they had a mix of kangaroo and emu on a pizza.''
