Angelina Jolie was thrilled to get the chance to play a tigress in new animated movie KUNG FU PANDA - because the big cats hold a special significance in her family.
The actress has a tiger tattoo on her back - and it has become her kids' favourite part of their mum's body.
She explains, "My kids talk to it all the time... They just like to say hi to it, and paint it with fingerpaints. It's like a little friend."
