London: Actress Angelina Jolie wants to be her kids' friend when they grow up. The 37-year-old, who raises six kids with fiance Brad Pitt, is looking forward to her brood reaching rebellious stages in their lives, though she knows it will be a tough time for the whole family, reported Showbizspy.
"I am looking forward to them being teenagers. I am looking forward to them trying to pretend they are not doing anything wrong. I'll be their friend and I'll be honest with them and I hope whatever they go through they can talk to me. That's the best I can do.
"I'll try to be as close to them as I am now. So when they get to the point they don't want to talk to me, they know deep down I love them and we have that relationship. It's tough for everyone those years," she said.
Jolie also said she is much less strict with her sons than daughters. "Brad is more lenient on the girls and I am more lenient on the boys. We can't quite figure out why that is," she added.
