Hailed as one of Hollywood's most bankable actress, Angelina Jolie never fails to draw in the crowd and she's proven once again the sheer power of her talent with her latest movie, Disney's "Maleficent." Turning 39 on June 4, Brad Pitt's lady love wishes that all her children will stay healthy during an interview in "Maleficent's" China tour.
"Like every mother my wish every birthday is for my children to stay healthy (and) for my family to remain healthy, so I will continue that," the actress said on Tuesday during her film's Shanghai promotion.
When asked if she wants to tighten her family's security during her tour, the brunette star revealed that she and Brad will not change their security policies after the actor was attacked during the "Maleficent" premiere. "People like that are exceptions to the rule," she explained. "Most fans are just wonderful. We've had a wonderful experience over the years, and we're very grateful for their support, and it will not change the way we behave."
Now one of her biggest grossing films, "Maleficent" overpowered the actress' famous films like "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" in 2005 with "World War Z" star and 2008 film "Wanted" with "X-Men: Days of Future Past" actor James McAvoy.
