Angelina Jolie makes first official appearance with her children since Brad Pitt divorce

But the actress looked like she didn’t have a care in the world as she made her first official appearance with her children. The 41 year old took her six kids to Cambodia to the premiere of her latest film, First They Killed My Father.

Teenagers Maddox and Pax joined siblings Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Knox and Vivienne to support their mum as she unveiled her hard-hitting project. The star’s film focuses on the war time experiences of friend Loung Un's life as a young child.

But she admitted it was eldest son Maddox, who was born in Cambodia, who convinced her to take the movie on. "I wanted to focus not just on the war but on the love of family and on the beauty of the country and in fact I wanted to understand what my son’s birth parents may have gone through," she told the Guardian.

"And I wanted to know him better and I wanted to know this country better.
"He was the one who just called it and said he was ready and that he wanted to work on it, which he did."

Angelina’s trip comes after she wrote a passionate speech in response to President Donald Trump’s controversial ban on immigration.
The Republican moved to suspend the resettlement of refugees to America, and denied entry to over 218 million citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries - a move which has now been called off.

Taking aim at his policy, the Changeling actress said: "Americans have shed blood to defend the idea that human rights transcend culture, geography, ethnicity and religion.
"The decision to suspend the resettlement of refugees to the United States and deny entry to citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries has been met with shock by our friends around the world precisely because of this record."

Three of the UN Special Envoy’s children have been adopted from around the world, and she admitted to being worried about their future in the country.
"I very much want our country to be safe for them, and all our nation’s children," she continued.
"But I also want to know that refugee children who qualify for asylum will always have a chance to plead their case to a compassionate America.
"It is simply not true that our borders are overrun or that refugees are admitted to the United States without close scrutiny.


"Refugees are in fact subject to the highest level of screening of any category of traveller to the United States." It was recently reported Angelina and Brad had reached an agreement to seal records relating to their six children, following their split last September.
And George Clooney’s pal was said to be "much happier" since being able to see their brood, after the shock announcement.
"He seems to have a more positive outlook. Things seem much better now. He can spend more time with them," an insider told People magazine.


"He seems much happier. He has missed his kids terribly. The kids are his whole world. It’s all he cares about. "Brad is willing to work with Angie so they can have peace for the kids. What it ultimately comes down to is that he just wants to be with the kids."
