Angelina Jolie does her own stunts to impress her children
The actress - who has an impressive number of action roles to her name, including her latest film `Salt`, `Wanted` and `Tomb Raider` - does as many of her own daring sequences as possible, because she knows her young family will think it is "cool".
Angelina - who raises adopted children Maddox, eight, five-year-old Zahara and Pax, six, as well as three biological children, Shiloh, three, and 20-month-old twins Knox and Vivienne with partner Brad Pitt - told `Access Hollywood`: "The funny thing about having children is that now I am twice as motivated to do a cool stunt because my kids will like it."
Angelina admits she enjoyed the challenge of getting into shape for spy thriller `Salt` soon after giving birth to twins.
She added: "I had just had two babies, and the push to be physically strong was very welcome at the time."
The 34-year-old actress also revealed she is keen to work with Brad again but it looking for the right project.
Angelina - who first met the Hollywood heartthrob on the set of `Mr. and Mrs. Smith` in 2004, when he was still married to `Friends` actress Jennifer Aniston - said: "I love working with him. He`s my favourite actor to work with, and the only complicated thing is to find the right project."
`Salt` - in which Angelina plays a CIA officer trying to prove her innocence after being accused of being a spy - is released in Europe this August.
