Angelina Jolie says Shiloh wanted a dead pet, Pax can cook



tbd-angelinajolie111210.jpgAngelina Jolie has to shill her new movie The Tourist with Johnny Depp, so she does what all the famous people do: Get interviewed by a respectable magazine and talk about anything but her movie.  Example: She tells Vogue that daughter Shiloh wanted a dead bird as a pet and son Pax edges her out in the kitchen.

"She came in and said, 'Can I have a dead pet?'" Jolie says of four-year-old Shiloh, who recently found a dead bird. "And I'm ... 'Uh-uh, I don't think it's healthy, honey. I think they have to put him in a box,' and I had to run out to find, like, a taxidermy bird. I just worked it out for her."

Meanwhile, 6-year-old Pax has a budding career as a chef: "I'm not the best cook. Pax is a better cook than me," Jolie says. "Pax likes to cook. But I try to when I can. Any house that we’re in, we all chip in. But the kids are very sweet ... so enthusiastic anytime I cook."

And unlike the Duggars, she says she never emant to have a baseball team for a family.

"I only planned for two!" says the mother of twins. "To each his own. It's one of those things. How you build your family — you have to know what you're capable of handling and how your children will relate to each other. Maybe if you have one child and that child has a lot of needs, you realize you cannot give more attention to another. Sometimes you just know as a parent."

Oh, and what about that movie? Sorry, we seem to be out of room.
