Angelina Jolie: Kung Fu Panda 2's Adoption Theme And Speaking About Adoption With Her Kids

What did you think of how the adoption theme was addressed in
Kung Fu Panda 2?

ByDana Kennedy

It's not as serious as some of her films, butAngelina Joliesays
she cherishes being a part of theKung Fu Pandamovies - because
they're both entertaining and educational for her children.Kung
Fu Panda 2resonates in particular because it has an adoption
theme. And of course, three of the six Jolie-Pitt children -
Maddox, Pax and Zahara - are adopted."The words adoption, birth
mothers [and] orphanages are happy words in our household, and we
talk about those subjects all the time," Jolie, 35, said Thursday
at theCannes Film Festival, where her movie is premiering.The
Oscar winner voices Tigress in thePandafilms. "I'm especially
excited to be in this movie because of my daughters," she said.
"She's one of the best characters I've ever played. My kids love
it, and in many ways I did it for them."Jolie, who wore a belted,
beige Ferragamo dress with jewels from her own line with Robert
Procop, said her partnerBrad Pittand the family are all with her
at the festival. "The kids are back at the hotel, running around,
having a great time and probably causing a mess," she said. "They
love it here."Pitt, 47, is in Cannes for work: His film,The Tree
of Life, premieres later on during the festival.Jolie said
thePandamovies reflect her own sense of family. "At the end of
the day, we're all big kids," she said. "Life is very much about
family and the family you choose. You can define your own destiny
despite what happened to you in the past."
