Jolie, a mother of six adorable children, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Knox and Vivienne, said Mother's Day means a lot to mothers and is not a day for one to forget.

She further revealed her kids are always amazing on Mother's Day, adding that the fun for her is not having to plan or do anything. Instead, her six kids work together to surprise her with something. The actress also said:

Jolie said her kids always joke about how quickly their gestures make her cry and make fun of the number of times she cries on the day.

"Those Who Wish Me Dead" starts streaming on HBO Max on May 14. It is an action film that sees Jolie playing the character of Hannah Faber, a smokejumper with PTSD who feels she caused a tragedy.

Jolie said she is ready to come forward with proof and authority against Pitt regarding her claim of domestic violence.

In April, Jolie spoke to ET and opened up on how her personal life has affected her work in recent years. She also shared how her divorce from Brad Pitt made her stop directing.

The "Maleficent" actress expressed her love for directing but noted that a change in her family situation made it impossible for her to direct for a few years. She also said:

"I needed to just do shorter jobs and be home more, so I kind of went back to doing a few acting jobs. That's really the truth of it."
