Angelina Jolie recently went to Cambodia where she directed a new film, an adaptation of Loung Ung’s non-fiction book First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers.
The Unbroken director, 40, adopted her eldest child, Maddox, 14, from Cambodia in 2002.

Pitt, 52, opened up in an interview to The Hollywood Reporter in 2012 about the possibility of having more kids.
