Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's children are making a "giant mess" in Cannes.
The Hollywood couple - who raise adopted children Maddox, nine, Pax, seven, and six-year-old Zahara, as well as biological kids Shiloh, four, and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, together - explained they didn't want to leave their brood behind when they visited the South of France for the Cannes Film Festival.
Angelina told media: "Our whole family is in France, and we're very happy. They're running around the hotel now, playing games and making a giant mess! I'm sure they're having a great time. They love it here."
Brad recently admitted he always knew he wanted to have a large family.
He said: "I know it seems extreme from the outside, but I've always kind of operated this way. When I know, I know, and why mess around?
"I had a friend who had a big family when I was a kid. I just loved the chaos around the breakfast table and the fighting and the ribbing, and the mom making pancakes for everyone or the dad making pancakes. And I just decided then if I was ever going to do it - this left some indelible mark on me - if I was ever going to do it, that's the way I was going to do it."
