Angelina: Being married is tough

Angelina Jolie has admitted that being a wife and mother is hard work.

The Unbroken director married long-term partner Brad Pitt in August, and the pair have six children - Maddox, Pax, Shiloh, Zahara, Vivienne and Knox.

But according to the Daily Mirror, Angelina told Australian Women's Weekly that home life could be tough.

She said: "[Brad and I] work really hard at nurturing our family to make sure that everybody is alright and everyone stays connected. Maintaining a marriage and raising kids is hard work.

"You have to really make sure that your work doesn't get in the way. That you don't do something that is going to put too much strain on your family."

She added that the couple loved to stay at home with their children: "They're six of the funniest people we have ever met in our lives. We love being home and we love being around them because they are just so entertaining."

Brad and Angelina recently hired a security team to protect their children online, and the Maleficent star admitted that as non Twitter, Facebook and Instagram users, they weren't confident on the best way of doing it themselves.

She said: "We have someone who monitors that. It's a scary new world. It's so beyond what we understand. We wouldn't even know what to look for."
