Angelina Jolie has let her kids speak in public for the first time since she filed for divorce from Brad Pitt in September. Find out what they said at their mom's big debut.
The 41-year-old actress flew her and Pitt's six children — Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8 — down to Cambodia this weekend for the premiere of First They Killed My Father.
"I cannot find the words to express what it means to me that I was entrusted with telling part of the story of this country," she said at the premiere party. "This film was not made to focus on the horrors of the past, but to celebrate the resilience, kindness and talent of the Cambodian people."
She went on, "Without Cambodia I may never have become a mother. Part of my heart is and will always be in this country. And part of this country is always with me: Maddox."
Then, Maddox took the stage to also share his thoughts on his mom's passion project. "Thank you to everyone for attending tonight. We finally made it," he said. "It's a great honor to present this film to all of you, and to stand by my mother and my family. And now I'd like to introduce my little sister Shiloh, as she has something to say."
"My name is Shiloh and I love Cambodia," the 10-year-old briefly said. This marks the first time the children have appeared at a public event together and have spoken out amid their parents' on-going custody battle.
As RadarOnline.com reported, while Jolie travels the world with their brood, her 53-year-old ex is doing everything he can to win his childrens' affection back following the divorce blowout — including building them an epic "house of fun" at his multi-million-dollar home in Los Feliz.
"Brad's jumped through all the hoops now, and he's gone for child therapy, he's been cleared by the authorities and the lowest statutory rights he has as a father would be overnight stays with the children," a source told Radar.
