Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie wants to raise her six children with an "education of the world" and says that a few of them are already globally aware despite their young ages.

"Some of my kids are from countries that have seen conflict," Angelina told Anderson Cooper on AC360 Thursday. "I usually just explain to them that there are other families in the world that aren't as fortunate as ours and other kids and their mommies... are somewhere in a country that's not as safe. ... So I tell them that it's important for all of us to do what we can and then go to these places and understand what's happening."

As a UNCHR Goodwill Ambassador, Jolie has traveled with her brood with Brad Pitt — Maddox, 7, Pax, 5, Zahara, 4, Shiloh, 3, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 11 months — to numerous third-world countries. "Hopefully I'll take them to as many countries as I can and raise them with an education of the world," she said.

Jolie appeared on the program to mark World Refugee Day. The actress was also scheduled to appear with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at a World Refugee Day event on Thursday, but Clinton canceled after breaking her elbow.
