On Wednesday, the Salt star talked about motherhood, sharing parenting advice at London's movie premiere.

We probably all have this idea – I know I did before I had kids – that to be a perfect mother, you have to be a perfect person, and that's just not true. You have to do your best and be willing to put your child before you.

44-year-old Jolie also added that her character, Maleficent, "loves being a mum" as much as Angelina does in real life, too.

A few months ago, Brad Pitt's ex-wife had to say goodbye to her son Maddox, who moved to South Korea to study in college. Talking to press outside the premiere of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil in London, the proud mother smilingly stated:

I'm so happy for him that [Maddox has] grown up into such a good man. I say that 'cause he's smart and he's doing his work, but he's also wild. He's balanced in his teenage years.

She also added that she feels happy to have her kids around while she is touring with the movie cast.

I'm also watching my kids grow up and watching my daughter put on a beautiful dress and figure out the right heels and all that mom stuff. It just means a lot.
