Angelina Calls Pitt a 'Great Partner'

Angelina Jolie's latest film, "The Good Shepherd," is a haunting story about the men who created the CIA, whose secrets corrode their lives and marriages.

Jolie plays a spirited rich girl in search of a home.

In real life, of course, her home is with actor Brad Pitt and their three children — Maddox adopted from Cambodia, Zahara adopted from Ethiopia, and their biological daughter, 7-month-old Shiloh.

All of whom are featured in new photos in People magazine.

Each week, gossip magazines say another child is on the way for Jolie and Pitt.

Jolie told Diane Sawyer in a "Good Morning America" interview that was simply not true.

"I shouldn't have been drinking wine then last night," she said with a laugh. "No, we're not. I'm on the pill."

Jolie says that while having another biological child with Pitt is a possibility, it is more likely they would adopt another child first.

"I even think that I did make it clear that we, we would think about adopting next, which is important for me in the balance of how — in our own family, our kids perceive it," Jolie said.

"I want Madd to know that as our family grew and we all came together, we didn't just start having children, biological children," she said.

"You know, that, that yes, we have Shiloh and it's been a wonderful experience, but we want to find another brother or sister in the world for our family."

Jolie makes it clear that she and Pitt are not just randomly putting together a "rainbow family" with children from all over the world.

"You know, now the questions are more when you have a mixed-race family, do you balance the races so there's another African person in the house for Z? So there's another Asian person in the house for Madd? Shiloh has Brad and I she can look at," Jolie said.

"You know, these are the questions we're more asking. What's best for the children as they grow? … We don't just want to have different children from different countries. That's not the point. So we're learning."
