Angelina Jolie said Brad Pitt doesn't want their children to have tattoos
"They're already asking me about tattoos. How do I say no?" she said.
"It's especially hard for dads and girls. For some reason men can get a little more sensitive when the daughter gets a tattoo. And Brad thinks the girls can do no wrong. He's mush in their hands!"
Despite his protestations against his offspring getting tattoos, Brad is believed to have 12 tattoos of his own, including Angelina's birth date written on his stomach.
Angelina is thought to have 17 different tattoos including an Arabic inscription on her arm that she unveiled in 2013, likely making their case against body art a difficult one.
The 39-year-old also revealed that the couple have strong opinions on whether or not their children will follow them into the movie business.
"We've always said, if they want to act, we won't just let them act, because it's not enough. They'll have to find a real job at the same time. But I'm hoping that when they see all the other things in the world, they'll be inspired to be writers, politicians, activists.
"They're very individual people. So I imagine they're not going to follow their mum and dad."
The couple, who married in August, gave their children an integral role in their wedding
The couple are incredibly close to their children, and spoke of their desire to give them an integral role in their French wedding in August.
Speaking to HELLO!, Angelina explained: "I wanted the kids to be a part of everything including the dress because that's our family; that represents the way we live our life together."
