Angelina revealed: "I wanted it to be close to their dad, who is only five minutes away. I felt a little pressure moving in. Like I had snuck into where DeMille and Chaplin would hang out. I love most that there is no entertainment room, but lots of pathways and places to walk and think. I feel very fortunate we have that at this time."
Angelina shares her home with her six children, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox.

The Mr and Mrs Smith actress is believed to have spent £19million on the Hollywood mansion. It has six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and the 2.1acre estate is clearly picture perfect.
Although Angelina and her children love their LA pad, they are always visiting other countries as the actress tries to raise them as "global citizens".
She reported: "They are from across the globe. When I see Mad in Cambodia, it’s his home. He is a Cambodian man, and at the same time, he is also an American citizen and a global citizen. But it’s not just important for him to go there, it’s important for his siblings to go there, too. We’ve been very blessed to have a family of different cultures and races. We are all learning from each other."
