Angelina Jolie gets serious about how her life has changed in PEOPLE’s new cover story — but the director of the new Netflix film First They Killed My Father also took time out to answer questions from some of her youngest (and cutest) fans.

During PEOPLE’s Kid Interview, Jolie discussed everything from style to how to deal with bullies.

When 6-year-old Amira asked the activist and director what her shortest haircut was, Jolie recalled when she had no hair at all.


“I actually shaved my head with a razor completely. It was for a film. I was sick in a film so I had to look like I was losing hair so I shaved it off with a razor,” answered Jolie (she was nominated for an Emmy for her role in the 1998 TV movie Gia). “I kind of loved it. It was kind of freeing.”

For more on Jolie and her life now, check out this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on stands Friday.

The actress, 42, answered questions alongside First They Killed My Father author Loung Ung and producer Rithy Panh and discussed more serious topics like when 8-year-old Olive asked her how to deal with bullies. The mom of six admitted this can be a very hard situation but said her best advice would be to “know yourself.”

“You know you are not what the bully says you are—so why is this person saying it? What is wrong with them? Don’t let them think there is anything wrong with you. Know yourself and look at the people that love you, like your family,” says Jolie.

And of course the young fans wanted to know all about the latest news that Jolie is stepping back in front of the camera for an upcoming sequel to the Disney’s Maleficent.

When asked by Imogen, 9, if there would be a Maleficent 2, Jolie happily replied that she is indeed returning to the role.

“I’m so happy and I’m so excited,” said Jolie. “In truth, I really like wearing my horns and I miss them so I want to go back.”
