Angelina Jolie Pitt thought she had her kids under control — until about four years ago.

Swapping childrearing stories with her Kung Fu Panda 3 costar Jack Black, Jolie Pitt, 40, who is mom to Maddox, 14, Pax, 12, Zahara, 10, Shiloh, 9, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 7, says, “You think the kids know nothing, and then you find out they’re like, ‘Oh yeah, seen it.’ That happened like four years ago.”

Black says while his kids — Samuel, 9, and Thomas, 7 — love the Kung Fu Panda movies, “They’re a little weirded out that I’m in them. They haven’t seen any of my movies except Kung Fu Panda. I don’t like to say, ‘Hey, you have to see School of Rock.’ ”

He adds that as of now, he doesn’t want his kids to watch any of his R-rated films. “I don’t think they’re ready for The Pick of Destiny, where I smoke a bong with Satan. But someday they probably will be.”

Jolie Pitt quips, “Whereas my eldest probably already has. My oldest especially loves Jack’s music. He’s introduced him to a few words, few thoughts.”
