We discuss adoption with kids : Angelina Jolie

The 35-year old, with her partner, actor Brad Pitt, discusses the family's history with her young children, saying that they are "healthy and happy" conversations, reported USA Today online.

The actress who is lending her voice to Master Tigress in the animated film 'Kungfu Panda 2', which explores adoption, took her brood for the movie but was not worried about awkward questions later.

"I wondered how they'd respond to the themes of the film. We were sensitive to see if there was going to be a big discussion that night about adoption and orphanages. There wasn't, that's because we talk about those issues at my house all the time, very openly. We've had those discussions so often, they're such happy, wonderful discussions," Jolie said.

The actress thinks her kids are her best critics and a useful sounding board to determine what was funny in the movie and what didn't work.

"They'll sit in a room and say, 'That's just not funny.' They keep you competitive, even if they think Jack Black is always cooler than mom," she said.
