Angelina Jolie is one of the most talked-about women in the world, making viral news for everything from her new Marvel role to her separation from Brad Pitt, with the couple finally announced to be single this year (three years after filing for divorce), choosing to ‘bifurcate’ their marriage.

It’s her role as mother however that has made the most news this week, with the 44-year-old never missing an opportunity to talk proudly about her children.

Ange’s 18-year-old son Maddox is currently studying biochemistry at Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea, something that has made a lot of news this past few months, with the actress recalling how she ‘ugly cried’ as she dropped him off at his university dormitory.

This week, Angelina took her five other children - Pax, Zahara, Knox, Vivienne and Shiloh, along with her to the LA premiere of her new film Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. And taking to the red carpet to talk about her character, Angelina opened up about her own experiences of becoming a mother.

‘I questioned when I was a mother if I was good enough’, the actress explained.

This has to be the most relatable motherhood fear of all time.

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil comes to UK cinemas on 18 October.
