  • The actress-turned-director has arrived in Sydney to film her new movie, Unbroken, but she's got a tiny bit sidetracked...

    Angelina Jolie has got her priorities in check. The A-list actress-turned-director might have just arrived in Australia to direct her latest movie project, Unbroken, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have time for a spot of sight-seeing with her children.

    The mum-of-six took her children Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne for a day out at the Sydney Aquarium, where the famous brood were spotted laughing and smiling just like any normal family on holiday. Maddox did arrive in Australia with his mum and siblings, but wasn’t pictured.

    Angelina is down under to film scenes for her new movie project, which tells the compelling life story of Louis Zamperini.

    Louis (now 96-years-old) is a Los Angeles high school track star-turned-Olympian. He rose to fame in the 1936 Berlin Olympics – but in 1943, his Air Force plane crashed in the Pacific. He survived without food and water for an incredible 47 days enduring shark attacks, aerial attacks and hunger before arriving on a Japanese island behind enemy lines, where he was held as a prisoner of war for two years.

    The actress is likely to spend several months living in Australia with her children, and we’ve no doubt that the gang’s trip to the aquarium is only the first of many fun family days out for the group. Vivienne and Zahara looked so cute clutching their Finding Nemo toys, while Angelina looked stunning dressed in a black vest, black skirt and smart black flats.

    Talking about the film recently, Angelina said: ‘I’ve had the privilege of spending a great deal of time with Louie Zamperini, who is a hero of mine, and now – I am proud to say – a dear friend. I am deeply honoured to be telling his extraordinary story, and I will do my absolute best to give him the film he deserves.’

    Brad Pitt, meanwhile, is in Canada, promoting his latest movie 12 Years A Slave at the Toronto Film Festival. Here’s hoping they’re reunited for more adorable pictures soon…
