Angelina Jolie can never have a bath in peace.
The Tourist actress—who raises six children: Maddox, 9; Pax, 6; Zahara, 5, Shiloh; 4; and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with partner Brad Pitt—is amazed at how well she copes having such limited time alone as she has always preferred her own company.
She said: "You try to take a bath alone and everybody comes in.
"You just give it up. I've shocked myself because I'm somebody that likes to be on my own. But I'm surprised how much I'm very happy to be surrounded by everybody in my family.
"It's alright. I feel that comfort."
Earlier this year, Angelina admitted she rarely has time alone but knows it is the same for every parent.
Describing a typical day, she said: "I wake up. I've got four kids in bed with me and Brad is on the phone and with the twins.
"I just don't get any solitude—most people with kids don't. Sometimes you get a bath or a shower but usually somebody is trying to get in. You get used to it."
However, the 35-year-old beauty explained that support from Brad helped her to keep everything under control.
She added at the time: "Brad and I take turns. Like now, he's working so I'm home with the kids and then in four months I'll be itching to do something. It does balance itself out mainly because I have an extraordinary partner who gives me that time."
