Angelina Jolie: My toughest critics? My kids

One person who won't enjoy Angelina Jolie's performance as Tigress in "Kung Fu Panda 2"? The actress herself, who admits that she can't stand the way she sounds on screen.

"You know, when you hear your own voice, you can find it quite boring and uninteresting," she tells USA Today. "Suddenly, you get very shy that your voice is not enough, because I'm not musical and I don't know my voice."

Jolie admits that her six kids can sometimes be just as critical.

The Oscar winner took her children to the movie's recording sessions, where they would often judge her line delivery. "They'll sit in a room and say, 'That's just not funny,'" she says.

At other times, they encouraged their mom to up her game. "When they're there and they hear you making kung fu sounds and jumping around, you can see them giggling through the glass," says Jolie. "It makes you go that much further."

All of the Jolie-Pitt kids are fans of the animated characters, and while many favor Jack Black's panda bear Po, Jolie tries to tempt them toward Tigress.

"Oh, there's a little competition in our house," she says. "I tell them, 'I know you like Po. But come on. Mom's cool too, right?'"

      I did'nt see the word rude used anywhere in the artical, critical yes, pretaining to critizing.. which I would say, probably every child has critized their parents one way or another. Some take this artical to seriously, its under intertainment.

    Kids should have a right to their opinion. They are not being bad in anyway.
    And STFU means shut the F*** up.

    The problem with children today is that they have no guidance.They are allowed to do as they please.
    If a child needs a smack then give it to them!

    But people like Jolies and a few others allow their children to run riot. They turn out to be horrible little brats!

    She should either pop them one or send them to bed without dinner. Kids need to learn to behave and not be rude to their parents.

      I feel sorry for your children. Do you live in a glass house by any chance?

      FOR DENISE E. that's not being rude it's them being there " individual" self" and expressing there opinions, and boy i can tell your a " great" mother(assuming you even have kids because obviously you don't know anything about parenting).
