Should you ever experience a day on which your coolness as a mom is being challenged, just remember that not even Angelina Jolie is considered a cool mom—her children think she's weird.

In an interview with the Guardian (opens in new tab), the By the Sea director (opens in new tab) said that even though her job allows her sons Pax and Maddox to assist on movies (opens in new tab) and travel the world and stand near Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt on a regular basis, they're still sometimes like "Ew, get away, Ange."

"They think I'm weird," she said. "Maddox talks to me sometimes about writing as if he doesn't think I'm terrible at it…And Vivienne is just happy I'm a tiger in a panda movie. But, ah, she's just the little one—she's all sweet…There are moments when I can be cool, but they like to mess with me. They like to make fun of me. I'm just…Little Mommy."

But she also said they're her "favorite friends," especially when they take a break from their nomadic lives to camp out in their parents' room for "family sleep time," after they've "sat up and talked about life." Enjoy it while you can, kids. *everybody cries, then calls their mothers*
