Angelina Jolie has praised her "wonderful" partner Brad Pitt.

The Oscar-winning actress - who raises six children, Maddox, 10, Pax, right, Zahara, six, Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, with the Hollywood actor - is grateful to have had the support of Brad while she filmed her directorial debut 'In the Land of Blood and Honey'.

Angelina told People magazine: "I have a wonderful partner in Brad and we take turns working always.

"So I was with the kids when he shot 'Moneyball', and when he finished he took a few months off while I was shooting this.

"It was helpful [to have them there], but the kids had to be kept away from most of the set. So they would be outside playing with the fake snow and I would be inside working on something else."

The 36-year-old star - who was accompanied to last night's (05.12.11) premiere of 'In the Land of Blood and Honey' by Brad and his parents, Bill and Jane - admitted she "couldn't" have worked on the project without her support system in place.

Speaking about having the trio by her side, Angelina added: "It means everything. I couldn't be standing here without them."
