Comedienne ELLEN DeGENERES has given ANGELIA JOLIE a special gift for getting her pilot's license - personalised aviation suits for her and adopted son MADDOX.

The Lara Croft: Tomb Raider beauty worked hard for her license, and a proud DeGeneres awarded her with a hat, goggles and a jacket to celebrate the achievement.

Jolie, who plans to take pictures of herself and three-year-old Maddox in their outfits to send to DeGeneres, says of her pilot lessons, "It was the hardest thing I've ever done. I was horrible in school when it came to math or meteorology or anything like that. It's hard. It's studying and tests and school."
