A smoky-eyed Angelina Jolie, looking very much like she's not the mother of six children, appears on the cover of the current issue of Vanity Fair and talks about her kids, her career and her (possibly) expanding family.

On Shiloh's style: [She's] "like a little dude. Shiloh, we feel, has Montenegro style," she tells Vanity Fair. "It's how people dress there. She likes tracksuits, she likes (regular) suits. She likes to dress like a boy. She wants to be a boy. So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys' everything. She thinks she's one of the brothers."

On the kids: "Mad's a real intellectual, which I can take no credit for genetically. He's great at school, great at history. He feels like he could be a writer or travel the world and learn about places and things. Zahara's got an extraordinary voice and is just so elegant and well spoken. Shiloh's hysterically funny, one of the goofiest, most playful people you'll ever meet. Knox and Viv are classic boy and girl. She's really female. And he's really a little dude."

On working as an actress: "It's not the most important thing in my life. Acting helped me as I was growing up. It helped me learn about myself, helped me travel, helped me understand life, express myself, all those wonderful things. ... But I don't think I'll do it much longer."

On the family bed: [W]e actually have a giant bed. We had sheets specially made. ... Everybody files in and we watch a movie. It breaks all the rules. Mommy and Daddy are very tired the next morning. We have that in L.A., and when we hang out in France, we've got it there. ... We're thinking of building a room just for family sleep."

On having more kids: "We're not opposed to it. But we want to make sure we can give everybody special time. They're kids now, and can play together, but they're going to need a lot more talking in the middle of the night, like I did with my mom for hours. We want to make sure we don't build a family so big that we don't have absolutely enough time to raise them each really well."
