There's nothing like taking your kids for a "number 2" to bring you back to earth, says Angelina Jolie in an interview in the March edition of Total Film, a British movie magazine.

"The great thing about having a bunch of kids is that they just remind you that you're the person who takes them to go poop," Jolie, who's mom to Maddox, 12, Pax, 9, Zahara, 8, Shiloh, 6, Knox and Vivienne, both 4, said. "That's who you are!"

"We have a very normal, very grounded home," she continues, adding that they maintain a happy home life through humor and "[having] a laugh with our kids."

As for her engagement to partner Brad Pitt, the actress compared the union to adopting her kids.

"I'm not somebody that thinks about destiny and fate, but I don't walk away from it when something unfolds," she says. "It's like my children. Especially when you adopt in some countries. All my other children were just, 'This is the child that's been chosen for you.'"

She explains: "I suppose it's like a child you give birth to, as you can't have a say in it. I see that when I look at my kids. It just seems to be right. It's hard to understand how it could unfold so beautifully."
