Angelina Jolie has said that Mr and Mrs Smith is her children's favourite film from her back catalogue as they get a kick out of seeing their parents play rival spies.

Jolie and Brad Pitt met 10 years ago while filming the comedy action film and the movie has gone down a treat with their children.

Speaking to Vogue the Maleficent star said, "The older ones recently saw Mr and Mrs Smith and I think they thought that was the funnest thing they had ever seen. Watching your parents battle it out as spies is one strange child fantasy."

The actress added that her kids love her Maleficent character's voice, "My children love Maleficent's voice, so they always make me do it at home. I think it really brought out the child in me, being part of this film."

Jolie also revealed that she plans to take a break from acting for a while, "It's going to take more of a back seat. I've had a wonderful career... I'm sure there will be a few more films, but I am happy that I am able to be more selective and have fun with roles like this – but I would like to focus more on writing and directing and above all, I would like to focus more on my work with the UN and the PSBI."

Maleficent is in cinemas from May 28.
