She’s been keeping out of the spotlight since her nasty divorce and custody battle with estranged husband Brad Pitt, but now Angelina Jolie has made her first public appearance, alongside her six children.
Over the weekend, they attended a press conference and premiere in Siem Reap, Cambodia, for the release of Angelina’s film First They Killed My Father, which she directed.

Angelina and her kids Shiloh, Vivienne, Knox, Zahara, Pax and Maddox listen to the Cambodian national anthem during the the premiere of her film First They Killed My Father.
During the film’s premiere, Angelina opened up about her personal connection to the movie and to Cambodia.
"I cannot find words to express what it means to me that I was entrusted with telling part of the story of this country,” she told the audience.
“This film was not made to focus on the horrors of the past, but to celebrate the resilience, kindness and talent of the Cambodian people. Most of all, this film is my way of saying thank you to Cambodia,” she said.
“Without Cambodia, I may never have become a mother. Part of my heart is and will always be in this country. And part of this country is always with me: Maddox.”
Her biggest fans! The actress' cheer squad were her adorable children.
Her eldest son, 15-year-old Maddox, also took to the stage to say a few words.
"Thank you everyone for attending tonight. We finally made it. It's a great honour to present this film to all of you, and to stand by my mother and my family. And now I'd like to introduce my little sister Shiloh, as she has something to say," he said.
Ten-year-old Shiloh then said: "My name is Shiloh and I love Cambodia" in Khmer. Aww!
Both Maddox and Pax helped work on the film, and Angelina previously told The Guardian about how seriously Cambodian-born Maddox took the work.
"He was the one who just called it and said he was ready and that he wanted to work on it, which he did. He read the script, helped with notes, and was in the production meetings," she said.
Angie has been keeping out of the spotlight since her split from Brad Pitt.
