Angelina Jolie has returned from the Cannes Film Festival after hubby Brad Pitt's flick, The Tree of Life, grabbed top honors. Now Jolie has critics of her own to face. The couple took four of their six kids to the red carpet premiere of Kung Fu Panda 2 in Los Angeles. There the little ones got to hear their mom lend her voice to the lead role of Tigress in the DreamWorks animated film.

"The kids loved it!" Jolie said after they saw the film for the first time. "They laughed out loud hysterical." It was important to Jolie that they give the film their approval because it "deals with family and adoption," she said. She was afraid that the kids might not take well to "such a heavy issue," but she was pleasantly surprised. "We talk vary openly in our house," she told Us Weekly. 'Orphanange' an 'birth parents' are happy words in our house."

Kung Fu Panda 2, also starring the voice of Jack Black, will hit theaters on Friday.
