  • Angelina Jolie opened up in a new interview with Extra about how her children are coping at home amid the coronavirus pandemic.

  • "They're all together and it's a nice big bunch, so everybody's helping each other out. We're lucky," said the actress.

Angelina Jolie's children are supporting each other as they quarantine amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Promoting her new Disney+ film, The One and Only Ivan, this week, the Oscar-winning actress spoke with Extra about how life at home has been. Jolie co-parents her six children—Maddox, 19, Pax, 16, Zahara, 15, Shiloh, 14, Knox, 12, and Vivienne, 12—with her ex-husband, fellow actor Brad Pitt.

"They're all together and it's a nice big bunch, so everybody's helping each other out. We're lucky," Jolie told the outlet.

The actress also stressed the importance of looking out for the well-being of children amid this unprecedented global health crisis, especially as so many families are suffering financial hardships right now. "My biggest concern actually during the pandemic is children," she said.

"There was a 40 percent drop-off of hearing reports of abuse of children and what that means is that those like the teachers who recognize what is happening to the child and can report it cannot see the child so domestic violence is a very big concern during this time," she continued.

Jolie, who added, "Humanity always comes forward in times like this," hasn't let the pandemic pause her humanitarian efforts. In recent months, the actress has donated generous sums of money to No Kid Hungry and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, as well as futher spoken out about the importance of protecting children from the perils of domestic violence.
