ANGELINA Jolie is looking forward to an "adventurous" Christmas.

The 'Tourist' actress - who raises six children Maddox, nine, Pax, seven, Zahara, five, Shiloh, four and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with her partner Brad Pitt - revealed the busy family are excited about taking off for a special Christmas abroad.

She said: "We're going to travel with the kids and go to a random part of the world. We're going to travel and have an adventure because that's what we love to do."

Although the Jolie - Pitts will be travelling, Angelina revealed the children won't have to worry about getting their Christmas presents because the organised mum-of-six has already sorted them out.

She told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show: "I've got it all boxed and ready to go. I went through it today. I'm trying to get every stocking right and all the wrapping paper."

Angelina recently compared herself to other working mothers and said she is lucky to be able to have time off to spend with her children.

She said: "I'm very fortunate in that I can work for two weeks on 'The Tourist' and be off for five months. Most working mothers work a lot more hours than I do. I think I'm just like other women, and every woman has a side to them that's just extremely nurturing, and has a side to them that's behind closed doors.

"I'm a mom first and foremost, and that's what keeps me grounded and happy."
