When Angelina Jolie went through her recent double mastectomy, she and Brad Pitt didn't keep it from their six children.
"We have a policy in our family, no secrets," Pitt, 49, told Extra at an after-party for World War Z. "I mean, there's an age of understanding, so you've got to present it in a way that is age appropriate, but we know our children very well."
The film's London premiere Sunday marked Jolie's first public appearance since revealing she had had surgery.

Even as Angelina Jolie began the process of having a preventative double mastectomy on Feb. 2, life for her six children with Brad Pitt has remained the same.
"Things have appeared normal. The kids have kept their schedules as usual," a source tells PEOPLE. "They have been in school during the day and have attended after-school activities like they always do."
Less than two weeks later, on Valentine's Day, Jolie and Pitt took their 4-year-old twins, Vivienne and Knox, to the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles, where the family explored the dinosaur hall and Discovery Center.

That's a lot of style for a 4-year-old!
In any case, like father, like son as the swagger gene has clearly transferred to Knox Jolie-Pitt.
Knox, 4, joined dad Brad, 49, mom Angelina Jolie, 37, and twin-sister Vivienne, on a Valentine's Day trip to the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles while rocking the downtown chic look and a whole lot of black.
Wearing zippered pants and sneakers, a blazer and aviator-style shades, Knox's look even mimicked his star father's longish coif – though Brad had his pulled back for the outing. The lookalikes later held hands as they took in the dinosaur exhibit.

"When you're overseas, they don't celebrate it in England. And [Angelina Jolie] and some of the kids are overseas in Cambodia this week, working on the [The Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation] there," he said. "It completely escaped me until someone brought me some English pumpkin pie."
