Actress and philanthropist Angelina Jolie, 38, was seen escorting her children Maddox, 12, and Zahara, 9, through a crowd of fans at LAX airport in Los Angeles, CA on Tuesday. The trio returned home after Angelina introduced her new movie 'Unbroken' at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Jolie adopted Maddox as a single parent in 2002, before she began dating actor Brad Pitt, 50, who adopted Maddox and Zahara in 2007. The family grew to include 4 more children, adopted son Pax, 10, and biologicals Shiloh, 7, and 5-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
Actors Charlize Theron and Sean Penn went grocery shopping with her son Jackson Theron in Malibu, California over the weekend. 38-year-old Charlize, who is originally from South Africa, and the 53-year-old Penn have been dating for at least 6 months. Rumor has it that the couple are ready to settle down after shacking up together for a few months. Both Charlize and Penn have been married before, and both have difficulties maintaining stable relationships. According to a source, Sean and Jackson are getting on great. "They were adorable. Sean was making funny faces for Jackson, and they all seemed comfortable together," said the source who observed the family at Whole Foods. But Jackson's body language says otherwise. The boy never takes his eyes off his mom -- a troubling indication that he may not be entirely comfortable with Penn, who is known for his famous temper. By the way, Charlize is wearing a pair of jeans by Superdry.
