Angelina Jolie admits her son is a better cook than her

Los Angeles  - Angelina Jolie's basic cooking skills aren't up to scratch.

The 39-year-old actress-turned-director who is married to Brad Pitt has admitted that her cooking talents are varied, depending on what the dish is.

She explained to "I'm one of those people, I can learn this random exotic meal ... a really interesting Afghan dish with eggplant but I don't know how to make basic spaghetti."

It's not just her lack of cookery skills that stops her from cooking as often, with the Maleficent actress admitting that she doesn't have the patience.

She said previously: "Nobody in my house wants me to do any cooking on Christmas Day. I have no patience! I start things and then I get distracted and l go and I'll start reading over there, or start playing outside with the kids.

"I think you have to be very patient to cook, I'd be designated to the chopping board! Brad would be really good at the timing and organisation."

Angelina also joked that Brad, 51, told her "not to bother" learning to cook after he tasted the dishes she had made and insisted 11-year-old son, Pax, is a better cook than her.

She shared: "Now that I'm officially a wife, I said to Brad that I was going to try to learn to cook properly. He said, 'Don't bother'... he's tasted my cooking!

"I'm not the best cook. Pax is a better cook than me. Pax likes to cook. But I try to when I can. Any house that we're in, we all chip in.

"But the kids are very sweet ... so enthusiastic anytime I cook. Especially Maddox, he's just this little man that's very supportive of me - it's like he's raised me a bit. So I cooked them all breakfast before school this morning, and he has that kind of 'Thanks, Mom! Good job!'"
