She said: "I've been writing and staying with the kids. I think I should learn French and be a better cook - basic really good life stuff. I'm always doing something. I never shut my brain off. I always have something going on.
"I've been studying French on and off my whole life, and I figured, my kids can speak it, and it's embarrassing that I can't as well as they can, so now..."
Angelina - whose late mother Marcheline Bertrand had French-Canadian ancestry - is more determined than ever to learn the language and says it has become a priority in her life.
