It's good to see that Angie still retains a bit of her wild side!
She reveals to W magazine that she recently took her 7-year-old son, Maddox, knife-shopping and discussed with her eldest child the importance of defending others.
While others may find the choice of gift upsetting, Angelina claims that the gesture is traditional, as her late mother Marcheline Bertrand took her knife-shopping when she was 11.
That explains so much!
Jolie's fascination with weaponry never left her, and the actress still bears scars from experimental knife play in bed and admits that she used to cut herself when she was a teenager.
She says that the pain made her "feel alive."
She also admits that she and Brad do own a gun, which they keep at home and would not hesitate to use to defend their family.
We wonder what kind of headlines these new quotations will spark, considering how a recent Forbes survey found that Angelina's image is one of the most profitable for weeklies.
