Last updated at 15:16 09 September 2007

Hollywood A-lister Angelina Jolie has admitted she is desperate to add to the "rainbow" family she's acquired with partner Brad Pitt.

Jolie, 32, and Pitt, 43, have already adopted three children, Cambodian Maddox, Vietnamese Pax, and Ethiopian Zahara, as well as having one biological child, Shiloh.

And after placing her career on ice to raise the children, Jolie says she is keen to have more.

Jolie said: "You know, I always wanted to adopt kids. My mother used to say that I talked about it when I was a little girl. And I've always wanted a big family, and Brad's the same.

"We are enjoying the children together. So, as much as it's absolute chaos and sometimes we look at each other and think, 'My God! What have we done?', there are many more moments when I couldn't imagine any one of them not being here.

"They are such big personalities, and it's so exciting to watch them grow up. Brad and I would like more kids, but we're aware that right now we can give special time to each one of them every day, and we want to make sure we continue to do that."

Jolie told The Times that her and Pitt have been much more selective with the roles they've taken so that they can spend more time with the children.

She said: "I haven't worked for nine months, so I've been balancing kids and doing everything, and now I'm ready to work," Jolie said.

"When I work, Brad stays at home with the kids and vice versa. When we were in India, it was his job to entertain them and he loves that.

"So it's all about scheduling. Fortunately, they love travelling, so we go everywhere as a family. I kind of feel that our home is wherever we are."
