Bit of a mad statement to make considering his wife has a flurry of them.

Angelina Jolie has admitted that her husband was left feeling uneasy when their daughters, Vivienne, six, Shiloh, eight and Zahara, nine, asked if they could get some ink themselves. Aaaaahh. That is a bit unnerving that they're asking for tats and they're not even teenagers, but it's hardly surprising given - again - their mother has more than a few inkings.

Angelina said: "They're already asking me about tattoos. How do I say no? It's especially hard for dads and girls. For some reason men get a little more sensitive when the daughter gets a tattoo. And Brad thinks the girls can do no wrong. He's mush in their hands."

The 39-year-old actress and her 50-year-old hubby do agree that their brood of six (let's not forget six-year-old Knox, 11-year-old Pax and Maddox, 13) should pursue different careers to their own.

She told Radio Times: "We've always said, if they want to act, we won't let them only act, because it's not enough. They'll have to find a real job at the same time. But I'm hoping that when they see all the other things in the world, they'll be inspired to be writers, politicians, activists. They are very individual people. So I imagine they're not going to follow their mum and dad."

Apart from getting tattoos, that is.
