During her Nov. 27 60 Minutes interview, Angelina admitted her parenting secret — she learned everything she knows from her own mother!

Angelina Jolie is a devoted mom to her six kids with Brad PittMaddox, 10, Pax, 8, Zahara, 6, Shiloh, 5, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 3 — but she says she’ll never meet the example her mom, Marcheline Bertrand set for her.

“I will never be as good a mother as she was,” Angelina told 60 Minutes. “I will try my best, but I don’t think I ever will be.”

The 36-year-old actress teared up as she described her much-beloved mom, who passed away in 2007: “My mother was a full-time mother. She didn’t have much of her own career, her own life, her own experiences. Everything was for her children.”

Angelina said that’s the kind of parent she wants to be, but admitted that it was her mother who taught her about motherhood. Although Angelina’s known to be a tough bad girl, her soft side came out when she discussed Marcheline.

“She was the most generous, loving woman,” Angelina said as she choked back tears. “She’s better than me.”

Aww! Would you say the same thing as Angelina about YOUR mothers, HollyMoms?
