Angelina Jolie

has revealed that she's closer to her adopted son Maddox than her own genetic children.

"You'd think you'd be more similar to the children you have a genetic link with, but I'm not. Maybe one of them, but then I'm very similar to Maddox. So it doesn't have an impact that some are ­genetically connected," she says.

Three of Jolie's children are adopted. "We're hoping the kids don't become actors. We want them to do what they're interested in, but we're ­showing them so many other ideas they won't want to act... I think children are exactly who they are when they're born. And if there is a trauma, it can drastically change who they are," says Jolie, 38, who is engaged to actor Brad Pitt. "If you look at baby photos of our kids, the way they looked, what their energy was - they're still the same," she adds.
