Los Angeles: Hollywood star Angelina Jolie has praised her "wonderful" partner Brad Pitt saying she is grateful to have had his support while filming her directorial debut 'In the Land of Blood and Honey'.

The 36-year-old Oscar-winning actress raises six children, Maddox, 10, Pax, right, Zahara, six, Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, with the Hollywood actor and they take turns in taking care of them, reported a magazine.

"I have a wonderful partner in Brad and we take turns working always. So I was with the kids when he shot 'Moneyball', and when he finished he took a few months off while I was shooting this.

"It was helpful (to have them there), but the kids had to be kept away from most of the set. So they would be outside playing with the fake snow and I would be inside working on something else," she said.

Jolie also said that she couldn't have worked on the project without her support system in place.

"It means everything. I couldn't be standing here without them," she said.
