Angelina Jolie doesn't enjoy parent-teacher conferences: 'I have a problem with schools'

Eternals costars Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek joined E!'s Daily Pop, where they were asked about their approach to parenting—specifically, attending parent-teacher conferences as two of the biggest stars in Hollywood.

"For us, it's normal, but sometimes, the other people react strange," Hayek, 55, said.

"There's certainly moments where kids want to be regular kids, and they just don't want that aspect of their life always there," Jolie added, speaking of times when her children have actually asked her not to attend school functions as to not bring extra attention. "I think part of it is more, 'I love you, Mom, but...'"

"'Stay away,'" Hayek interjected, finishing Jolie's thought. "I get nervous because I don't want to do too much, but I don't want to do nothing either."

Jolie concluded: "I have a problem with schools because I was always in trouble in school. I have PTSD. So ... you have to talk like you're the parent now in the parent-teacher conferences, and you're scared the teacher is going to say something."

Earlier this week, Jolie brought five of her six children with her to the premiere of Eternals in Los Angeles:

The Oscar-winning actress shares 20-year-old Maddox, 17-year-old Pax, 16-year-old Zahara, 15-year-old Shiloh as well as 13-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox with her ex-husband, Brad Pitt, whom she divorced in 2016.

Hayek shares 14-year-old Valentina with her husband, François-Henri Pinault. Valentina also attended the Eternals premiere.

Marvel Studios' Eternals hits theaters Nov. 5. Watch the trailer below.
