They have to juggle kids and career. Angelina Jolie: "The kids are really irritated that Mommy and Daddy have to keep going to things. When they say, 'What is it?' we say we're going to work, and when you try to explain [awards shows] as work it sounds like the most ridiculous job on the planet."
They contend with kid germs. Brad Pitt: "Our house is kind of like a petri dish; everyone has colds. One brings one home, the others get it."
Jennifer Lopez, mom of 4-year-old twins
Their kids have minds of their own. "One time my son said, 'Mommy, that dress is so ugly. Take it off!' So he does have an opinion. My daughter loves to be there when I'm getting ready. She's just a girl that way."
