Angelina Jolie Takes Pax Back to Vietnam

No, she wasn't returning him. She just wanted him to visit his Vietnamese roots.

Angelina Jolie thinks it's important to keep her three adopted kiddos familiar with their roots, so she recently took her seven year-old son, Pax, to Vietnam.

"We owe Vietnam a visit," Jolie told the Financial Times. She added that all of her kids know about each other's background.

"They are all learning about each other's cultures as well as being proud of their own. They all have their flags over their beds and their individual pride."

What about U.S. born kids? What do you teach someone about American culture? I'm guessing just turn the TV on and let them watch the Real Housewives for hours on end. Welcome to the greatest country on Earth!

Angelina and Pax were photographed in his home country, and according to the photographer, the two went out for lunch in Ho Chi Minh City, and the rest of the clan has accompanied the two.

Just to recap, Jolie's eldest son, Maddox is from Cambodia, Zahara, 6, is from Ethiopia, Shiloh was born in Namibia while twins Vivienne and Knox were born in France.

Jolie arrived in Vietnam after visiting Japan while Brad Pitt promoted Moneyball over there. Man, I wonder what the Japanese translation of "moneyball" is. Lets Super Happy Sports Dollar!

And Angelina stunned on the red carpet in Tokyo on Wednesday. She wore a form fitting red cocktail dress and nude heels. Only days before, the Jolie-Pitt clan was in Budapest, where Brad promoted a totally different movie: World War Z. World War Z is a zombie apocalypse thriller.

But not everything's going rosy for these two. The couple is being sued by their former secretary, Ana Charlotiaux. Charlotiaux worked at Brad and Angelina's Chateau Miraval estate in Southern France, but she claims she was fired by Brangelina for taking too many sick days. Probably got "sick" of their cutesy couple shtick. Anyway, she's now seeking compensation from the couple.

Charlotiaux's lawyer, Emmanuel Ludot, had this to say:

"Mr Brad Pitt, who is also famous for his charity work and adoption of children, should understand that my client should be compensated as soon as possible. We hope they will both be faithful to their reputation for humanitarian causes."

So because someone gives money to charity, they're supposed to put up with someone not coming in to work? No, according to Ludot, it's also because they're rich:

"This money is a drop in the ocean for these stars. She has nothing against them personally, and says she was always treated well by them, but they did not step in to prevent her being dismissed."
