Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were very “proud” of themselves after cooking their family Thanksgiving dinner.

The Hollywood couple – who raise six children, Maddox, 10, Pax, eight, Zahara, six, Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, together – says they decided not to hire any help for last month’s holiday and wanted to do everything themselves, including cooking the turkey.

She told TV interviewer Anderson Cooper: “Brad and I decided we were actually going to make the turkey and we were very successful and very proud of ourselves.

“This was just the two of us with the kids watching trying to pretend we knew exactly what we were doing.”

Angelina says eating as a family is important to her and they try to do it as often as possible.

She said: “We actually have family dinner every night,” Jolie explained. “We make a point of it. It’s crazy. There’s a good five minutes were everybody is quiet and sitting together and then it starts to break off.”

Angelina also revealed how all the children love to travel around the world and are comfortable wherever they go.

She said: “Fortunately, my kids love to travel. they’re very worldly. What I love is that they can be in New York in a hotel in Manhattan and think it’s so cool, and then I can bring them to the middle of Kenya and drop them in a tent with no TV and no nothing, and they’re just as happy.

“That’s what we are trying to do to balance them.”

By Andrea Petrou on March 11th, 2011

Sarah Harding loves cooking for her fiance.

The Girls Aloud star and her partner Tom Crane moved out of London and into a house in the English countryside in 2009, and s she loves to spend her time creating culinary treats in the kitchen.

She said: “I like my food too much to be that thin. I try to keep in shape but me and Tommy love cooking. Now we’re out of London I do a lot more home cooking. Spaghetti Bolognese is my speciality. I love pasta and bread – all the wrong things unfortunately.”

However, Sarah spends many evenings eating alone because Tom’s DJ career means he works nights, but the 29-year-old singer-and-actress still cooks enough for two and always finishes off the lot.

She added to Look magazine: “I try to balance out what I eat but I don’t see Tommy a lot of the time in the evenings because he’s working so I end up cooking enough for two people, then eating it all. I can’t leave it or throw it away.”
