Angelina Jolie let her kids play with fake blood on the set of her new movie Salt.

The Hollywood actress steps into the role of a secret agent in the action thriller, and the film’s daring stunts meant the film crew kept large supplies of red liquid on location to simulate injuries.

And Jolie admits when her young children, with partner Brad Pitt, visited the movie set they loved getting messy in all the fake blood.

Speaking at the London premiere of Salt, she says, “I would bring them in early in the mornings… and I’d let them (play with the) blood. So we play together, they try on my wigs, they play with the blood… They know it’s all silly! They test the harnesses and we have them flying around. They know what it is.”
