New York: Actress Angelina Jolie says her children don`t find her cool all the time.

"They know when mommy`s funny and when mommy`s not funny. They`ll sit in a room and say, `That`s just not funny,`" Jolie told USA Today.

The actress also says that her kids, Maddox, 9, Pax, 7, Zahara, 6, Shiloh, 4, and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne have become "part agents, part managers" for her, reports people.com.

Jolie`s children proved their understanding of the industry on the set of "Kung Fu Panda 2", releasing May 26.

Their opinions keep her "competitive," she added, even if they would rather hang with her co-star Jack Black.

"I tell them, `I know you like (panda) Po,` " she said. "`But come on - mom`s cool too, right?` "
