Angelina Jolie wants permanent move to UK

Angelina Jolie wants to move to England permanently.

The 'Maleficent' star and her husband Brad Pitt - who have Maddox, 14, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, nine, and seven-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox together - are currently renting a house in Surrey near London for $21,000 a month but ideally want to move there for good.

A source told Us Weekly magazine: "The house is big, kid-friendly and has all the modern conveniences. They like that there are toy shops in town and that it's not far from central London. It's got that peaceful, leafy suburb vibe as well. They love being in London. Angie would pick it as their permanent home if she could."

The couple are also not too far away from their close friends, George and Amal Clooney, and are already planning to take a boat trip down the River Thames to their house in the summer.

Meanwhile, it is likely their children's friends will soon be joining them in the United Kingdom for a holiday after Brad previously revealed the couple fly their kids' pals to wherever they are in the world so they can experience more of a "normal" life.

He explained: "Our life is their normal. Because we're migratory workers in a sense they have this wonderful thing where they get to be students of the world.

"They have memories of being in Vietnam, or that time in Paris, or over in Calgary. The downside is friends, sleepovers, team sports - these have been the challenges that we've had to work out. We do those things but we really have to go out of our way. And mom is a matador about it all - she's fantastic. We get their friends to us a lot.

"And then when we set up in one place for any length of time I get on the team sports, because I really want them to have that understanding of being on the team."
