Angelina needed 25 staff in France

ANGELINA Jolie needs more than 25 staff to run her household, it has been claimed.

The Salt actress - who raises six children with partner Brad Pitt - reportedly needed a huge entourage to help out at Chateau Miraval, the French property she rented in 2008, including medical professionals, security guards and nannies.

Author Andrew Morton writes in his new book Angelina: An Unauthorised Biography: "The house was filled with nannies from Vietnam, the Congo, and the US; four nurses, a doctor on permanent call; two personal assistants; a cook; a maid; two cleaners; a busboy; four bodyguards, and six French former army guards patrolling the grounds."

Although the writer alleges Angelina barely saw her mother Marcheline Bertrand in her very early years, he believes the brunette beauty developed most of her parenting techniques from the way she was brought up.

He explains: "Marcheline separated herself from that child (Angelina) because she looked a lot like her husband Jon Voight.

"Angie based her child-rearing methods on what she could remember - or what she told herself - about her mother's skills.

"Like Marcheline, when the children behaved themselves, she gave them sticker stars that they could later exchange for treats."

Angelina's mother and father, actor Jon Voight, split up in 1976 and the actress and her brother were then raised by Marcheline.
