Two Hollywood mothers appear to be bucking the trend for hiring help.
Rather than pack the children off with a nanny, actresses Angelina Jolie, 34, and Courteney Cox, 45, simply took them into work.
Angelina was seen with son Pax, six, as she was filming controversial new thriller movie The Tourist in Paris.
While Courteney, 45, currently enjoying success in TV show Cougar Town, brought daughter Coco, five, to her office for the day.
It was like a Hollywood version of ‘The Take Our Daughters To Work’ programme founded by feminist activist Gloria Steinem to address self-esteem issues unique to girls.
