Actress Jacqueline Bissett has opened up about her friendship with Hollywood star Angelina Jolie .
The Golden Globe winner was on Loose Women when she admitted she couldn't believe how the star juggles her busy life.
"Six children, a husband, a career, and directing I don't know how she does it. I don't know how any human being can do that.
"What I admire is that she carries a kind of quality of peace that just emanates from her."
The 71-year-old, who was close friends with Angelina's mother Marcheline Bertrand who passed away from breast cancer in 2007, said that although she is godparent to Angelina she "rarely" sees her because she doesn't want to bother her.
"Unfortunately I haven't developed a close relationship with Angelina, I see her rarely but I'm very admiring of her.
"What I find difficult is she's become so famous. So many people are pulling on her time, I'm a little bit shy and I don't want to be someone who tries to take advantage of her.
"Occasionally people say to me, 'Oh you know Angelina Jolie', and I say 'no she needs her space and she needs to do her number' but she's pretty remarkable."
Jacqueline stars in the recent film Miss You Already alongside Toni Colette and Drew Barrymore , who also appeared on the ITV chat show just last week.
There are some perks to having a major Hollywood star as a friend, as Jacqueline revealed she was all set to make a cameo in 2005 hit Mr and Mrs Smith but was left on the cutting room floor.
"I played a very small part in her film, Mr and Mrs Smith, I was supposed to be Brad Pitt's boss and Terry Stamp was her boss.
"But it didn't work out, they cut us, they didn't like two English people or something, and they put two African-Americans in and they didn't like them either and then it never ended up in the film.
"But I watched her on the set and she was so together, she was just joyful and friendly and amazing and I thought this woman's going to be a director."
