LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Angelina Jolie, an advocate for adoption, was determined never to get pregnant until Brad Pitt came along and changed her mind, the actress said in a magazine interview.

The screen idols, dubbed Brangelina, welcomed the birth of their first biological child, daughter Shiloh, in 2006. Their twins, Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Leon, were born in July in France.

Jolie, 33, and Pitt, 44, have been together since 2005.

"I think one of the life-changing things that he did, one of many, is that I was absolutely never going to get pregnant," Jolie said of Pitt in an interview to appear in the November issue of W magazine.

"I never felt that it was the right thing to do. Now I wouldn't trade that experience for the world," Jolie said.

Jolie adopted son Maddox from Cambodia, and later daughter Zahara from Ethiopia, before having Shiloh with Pitt.

Before the birth of the twins, Pitt and Jolie adopted another boy, Pax, from Vietnam.

Jolie told W that Pitt's attitude toward her adopted children helped convince her to have biological children.   Continued...
