Jolie, being interviewed at the Cannes film festival alongside comic actor Jack Black for the syndicated entertainment program “Access Hollywood,” acknowledged that she was having twins after Black made reference to them.

“Yeah, yeah, we’ve confirmed that already,” Jolie, 32, said, according to a transcript provided by the show. “Well, Jack’s just confirmed it actually.”

Excerpts of the interview, conducted by a reporter for NBC’s “Today” show to promote the animated film “Kung Fu Panda,” featuring characters voiced by Jolie and Black, was set to air on “Access Hollywood” on Wednesday night.

The full interview will air on Thursday on “Today.”

Jolie and Pitt, 44, together have adopted 3-year-old daughter Zahara, 6-year-old son Maddox and 4-year-old son Pax. They also have a biological daughter, 22-month-old Shiloh.

Jolie won an Academy Award as best supporting actress for her role in the 1999 film “Girl, Interrupted.”
