Meet Angelina Jolie's Bulldog, Jacques

Angelina Jolie and Dog Jacques on 60 Minutes
Angelina Jolie has one kid she doesn't mind putting in the spotlight: her English bulldog, Jacques.

During an interview with 60 Minutes, Jolie let the cameras have a glimpse of her life in Budapest, Hungary, where she and her family were staying while partner Brad Pitt filmed a movie. That glimpse included a few moments with Jacques.

"At the house Angelina's renting in Budapest, we weren't allowed to film her children, unless you call Jacques one of her kids," said CBS's Bob Simon. "He seemed to love the camera almost as much as the camera loves Angelina."

Jolie playfully scratched Jacques's back before the hammy pooch turned to a cameraman and his lens.

"He likes you!" Jolie said.

The Oscar winner, who is gearing up for the release of her screenwriting and directing debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, told Simon she enjoys being home with her children more than making movies, but she's glad she took the leap and stepped behind the camera.

"I think what's risky is living your life and never trying for anything," she said. "Never doing something brave and never getting yourself scared."
