The 42-year-old actress has done a lot of work with refugees as a special envoy to the U.N. High Commissioner, and she’s hoping to bring her children on her next mission to visit Rohingya Muslims that escaped from Myanmar. Understandably, Brad isn’t on board with his brood going to the dangerous region. “[Angie’s] asking to take at least two of the kids to Bangladesh,” a source told Life & Style exclusively. But, “Brad’s concerned for the children’s safety.”
Brad’s fears certainly aren’t unfounded. Bangladesh is the most densely populated country in the world, and suffers from rampant illness, extreme poverty, and terrible living conditions. It’s even hard to find clean drinking water. “Angie has assured Brad that the children will receive the proper vaccines and would have access to soap and hot water to wash their hands,” said the insider. “But he just isn’t comfortable with the kids going there.”
Brad doesn’t like the idea of his kids going into a “hot zone,” but he also has another concern: he doesn’t want the kids traveling when they should be learning. “This is a disruption of the children’s stable home lives,” the source explained. “Brad sees this as an attempt on Angie’s behalf to engage him in another round of drama.”

This certainly isn’t the first time Angie has taken the kids along on one of her international trips. Son Maddox was an executive producer on Angie’s new film First They Killed My Father, and Pax was the set photographer, which means they both traveled to Cambodia with their mom to shoot the film. Plus, all six kids attended the Toronto International Film Festival in September — when school should have been in session.
