Angelina Jolie has lashed out at paparazzi who turned her new adopted son's first encounter with celebrity into a terrifying experience. The actress and her adopted Cambodian son Maddox were leaving an orphanage outside Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam the other day with the latest addition to their family when photographers swarmed their vehicle. And Jolie, who was sickened by the extent the snappers went to get a shot of her adopted son Pax Thien, is speaking out through her international advisor Trevor Neilson. In a statement released late yesterday, he says, "As Angelina left the orphanage they (photographers) opened the door of her car, banged on the doors and threw things under the wheels to try to get them to stop. "How would the paparazzi feel if someone was doing this to a car their child was riding in?" The chaos in the car ride away from the orphanage, from which 3-year-old Pax Thien was collected by his new mom and brother, was a stark contrast to the peace in the institute, where Jolie thanked those who have been caring for her new son. The actress signed a guest book, writing, "Thank you for taking such wonderful care of my son." Jolie is now heading to Vietnamese capital Hanoi to finalize the adoption. Also, Jolie is taking a long break from her film career to focus on caring for her four children. Jolie and Pitt are now full-time parents to four children under the age of five: Cambodian Maddox, 5; Ethiopian Zahara Marley, 2; and their sole biological child Shiloh Nouvel, 10 months. Currently in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, where she formally adopted Pax yesterday, Jolie told local newspaper Ho Chi Minh City Law she was happy to be a full-time mother. She says, "Now, I will stop making movies and will stay home to help Pax to get used to his new life. "I have four children and taking care of the children is the most important thing for me at the moment. I am very proud and happy to be their mother." Despite her plans for time out, Jolie recently signed on to play railroad executive Dagny Taggart in the big-screen version of Ayn Rand's novel "Atlas Shrugged."
