London, (ANI): Hollywood's leading lady Angelina Jolie has been slammed by a notable psychologist for inviting her nine-year-old son, Maddox, on to the set of Salt and fooling him into believing that she was a man.
The 35-year-old actress recently said that after she had been made up as a man for a scene in the spy film, she brought her son on to the set.
"I invited him to come say 'hi' to me and I didn't tell him who it was," Jolie said. "So he came down, he shook my hand and he hung out with me for a while and then I said 'Mad?' and he went 'Aaaaagh! Muuum!' and he totally freaked out," she added.
However, Dorothy Rowe, the Australian psychologist, whose book 'Why We Lie' has just been published, doesn't seem to be happy about this.
"I think by the time a child reaches his age, he has a sense of himself and wants to appear to be in control," the Telegraph quoted Rowe as saying.
"In fooling her son in this way, she made a fool of him in public and this will make him feel betrayed, make him feel no longer in control, and break down the relationship of trust he has with his mother," Rowe added.
