(askmen.com) - Angelina Jolie insists Madonna knew she would run into trouble by adopting a baby from Malawi - because of the country's uncertain adoption laws.
'The Good Shepherd' actress - who has two adopted children, five-year-old Maddox and Zahara, 23 months - says Madonna was open to criticism and problems because Malawi has no set guidelines for adoption.
She is quoted by Britain's New magazine as saying: "Madonna knows very well that she adopted from a country without legal adoption, so it was an unusual situation."
Angelina - who also has a seven-month-old biological daughter Shiloh Nouvel with partner Brad Pitt - insists she will not make the same mistake as Madonna the next time she gives a home to an unwanted child.
She said: "I don't anticipate that being a problem for me because I don't intend to adopt a child from a country where there is no legal adoption."
