Hollywood star Angelina Jolie is in Vietnam with husband Brad Pitt for her first known visit since adopting an orphan from the country four years ago, local media reports said

Jolie and fellow film idol Brad Pitt landed in the southern metropolis of Ho Chi Minh City on Thursday night with their adopted son Pax Thien and five other children, VNExpress online newspaper reported, quoting an airport source.

The Oscar-winning American, who starred in the "Lara Croft" films, adopted the boy as a three-year-old from a Ho Chi Minh City orphanage in 2007.

She and Pitt have two other adopted children, from Cambodia and Ethiopia.

VNExpress said the family would travel to Con Dao, a holiday destination off Vietnam's southern coast.

The airport refused to comment to AFP and the orphanage could not be reached.

Pitt, Jolie and their six children were in Tokyo on Thursday, where Pitt held a news conference ahead of the Japan release of his new movie "Moneyball".
