Academy Award-winning actress Angelina Jolie has had a very busy five years. The gorgeous actress and partner, actor Brad Pitt are parents to six children – Maddox, Zahara, Shiloh, Pax, Knox and Vivienne – all under 8-years-old. On top of a busy family life and career, Jolie spends much of her time visiting countries that have been devastated by poverty and war, and her philanthropic efforts have earned her a role as a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador.
In a revealing interview with Vanity Fair, Jolie, whose latest flick Salt is set for release this summer, opens up about her big family, acting, and Brad Pitt.
On adding to her family: “No, I’m not pregnant. We’re not opposed to it. But we want to make sure we can give everybody special time. They’re kids now, and can play together, but they’re going to need a lot more talking in the middle of the night, like I did with my mom for hours. We want to make sure we don’t build a family so big that we don’t have absolutely enough time to raise them each really well.”
On her children’s personalities: “Mad’s a real intellectual, which I can take no credit for genetically. He’s great at school, great at history. He feels like he could be a writer or travel the world and learn about places and things. Zahara’s got an extraordinary voice and is just so elegant and well spoken. Shiloh’s hysterically funny, one of the goofiest, most playful people you’ll ever meet. Knox and Viv are classic boy and girl. She’s really female. And he’s really a little dude.”
On how Shiloh wants to be a boy: “[Shiloh dresses] like a little dude. Shiloh, we feel, has Montenegro style. It’s how people dress there. She likes tracksuits, she likes [regular] suits. She likes to dress like a boy. She wants to be a boy. So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers.”
