After Angelina Jolie was awarded custody of the six children she shares with ex-husband Brad Pitt – Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne – sightings of Pitt and the children together ceased. But Pitt would continue to fight for joint custody of Jolie in court for years, according to Page Six, while reportedly exploiting his visiting rights behind closed doors. “[He] urges seeing them as often as possible, wherever they are in the world,” a source told Us Weekly of his relationship with the Brood. He also made an extra effort, according to the insider, to Shiloh Jolie-Pitt’s 16th experience.
There was a time when it wasn’t uncommon to see Pitt out and about with his eldest biological daughter. In 2013 he was photographed munching Japanese food with Shiloh and Zahara Jolie-Pitt in Madrid, and a year later he and Jolie were spotted cheering on the two girls at a soccer game.
In a 2014 interview with Radio Times, Jolie opened up about Pitt’s special bond with his daughters. “Brad thinks the girls can’t go wrong. He’s mush in her hands!” she revealed. He even let Shiloh get away with pranking him in a rare father-daughter moment that was caught on film.
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt has an excellent goal
Despite her famous name, extraordinarily wealthy parents, and jet-setting lifestyle, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt developed the personality of the average fun-loving, energetic kid. “Shiloh is hilarious, one of the goofiest and most playful people you will ever meet,” Angelina Jolie told Vanity Fair in 2010, directing and starring opposite Brad Pitt. The drama was filmed on a Mediterranean island off the coast of Malta, and Jolie told Vogue that she and Pitt considered the work trip their honeymoon. The couple also made the unconventional move of bringing their children with them.
When Shiloh joined her parents on the set of their movie one day, she entertained herself by playing with a slingshot. She was caught on video pranking her pops, who was sleeping at a table, when she decided to use him for target practice. Shiloh landed a direct hit, causing Pitt to wake up with a start and exclaim, “Damn!” Fortunately, by then he had plenty of experience using his children’s various other projectiles. “I’m insensitive to feces, snot, urine, vomit. you can’t get me You can’t break me,” he once explained on Oprah.
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt wanted to use a different weapon in a film
While appearing on “Oprah” in 2008, Brad Pitt revealed that Shiloh Jolie-Pitt went through a phase where she became so obsessed with “Peter Pan” that she only responded to the names of two characters from the popular children’s fairy tale, Peter and John. In Disney’s animated film based on the story, Wendy is trying to master the art of flying when some of the Lost Boys shoot her down with slingshots, so maybe that explains where Shiloh’s fondness for the gun came from.
When Angelina Jolie was commissioned to bring another Disney character to life, “Sleeping Beauty” villain Maleficent, she learned her adventurous daughter wanted to try her hand at mastering a different weapon. In a 2014 interview with The Hot Hits, Jolie revealed that she asked Shiloh to play a younger version of Princess Aurora in “Maleficent,” but her daughter had no desire to put on a dress at all. Instead, Shiloh offered to play a character of her own creation named Marcus. “I said, ‘Who is Marcus?'” Jolie recalled. “She said, ‘Marcus has horns and a bow and arrow.'” So there’s your storyline from Maleficent 3, Disney.
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt is quite the go-getter
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt has always been a bundle of energy, as evidenced by her hobbies. Surprisingly, none of them involve shooting – but they’re still pretty dangerous. When she was 5 years old, Shiloh became a big fan of going for four wheel rides with her father. “She doesn’t want to learn about the brakes. She just wants to walk!” Angelina Jolie told Marie Claire (via the Daily Mail). And speaking to E! On how Shiloh celebrated her 8th birthday in 2014, Jolie revealed: “She’s a skateboarder. We did graffiti classes and skateboarding.” The actress even had to turn down her daredevil daughter’s request to use a Hollywood Reporter photo shoot set as her personal skate park.
But while Shiloh once looked like she might be destined for the X Games, in a viral video of the teen dancing to Lizzo’s “About Damn Time,” “Step Up” star Jenna Dewan was jokingly tempted to cast her for the second season of reality series Come Dance With Me, per Elle UK. In 2022, an insider told Us Weekly that Shiloh had been taking dance classes for years and her father was seriously impressed with her skills. “I don’t know where she got it from,” Pitt told Entertainment Tonight. “I’m Mr. Two-Left-Feet here.” However, he missed a move on the Bullet Train premiere, so he and Shiloh would probably make a formidable team on Come Dance With Me.
