We have all seen endless photos of the Jolie-Pitt children and heard stories about them from sources, nannies, and occasionally cast mates who’ve met the kids on set or at an event. It’s easy to feel like we know them, but we really have no idea. It’s rare that Brad or Angie actually opens up about them individually, but luckily Angie’s talking in the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair. Just who are these little people?
On Maddox: “ 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.”
On Zahara: “Zahara’s got an extraordinary voice and is just so elegant and well spoken.”
On Shiloh: “Shiloh’s hysterically funny, one of the goofiest, most playful people you’ll ever meet. Goofy and verbal, the early signs of a performer…. I used to get dressed up in costumes and jump around. But at some point, I got closed off, darker. I don’t remember anything happening. I think you just get hit with the realities of certain things in life, think too much, start to realize the world isn’t as you wished it would be, so you deepen. Then, as I had kids and got older—being goofy, lighter—it all came back.”
On Knox and Vivienne: “Knox and Viv are classic boy and girl. She’s really female. And he’s really a little dude.”
Sounds like one big happy family!
