Angelina Jolie Speaks Out about Shiloh's Tomboy Look


Angelina Jolie defends daughter Shiloh‘s decision to chop off her locks and dress like a boy, saying “I think it’s beautiful.”

Us Weekly ran a photo of Shiloh Jolie-Pitt wearing ‘boy’ shorts.  The photo launched thousands of blog posts asking whether this was appropriate. 

Angelina explains to Stylist magazine that while she has no problem with the way Shiloh, 4, is expressing herself through her appearance, it’s not exactly her choice.

“It’s not my choice,” Angelina says. “I have a very strong willed four-year-old girl who tells me what she wants to wear and I let her be who she is.”    

“People look at kids and think they should wear certain types of clothes; I think children should wear what they want and express themselves, so we give them different options of things,” Angelina says.

“My other daughter Zahara (age 5) dresses very much like a girl, very pink and flowery, very feminine.”

Shiloh’s new locks has made the cutie resemble her dad, Brad Pitt.  Angelina explains how the hair cut scenario went down.

“Shiloh cried and said, ‘Please cut my hair off, I don’t want to have long hair.’  I’m not going to leave it long because somebody thinks I should. I want to do what’s in her head and what’s in her heart is to dress like that. I think it’s beautiful.”
