Cindy Crawford’s Road To Success
You have probably heard of the name Shiloh Jolie-Pitt. Her parents are some of the most famous faces in the world today, and if you cannot tell by her last name, she is one of the children of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Although, through the years, Shiloh’s fashion choices have been heavily criticized, and being the daughter of celebrities does not help that much either.
It is never easy to grow up in the spotlight, and this is a sentiment that most celebrity children face. So when Shiloh showed signs that she was maybe a bit different than other children or even her other siblings, the media and the public were quick to judge. However, as she is growing up, her incredible transformation is undoubtedly turning heads!
The world has been used to seeing Shiloh Jolie-Pitt in her usual boyish clothes and always with a smile on her face. However, a recent sighting caught her in a more unusual outfit, but breathtaking nonetheless. So before we show you what Shiloh looks like now, what do we know about her background and personal life?
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt was destined to be popular even before she was born, and before her birth, people had already been talking about her. She was (at the time) the third child of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, but she also was the most talked about one since she was the couple’s first biological child. Being the child of Brangelina seems like a dream, but is it really?
How awesome must it have been to say that your parents are none other than Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt? Having these famous faces be your parents must have been the dream, and to some extent, it was! However, to understand Shiloh’s life better, we must go back to the very beginning...
As we all know, the whirlwind romance that was Brangelina did not start quite easily since there had been a bit of complication to their blossoming relationship. The couple started dating around 2006, and it did receive a bit of negative commotion since Brad Pitt had just gotten separated from his ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston. So, how did Angelina and Brad go from there?
Angelina Jolie shut down the rumors that she had been the reason for the separation between Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. She said in an interview, “To be intimate with a married man when my own father cheated on my mother, is not something I could forgive. I could not look at myself in the morning if I did that. I wouldn't be attracted to a man who would cheat on his wife.”
Then in early 2006, Angelina Jolie stunned the world when she announced the news that she was carrying the child of Brad Pitt. During this time, Brangelina and their future family were the only things that the media focused on—they sold magazines, newspapers, and photos; it was insane!
Before she got pregnant, Angelina Jolie had already adopted two children, Maddox and Zahara. Brad Pitt had also adopted them in early 2006, so the Jolie-Pitt family was in full swing and awaiting another addition! Although, people were curious to know what the biological child of Angelina and Brad would look like.
During her pregnancy, many public polls were done by the media asking the general public what they thought Brangelina’s biological child would look like. We could imagine that this would have been a bit distressing to the pregnant Angelina, and it might have taken a toll on her well-being as well.
First of all, being pregnant is never easy—just ask your wives, your mothers, or sisters how hard it was when they were pregnant, and they will probably give you a pretty colorful answer. So imagine being pregnant while being constantly followed by the paparazzi and the world’s media. So it was a no-brainer that Brangelina would fly to a different country to give birth.
Before May 2006, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, alongside their children, flew to Namibia to give Shiloh a more ‘intimate’ welcome. They knew that giving birth in the United States of America would cause too much trouble, and people would want to take a lot of photos of them, so they opted to fly to Namibia.
Since both Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt had deep connections with philanthropy and charities, they thought of something quite unusual but beneficial to their charity of choice. Due to the intense want for Shiloh’s face to be seen, Brangelina sold Shiloh’s first photos and donated the money to UNICEF. How awesome was that?
As the years progressed, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s family kept on growing; they adopted Pax, and they gave birth to twins, Vivienne and Knox. It was as if everything was going according to plan and that no trouble was brewing in paradise. However, no matter how many children they had, all the attention was still centered around Shiloh.
It is true that Brangelina had other children, but the media was more interested in knowing what Shiloh was up to. After all, she was Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s first biological child. This intense media attention towards Shiloh also gave her an unnecessary ‘award.’
We all know what Madame Tussauds is; it is that place or museum where wax figures of celebrities are housed. Kind of creepy, to be entirely honest, and an even weirder fact was that Shiloh has a wax figure of herself as a baby at Madame Tussauds. They claim that Shiloh is the youngest person ever to have a wax figure created and housed at Madame Tussauds.
While she was growing up, another question that Shiloh often encountered was this: who does she look like? Quite a few people state that she looks like her father, Brad, but others say that she is a beautiful mix of her parents’ best features. Although, you can never really deny the fact that she is her father’s daughter.
According to Angelina Jolie herself, “Shiloh looks like Brad.” Finally, the parents have spoken about the true nature of Shiloh’s features, and we hope that Angelina was not sad that her daughter looks more like her father. Angelina also added, “It’s funny because she’s almost going to be [an] outcast in the family because she’s blonde and blue-eyed.”
As expected, Shiloh did grow up in the public eye, and it does not mean that the media would be nice towards her. Yes, she might be Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s child, but this does not guarantee that media outlets would let her go that easily. As Shiloh grew older, she showed signs of being different, and of course, the media criticized her for it.
While she was growing up, people noticed that she preferred many things quite differently for a girl her age. She liked wearing boyish outfits, and she always had her hair cut in a really short length. Naturally, the media would attack and criticize her for these ‘odd’ choices, but why did she choose to dress this way?
Shiloh chose to dress more like a boy and act more like a boy for some unknown reason. This was also not something that her parents often discuss publicly since they respect their children’s need for boundaries, so it is almost understandable why Brangelina never really cleared this up to the media. However, Angelina did say this...
Angelina Jolie said in an interview, “She likes tracksuits, [and] she likes regular suits.” It is safe to say that Shiloh will grow up to become an increasingly exciting individual, and this also means that the media attention towards her will only grow stronger as she grows up. However, her fashion choices did give her parents a bit of a backlash.
Due to Shiloh’s personal preferences, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt faced some backlash from the media. A lot of different magazines were constantly calling out the couple for turning their daughter into a boy, which was not the truth! Although, many of their fans were left with this question: are Brangelina failing as parents?
There are always two sides to the story, and the media would only ever show the side that they want the general public to see. So no matter how great both Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are as individuals and as parents, the deal they had with Shiloh’s upbringing was the only thing they constantly showed. Yes, it was unfair, and the tabloids kept on attacking.
Since both Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were relatively private people, the tabloids took this as a sign that they will never answer back to their tirades. So many magazines and newspapers constantly criticized the Jolie-Pitts, and how badly they were raising their children. However, what they did not expect was the answer that Angelina was prepared to give...
No mother would ever want to see her children nor her family be bullied, so when the media pushed their luck too far, Angelina Jolie had to draw the line. This was Angelina like we have never seen her before, and it was as if she changed her perspective after being a mother. So what did she say to Vanity Fair?
Angelina Jolie said:
“Mad’s a real intellectual, which I can take no credit for genetically. 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.”
Although, it was this one comment that made people gasp in disbelief, “[Shiloh] wants to be a boy, so we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything.” This was a comment that made people all around the world lose their minds. However, Angelina added more things when she talked about her daughter, Shiloh...
Like any other parent, Angelina Jolie loves talking about her children, and her face instantly lights up when she is talking about their specific characters. She said about Shiloh, “[She’s] goofy and verbal, the early signs of a performer.” Although, how are Brangelina doing when it comes to successful parenting?
It is not a secret that Brangelina’s approach to parenting is somewhat unconventional, but this does not make them bad parents. Most parents take their children on trips, which Brangelina also does with their children. So in a way, they are just like any other parents—although, what did they say when Shiloh had this unusual request?
When our children ask us for something, we usually tend to think it through whether this will benefit them greatly or lead to their downfall. So when Shiloh requested her family to call her ‘John,’ Angelina Jolie had the perfect answer. She said, “As parents, we encourage our kids to embrace all that they are, and all that they know in their hearts to be right.”
As we have previously mentioned before, there are always two sides to every story, and the media will never show the side that they never want you to see. The media never shows the true familial side of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and how they take care of their family so extraordinarily. Although, trouble was somewhat brewing beneath the surface for this ‘it couple.’
Years have passed, and it was as if everything was perfect in the Jolie-Pitt household. However, both Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt shocked the world when they both announced that they were officially splitting. This was such an unexpected announcement, and people did wonder whether they tried to make it work again...
Before Brangelina announced that they were officially splitting, they also confirmed that they did try to make it work, especially for the sake of all of their children. However, things did not look great, and staying together was somewhat more destructive than staying apart. So in 2016, Brangelina was no more.
It must have been hard for both Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt to separate, especially since they have six children together. Being one of the world’s most popular coupe also did not make this separation easier since all of their movements were scrutinized by the media and by the public.
After spending years and years together, Brangelina proved that not all couples were meant to last, and some things just do not work out no matter how hard you try. It has now been a few years since Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt split up. So what does this mean for their children?
Naturally, the Jolie-Pitt children would have found it hard after knowing that their parents would soon separate. However, like most children of broken homes, they must have found a way to co-exist and to grow together as a family even though their parents do not live together anymore. Plus, a source shared this remarkable testament...
A close source of the family shared this thought on Entertainment Tonight:
“To the surprise of many of their closest friends, their communication has improved tremendously, and they're both dedicated to co-parenting. Their kids have a custody schedule, and that's made a huge difference for the whole family. The schedule has alleviated any of the planning pressures Brad and Angelina have faced in the past. Now the kids spend time with both their parents and are happy and thriving.”
Growing up is never easy, especially if you are going through puberty and your teenage years. So imagine the lives of the Jolie-Pitt children after being shown in the media every single time they go out as a family. Although, one appearance by Shiloh made a massive impact on the media, and it left the public wanting to see more of her.
The public was used to seeing the boyish image of Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, but one day out with her family showed a different side to this teenager. She was no longer sporting her usual boyish clothes and sneakers; instead, a new Shiloh was somewhat debuted to the world. You will never believe how she transformed!
In early January 2021, Shiloh was seen in town with her older sister, Zahara, and their mother, Angelina. They were doing things that seemed pretty normal to most mothers and daughters, but the thing that caught the world’s attention was how Shiloh carried and presented herself. She did not seem like the boyish child that she used to be...
During this particular event, Shiloh was seen wearing a black hoodie and denim cut-off shorts, and she was also sporting the ubiquitous facemask due to the current situation that the whole world is facing right now. She also seemed a lot taller, but that was no surprise since children grow taller once they grow older. Although, the question on everybody’s mind is this: what made Shiloh Jolie-Pitt change?
There had been many speculations when it comes to Shiloh’s new appearance, but until her parents have made a statement about it, we really cannot believe everything that we hear. Although, this new look does work for her, and we cannot wait to see what kind of clothing Shiloh will wear in the future. Now, what do her parents think about this change?
As we have previously mentioned, both Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have not yet commented about Shiloh’s new look. However, we are pretty sure that they are both in full support of their daughter, just like how they usually are.
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt’s life might have looked so dreamy and luxurious to some people. However, famous parents come with the added weight that you will get scrutinized at every point of your life and by doing every single thing that the media finds weird or odd. So the way Shiloh rose through the challenges is pretty commendable, and we cannot wait to see what she does next.
Children are amazing, and sometimes we just have to let them flourish by themselves. What do you think about Shiloh Jolie-Pitt’s transformation? Let us know by leaving a comment below, and share this article with your family and friends!
