Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s Daughter Has a Sophisticated New Hobby

This past summer, months before Angelina Jolie stunned the world by splitting from Brad Pitt, the Oscar-winning actress offered a rare update about the couple’s six children. Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox have spent their young lives in a rarified, creative cocoon—jetting around the world; passing time on many a film set; making movie cameos; and learning from teachers of different backgrounds and religions. So it did not surprise anyone that the children’s extracurriculars were as impressive as their C.V.’s.

“None of my kids want to be actors,” Jolie told an interviewer this June. “They are actually very interested in being musicians. I think they like the process of film from the outside. Mad is interested in editing. Pax loves music and deejaying.”

And now Shiloh seems to be honing another film-adjacent hobby these days: photography.

“Shiloh is very interested in photography,” an “insider” tells Us Weekly, before describing in suspicious detail how Jolie and her daughter stopped by an L.A. photography store on Sunday to inspect its merchandise.

“Angelina asked to look at some of the vintage camera,” the source continues. “Angelina inspected the cameras from many different angles and was asking questions. Shiloh was listening intently and paying close attention.”

The detailed report goes on: “Angelina told Shiloh she would love to get her the camera and asked her, ‘Are you satisfied?’ She told Shiloh it even had black and white, which was a nice added feature. Shiloh nodded her head but didn’t talk much. She really listened to Angelina and deferred to her on everything.”

Shiloh is not the first Pitt-Jolie member to develop a fondness for photography. In 2008, Jolie told W magazine about supporting Brad Pitt’s habit, telling the magazine that she bought him a Littman 45 Single camera for Christmas. The magazine published personal photos Pitt took of his family.

Jolie later said, “I love his photography. . .Some people have a hobby, and they find the quickest way to it and are very pleased with the outcome right away. But he’s someone who will really study the camera—he’ll get the most complicated one and really understand the science behind it. And he’s very critical of his own work. I’ll see a photograph and think it’s amazing, but he’ll see all the different reasons why it can be better, and he’ll work very, very hard to improve it.”

The Pitt-Jolie children have hobbies far beyond the camera though. This past summer, Jolie detailed her children’s additional interests, explaining, “All the kids are learning different languages. . .I asked them what languages they wanted to learn and Shi is learning Khmai, which is a Cambodian language, Pax is focusing on Vietnamese, Mad has taken to German and Russian, Z is speaking French, Vivienne really wanted to learn Arabic, and Knox is learning sign language.”

“I suppose that just means you don’t know who your children are until they show you who they are and they are just becoming whoever they want to be,” Jolie said.

Last summer, Jolie confirmed that she and her eldest son, Maddox, are making a movie for Netflix together.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie: Their Relationship in Photos


Where it all started: here we see Brad and Angie in Mr. and Mrs. Smith, which opened in June 2005. Most young adults have just a few faded pictures to inform what their parents were like when they were younger; the Brangelina kids will have a film which grossed hundreds of millions of dollars.


We all should have known things were going to last when Angelina was willing to date him in spite of this platinum ’do. Here they are in 2005 at the premiere of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, months before they publicly acknowledged their relationship.

At the premiere of Ocean’s 13, they are the actual, living embodiment of beauty.


Welcome to the world, Shiloh! A year after her much-discussed birth in Namibia, Shiloh joins her family on a visit to Chicago’s Field Museum, in August of 2007. Zahara, while probably squinting in the sun, is also on her way to perfecting the expert stink eye she’ll be beloved for.


In this picture, taken at the Critics Choice Awards in January of 2008, as well as in many others, it looks like they both know a secret about the nature of existence that no one else on earth will ever know or understand.

Who swaddled it best? Just kidding—obviously, they both did, because they’re both perfect. We’re frankly too overwhelmed to pick the cutest parts of these photos—the matching father-and-son hats? The identical, stunned facial expressions on the kids? Even Brad’s tiny, probably ill-advised mustache can’t put a damper on the charm here.


It is the rare, rare couple whose candid photos look like stills from movies. On their way to the premiere of Salt, Angelina has reverted to her red-carpet default—stunning, intimidatingly sharp black dresses—and Brad to his most Redford-ian hairstyle.


Here comes everybody! On their way to the Japanese premiere of Moneyball, Maddox and Pax look like expert tween travelers, Shiloh is keeping her distance from the scrum, Zahara takes on the big-sister guide role, and Vivenne and Knox seem well on their way to learning the paparazzi ropes. Who else is envying Vivienne’s boots right now?


Yes, Maddox is a full-on teenager now. We have not come to terms with it, either.


Here we see Brad and Angelina on their own, looking put-together and glowing, though this time with all six kids elsewhere on the red carpet.
