“I think she is fascinating, the choices she is making,” Angelina told Reuters when Shiloh was just four years old. As their daughter got older, the parents noticed Shiloh had a unique and particular sense of fashion.
“Shiloh, we feel has Montenegro style. It’s how people dress there,” the mom of six told Vanity Fair in June 2010. “She likes tracksuits, she likes [regular] suits. So it’s a suit with a tie and a jacket and slacks, or a tracksuit. She likes to dress like a boy. She wants to be a boy. So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers.”
Shiloh also liked to be called a different name when she’s around her family members. Brad revealed the moniker during a talk show appearance in 2008.
“She only wants to be called John. John or Peter. So it’s a Peter Pan thing,” he said. “So we’ve got to call her John. ‘Shi, do you want …’ — ‘John. I’m John.’ And then I’ll say, ‘John, would you like some orange juice?’ And she goes, ‘No!’ So, you know, it’s just that kind of stuff that’s cute to parents and it’s probably really obnoxious to other people.”
Even though the teen wasn’t a fan of her name, Angelina and Brad quickly embraced their daughter’s quirks. “I would never be the kind of parent to force somebody to be something they are not,” the Maleficent star told Reuters. “I think that is just bad parenting.”
Angelina and Brad continued to raise Shiloh together until they got divorced in 2016. After the pair parted ways, Shiloh saw her dad less and less. However, dealing with that traumatic time in her life made Angelina appreciate her daughter even more. “They have been through a lot. I learn from their strength,” the brunette beauty told Harper’s Bazaar in 2019 about her children. “We can’t prevent them from experiencing pain, heartache, physical pain, and loss. But we can teach them to live better through it.” Now, Shiloh is stronger than ever!
