The 18-year-old now attends Yonsei University in South Korea where he will be studying biochemistry.

Angelina Jolie accompanied her son to campus and she was emotional when she had to say goodbye to him:

I leave today, I’m trying not to cry.

We don't know if mom is feeling less teary-eyed now about her son going off to college, but Maddox himself just gave an update on how he's doing in a rare interview.

In a video obtained by In Touch Weekly, Maddox said that he believed his siblings were happy about his college journey.

When asked if dad Brad Pitt may come visit him at school, the teen replied:

I don’t know about that [or] what’s happening.

He was, however, a bit cryptic in his response when the reporter asked him if things are still strained between him and his dad.

Well, whatever happens, happens.

We can understand why Maddox is hesitant to reveal too much about the goings-on in his family but his feedback does give the impression that things still aren't great between him and his movie-star father.

Fans have since congratulated the young man on his college journey.

It's quite nice to see Maddox growing up to be such a polite and respectful young man.
