Angelina Jolie about her daughter’s gender-neutral approach

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have 6 children together: 3 adopted and 3 biological. A few years ago, the celebrity parents shocked multiple fans when announced that their little daughter Shiloh wanted to transit to a boy.

Angelina Jolie supports her daughter’s gender-neutral approach and even allows Shiloh to dress up as a boy. The actress explains that if her daughter feels comfortable in male clothes, then she is totally Ok with it.

Gender transition

It appeared that Shiloh’s gender obsession started a long time ago. When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s daughter was just 2 years old, she asked her parents to address her by a male name. Shiloh even picked up two options by what name she wanted to be called.

In a throwback interview with Oprah Winfrey, Brad Pitt commented on this matter:

She only wants to be called John. John or Peter.

The actor added:

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!’

A source close to the actor said:

It has nothing to do with Brad not wanting to see them… In a short span of time, Brad went from seeing his kids every day to going long periods without them, and it absolutely kills him.
