Angelina Jolie Might Quit Acting For Her Kids
Actress/humanitarian Angelina Jolie is notoriously private about her personal life so when she decides to open up the whole world tends to listen.
Angelina recently sat down with Vanity Fair to talk about her family life, relationship with Brad Pitt and the possibility of her (gasp!) retiring from acting. However, the most revealing part of her interview is when she discusses how her daughter Shiloh is going through a bit of gender confusion:
[Shiloh dresses] like a little dude. Shiloh, we feel, has Montenegro style. It’s how people dress there. She likes tracksuits, she likes (regular) suits. 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.
Aw, well we all went through little dressing phases when we were growing up. However, considering that Shiloh has genes from two of the most beautiful people in the world, she is probably going to grow up to be quite stunning. As it turns out, lil’ Shiloh is already taking after her mommy:
[Shiloh is] goofy and verbal, the early signs of a performer…. I used to get dressed up in costumes and jump around. But at some point, I got closed off, darker. I don’t remember anything happening. I think you just get hit with the realities of certain things in life, think too much, start to realize the world isn’t as you wished it would be, so you deepen. Then, as I had kids and got older—being goofy, lighter—it all came back.
Meanwhile, Angelina says that Brad is a “traditional male” and is “such an artist” and that while they aren’t against getting married they already feel like they have a “bigger commitment” to each other because of their ever-expanding brood of kids.
With her family getting bigger and bigger, Angie is considering taking a break from acting:
It’s not the most important thing in my life. Acting helped me as I was growing up. It helped me learn about myself, helped me travel, helped me understand life, express myself, all those wonderful things. So I’m very, very grateful, it’s a fun job. It’s a luxury. Look, I’m at work today in the middle of Venice. But I don’t think I’ll do it much longer.
Yikes! Don’t leave acting, Angie!
