Angelina Jolie: Leave Shiloh Alone!

/ December 7, 2010

There’s been much ado about Shiloh Jolie-Pitt’s boyish style of dress, but her mom Angelina Jolie is urging critics of her daughters’ mini trousers and blazers to back off her 4-year-old daughter.

“I don’t think it’s for the world to interpret anything,” Jolie said in an interview with the London Daily Mail’s You magazine. “She likes to dress like a boy and wants her hair cut like a boy and she wanted to be called ‘John’ for a while. Some kids wear capes and want to be Superman and she wants to be like her brothers. It’s who she is.”

Though she acknowledges that the doll-faced Shiloh “does love a tie,” Angie says “my mother made me feel very loved and sent me out into my life to be whatever I needed to be and to express whatever I needed to be…hopefully I’m giving my children the sense that they are deeply loved and deeply safe.”

Though Angie supports her daughter’s decision to sport adrogynous duds, she herself continues to step out in sleek, feminine vestery.
