Shiloh Jolie Pitt turns 18: Daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt has grown up

The resemblance to her famous parents is unmistakable: 18 years ago, on May 27, 2006, Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt was born in Swakopmund, Namibia. She is the first biological child of Hollywood stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, who chose the African birthplace to escape the enormous media hype. Nevertheless, Shiloh grew up in the spotlight and made style headlines as a young tomboy with short hair and cool suits.

Whenever she appears on the red carpets of the world, there is great interest. She herself was in front of the camera at the age of two, and in 2008 she played alongside her father in the Oscar-winning film “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”. But it is questionable whether Shiloh really wants to be in front of the camera: she is considered shy and is said to prefer being behind the camera. In 2016, she tried her hand at voice acting in the film “Kung Fu Panda 3”.

Angelina Jolie’s pregnancy had already caused a stir in 2006, and Brad Pitt had divorced audience favorite Jennifer Aniston just a year earlier. Jolie brought two adopted children into the marriage: Zahara and Maddox. Both were also adopted by Pitt. The media interest in Shiloh was so great that Brangelina – as the now ex-couple was known – decided to sell the image rights to the first baby photo exclusively worldwide and donate the proceeds to Unicef. The US magazine “People” alone is said to have paid four million dollars for it, and in Germany the magazine “Gala” acquired the image rights.

In 2016, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt separated and she was given sole custody. Since then, Shiloh has rarely appeared with her father. Rumour has it that she now wants to move in with him as an adult. In addition to Shiloh and the older children Maddox and Zahara, Pitt and Jolie also have biological twins Vivienne and Knox, as well as an adopted son Pax.

Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt owes her middle name to the French star architect Jean Nouvel. Architecture is one of her father’s great passions. However, she herself is more interested in dancing. “I don’t know where she got that from, I have two left feet,” she said of her dancing skills and admitted that her performances often moved him to tears.

But whether it’s through dance training or Hollywood genes, Shiloh always cuts a fine figure on the red carpet. Happy Birthday!
