Crazy. It’s been over a decade since Angelina Jolie, then married to Billy Bob Thorton, brought home little baby Maddox from Cambodia. And now the 12-year-old son of Jolie and partner Brad Pitt (who officially adopted Maddox as well in January 2006) is grown up enough to walk the red carpet with his famous parents at the Governor’s Awards in Hollywood this weekend, where Angelina was receiving a humanitarian award. Lookin’ cool, Maddox! But I must admit, this just makes me excited for the day my girl Shiloh is old enough to attend such a glam event. You know she’d rock the hell out of a tux too.
The universe always feels a little out of whack to me when the Jolie-Pitt kids are laying low. That’s why I get so excited when Brad or Angelina brings their brood out into the light so the rest of us can bask in their awesomeness, if just for a second, via paparazzi pictures posted on the internet. Yesterday, Angelina and the six little-ish ones flew out of Los Angeles for who knows where, probably one of their castles somewhere, and all seems to be well. Pax is still shy, Maddox is growing into a too-cool-for-school teen, Shiloh is still being Shiloh (dig the “Star Wars” shirt, Shi!), Zahara is as fierce as ever, and the twins are resembling their gorgeous mom more and more every day. And all is right with the universe again…
Maddox and Pax Jolie-Pitt are children of the world, so you know soccer is football to them. The eldest sons of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were snapped playing at a park in Burbank this weekend, a huge relief to me, as it had been a while since their spawn had been spotted out and about. But let’s be real … I need a Shiloh or Zahara photo opp ASAP. I miss those girls like whoa. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Jolie-Pitt rumors galore! An Angelina sex tape! A quickie wedding! But I know what you’re really wondering: what’s up with the kids? Ask and you shall receive. I have updates about your favorite brood. Usually Shiloh gets all the good headlines, but Knox may have stolen her thunder.
“Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s four-year-old son Knox Jolie-Pitt reportedly missed a boat trip during his family’s festive holiday in the Caribbean because he is scared of water and didn’t want to get out of the box he was in.” Keep reading »
“[Crickets are] their favorite thing. They ate them like Doritos, and they wouldn’t stop. I had to actually ban the cricket eating at a certain point because I was afraid they were going to get sick from eating too many.”
—Angelina Jolie explains that Pax and Maddox have more adventurous palates than most kids their age and absolutely love the taste of crickets. Well, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Last year, Angie said that she was into eating cockroaches. I wonder when the kids will graduate to bigger bugs? [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
Even though Angelina Jolie has a career, six kids and spends her time saving the world and stuff, she still managed to make Maddox’s birthday cake this year, using Sandra Lee’s recipe from Semi-Homemade Cooking, which apparently consisted of buying a white sheet cake, putting a round white cake on top, surrounding it by cupcakes, and then decorating the lot of it. Now I feel like a total jerk for buying a Baskin Robbin’s cake with my face on it for all my friend’s birthdays. Oh wait, no I don’t—those were totally delicious. [People]
Angie might have kept it down-to-earth for her son’s big day, but most stars tend to get a little more extravagant.
