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.

Cover lines asserting that “Sandra Bullock Takes Jesse Back!” or “Jessica Simpson Is Getting Cold Feet!” often pertain to a story that says something far less OMG, like that Sandra and Jesse supposedly had a pleasant phone conversation or Jessica was spotted looking “sad” one day. But generally, when it comes to children — specifically the children of celebrities — tabloid magazines play it safe, focusing on photos of the tots looking adorable or incredibly wordy stories about their extravagant birthday parties. But not Star! This week’s issue of the magazine features a cover story alleging that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s twins, Vivienne and Knox, have Down Syndrome. A story like this doesn’t just toe the line of inappropriate, it crosses it, loops back around, and crosses it again. Keep reading »
Seen so rarely that we sometimes think they might have been just a figment of our imagination, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s twins, Knox and Vivienne, were photographed with their parents in Amman, Jordan this weekend. [Twitter via DListed] Keep reading »
