Shiloh Jolie-Pitt declined to star alongside her mom Angelina Jolie in the fantasy film Maleficent.
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt was supposed to appear with her mom Angelina Jolie in her hit movie Maleficent. However, she allegedly declined to do so.
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt snubbed Angelina Jolie’s movie
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s three kids Vivienne, Zahara, and Pax, appeared in small roles in Disney’s live-action, Maleficent, in 2014.
In an interview with Jolie, she joked that the number could have been four if Shiloh agreed. Pitt and Jolie’s eldest child was supposed to play the older Aurora, but they couldn’t get her to say “yes.”
“We joked about Shiloh being the older Aurora, and she thought it was the most ridiculous thing in the world. She would never even wear a dress. She would never, ever,” Jolie told The Hot Hits.
The actress added that Shiloh wanted to play another character in the movie that she wasn’t aware of.
“She wants to be somebody named Marcus. I said, ‘Do you…have any interest [in playing Aurora]? And she said, ‘No, I’ll be Marcus.’ And I said, ‘Who is Marcus?’ She said, ‘Marcus has horns and a bow and arrow.’ So, I don’t know who Marcus is, but in her mind, there’s a whole other character named Marcus.’”
Angelina doted over Shiloh
In an interview with Vanity Fair in 2010, Angelina Jolie spoke about her kids fondly, especially about Shiloh Jolie-Pitt. According to the Eternal star, Maddox is intelligent and a good writer. Zahara has an “extraordinary voice,” elegant and well-spoken.
Meanwhile, her eldest biological daughter, Shiloh, inherited dad Brad Pitt’s humor. Shiloh’s goofiness also reminded Jolie of her youth.
“Shiloh’s hysterically funny, one of the goofiest, most playful people you’ll ever meet,” Jolie said.
“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,” Jolie continued.
“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.”
Jolie blocking Brad Pitt’s effort to see Shiloh
There were rumors that Angelina Jolie blocked Brad Pitt’s effort to see Shiloh Jolie-Pitt in December 2019.
Brad and Shiloh communicate regularly and were planning to spend Christmas together. However, Jolie changed her mind and convinced Shiloh that it was inappropriate for them to be apart during the holidays.
However, one should take the report with a grain of salt. Pitt and Jolie had already agreed over their children’s custody two years ago. Pitt has been spending the holidays with the kids since 2018.
