Born with what’s perhaps the most famous double surname, the 17-year-old Shiloh–who with long hair looks like her 48-year-old mother–was recently spotted with a buzz cut that highlights the striking features she inherited from her gorgeous father, who’s 59.

Beyond the privilege of being born into Hollywood aristocracy, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt has done very little to collect the numbers as the second most googled celebrity kid. The first is Nico Parker– the daughter of Olive Parker who wrote the film Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again and actor Thandie Newton–who starred in the live action Disney film Dumbo.
Shiloh had a small voice role in Kung Fu Panda 3, a film her mother starred, and so far seems more interested in perfecting her impressive dance moves at Hollywood’s hottest studio, Millennium Dance Complex, than she is in following the footsteps of her famous parents.
Her adoring father has nothing but praise for his gorgeous daughter’s talents. “It brings a tear to the eye,” The Babylon star shared with Entertainment Tonight in 2022. Adding that she is “very beautiful,” Pitt also admitted he has no clue where she gets her mad moves from since he’s not smooth on his feet.
“I don’t know where she got it from,” he said. “I’m Mr. Two-Left-Feet here.”
Proud that his children are paving their own path, even if it means straying from screen roles, the Fight Club actor shared, “I love when they find their own way, find things they are interested in and flourish.”
Shiloh even turned down an offer to play a young Aurora, Jolie’s character in Maleficent.
“I asked Shiloh about being Aurora, and she laughed in my face,” Jolie told Elle magazine about her daughter snubbing the role in the 2014 film. “She said she’d be a horned creature.”
Shiloh is the fourth eldest in the Brad and Angelina brood of six, and their first biological child. Before Shiloh was born in 2006, her mother adopted a son, Maddox (22), from Cambodia, and a daughter, Zahara (18), from Ethiopia. In 2007, Pax Thien (19) was adopted as a three-year-old from Vietnam and the next year, the couple welcomed twins Knox and Vivienne (15). While married to Jolie, the Oceans 11 star adopted the other children and loved them as his own.
The Tomb Raider actor explained that the multicultural upbringing has had a profoundly positive influence on all of the children.
“They’re pretty great people and because there’s so many of them, I think they’ve had a very significant effect on each other. It’s not like I’m the head of anything. I’m very resolved not to treat any of her children differently I’m very honest with my kids. And I’m very human with my kids,” Jolie recently shared with People. “I have six very individual human beings in my home. I am so excited about all the different stages and feelings and curiosities that they go through. Why wouldn’t you be? We’re supposed to help them figure out who they are. And you can’t figure out who they are if you don’t enthusiastically develop with them.”
Jolie also revealed that initially she didn’t want a biological child until she saw how Pitt connected with the two eldest. She said: “I saw Brad with [Zahara] and Maddox, and I realized how much he loved them–and how a biological child would not in any way be a threat.”
And when Shiloh was born, she was an instant celebrity, her pictures selling for a reported $7.6 million in the US and the UK combined.
“Shi’s so full of light and love, she’s just a little honey, and very, very funny. I think I’m recognizing some of myself in that one–she’s going to be a little bit of trouble!” Jolie shared shortly after Shiloh was born.
But the Girl, Interrupted actor explained Shiloh’s resemblance to her father made her stand out from her adopted siblings, at least until fraternal twins Vivienne and Knox were born.
As per the Daily Mail, Jolie–the daughter of Ray Donavon star John Voight–said “She looks like Brad. It’s funny because she’s almost going to be the outcast in the family because she’s blonde and blue-eyed.”
Among the six children, Shiloh continues to be the main attraction.
According to the Mr. and Mrs. Smith actor, Shiloh thought she was “one of the brothers,” and the family supported her choices, from briefly changing her name to John, buzzing her hair and wearing tomboy suits, to glamorous gowns with long hair.
“Shiloh, we feel, has Montenegro style…” Jolie said. “She likes tracksuits, she likes (regular) suits. She likes to dress like a boy. She wants to be a boy. So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers.”
But the public isn’t sure what’s going on with Shiloh.
A video shared from the summer, shows Jolie, Pax, Zahara and Shiloh–who’s said to channel “Eleven from Stranger Things” with her newly shaved head”–exiting their car in New York.
Many cyber citizens buzzed over Shiloh’s dramatic hair. “She looks like her dad when her hair is that short. Cute kids!” And others seemed to think it wasn’t Shiloh. “That’s not Shiloh, it’s her younger brother Knox,” shares one netizen and another agrees, “I believe that was Knox, not Shiloh.”
Some online users took the opportunity to slam Jolie.
One writes, “Omg living with a crazy like Angelina I remember Britney [Spears] when she did this there is something seriously wrong. I feel for this young girl.” And a second shares, “I feel very sorry for her. The divorce has hurt her more than the other children. Angelina Jolie-don’t mess with your children’s head, as you have done with your own. Brad is a great dad.”
One went so far as suggesting Jolie is influencing Shiloh’s gender: “Angelina would be so proud if Shiloh turned into a transgender, poor girl.”
Most recently, Shiloh was again seen with her buzz cut, but this time it was dyed a soft pink.
Media reports the images show Shiloh catching up with a friend in Erewhon in Studio City, where they enjoyed a conversation outdoors.
Fans couldn’t help but comment on the striking resemblance between Shiloh and her famous parents.
“Identical to her father with her mother’s smile,” one user said, while another wrote, “mini Brad.” A third shares, “She’s such a mutt of both of them, just gorgeous!”
One isn’t impressed by her unconventional, ever-changing style and says, “Give it a few weeks/months. She’ll pop out saying her name is henry…This world is doomed.”
Pitt and Jolie officially divorced in 2019 and following a lengthy custody battle where the Gia actor wanted sole custody, Pitt was awarded joint custody in 2021.
The Once Upon A Time In Hollywood actor has since moved on and is now linked with Ines de Ramon, who notably filed for divorce from Vampire Diaries alum Paul Wesley in February.
What do you think about Shiloh Jolie-Pitt? The young woman is already so challenged by being the first child of the former Hollywood power couple, and we think public should leave her alone and let her be whoever she wants to be.
