Angelina Jolie did a press conference in Cancun, Mexico, when she posed for photos that we still don’t have access to. Thankfully, Us Weekly was on the ball and sent someone down there to actually, you know, record what Angelina said at the press conference. It sounds pretty cute – she got some questions about her kids, and she finally told a story about Pax, The Forgotten Jolie-Pitt (aka “Call Me Fred”). Pax/Fred got upset when he saw the trailer for Salt, because he thought someone was actually beating up his mom. But, Angelina says, most of the other kids don’t really give a sh-t that she’s an actress. Shiloh is giving her mom style tips though – Shiloh wants Angelina to get a short little pixie cut too!
Like daughter, like mother? When Shiloh Jolie-Pitt saw her mom Angelina Jolie in the trailer for Salt, the tot with the pixie-cut had some pointers.
“Shiloh wanted me to get my hair cut short,” Jolie told reporters Wednesday at a press conference in Cancun, Mexico for the action flick.
Jolie, 35, is in Mexico for film promotional duties with her four eldest: Maddox, 8, Pax, 6, Zahara, 5, and Shiloh, 4. The tykes saw the film’s trailer for the first time in their hotel, Jolie explained.
“Half of them were uninterested,” the actress said. Her second eldest was concerned when he saw Jolie get roughed up in one shot. “Pax got upset because someone was trying to hurt his mom. He saw [my] feet wrapped and he got mad. But then I explained to him that I’m fine.”
She added: “They’re very confused, to be honest. I think they don’t quite know what to think. Even the change of hair color is confusing for them,” she said of her blonde locks in the flick. Where were the kids during her meet and greet with the press? “They’re in the pool,” Jolie explained.
The star also dished on love Brad Pitt, who stayed behind in L.A. with twins Vivienne and Knox, nearly 2. Pitt, 46, was “very supportive” of her taking on the role after taking a year off to have the twins.
“We met doing this style of film,” she noted, referring to the 2005 action flick Mr. and Mrs. Smith. “He knows that in some way the action of it is fun for me. We have fun together doing kind of physical things, whether it’s my training for this or motorcycle practice … it was fun.”
“I was sitting in my nightgown in bed feeling very very girly and very soft,” she recalled. “I sat with [the script] on the bed…I said I think I found something that will help me get kind of fired up again and physical again.”
“Anything I was ready to do he was going to jump behind. But he was happy for me.”

Some famous actress… I forget who now, maybe it was Meryl Streep or Julianne Moore, someone like that, said that her kids thought “Mommy works in a trailer” because whenever the kids came to visit her at work, she was in the trailer, getting her hair and makeup done, waiting to go on set. It must be really strange having a major actor or actress as a parent. I know that’s a “no sh-t, Sherlock” statement, but really, just think of the mechanics of it alone. Another one of my favorite stories of a kid who grew up around a famous parent was Sofia Coppola’s story about always being on her dad’s sets, and hanging out with the makeup and costume department, and giving makeovers to her dolls. So maybe it’s not all “Don’t watch Mommy get tortured by this man, okay?”
