Well, that took about two seconds. Just a few hours ago, Vanity Fair released some excerpts from Angelina Jolie’s cover profile (we just covered it here). Angelina was talking about her kids, and she had some sweet things to say. However, the excerpts provided online we’re even the tip of the iceberg, I guess. Because Us Weekly got their hands on an advance copy of the interview, and Angelina talks more extensively about Shiloh and how Shi “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.” Judge away.
In August’s Vanity Fair, Angelina Jolie opens up about her six children and relationship with beau Brad Pitt.
The Salt star, 35, admits she dresses Shiloh, 4, “like a little dude. Shiloh, we feel, has Montenegro style. It’s how people dress there. 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 Jolie says she isn’t worried: She was just like Shiloh as a kid.
“Shiloh’s hysterically funny, one of the goofiest, most playful people you’ll ever meet,” she says. “….Goofy and verbal, the early signs of a performer. I used to get dressed up in costumes and jump around.”
Maddox, 8, is “a real intellectual, which I can take no credit for genetically. He’s great at school, great at history. He feels like he could be a writer or travel the world and learn about places and things.”
Five-year-old Zahara has “got an extraordinary voice and is just so elegant and well spoken,” adds the proud mom.
And twins Knox and Viv (who turn 2 next month)? They’re “classic boy and girl,” says the actress. “She’s really female. And he’s really a little dude.”
Jolie describes their home life “as happy.”
Says the mom, “I got back from work last night, and everybody was playing music and dancing and I suddenly found myself dancing around with a bunch of little fun crazy people.”
Are more kids on the way? “No, I’m not pregnant [but] we’re not opposed to it,” she says. “We want to make sure we can give everybody special time. They’re kids now, and can play together, but they’re going to need a lot more talking in the middle of the night, like I did with my mom for hours. We want to make sure we don’t build a family so big that we don’t have absolutely enough time to raise them each really well.”
She says things are stronger than ever with Pitt, 45, despite those split rumors.
“[We’re not] against getting married [but] it’s just like we already are,” she tells Vanity Fair. “Children are clearly a commitment, a bigger commitment [than marriage]. It’s for life.”
She didn’t even mind his scraggly beard.
“I love Brad in every state,” she says.
Adds Jolie, “I feel fortunate to have a relationship where I actually feel safe enough to imagine growing old together.”

And still no mention of Pax! I’m sure she talked about him, those excerpts just haven’t come out yet. Either that, or he really is “The Forgotten Jolie-Pitt”. That will probably be the name of his tell-all memoir. Either that, or “Call Me Fred”.
As far as Shiloh dressing like a boy and thinking she’s a boy and wanting to be a little boy, this has all been discussed before in the tabloids, usually with headlines like “Why is Angelina turning Shiloh into a boy?” and “Is Angelina repressing Shiloh’s sexuality?”. But to me it just sounds like Angelina is letting her daughter be a kid and do kid things, letting her find her personality and be herself. Angelina and Brad seem to embrace it. But I’m sure it will start a new round of “Angelina is a horrible mother for letting her daughter wear pants” stories.
Also… “Montenegro style“? I’ve never heard that before.
