Angelina Jolie: Shiloh cried and begged to have short hair


There are a bunch of Angelina Jolie stories in this week’s tabloids, but most of them are pretty uninteresting. The National Enquirer has one about Angelina Jolie inappropriately kissing Johnny Depp while they were filming The Tourist, even though the script didn’t call for it. They made it sound like Angelina just wanted it “spicy” and Depp was offended. However, doesn’t The Tourist have a bunch of sex scenes? Weird. Also, the British tabloid Grazia has some strange quotes attributed to Angelina. I’m not sure if Jolie actually said this stuff or not, but it’s interesting:

Salt star Angelina Jolie has revealed that it is “not her choice” that daughter Shiloh wants to dress like a boy.

The 35-year-old actress has six children with partner Brad Pitt, 46, and their four-year-old daughter Shiloh has recently been making headlines with her tomboy dress sense and short hair.

Jolie admitted that Shiloh didn’t like her previously long hair and asked her mother to cut it off.

She told UK magazine Grazia: ‘It’s not my choice. I have a very strong-willed four-year-old girl, who tells me what she want to wear and I let her be who she is. I think people think kids should be a certain way, but I feel they should wear what they feel like wearing and they should express themselves.’

“Shiloh cried one night and said, ‘Please cut my hair off. I don’t want to have long hair’.”
She added: ‘I’m not going to leave it long because somebody thinks I should.’

[From Monsters and Critics]

It seems like Grazia is just guessing as to how Angelina felt and just put those words in her mouth, but whatever. There are worse things, I suppose.

Additionally, Star Magazine has a great story about Angelina and her alleged lesbian lover:

Sitting side by side in a candlelit white leather booth, Angelina Jolie cozied up to a beautiful woman with short, dark hair.

“Angelina and this lady were pretty playful and affectionate,” an eyewitness at popular date spot Dresden Restaurant tells Star. “They were having a lot of fun.”

The pair couldn’t keep their eyes off of each other as they talked and lingered over their drinks for hours.

On another occasion, Angelina brought the same woman to meet up with several of her closest friends – “Angelina was laughing and seemed very relaxed… she was wearing very little makeup and slipped under the radar.”

Intimate encounters like these are becoming a regular occurrence for Angelina. She has reportedly spent time with her special friend, who appears to be also in her 30s, at the Dresden at least three other times in the past two months.

An insider speculates: “Who knows? Maybe Brad is OK with Angie seeing some women on the side.”

Another insider: “Brad just doesn’t know yet that Angie is dating someone,” noting that Angelina often disappears for hours and is unreachable on her cell phone. “She is still very much into women.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

And then the story goes into an ad for Andrew Morton’s new book, in which a source describes Angelina as “megasexual” and that women are Angelina’s “true love.” As for this mystery woman: meh. Pics or it didn’t happen. I find it hard to believe that Angelina goes to the same place with her lesbian lover FIVE times and no one has ever gotten a photo. That being said, the lady sounds nice, and I’m sure Brad is into it. Oh, wait, I meant to say that Brad is SHOCKED by how SCANDALOUS Angelina is.

    Why is she still talking about this?

  2. meme says:

    she is turning into kathy lee gifford with the endless talk about her kids and brad. don’t her children deserve some privacy?

  3. LondonLady says:

    Enough already. I think the less obsession about celebrity offspring the better, they are only kids, its not right.

  4. anon says:

    Most people don’t care about how her daughter dresses or wears her hair. She is the one who seems to be making it into a controvery by mentioning it so often…

  5. Whatever says:

    ‘I think people think kids should be a certain way, but I feel they should wear what they feel like wearing and they should express themselves.’

    I couldn’t agree more. I let my kids dress and wear their hair the way they like it.

  6. lisa says:

    OMG.. please don’t let the be another Attack a 4 year old. Her hair has actually grown out a lot since the left Venice..

    Her hair cut reminds me of how Meg Ryan’s hair looked in that move You’ve Got Mail. I remember how cute I thought her hair was. When saw the pics of Shiloh recently.. MY mind went right to Meg Ryan in that movie.. Also Kristen Stewart in Panic Room.. VERY freakin cute.

    Most of these “interviews” were given when she started her promotion in Cancun and Washington. Just cut and paste. She is not talking about it a lot. They are cutting and pasting interviews like these are new. And my thought is they are not.

  7. Majosha says:

    Again with this?

  8. albeli says:

    I’m so sick of her and her bony ass.

  9. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    If it wasn’t such a big deal then why is she talking about it in every interview?

  10. moo says:

    Why does she keep babbling about Shiloh? Sounds like SHE has the problem with her kids attire here… not anyone else. She’s just a KID…..

    YOU, on the otherhand, COULD dress in something other than BLACK, my dear. You are NOT Morticia!

  11. Sumodo1 says:

    Agreed. I am not interested unless they are put in harm’s way or in a hospital bed.

  12. denise says:

    She added: ‘I’m not going to leave it long because somebody thinks I should.’

    I doubt Shiloh said this, doesn’t sound like something a four year old would say.

  13. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    All tabloid quotes which means all bulls*it. Gazia is tricky they commonly distort the truth. So Bullsh*t on that one. No reliable sources and no evidence = garbage.

    As for The Tourist, I hope like hell there is a ton of sex scenes in the movie. I swear I want every other scene to be something with sex between Depp and Angie. I just think they are so hot together (on screen) and hell them making out for however long the movie lasts makes me giddy.

  14. Praise St. Angie! says:

    I gotta agree with some of you…I don’t think she’s talking about it all the time, I think they’re recycling quotes.

    And I think the reason she did talk about it at all is because the tabs were making such a big deal out of it. I think she’s just trying to diffuse the “controversy”.

    regarding the lesbian lover thing…IF it’s true (and that’s a big if because I agree that there would be pics if she had been to the same place several times), I’m betting that Pitt is OK with it. Might turn him on, you never know.

  15. lucy2 says:

    Denise, I think they are attributing that quote to Angelina.
    I think she should stop talking about it, and the media should stop fixating on it and reprinting the quotes because holy crap, it is NOT THAT A BIG DEAL!

  16. Moreaces says:

    I wish peoplo would leave this Child alone, she seems very happy and loved, I for one am very glad that she allows her children freedom of expression, they all seem very well rounded and happy, they all seem to have their own unique style. Good for you Angie. keep up the good work.

  17. RHONYC says:

    how ‘enlightening’ *eyeroll*.

    i was brought up in the school of “your wearing this. period. get over it.”


  18. YeaRight!!! says:

    OMG, shut up about Shiloh’s hair already!

    We get it. This 3-4 yr old already has the capactity to know she wants to be a boy, and called John.

    Who the fu*k cares anymore??

    Isn’t she suppose to be promoting a movie, rather then pimping her kids privacy in any media form that will interview her?

  19. grisgris says:

    Note how they had to slip in that Angie wasn’t wearing any make up on her “date”, because no make up = lesbian. Ridiculous.

  20. Moreaces says:

    Most people don’t care about how her daughter dresses or wears her hair. She is the one who seems to be making it into a controvery by mentioning it so often
    You have got to be kidding right, all rag mag’s seem to talk about this child to no end. I think she,,meaning angie addresses the issues only when asked.

  21. Moreaces says:

    She added: ‘I’m not going to leave it long because somebody thinks I should.’

    I doubt Shiloh said this, doesn’t sound like something a four year old would say
    Duh, Shiloh didnt say it Angelina did, Think for a sec, Its Angie at the interview, not her child… smh

  22. Jude says:

    Angelina Jolie: Shiloh cried and begged to have short hair… so mommy loves her as much as the other boys.

  23. Whatever says:

    You have got to be kidding right, all rag mag’s seem to talk about this child to no end. I think she,,meaning angie addresses the issues only when asked.

    Exactly. I don’t get all the comments tht she is the one bringing it up. There have been plenty of stories about this, whether it is that Angelina is “forcing” her to dress like a boy to gross speculation about her sexual orientation. Angelina brought none of that up, the tabloids did.

  24. pookie says:


    Right on! Cool kid, cool hair, cool mom, what’s the stink about?

  25. snowball says:

    *stamps feet*

    I refuse to read this thread any farther because NO ONE has brought up anything about veins.

    *huffs away, now satisfied*

  26. it’s definitely inappropriate to bring celebrity children into the conversation.

  27. denise says:

    @ Moreaces

    Duh! You don’t know that for sure because the way it’s worded, makes it seem like Shiloh said it.

  28. Rosanna says:

    Yeah and you all parents who work, aren’t you supposed to speak about work when you are in your workplace? How come that you always talk about your kids and annoy the f*ck out of who’s there with you???? Angelina does the same thing ANY parent does: endlessly ranting about her “wonderful” kids. In that she’s very regular.

  29. Bodhi says:

    Oh please, they are just recycling the same story again & again. She isn’t still talking about this, the rag are just re-using prior statements & making new ones as they see fit. Jeebus…

    Anyhoo, I love Shiloh’s “I’m SHOCKED, ust SHOCKED” face! lol!

  30. Cheyenne says:

    This came from Grazia? They’re totally recycling something they got from some other source. That’s all they ever do, when they aren’t creating bullshit out of thin air.

  31. river says:

    @denise, i think the appropriate question should be: why is she still being asked about Shiloh’s hair-cut by the ever-dumb media?

  32. jc126 says:

    I don’t buy the quotes. The tabs are just trying to imply that Shiloh is a (gasp!) lesbian, because she likes a “tomboy” style of dress.
    Oh, and I was just looking at Us Weekly’s site, and they have a pic of Shiloh jumping in a pool with just swim trunks on. I assume it’s a pap pic and don’t think it’s cool for them to show photos of a 4 y/o female child without a bathing suit top on.

  33. mslewis says:

    As mentioned, if there are no pics of Angelina and her “lesbian lover” then there is no “lesbian lover.” Can you imagine Angelina Jolie, with or without makeup, spending “hours” at a restaurant, cuddling and making goo goo eyes at a woman and nobody took a picture? I mean, really!!! Nobody in that restaurant had a cell phone camera? Nobody called the paps, even after all those “hours” the two were there? That’s just crazy. Just think how much money someone could get for just one picture of Angelina Jolie and another woman cuddling and hugging in a booth at a restaurant. That’s just crazy talk, right there. But there are some sad people who will believe anything negative about this woman. But just stop and think for just a minute. The story is just plain nuts.

    And, Angelina “disappears for hours” and no one can get in touch with her? Please!! All anybody has to do is call a pap because they follow her everywhere. What a silly story. But it makes sense in a way because none of the other lies have stuck so far so giving her a secret lesbian lover might sale a few more raqmags.

  34. P.J. says:

    Talk about overexposed! People magazine has a bit about Maddox’s 6th birthday on its front page today. I thought, “poor kid, he’s only 6 and people around the world know all about him!”

    Angelina should just stop talking about these kids. She can stipulate before the interview what subjects she will not discuss. If someone asks her about Shiloh’s clothes, she is under no obligation to answer the question or provide any information whatsoever about her children.

  35. CD says:

    All those that keep saying that no one is talking about Shiloh’s hair or clothes is lying. A four year old kid is being called all sorts of names by strangers on the internet but they get angry when her mother defends her own daughter? hmm

  36. Cinderella says:

    Leave Shiloh alone! *sob*

  37. I Choose Me says:

    Again with this shit!!! Not that I believe Angelina’s still talking about this but that the tabs are still on about it. And some of you act like you believe every single damn thing written about celebs in the rag mags and blogs. I mean yeah, sometimes there’s a good ol juicy scoop for us to cackle or shake our heads over but most of this stuff, most of the time – speculation or outright fabrication. You gotta gimme insider names or show me pics for me to put store in ANY gossip. Now where’s my HOT GUY FRIDAY post dammit! I need some sexay to start my weekend off right.

  38. Liz says:

    Grazia is a tabloid there is no way in hell AJ spoke them Grazia, Star and Us Weekly cut and paste interviews AJ did 3 weeks ago. Star magazine had a “interview” with her about Salt in last weeks issue. Do you really think she would talk to Star (Baby #7, Brad Sleeping with the nanny” Twins Have DS) Magazine GMAB As for People magazine they always announce the popular celebs kids bday they did the same thing with Kingston Rossdale

  39. Morgs says:

    Jenny Shimizu anyone? And bs Morticia de Ville can’t do anything without paps following her. She’s the one calling them and setting up their “candid” photo opportunities. She’s disgusting how she pimps out her kids.

  40. BethL says:

    The Grazia quote is completely madeup. It’s one of the sleaziest tabloids and known for making-up quotes. It sounds like they took her quote from Vanity Fair or junket and recycled to sound more extreme. I have to laugh at the people who say nobody cares about Shiloh’s clothing and hair. Just look at the tabloids and past threads on this or any other site. People were screaming “Angelina is turning Shiloh into a boy”. I’m sure the same people claiming not to care are the same people who were attacking on Angelina and Shiloh.

    The Star story is ridiculous. First of all none it sounds scandalous. How is talking, drinking, laughing an affair? This describes how I and probably how most women interact with each other. As mentioned before, numorous “dates” for hours and nobody takes photos? Why do people call Angelina a lesbian? Hasn’t she had only one lesbian relationship? I can’t even recall the tabloids saying she was involved with any women beside Jenny S.

  41. eja102 says:

    so, if not wearing make up makes you a lesbian, if I wear make up, am I straight?

    I like angelina.

  42. DD says:

    several of her “closest” friends? That alone sounds false. She doesn’t really seem like the enduring friendship type. Unless unlike most aspects of her life she’s been hiding her close friends really well this whole time.

  43. RHONYC says:


    angie has said in a past interview that she had to mind her actions toward shiloh, as she had a tendency to ‘feel’ more for her adopted children because they were in dire circumstances when she found & adopted them.

    the reality is ALL of her kids are way privileged.

    despite what she wants the world to believe, angie reads her own press.

    she never wanted to project this image of her ‘perfect’ anglo blond-haired blue eyed female offspring with brad (america’s heartthrob) dressed like an girly lil’ angel…

    google it.

    it would somehow slight her image of her adopted children.

    it’s ridiculous.

    if the shoe was on the other foot, and she was dressing zahara (reminder…her ethiopian adopted daughter) in boyish attire…having her look like…well, ya know…. AND shiloh dressing like a princess, there would BE talk for sure.

    does she really want us to believe that zahara is all mini valentino purses and shiloh is all polo shirts and cargo pants?

    it’s totally transparent and stupid.

    the boys dress similar. pax seems to emulate his older bro maddox.

    but, shiloh DOESN’T emulate her older sis zahara.



    there…my 1st full expletive.


  44. Solveig says:

    I intended not to talk about kids, because I think that in doing so I would contribute in this speculation and obsession those kids never asked for, but as MichaelK (or whoever is writing on DListed) wrote:

    St. Angie should simply just say, “It’s Montenegro style! Google it, you dumb fuck!” It will save a lot of time.

    Enough said.

  45. Meanchick says:

    I dont care how she dresses her kids. If AJ didn’t care, she wouldn’t defend it. By the by, when kids cry & beg for something, does that mean we’re supposed to give in? What happens if little Shi-Shi cries & begs for a gun?

  46. Liz says:

    OMG,All these comments about a madeup tabloid story. All her kids are criticized people call Maddox gay for wearing nail polish, they talk about Zahara’s “nappy” hair, they call the twins retarded. Shiloh is still the golden child she was when she was wearing dresses with her flowing blond hair and she is now because she is the bio child. Go to gossip sites and see how they label the pics… Shiloh and her siblings visit dad. Us weekly has a pic of Zahara and Shiloh in the pool yet the caption doesn’t mention Zahara. Don’t worry about Shiloh she will always be the Golden Child whether she is straight or gay, transgendered or not

  47. DiMi says:

    RHONY – I disagree. I think Angelina should focus more on the fact that she almost never bothers to comb little Zahara’s hair at all, rather than focusing on cutting Shiloh’s hair every once in awhile.

    Nobody in the media cares what the adopted kids look like, they only care about the biological kids.

    But I’m black, and I cringe every time I see a pic of beautiful Zahara without her hair combed at all while Shiloh has a complete outfit on. (And I love natural hair because I wear my hair natural, but it still has to be taken care of properly. They don’t bother with Zahara’s hair which is a common problem when white people adopt black babies.)

  48. canadianchick says:

    My mom had me wear short hair and now I’m quite the girly girl. Meh, Shiloh will find her way. Saw Salt with hubby, it was better than I thought it would be,far-fetched in James Bond kind of way. I wanted to give La Jolie a big hamburger with double cheese and fries-she was pretty frail looking.

  49. Mrs Odie 2 says:

    Shiloh’s hair looks like AngieJo hacked it off in a Joan Crawford Mommie Dearest rage. It’s a terrible haircut. Paxie-Mad always look so chick and Shiloh looks awful. Angie is going overboard trying to show she doesn’t favor her bio child. I’m surprised Brad doesn’t spoil and protect his firstborn daughter from his psycho, anorexic BPD girlfriend a bit more.

  50. Maritza says:

    The boys clothes and the short hair don’t bother me, it’s the fact that she is letting Shiloh believe she is a boy. Enough is enough! Angelina is encouraging her,little girls look for their mother’s approval.She even has Shiloh wearing boys bathing shorts for the swimming pool.I’m not against a teenager having their own style but a 4yr old? this is ridiculous!

  51. dj says:

    I just saw Salt yesterday and it was great. There is a scene where Angelina is dressed in disguise and has short haircut that looks similar to Shiloh’s. It makes sense she saw mommie for weeks in this wig and wanted to have the same look. No biggie. A haircut does not make you gay or lesbian folks.

  52. OC lady says:

    I really don’t get how the non-fans can pick on a little kid b/c they can’t stand Angelina. It’s not like Shiloh was the first person in the history of the world to want short hair and dress up as a tomboy. As a kid, I grew up with many tomboys around me. I saw many girls with their Mary Lou Retton hair cuts wearing boy clothes. One of my friends even changed her name to be “tougher” and more boyish–from Cammy to Cameron. It wasn’t a big deal. She grew up just fine.

    But all these judgmental, “backseat parents,” tabloids, and non-fans are saying that it’s the end of the world and Angelina is a psycho who is ruining Shiloh, letting her believe she’s a boy or turning her into a boy. It’s totally sick (and smacks of latent homophobia?) I don’t care who her parents are, or what excuse you use to defend yourself–picking on a 4 yr old is pretty low. 🙁

    I find the comments on Suri Cruise and Will Smith’s kids equally disturbing. They are little kids, after all. If you dislike the parents–fine. But, picking on the kids to bash the parents is just sad.

  53. Mrs Odie 2 says:

    DiMi, have you seen Wanda Sykes’ special “I’ma be Me”? She justifies her decision to have a white sperm donor with her white wife by saying if she died, she wouldn’t want a white lady in charge of her black kids’ hair. Your post made me think of it.

  54. mole says:

    not the hair story again

  55. Liz says:

    Zahara is Brad’s first and favorite daughter . Love zahara and Shiloh hairstyle and fashion
