Brad Pitt comes back to his family, he & Angelina take the kids to ‘The Smurfs’


Brad Pitt flew back to England during a little break in filming in Scotland, probably so he could spend some time with Angelina and the kids (after boning his attractive assistant?). Or maybe the film production has moved back to London…? I have no idea. This is the longest Brad has worked on a movie in a while – usually his filming schedule is only a few months, with weekends off, but I feel like he’s been working on this World War Z for more than three months already. Anyway, the Family Jolie-Pitt is all together in London now, and this weekend had another big family outing – this time to check out The Smurfs!

Was it ladies day out for the Jolie-Pitts?

Shiloh, Zahara and Vivienne were glued to Angelina Jolie as they exited a showing of the Smurfs movie in London.

Jolie held onto youngest daughter Vivienne, 3, and squeezed 6-year-old Zahara’s hand, while Shiloh, 5, led the way – blanket in hand, thumb in mouth!

They did have some male escorts though: Papa Pitt and Maddox, 10, weren’t far behind.

I didn’t see any photos of Maddox, but I did see Pax. Maddox might be too big for The Smurfs? He’s probably getting into boy movies now, not Smurfs. Anyway, I like Zahara’s little purple outfit – she likes to coordinate and look “pulled together”. Shiloh is kind of a mess with her silkie, and little Vivienne doesn’t look tearful, which is unusual. My favorite in these photos is little Knox, though – um, did Brad dress him? He’s giving me Little Lord Fauntleroy vibes with his knickerbockers and coordinated smoking jacket.


Before the Sunday outing for The Smurfs, though, Angelina had to entertain the kids while dad was away “working” (on his assistant). Us Weekly reports that Angelina did what many mothers do – spend the day exhausting the hell out of her kids so they’ll go to bed early.

Party ’til you pass out! As Brad Pitt continued shooting World War Z at Longcross Studios outside London, his love Angelina Jolie found just the thing to keep their six kids happy, entertained…and tuckered out!

On Saturday, Jolie, 36, dazzled her brood — Maddox, 10, Pax, 7, Zahara, 6, Shiloh, 5, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 3 — with something special in the garden of their rented home in London’s Richmond neighborhood.

“All of the kids were in the garden to play and she surprised them with a local group of children’s entertainers,” a source tells Us Weekly of the sunny day. “Think juggling, game organizing, races, that type of thing.”

Jolie’s treat was just the trick for Shiloh and the gang, the source adds. “The kids laughed and screamed all day. They were exhausted by the time the troupe left!”

Sounds like Jolie has made peace with her man Pitt’s epic shoot in the UK for the zombie flick — which had her contemplating making a break for it to the U.S. last month.

“She’s not pleased being at home while he’s on set,” another source told Us earlier this summer. “These are the longest hours he’s spent on a set in a while, so it’s just her and the kids with not much to do.”

[From Us Weekly]

Yep. Sounds nice. Mommy probably downed a fistful of Advil and made it through the day, just so she could have a peaceful evening.

There’s also a rumor going around that Angelina plans on enrolling the kids in a school in London, just because Brad’s film shoot is going on forever. A source told The Sun, “The children are home tutored in the United States, but wherever possible Brad and Angelina like to have them attend local schools to introduce them to the culture of each country.” Meh. I doubt it will happen.

    I guess the caption is because of the tabloids this week. As if they are usually right…LOL

    Brad didn’t fly back to his family from Scotland. He has been with his family since the film WRAPPED in Scotland over a week ago. THEY the family is in London. The shots of Brad getting off the helicopter were of him returning from a photo-shoot for EW. The Stylist has been tweeting and there are pictures of him with the Stylist and Assistant. Then he flew home and he/Angie took the kids to the movies. You can tell the sequence of events by looking at pictures that are posted all over the web.

    It is always fun when the fans know the true story

  2. Eve says:

    Little Lord Fauntleroy.

    LOL! He only needs the hat to complete the outfit.

  3. mln76 says:

    I don’t doubt they’d attend school as long as they are staying for more than a week or two. Last year while Angie was shooting her movie they attended a school in that country (my loonie memory is failing me so I can’t remember if it was Hungary or not).
    Oh and aren’t those kids cute.

  4. sam says:

    The film production is now in Essex, about half an hour away from London, so they are all back in London now.

  5. Green_Eyes says:

    Love the look Empress Z gives in the last photo..she rules! Lil Knoxx looks ever the lil Prince in his cute outfit! Smart cool she’s like so many other moms (and aunts) tire the heck out of them so they have fun & sleep good!

  6. hairball says:

    I just could not deal with all those kids.

  7. Addie says:

    They seem to be soild and doing well as a family. Good for them!

    Knox is starting to look like niether Brad,Angie or even Viv lol. Wonder who’s genes are dominating there.

  8. Franny says:

    i hope the youngest 2 grow into their foreheads soon.

  9. ShanKat says:

    I like what Angelina’s doing with her hair…it looks like she’s wearing her own, no more horse’s tail.

    But the girl cannot dress. What is she wearing?! Use your friend Jen Rade, Pet!

    (and I have a feeling she takes something waaaaay stronger than Advil.)

  10. Quest says:

    Love Empress Z’s hair-do.

  11. Larissa says:

    The kids are so cute!
    Knox looked a lot like Angelina but now looks more like Brad. Viv is all Brad.

  12. V says:

    The film production has left Scotland over a week ago.
    Brad came back to London when the rest of he family did, after angelina’s brief one day visit to the Netherlands.
    The kids often go to local schools when B or A are on location.

  13. Anon says:

    Funny how you all find this entertaining. Lol how boring your lives must be..

  14. Green_Eyes says: must lead such a boring life to comment on a family that you obvious dislike…

  15. anonymous says:

    Shiloh and Knox is all Brad Pitt, Viv looks like Agelina in her baby pictures, the only thing is Angie’s hair was darker, Angie have a big head this is what some people fail to notice because of her long hair.

  16. folly says:

    i think knox is my favourite,i just love that little boy

  17. lisa says:


    and yet you are on every single thread..

  18. euroschmuck says:

    what is she trying to do to Viv’s feet with those horrible plactic shoes? And Im not talking fashion but comfort and support for young feet.
    I like Knox, he is very pretty and nice. I think he will be the best looking one out of all their children in the future.

  19. Ella says:

    Actually Knox and Vivienne look nothing like Pitt. Shiloh has a lot of Pitt iin her. Is there are reason why we have daily parades of this family? Who takes their children out every songle day?

  20. tmbg says:

    Man, if I had to run after all of those kids, I’d at least wear some comfortable jeans and not black dress pants all the time!

    Angelina used to wear jeans once in awhile before adopting the all-black look.

  21. Thea says:

    I love Z. She is awesome with her pissy looks and her attitude. She will be something else when she gets older.

  22. Duh says:

    Angelina looks good. I think the girl twin is the only one that looks like bradpitt.

  23. Anna says:

    They were in Formentera, Spain Aránzazu Isabel Maria Sánchez Vicariois a Spanish former professional tennis player and friend of Bra told that:

    Messi is a superlative football star, how would Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie?
    -When they were at home in Formentera, was a buzz, the talk all summer, but was seen and unseen. When reporters came they were gone. They are more beautiful than in the movies, both. Gorgeous. And slept in my bed.

    - Have you washed your sheets?
    -Hahaha … Right. They are stunning, really, and we, my husband and I were the envy of women and men. When it transpired that they were at home do not stop receiving calls.

    - Are they near or stretched?
    -Near, even amid the hustle and spectacular.

    - How did you meet?
    -Brad Pitt was several times in the U.S. Open when I played. We agree, and you’re presented to us.

  24. Cheyenne says:

    @Ella: When the weather was nice I took my son out every single day. What would you do with your kid, lock him up in the attic?

  25. velourazure says:

    kinda sad that angie’s kids weigh more than she does…

  26. Lady D says:

    “i hope the youngest 2 grow into their foreheads soon”
    Picking on 3-year-olds? What’s the matter with you?

  27. Dusty says:


  28. CC says:


    I think Viv’s wearing jelly sandals. They’re very popular girls shoes, and not at all uncomfortable.

  29. lisa says:


    That was cute.. when was it that they were there. I couldn’t tell by the translation..

  30. Lady D says:

    @tmbg, I read an article in a magazine a few years ago where Ang talked about wearing all black. She said photographers hound her less when she wears all black. Mag’s don’t want to buy pictures of her if she is always in the same color or same looking outfit. The clothes look too similar to ones in previous pictures and are’nt worth as much, so they don’t hound her as much.

  31. really says:

    Empress Z rules!!!!!!!!!!!! Love the family fotos, just splendid.

    I find that little Knox looks alot like an actor – Micahel Pitt (from Boardwalk Empire, HBO)…. it is as if they are twins!

  32. mln76 says:

    I always laugh at people who think they know who a kid resembles as if they grew up with Angie or Brad and know what they looked like as kids. I have seen a couple of old pics on fan sites but really it’s all a matter of opinion. I cant even agree on who my siblings look like in my own family. That being said to me all 3 biological kids look alike. Knox and Shiloh especially.

  33. Lucy says:

    I am a huge brad and angie fan…and I love seeing pics of the kids…but even I must comment on the fact that the children (expeciallly shiloh) and even brad should run a comb through their hair…

  34. Deltona lakes says:

    Viv is all brad.. brad’s baby pictures look just like viv. Knox is all Angie and Shiloh is a combo.. I see both brad and Angie depending on the photo…she definitely has his eyebrows,color eyes and her mothers lips… But you see both in her…sometimes I think she’s all brad and other times I think she’s starting to look like her mother.

  35. Layzo says:

    @Ella, Do you have kids? They need to be out every day and playing if weather permits. It’s healthy for them.

    They are such a beautiful family. Love seeing them out and about.

    But screw the advil. I would need a xanex with that many kids. I am overwhelmed with my two. Of course I don’t have any nannies but still.. that’s a lot of kids. God bless them.

    AJ looks beautiful as usual. Motherhood suits her.

  36. Alix says:

    How will these kids have the opportunity to make/keep friends when the family never sets down roots?

  37. Nick says:

    @Larissa: i agree with you they All kids jolie pitt looks like brad nothing one looks Angilena

  38. Deltona lakes says:

    @min 76
    You’re right. Kids are always changing inl their looks as they grow older.

    My daughter looked like my husband when she was born and then she started looking like him and my mother until 4 years old and now at 9 years old everyone thinks she looks like me.

  39. I finally bought ‘The Jolie’ Vanity Fair issue. I’m not a Vanity Fair mag kinda’girl,but I must say,what a great article. As a fan,I’m glad I didn’t let this one pass me by.So,as one fan to another: It’s worth the read,and the money.Oh,and such cute and happy kiddo’s.

  40. neve says:

    shit A’s arms look so thin!

  41. Maritza says:

    Shiloh is the prettiest of them all, she is also my favorite! Anyway, Angie will be the next one to work on a film and Brad will stay home with the kids, or at least he’ll call his parents to help him. Angie does look thin but her face is just too beautiful!

  42. Sakyiwaa says:

    ”Brad, Assistant, Brad, assistant.”
    Hmm, Kaiser. Loves to stir the pot… Well, thanks to the loyal fans, it won’t ruin the broth… :-)

    So cute!! So so cute, handsome and beautiful!

    Anna. Love the Spanish article. Love, love, love Messi! My soccer stud crush… Better translation on the B and A part by anybody, please…

    Wow, the kids, the kids… We’re never gonna know who’s features they picked up till they’re adults.

    I looked my Dad as a baby… Now, I’m a Xerox of my Mum!

  43. Cara says:

    I don’t get why people criticize the way the raise their kids. Don’t they send them to Lyceé’s? All of the international Lyceé’s stay on the same schedule, whether you are in Prague or Vancouver. They are super strict with they way the teach, it is identical at every place, so there is really no way of falling behind. Anyway, the schools do this because they tend to serve the French ex-pat community who have to move around for jobs, diplomats, the works…My cousin is a French diplomat and he always has his kids enrolled at these schools wherever he is stationed.

  44. smh says:

    I’ve been meaning to see the Smurfs movie… is it any good? lol

  45. Annie_Grey says:

    Vivienne is so cute. She’s going to end up the prettiest, I bet.

  46. Maichal says:

    Knox is going to be brad pitt

  47. sallie says:

    “There is definitly wrong with shiloh – is acts and looks younger than she is. Has she been to a specialty Dr. to check her out?

  48. Cheyenne says:

    @sallie: God, you haters never give up, do you? First you claimed Shiloh had Down syndrome, when you wouldn’t recognize a real case of Down syndrome if it whacked you over the head. Now you claim something is “wrong” with her. Something like what? Do you have any kids of your own? She’s five years old. She looks and acts like a normal five year old. Go play with your dolls and leave this thread to people who actually know something about children.

  49. Lewis says:

    Yep agree with people those kids at all brad and yes nothing like Anglina ,but great family :D

  50. lisa says:


    tell you what. after you get your evaluation and post the results then we can all talk about Shiloh

    she is 5 and seems quite happy and lovely in fact.. Not sure how old you are, but doubt you are 5.. so what exactly is your excuse.. because there is beyond a doubt something “wrong” with you..

    Go to google and find a Dr. near you and get checked out. I’m sure you are going to make an interesting case study.

  51. Layzo says:

    @alix same thing could be said for military families that move around all the time. As someone who’s a military brat. I can say that moving around helps you adapt and learn about cultures and making friends is not that hard even if you move around constantly. You stay in touch with those who really matter.

    I think it’s a better education to travel around the world and not be stuck at one place. I think as long as you have your nuclear family that the environment doesn’t matter much at all.

    @sallie and you can tell just from these photos? Are you a child specialist or expert to make such assumptions? She looks like a healthy child to me but who knows. Anyone with a thumb sucker can tell you it’s really difficult to get a thumb sucker to stop sucking thumb because it’s attached to the body. Not like a pacifier that can be taken away. So she sucks her thumb. Big deal. She will eventually grow out of it. It’s a self soothing (along with her blankie) that some children use well into their adolescence. It’s parents who fear judgement from others that try to get the child to stop sucking their thumb or give up their security items. Or comments like yours that perpetuate the shame.

  52. Cheyenne says:

    Better translation of interview with Arantxa Sanchez:

    How would you describe Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie?
    –When they were in my house, it was the talk of the whole summer; but they left very soon after they arrived. When the paparazzi showed up they were already gone. They are much better looking than they are in the movies. And they slept in my bed.

    Have you washed the sheets yet?
    –Ha ha ha, of course. They’re really terrific, and my husband and I were the envy of everybody. When people found out they were in my house, the phone started ringing off the hook.

    Are they friendly or more distant?
    –Very relaxed and friendly, even in the middle of all the media fuss..

    How did you meet them?
    –Brad Pitt was at the US Open a few times while I was playing. We were introduced, we got along well, and that was it.

  53. Jordi says:

    I want Angie and Brad to do dinner theatre when they’re 70, starring in a Ropers-inspired show called “We’re Not The Jolies, But We Sure Are The Pitts!”and do routines about being married and wearing muumuus.

    She looks like a hands-on mom. That’s good.

  54. Camille says:

    Nice to see new pics of the JP’s. They are such cute kids, nearly as cute as my own ;) .

    I like what AJ is wearing, that top is cute. Jeans or a cute skirt would have gone great with it.
    She looks beautiful as usual, no one in Hollywood can top that face in my opinion.
    It looks like she has cut and lightened her hair too. I wonder if she is heading towards blonde?

  55. Deltona lakes says:

    It’s so funny that the tabs claim they have the inside scoop on the JP ‘s.. But never know where they will be next.. I read that brad and Angie were in Spain for 1or 2 days just the two of them on another blog. Someone tweeted they were spotted.. This was about a month ago when Brad started filming WWZ in England. Also around the time when the PA story was breaking. For the people who claim they call the paps this would a been a perfect time for them to be photographed all loved up.. Or squash the rumor.. But no one knew about the trip.


  56. Cheyenne says:

    @camille: I think Angie has more sense than to go blonde. She’s totally better as a brunette.

  57. Sakyiwaa says:

    @Cheyenne. Hiiii! :-) Awwwwww! Siiiggghhh…What a sweet interview! They had a ROMANTIC getaway! In Spain! I’m glad they’ve got nice friends like that lovely lady. Aww, I’m starting to tear up… Lol!

    Thank you so much, Chey! Mucho gusto! :-D You’re truly just wonderful! Hope u r having a lovely day!!!

    (clears throat), did somebody say, assistant…?

    I’d like to make a special dedication … To B & A.

    (grabs karaoke mic)

    We’re the champions… My frieennd…(guitar sounds)
    And we’ll keep on fighting till the end…
    (tehntehnteehnn! Love my guitar!)

    We are the champions…
    B & A are the champions…
    No time for Losers!
    Cos B & A are the champions…
    of the WOOORRLD!


  58. sandy#1 says:

    those children are adorable, the entire family is nice looking, not a bad family to grow up in, they seem very close and loving, they do seem to be very hands on parents, they do seem to be juggling their priorities rather well as parents.

  59. Sakyiwaa** Girrrrl,you play a mean air guitar!!

  60. Camille says:

    @Cheyenne: She is/was a natural blonde as a child and she has been blonde before (granted for various movie roles), so its a possibility.
    I prefer her as a brunette too. :D

  61. tmbg says:

    @Lady D – ah, thanks for the explanation. That was an old trick JFK Jr.’s wife tried when the paps wouldn’t let up on hounding her. According to the book her friend wrote about her, it still didn’t deter them. They’re like gnats and obviously haven’t given up on hounding this family.

  62. sandy says:

    that was a nice interview with Arantxa Sanchez. It was funny when the interviewer asked her if she had washed her sheets after they had slept in it. It’s nice to know Brangelina are genuinely humble and down to earth despite having it all.

  63. Flan says:

    @Ella, of course kids need to go out every day.

  64. Sakyiwaa says:

    Thanks Hanna! Can’t wait to find THE VF around here!

  65. Dena says:

    Viv looks to be a girlie-girl.

    Just want to point out that Suri Cruise and family would have been criticized about the blanket and thumb sucking. However, Shiloh and the Jolie-pitts haven’t. Perhaps it’s because the latter child/family is liked better than the former? Although I like the Jolie-Pitt family better I had to point that little hypocrisy out. (I include myself).

  66. Mieddle says:

    It’s one my favr family look knox looks handsome like her parent’s

  67. Mrs. Odie 2 says:

    I wonder if Brangelina just escort the kids to and from the theater or if they sit and watch The Smurfs. For me, one of the perks of having nannies would be not watching The Smurfs.

  68. Nancy C. says:

    they say ugly children become beautiful adults. let’s pray that is true.

  69. Crash says:

    Let that child WALK already. Jeez.

  70. Goofpuff says:

    Wow those of you who are so critical of their parenting obviously have never had kids or you’re too narrowminded to realize that there are other ways to parent than your way.

    The kids seem healthy and happy. That’s what counts.

  71. CanCan says:

    I loved watching movies with my child. It was fun to watch her enjoy it. The early years go fast.

    Maybe Shiloh’s pediatrician said to let her have her blanket and thumb. They do have a BIG life with famous parents and all that comes with it.
    Maybe her blankie gives her security. Maybe they want her to stop the thumb but she won’t. Who really knows. She’s only 5.

  72. joan of snark says:

    Angelina looks good? she looks like skeletor! eat woman, eat!

  73. Anne says:

    angelina is gorgeous woman. Knox looks just like Angelina. Vivienne – all Brad, Shiloh-mini John Voight
