In a throwback to October 2015, the Jolie-Pitt family graced the pages of Vogue's November issue, showcasing not just their unity but also their commitment to global citizenship. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, alongside their children, made a striking appearance in a spread shot by renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz. "We travel often to Asia, Africa, Europe, where they were born," Angelina shared in the cover story, highlighting the diverse upbringing of their children: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne. This approach to education, where the children are home-schooled by teachers from various backgrounds and religions, reflects the family's belief in the importance of understanding different cultures and histories. Angelina's desire for her children to appreciate not just their own heritage but also that of their siblings underscores a deep commitment to global awareness and empathy.
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt: A young humanitarian
In particular, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt's early exposure to humanitarian work stands out. In April of the same year, Angelina, serving as a UN Special Envoy, took Shiloh with her to meet refugees in Lebanon. "When she was sitting on the floor with her UN cap writing her notes as she was talking to someone, I was flashing on myself 15 years ago and thinking, I know that moment," Angelina recounted. This instance was not just a mother-daughter bonding experience but a crucial step in Shiloh's understanding of the world and her role in it.
The article reflects Angelina's approach to parenting, where not all children are expected to walk the same path. "The kids that don't want to go don't go," she says, acknowledging the individuality and interests of each of her children. This philosophy allows each child to explore their own interests while being aware of and sensitive to global issues.
The Jolie-Pitt family's feature in Vogue was more than a fashion statement; it was a testament to their lifestyle and values. As the family continues to grow and evolve, their early exposure to diverse cultures and humanitarian work remains a pivotal part of their story. It's a narrative that not only enriches their lives but also inspires others to embrace a more inclusive and compassionate worldview.
