Shiloh Jolie-Pitt is being compared to late actor River Phoenix, and she’s never even acted before. However, the comparison has nothing to do with Shiloh’s acting chops — she’s simply chopped off her hair, and it looks very River-esque. Because the daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt keeps rocking a boyish look, it looks like those transgender rumors about “John Jolie-Pitt” probably won’t die down anytime soon.
GQ recently pointed out that 9-year-old Shiloh Jolie-Pitt seems to be taking hairstyle inspiration from a ’90s heartthrob who died much too young. The Jolie-Pitts were recently spotted leaving Los Angeles International Airport, and Shiloh definitely looked too cool for school with her all-black ensemble and parted, choppy bowl-cut that would make Nick Carter and Devon Sawa envious. Instead of choosing one of these still-living celebrities to compare Shiloh Jolie-Pitt to, GQ just had to go and get all morbid and weird by saying that she’s a dead ringer for a dead guy.

Shiloh’s tomboyish style isn’t just inspiring River Phoenix comparisons — it’s also thoroughly confusing the internet. There are still a lot of people who are convinced that everyone should be referring to Shiloh as John Jolie-Pitt.

Shiloh Jolie Pitt makes a beautiful girl. And John Jolie Pitt makes a beautiful boy. I’m interested to see how this develops.

Perhaps the huge Caitlyn Jenner story made people start thinking about Shiloh. As the Inquisitr previously reported, there’s a reason so many people are convinced that Shiloh is transgender — a tabloid used an old Angelina Jolie quote to spread a rumor that Shiloh self-identifies as a boy and that she wants to be called John. Kanye West’s ex-girlfriend, Amber Rose, helped to spread the rumor by referring to the little girl as a “trans kid” in an Instagram post.
However, Angelina Jolie has never said that Shiloh Jolie-Pitt is transgender. During a 2008 interview with Oprah, the actress revealed that Shiloh was simply pretending to be a Peter Pan character when sh
