Angelina Jolie’s and Brad Pitt’s daughter Shiloh Jolie-Pitt just turned 11, and to celebrate, Angelina took the little girl, along with some family and Cambodian friends, to the magical world of Disneyland. The celebration occurred a day early, with Jolie and her flock showing up at Disneyland on Friday. Shiloh officially deserves those happy birthday greetings on Saturday, noted the Daily Mail.
A guide clad in plaid attire helped Angelina, star of Disney’s Maleficent in 2014, and her flock of children weave their way through Disneyland, from the rides to the Ridemakerz store. But where was Shiloh’s father Brad Pitt, who currently is in the midst of a divorce from Jolie?
The publication noted that Angelina’s third husband was paying his respects at the memorial service for the late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Pitt has been dealing with “dismal reviews” for his Netflix satire War Machine, which started to stream Saturday. Rotten Tomatoes greeted it with a 56 percent critic approval rating (out of 48 reviews).
But for just-turned-11-years-old Shiloh, the birthday celebration was extra special because some of their pals from Cambodia joined them on the trip to Disneyland, reported People.
The friends are among the same child actors who appeared in Jolie’s film First They Killed My Father. Angelina’s movie airs on Netflix this fall. A source told the magazine that Jolie’s and Pitt’s daughter had wanted only to see those pals as her birthday wish.
“All [Shiloh] wanted for her birthday was to see her friends from Cambodia. She wants to show them America.”
While Shiloh got her birthday wish, thanks to Angelina, fans of Jolie and her children were thrilled to see them at Disneyland. Social media blew up with photos and clips that fans had taken at various places in the park, including the Ridemakerz store in Downtown Disney, which resembles a Build-a-Bear for toy race cars.
Some fans shared the images that they had snapped on Twitter.
Angelina previously shared with reporters the bond that her children had formed with their pals from Cambodia. At the Cambodian premiere of First They Killed My Father in February, Jolie noted the friendships.
“[My] children have close ties to the children here, many of them are their best friends,” she commented.
Shiloh told the crowd at the premiere about her affection, speaking in the Cambodian language of Khmer.
“My name is Shiloh and I love Cambodia.”
Tweens are known for enjoying casual, yet cool, style, and Shiloh is no exception. To celebrate Shiloh’s 11th birthday, In Style looked back at Brad’s and Angelina’s daughter’s cutest style moments, including the best photos showcasing her “tomboy” style.
The blue-eyed, blonde-haired 11-year-old has a love for “menswear,” according to the magazine. For example, when Shiloh attended the 2016 Kung Fu Panda 3 premiere with Jolie, who plays the voice of Tigress in the film, she sported an open gray vest, matching pants, and laced-up sneakers in true “tomboy-cool style,” pointed out the publication.
In 2015, at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, Jolie’s and Pitt’s daughter was bundled up in a gray hoodie, complemented by a graphic tee. And both Shiloh and her big brothers charmed fans at the 2014 Unbroken premiere when she looked like a twin copy of her siblings in a dark suit.
In the past year, Shiloh (who is Brad’s and Angelina’s first biological child) has refined that famous tomboy style so that it’s more personalized, noted Hollywood Life.
Although there’s been some drama during the past year in the wake of Jolie’s and Pitt’s highly publicized split, both Brad and Angelina have reportedly been careful to keep Shiloh and their other five children as their number one priority.
Consequently, Shiloh has developed a variety of hobbies. In December, she explored photography with her mom. Jolie was seen taking her daughter to Samy’s Camera in Los Angeles for a fun, mom-and-daughter bonding trip. But Angelina didn’t stop there. She also treated her daughter last month to a new ukulele, which they purchased at Hollywood’s well-known Guitar Center. Shiloh was seen strumming the ukulele as they left the store.
