Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Celebrity Babies

Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, and familyAngelina Jolie says Brad Pitt has had to become tougher on their children.

The Oscar-winning actress raises six children with the actor - Maddox, 10, Pax, eight, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - and while she has always been the stricter parent in the past, Brad has now had to be more involved with the discipline.

"I used to be the tougher parent but since the birth of the twins, Brad's had to play bad cop more often. It also depends on which of the children we are talking about. Brad has always had this incredible bond with Mad, who's very smart, and Brad loves teaching him about history and art and culture - it's an amazing thing to watch them together. I think I'm a little closer to the girls, maybe, but he's always making them laugh. The children are usually very well-behaved though."

Shiloh Jolie-PittShiloh Jolie-Pitt has a new nickname to be more like her brothers. The five-year-old daughter of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie is known for her tomboy habits and is now said to have asked her family to call her 'Shax' because it is similar to the names of her siblings Maddox, 10, Pax, seven, and three-year-old Knox.

"For a while Shiloh had everyone in the family calling her Ben for some reason but she grew tired of that. These days she's decided she wants to be known as Shax because Maddox, Pax, and Knox's names all end in the letter X. Angelina and Brad are going along with it and think its cute," a source told the National Enquirer.

Angelina - who also has daughters Zahara, six, and three-year-old Vivienne with Brad - has previously revealed that Shiloh always wants to be like her brothers: "Shiloh dresses like a little dude. Shiloh, we feel, has Montenegro style. It's how people dress there. She likes tracksuits, she likes [regular] suits. She likes to dress like a boy. She wants to be a boy. So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys' everything. She thinks she's one of the brothers."

When asked whether she wants to expand her brood, she told Marie Claire, "Nothing planned at the moment, but we just don't know. I could end up pregnant."

The In the Land of Blood and Honey director also praised Brad and credits him with changing her outlook on life completely. The 36-year-old actress insists the 47-year-old actor is the "love" of her life and she can't imagine ever being without him: "[Brad] has expanded my life in ways I never imagined. We built a family. He is not just the love my life, he is my family. I hold that very dear. I suppose what I've learned from Brad is to be able to have the kind of family whose happiness and wellbeing comes before your own. I'm very grateful to have such a loving family, and I wouldn't have that without him."


Angelina Jolie Hits Back at Lawsuit

Angelina Jolie at the premiere of In the Land of Blood and HoneyAngelina Jolie claims she has "never seen" the book she is alleged to have based In the Land of Blood and Honey on.

The Oscar-winning actress - who is making her directorial debut with the Serbian love story - is being sued by Croatian journalist James Braddock for copyright violation, as he maintains the movie is an adaptation of his own book The Subject Work, which was published in 2007.

Jolie, however, has dismissed the lawsuit as "par for the course" of directing a film: "It's par for the course. It happens on almost every film. There are many books and documentaries that I did pull from. It's a combination of many people's stories. But that particular book I've never seen."

In a lawsuit filed in a federal court in Illinois, Mr. Braddock claims he met with producer Edin Sarkic - who is now working on Angelina's movie - several times throughout 2008 to discuss the possibility of his tome being adapted for the big screen. He maintains the pair talked about the details of the book, which similarly to In the Land of Blood and Honey documents the love story between a female prisoner and a Serbian soldier, "including plot and character development and the story's cultural significance and historical accuracy."

I don't do a lot with them, and I'm very homebound. I'll talk to my family. I talk to Brad ... But I don't know, I don't have a lot of friends I talk to. He is really the only person I talk to," she said to Marie Claire.

While the 36-year-old beauty explained the couple have no plans to expand their brood at present, she conceded she could "end up pregnant" at any moment. Asked whether she and Brad are hoping to add to their family, Angelina said, "Nothing planned at the moment, but we just don't know. I could end up pregnant."

The Oscar-winning actress - who raises six children, Maddox, 10, Pax, right, Zahara, six, Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, with the Hollywood actor - is grateful to have had the support of Brad while she filmed her directorial debut In the Land of Blood and Honey.

"I have a wonderful partner in Brad and we take turns working always. So I was with the kids when he shot Moneyball, and when he finished he took a few months off while I was shooting this. It was helpful [to have them there], but the kids had to be kept away from most of the set. So they would be outside playing with the fake snow and I would be inside working on something else," Jolie told People.

The 36-year-old star - who was accompanied to last night's premiere of In the Land of Blood and Honey by Brad and his parents, Bill and Jane - admitted she "couldn't" have worked on the project without her support system in place. Speaking about having the trio by her side, Angelina added, "It means everything. I couldn't be standing here without them."

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Movies

You know, you sit down with her, she slings hash, she sits there and cusses like a sailor, and she’s hilarious. Angie’s got the same kind of thing, you know, the same approach.”
