In a new interview to promote her movie, Salt, Angelina Jolie defends her daughter Shiloh’s masculine clothing choices and quirky personality.
“I think she [Shiloh] is fascinating, the choices she is making. And I would never be the kind of parent to force somebody to be something they are not. I think that is just bad parenting,” she told Reuters.
Earlier, Angelina coined the term “Montenegro style” to describe Shiloh’s unique look. Several well-known stylists have explained that it is a term she made up. Angelina has also said that she “wants to be a boy.”
Continued Angelina, who is also raising Maddox, 8, Pax, 6, Zahara, 5, and twins Knox and Viv, 2, with partner Brad Pitt, “Children should be allowed to express themselves in whatever way they wish without anybody judging them because it is an important part of their growth.”
“Society always has something to learn when it comes to the way we judge each other, label each other. We have far to go,” added Angelina, who has often made her own actions into social statements, including declaring that she would never wed Brad until it was legal for everyone to do so.
