What Does Brad Pitt Really Think About Shiloh Jolie-Pitt's Red Carpet Appearances?

While there's no doubt that Brad Pitt has had many meaningful Hollywood roles in his life, the actor has made it pretty clear that the most important role for him is being a father. But it hasn't always been easy. Back in 2019, he told CNN, "My dad always said he wanted to give me a better life than he had coming from extreme poverty, and he did it. And it makes me think, as a dad, what do I have to offer that's better than I had, to my kids?" However, he did tell GQ in 2017 that he knows he needs to do better as a father, especially after his dramatic split from ex-wife Angelina Jolie. "Kids are so delicate. They absorb everything. They need to have their hand held and things explained. They need to be listened to. When I get in that busy work mode, I'm not hearing. I want to be better at that," he explained. 

And while Pitt and Jolie's divorce has certainly been complicated enough for the two of them to still be battling it out over the custody of their six kids, one report says that the proud father is happy to have recently seen this about his daughter, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt — even if it was from thousands of miles away. 

Brad Pitt's beaming with pride for his daughter Shiloh

Angelina Jolie surprised her fans by bringing her children on the red carpet with her during her media blitz for her film, "Eternals." In fact, many fans were surprised to see her daughter Shiloh Jolie-Pitt rock a different look on the red carpet in a dress that looked like it was recycled from her mother's closet. Shiloh also wore a reconstructed version of her mother's Christian Dior dress for the film's UK premiere, as well. According to InTouchy Weekly, Shiloh's father, Brad Pitt, is happy to see his teenage daughter coming out of her shell with her new look. One source told the publication, "Brad doesn't want her growing up so fast but he's proud to see her on red carpets. It's been a confidence boost for Shiloh. Of course, he worries about the effect of Hollywood on all his kids, but he does trust Angie's instincts in this area."

While no one knows in which direction Shiloh will go, especially when it comes to the entertainment industry, at least one thing is certain: she has the best of both worlds when it comes to her parents' Hollywood genes.

Shiloh Jolie-Pitt is 'one of the goofiest, most playful people'

When it comes to what Angelina Jolie thinks about her daughter's style, back in 2010, the actor coined the term "Montenegro Style" to describe then 4-year-old Shiloh's personal preference in an interview with Vanity Fair. At the time she said her daughter was "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."

Jolie added that she certainly wasn't worried back then, just like she's probably not worried about Shiloh now. The Hollywood star added, "Shiloh's hysterically funny, one of the goofiest, most playful people you'll ever meet. Goofy and verbal, the early signs of a performer. I used to get dressed up in costumes and jump around."

While whether or not Shiloh does become a performer or a screen star like her famous parents remains to be seen, for now, it seems like her mother has her focused on totally different interests instead.

Angelina Jolie wants her family to move forward

While both Angelina Jolie and her ex Brad Pitt have done what they can to protect their children from the limelight, they also seem to realize that their kids are public figures just as much as they are. That might be one of the reasons why Jolie has been more open to taking her kids on the red carpet and sharing behind-the-scenes photos of their life on Instagram. In fact, back in September, Jolie shared photos of Shiloh and her sister Zahara Jolie-Pitt finishing up their summer reading on her Instagram. The proud mom captioned her post: "These are some of the favorites in our house. Would love to know yours." It was one of the rare glimpses that Jolie has given into her children's private lives at home.

Now, as far as what the future holds for Shiloh and her siblings, Jolie told The Guardian that she simply wants her family to heal after years of divorce drama and custody battles. She said, "I want everyone to move forward — all of us, including their dad. I want us to heal and be peaceful. We'll always be a family." By the looks of how things are going, it seems like Pitt, Jolie, and their six children are definitely on the right path to healing.
