In Los Angeles, all of Angelina Jolie’s children but Maddox, who’s studying abroad in college at South Korea, came to the Maleficent: Mistress of Evil premiere with her. In Tokyo, 18-year-old Maddox made a special trip over from Seoul to walk the red carpet with his mom and sister Zahara, 14. And tonight in Rome, Jolie was joined by her teens Zahara and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, 13.
Dark colors were the family’s unofficial dress code: Shiloh wore a black varsity jacket with gold detailing with dark jeans and sneakers; Zahara wore a dark green gradient dress; and Angelina was in a glittery black column gown. They looked amazing:
Shiloh and Zahara also got candid with photographers on the red carpet. Shiloh stuck her tongue out, and Zahara and Angelina held hands:
There was a lot of joy and sass conveyed in their photo call:
Jolie has talked openly about how her six children have changed her. She told Extra last week that parenting her kids as they’ve gotten older has helped her rediscover parts of herself.
“When your kids are a certain age, you go through stages, and you want to make sure they’re safe and you want to make sure they understand certain values,” she started. “And then you get to a place where you’ve done a lot of that, and you feel that they’re good and you also want them to know joy, and it brings back a part of you that is fun and alive and silly.”
“You have it in waves when they’re little, but when they’re older, they want to know you because they need to get through life and all the hardships in life, and they need how to weather those punches,” she continued. “And so you don’t just teach them how to survive it, you teach them how to thrive and manage it, so that takes a different level of spirit.”
