Even though we all know mothers like some of their children more than others, it’s starting to get painfully obvious just how much Angelina Jolie prefers Vivienne, Pax and Zahara. As one of four children, my mother certainly played favorites. However in my home playing favorites meant one child constantly got front seat preference. In the Jolie-Pitt home, it means certain children get cast in mom’s movies and certain children will be forced to buy tickets full price.
Months ago Angie cast Vivienne as a young princess Aurora in her film Maleficent. While we let that one slide because Vivienne fit the profile of a young Aurora, we can longer pretend that Mother Ang isn’t playing favorites. The latest casting news from Us Weekly reveals that Zahara and Pax are now going to be in the film.
What about Shiloh, Maddox and Knox? Well sources tells Us Weekly that Shiloh did get offered a part, but she grew disenchanted on the set. While they used the word bored, I would use the word enlightened. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that Ang expected Shiloh to share a trailer with someone — or wait for her turn in line during lunch.
As she ate a stale bagel she stole from the catering table on set one day, she looked at all the personal assistants flocking around Pax, Zahara and Vivienne and she realized what a joke her role was in the movie — and in her life.
She’s Shiloh Jolie-Pitt and she’s better than some kind of cameo. Let her mother play “movie” with her favorites. Shiloh had better plans, and they involved tricking her father into doing a ridiculous TV commercial.
