Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, the first biological child of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, was photographed on the red carpet at the premiere of the film “Kung Fu Panda 3” Saturday. Shiloh even had a role in the movie, as did three of the other five Jolie-Pitt children.
Jolie-Pitt offspring attending the premiere were Pax, 12; Zahara, 10; Shiloh, 9; and twins Knox and Vivienne, 7. Most were there because of their roles in the film. But they didn’t want to appear in the movie at first. It was Jolie who pushed them to join the production. But once they got into playing their parts, they enjoyed it.
“They were kind of shy,” Jolie told Entertainment Tonight Monday. “They don’t really want to be actors, but I didn’t want them to miss the opportunity. They came in, and they had a lot of fun with it.”
Shiloh rocked her signature pixie cut for the premiere. She also wore gray plaid pants with a matching vest. Some Twitter users complimented Shiloh’s “cool” red-carpet style. Others noted the striking resemblance she bears to her famous father.

Although she is undoubtedly a tomboy, rumors Shiloh might be transgender surfaced after Jolie told Vanity Fair Shiloh “wanted to be a boy” in 2010 and Pitt admitted she wanted to be called John during a 2008 interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Although she is flaunting her masculine side now, it doesn’t mean Shiloh is a “transkid,” as model Amber Rose once labeled her. “Shiloh could be a tomboy and as a teenager could become the most girly girl,” an unnamed transgender expert told Radar Online in September. “There are no concrete answers. Brad and Angelina are committed to giving Shiloh a loving family environment.”
It’s possible she could be gender fluid, which is a phrase employed by “Orange Is the New Black” star Ruby Rose. “Gender fluidity is not really feeling like you’re at one end of the spectrum or the other,” the Stella Carlin actress told Elle in June. “For the most part, I definitely don’t identify as any gender. I’m not a guy; I don’t really feel like a woman, but obviously I was born one.”
