Shiloh Jolie-Pitt may be known due to the popularity of her parents, but the teenager is working towards creating a name for herself. She is a dancer, and many viral dance videos have shown her talent. Here's a look at what netizens think of her passion.


Shiloh Jolie-Pitt is the first biological child of former Hollywood celebrity couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. She was born in 2006 in Africa, and the world has watched her grow into a beautiful and talented individual.

Since her birth, Shiloh has often been a subject of discussion, not only because she has famous parents but also due to her surprising choices, including her gender and sexuality.

From her early years, the teenager has always known what she wanted and stayed true to herself. During a 2010 interview with Vanity Fair, Angelina told the outlet that Shiloh has been exploring since she was a little girl.

According to the movie star, her daughter was only three years old when she made it known that she wanted to be a boy. Despite being a toddler, Angelina and Brad respected their daughter's choice. They cut Shiloh's hair like a boy and bought her boy clothes.

For years, the teenager dressed like a tomboy, thinking she was one of her brothers. Irrespective of the public's opinion, Brad and Angelina were proud that Shiloh stayed true to herself.

Surprisingly, despite all the love and support Brad has shown Shiloh regarding her choices, Angelina still believes that the actor is a bad father.


In 2016, at the beginning of their messy divorce battle, the "Maleficent" star suggested that Brad was a risky dad and sought full custody of their kids. The claims went public, further placing them in the public eye.

Angelina, Brad, and their family became a target for the paparazzi, making the father of six confess that his ex-wife had unleashed "hell." However, despite all the claims Angelina made about the actor's fatherhood, Brad maintained a good relationship with his kids and was allowed access to them.

A voluntary agreement allowed the actor's six kids to continue having therapeutic visits with their fathers. Sadly, Brad and some of his kids have become estranged over the years, but the actor and Shiloh's bond remains intact.

The teenager has often been described as her dad's mini-meme, as the father and daughter share a striking resemblance.

For example, in 2019, Shiloh was present for the premiere of her mom's movie "Maleficent: Mistress of Evil," and the public could not help but spot the uncanny resemblance between her and Brad. Her blue eyes, hair color, and hairstyle proved that she was her father's daughter.

Shiloh is more than a teenager; who loves exploring gender. Since her decision to "be a boy," the young lady has become an LGBTQ+ icon to numerous young children across the globe. However, since 2021, Shiloh has graduated to long locks, natural glam, and dresses as she rocks her teenage years.

In October 2021, during the premiere of "Eternals" in Rome, Shiloh graced the red carpet with her mom and sister, Zahara, donning a "girly look." Shiloh was clad in a tan dress for the occasion and had her hair wrapped in a bun.

However, on November 18, 2021, she returned to her old looks, keeping it simple with a black hoodie and ripped Denim pants for the premiere of "Paper & Glue."

Nevertheless, Shiloh still appeared gorgeous and girly as she rocked a beautiful updo rather than her signature short tomboy hairstyles. Since then, Shiloh has been spotted on several occasions, flaunting her long hair while in high spirits.

Although the teenager seems to be in a happy place without issues, not everything in her life has been a walk in the park. In 2020, Shiloh underwent hip surgery when her sister, Zahara, also went under the knife.

Neither Brad nor Angelina disclosed details of the medical procedure, but the latter wrote an essay about children's health issues worldwide and praised her daughters.

The Hollywood icon revealed that Shiloh and Zahara permitted her to write about their medical procedures in the essay as they knew that fighting to survive was something to be proud of.

According to the mom of six, her daughters cared for one another during those trying times in the hospital. In addition, the young ladies studied what the nurses did with Zahara so that they could help her later.

Shiloh was later photographed in crutches, and netizens knew she was the one who underwent hip surgery, as Angelina did not specify in the essay.

Following the surgery, Shiloh celebrated her 14th birthday, and Brad opened up about how proud he was of his daughter and who she had become. The actor confessed that he loved Shiloh for staying true to herself and being a fantastic sister to her siblings.

At 16, Shiloh has proven to be an embodiment of talent. Although she does not follow in her parent's footsteps, it appears that dancing is the calling of the young lady. Severally, videos of her dancing to songs have been shared on the internet, leaving netizens stunned.

In February 2022, a video uploaded on YouTube showed Shiloh dancing to Rihanna's "Skin" with two other dancers on what appeared to be a stage.


In another clip, the dancer moved her body to Lizzo's "About Damn Time" while donning a black hoodie, matching sweatpants, and black and white sneakers.

Then in May 2022, she shared another dance video on her YouTube channel. This time, she was dancing to Ed Sheeran's "Shivers." Since the video was shared, it has garnered many reactions and comments from netizens.


"I love how Shiloh is coming out of her shell!! I would love to see her dance to her choreography! She seems a bit stiff in these clips & I think if she is doing her own, she'll be comfier & loosen a bit!!🤍Keep dancing, Shiloh🙌🏾," one user wrote.

Another noted that Shiloh was an amazing, beautiful and transparent person with a lot of passion and love for dancing shows. A third respondent confessed, "Absolutely graceful and smooth. I like how she's starting to add a little bit of herself into each routine. Shiloh is impressive."


The fourth user said Shiloh was amazing, beautiful, and smart, while another wrote, "Born to dance…I love watching Shiloh dance."

The fans were not the only ones proud of Shiloh's moves in the video. An insider revealed to US Weekly that Angelina and Brad were very proud and would not opt if Shiloh wanted to become a professional dancer.


Since developing a passion for dancing, Shiloh has received much support from her parents. While she continues to make them proud, Shiloh also impacts her parents.

In 2020, Angelina revealed that her daughter was the reason she took on the project "The One and Only Ivan." She got interested after reading the book that the movie was based on, which Shiloh recommended. The film, which had a unique story, premiered on August 21, 2020, and fans loved it.
