Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s adorable four-year-old daughter Shiloh developed a reputation as a tomboy early on. But when she insisted on getting her haircut and being called Peter instead of Shiloh, it raised some eyebrows.
Brad and Angie respected her wishes and are letting her just enjoy being a boy and hope it’s just a phase she’ll grow out of it. Except there’s a chance it’s not a phase.
Chaz Bono, formerly known as Chastity before undergoing gender reassignment, sees a lot himself in Shiloh and wants to sit down with Brad and Angie to talk about little Shiloh. Bold move.
"I would love to talk to [Brad and Angelina] at some point," Bono, 42, tells E! News. "To at least let them know we have this resource for them if they ever need it."
"I relate to these kids," he tells E! "The difference between them and myself is that I didn't articulate it and fight for it and say, 'No, no, no! I'm a boy!' I have so much respect for these kids that do."
In a Vanity Fair article last June Angie admitted that Shiloh wanted to be a boy. “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,” she told the magazine.
Just because she likes to play with boys doesn’t mean she is one. It’s sad that tabloids will put a 4 year-olds photo on their cover and comment on why she doesn’t like to wear dresses.
Angie added that she wasn’t worried about her because she was just like Shiloh as a kid. But Chaz sees it differently. Sure, he has a new book (Transition: The Story of How I Became a Man) and a new reality show (Becoming Chaz) to promote, but using a famous A-listers kid to do it is a little strange.
Do you think he has the best intentions or is he name-dropping Shiloh for press? You be the judge!
