Angelina Jolie revealed that her blonde-haired blue-eyed natural child Shiloh, 20 months, is the ‘outcast’ in her ethnically diverse family.
The actress - who has adopted three other children from around the world - said in a revealing interview, that her only biological child, fathered by actor Brad Pitt, is the odd one out because of her bright blonde hair.
Angelina and partner Brad Pitt also have six-year-old Maddox from Cambodia, four-year-old Pax Thien from Vietnam and two-year-old Zahara who they adopted in Ethiopia.
But the 32 year-old Beowulf star explained Shiloh’s resemblance to her father which set her apart from her siblings.
Angelina told Look magazine: “She looks like Brad. It’s funny because she’s almost going to be the outcast in the family because she’s blonde and blue-eyed.”
Jolie also admitted she would have been happy not to have a biological child.
But changed her mind after seeing Brad with Zahara and Maddox after bringing her to the U.S. from Ethiopia.
She said: “I saw Brad with her and Maddox, and I realised how much he loved them - and how a biological child would not be in any way be a threat.”
The actress said she felt a deep connection to her adopted children because of the pain they had endured in their young lives.
She added: “I felt so much more for Madd, Zahara and Pax because they were survivors.
“Shiloh seemed so privileged from the moment she was born.
“But I’m conscious that I have to make sure I don’t ignore her needs, just because I think the others are more vulnerable.”
But when asked if she was glad she’d had Shiloh, Angelina avoids singling out her biological child - at the expense of her adopted children.
She said: “It was so lovely. But at the same time, the first time we saw a picture of Zahara before we met her we were both very emotional.
“It was different journeys but very similar feelings.”
