Angelina Jolie said she feels she has more in common with Maddox than all three biological children with Brad Pitt.
The adopted son is pampered more than his biological son
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are Hollywood’s second-largest celebrity couple with 6 children, both biological and adopted. In the long and exhausting divorce of the power couple, the issue of children and the division of the huge wealth is always the most painful and difficult point to agree on.
Recently, news that Angelina Jolie intends to leave her entire fortune of 113 million USD (about more than 2600 billion VND) to her eldest son Maddox is being discussed by the media and the Maleficent movie actress has not denied it. .
A source close to Brad Pitt is extremely upset by this decision of Angelina Jolie. The actor believes that his ex-wife treats them too differently and needs someone to remind Jolie that she has 5 other children, including 3 biological children.
Many opinions also think that Angelina Jolie’s removal of her own child from the inheritance is too unfair, even absurd.
In fact, Angelina Jolie has never hidden her favor with the son she adopted from Cambodia. Maddox is the only child she adopted alone, not involved in the broken marriage with Brad Pitt.
Angelina Jolie believes that the personality of each child is determined from birth, will not change into adulthood and is not related by blood to the parents. That’s why she finds Maddox more connected and more like her than her own.
“I think children are born determined who they are. If you look at photos of my children, you will immediately notice their personality and energy. Even sweet, elegant. , self-contained, humorous or open-minded, they have remained the same since childhood.
They are born with too many qualities. And I believe that parenting is only about encouraging and supporting them, not interfering too much. People may believe that biological children will be more like their parents, but I am not. Maddox and I are extremely similar. So personality is not necessarily related to blood,” she shared with DailyMail.
Angelina Jolie thinks Maddox is her most similar child.
The special bond between Angelina Jolie and Maddox became stronger as her marriage to Brad Pitt deteriorated. While Pax is rebellious, Zahara has no clear stance, Shiloh is attached to his father Brad Pitt, twins Vivien and Knox are too young, Maddox is a strong shoulder for her mother to lean on.
A mature man for his mother to rely on
Since the mastectomy for breast cancer in 2013, Angelina Jolie’s health has deteriorated dramatically. In 2015, she continued to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed to prevent cancer cells.
After consecutive surgeries, Jolie lost the ability to have children and very soon entered perimenopause, greatly affecting both the physical and mental health of the 44-year-old actress.
Besides, Angelina Jolie also suffers from anorexia, which makes her body sick to an alarming extent. A British newspaper confirmed that after surgery, there was a time when Angelina Jolie weighed less than 40 kg.
Although her health is not good, Jolie still has to work intensely to make up for the losses after the divorce. In 2019 alone, Jolie has completed four film projects and one film with Marvel is waiting for the start of filming. Trying to work and be fresh, but everyone realizes that the once beautiful beauty is ominously thin.
The latest pictures of Angelina Jolie show that she is still very thin and pale.
When health is declining, it is not uncommon for Angelina Jolie to want to find someone mature and talented enough to inherit her movie empire. And Maddox is definitely the most reasonable choice because he is the most mature son and also has the most potential to follow in his mother’s footsteps.
In 2017, Angelina Jolie brought her two sons, Maddox and Pax, to Cambodia to join the cast of First They Killed My Father, which she directed.
If Pax only took on the task of taking behind-the-scenes photos as a hobby, his brother who was over 2 years old was a producer named in the crew.
Maddox and his mother are on the list of producers for First They Killed My Father.
In his first interview, Maddox praised his mother: “I always try to help everyone in the crew as much as I can. Angelina Jolie’s mother is very funny and easy to work with. She is a miracle.” . In contrast, Jolie also praised her son’s 4 months of rolling with the film crew.
To prepare for the production role, Maddox researched a lot of documentaries and it was he who encouraged his mother to embark on the project when Jolie was hesitant. Before First They Killed My Father, Maddox had experience in the cast of Ben Bo Bien, also directed by Jolie’s mother.
This year Maddox is about to turn 18 and prepare to go to college. Angelina Jolie told People that she is very proud of her son and looks forward to seeing what he will do at school.
It can be seen that Angelina Jolie was very pleased when her son soon revealed his talent in the film industry. This is probably why she trusted Maddox to be her only successor.
Although Maddox is the “golden boy” chosen by Jolie’s mother, her remaining children will certainly not be disadvantaged. Jolie will continue to raise her children in the same luxury as now with a large allowance from Brad Pitt. The couple’s remaining 5 children can also fully inherit from Brad Pitt’s father.
