Shiloh Jolie-Pitt is not trans, nor has she undergone any gender surgery so far. She has been a creative girl who has been exploring gender since she was two years.
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt has been in the public eye since she was a baby and has been able to pique the interest of the media because of her gender exploration. She is a media face, entrepreneur, actress, celebrity kid, and television personality who is well known as the daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Her mother is a well-known actress, famous for the movies Maleficent, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and many more. Shiloh’s father is an actor and producer, best known for Troy, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and many others. Her parents’ fame has been able to bring her to the spotlight.
What is Shiloh Jolie-Pitt’s Gender?
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt’s gender is female. The celebrity kid started exploring gender when she was two years old. According to her parents, she preferred to be called John or Peter when she was two years old. In 2008, Brad Pritt revealed in an interview with Oprah Winfrey in his words, ” She only wants to be called John or Peter. So it’s a Peter Pan thing. So we’ve got to call her John.” He further revealed that the names were brought up by the cartoon Peter Pan, just like every child that is engrossed in fantasy.
However, this did not stop some people and sources from tagging Shiloh Jolie-Pitt as the male gender. In 2010, in an interview with Vanity Fair, Angelina Jolie was questioned about her daughter’s dressing, and she answered, “Shiloh we feel has Montenegro Style. It’s how people dress there. She likes tracksuits, she likes suits. So it’s a suit with a tie, a jacket, and slacks, or a tracksuit. 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 is one of the brothers.”
Angelina Jolie further revealed in 2020, in her words, “I don’t think it’s for the world to interpret anything. She wanted to dress like a boy and have her hair cut like a boy, and she wanted to be called “John” for a while. Some kids wear capes and want to be Superman, and she wants to be like her brothers. It is who she is. It’s been a surprise to us and it’s really interesting, but there is so much more than that she is funny, sweet and pretty. But she does love a tie.”
It is certain that her gender still remains female as neither she nor her family has tagged her as male. Some sources have switched her gender based on her tomboy dress and the male name that she wanted to be identified with as a child. Other things like having a haircut, colors, and hobbies also brought about the misconception. Shiloh Jolie-Pitt was just emulating those things from her brothers and father.

Prior to the premiere, she wore her mother’s old Gabriela Hearst dress.
At the 2021 U.K premier of the movie Eternal, she was spotted wearing a black and white Dior gown on the red carpet. According to her mother, she asked if she could borrow the long dress, which she agreed to. Shiloh Jolie-Pitt went on to shorten the dress to above knee length and stunned in it for the movie premier instead of the big shorts, pants, and hoodies that she usually wore. On the night of the same day, she was spotted with her mother attending the movie’s London premiere after-party dressed in a short black shirt dress and a colorful denim shirt paired with a trainer.
