Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s Twins Knox and Vivienne Are ‘Super Close,’ Have a Special ‘Connection’

Life&Style Weekly 21 August, 2021 - 10:20pm

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt‘s youngest children, Knox and Vivienne, share a special “twin connection” that has allowed them to spend so much time together as best buddies, a source tells Life and Style exclusively.

“She and Knox are super close,” the insider adds, before saying that they “can hang out with each other for hours”

The 13-year-old twins entered this world one minute apart on July 12, 2008, at Lenval Hospital in Nice, France. As the youngest of the six Jolie-Pitt children, they’ve shared a special bond as their next oldest sibling, Brad and Angie’s daughter Shiloh, 15, is closer in age to her sister Zahara, 16, and those siblings are so tight.

“Vivienne likes to act, like her parents. She loves books, fantasy worlds and fairies, she has an incredible imagination. She might be the most like Angie,” our source explains.

Viv made her film debut in 2014 as a young Aurora, playing opposite her mother in Angelina’s Disney hit Maleficent.  She got the part because other child actors were terrified of how Angie, 46, looked in her costume.

“We think it’s fun for our kids to have cameos and join us on set, but not to be actors. That’s not our goal, for Brad and I, at all. But the other three-and-four-year-old (performers) wouldn’t come near me. It had to be a child that liked me and wasn’t afraid of my horns and my eyes and my claws. So, it had to be Viv,” Angie told Entertainment Weekly in 2014.

Extroverted Knox resembles his father, with his big blue eyes and his penchant for newsboy caps. But shy Vivienne is her mom’s adorable shadow, as the pair are photographed out together frequently on grocery store runs, hitting up the local pet supply stores and even having mother and daughter flower shopping days.

Angelina and Vivienne’s affection and close bond is so noticeable, as they put their arms around each other or hold hands whenever they go out. Even at the actress’ movie premieres, her older children and Knox are confident posing on their own for the paparazzi camera, while Viv always stands close to Angie, who often offers her a protective arm to let her shy daughter know that she’s always there for her.

Reps for Angelina and Brad, 57, did not immediately respond to Life & Style‘s requests for comment

Angelina Jolie breaks record as fastest Instagram user to one million followers

NME 21 August, 2021 - 10:20pm

Angelina Jolie has become the fastest user to reach one million Instagram followers, beating recent holders of the record, NCTʼs Taeil Moon, Rupert Grint, and David Attenborough.

The Hollywood actor joined the social media platform yesterday (August 20) to share a photograph of a heartbreaking letter from a teenage girl in Afghanistan who is now facing Taliban rule.

According to the Evening Standard, Jolie gained 2.1 million new followers in just three hours, which beat Attenborough’s four hours 44 minutes, Grint’s four hours one minute, and Moon’s one hour 45 minutes. As of the time of publishing, the Tomb Raider actor has 6.4 million followers.

“This is a letter I was sent from a teenage girl in Afghanistan,” Jolie captioned her first post. “Right now, the people of Afghanistan are losing their ability to communicate on social media and to express themselves freely.

“So I’ve come on Instagram to share their stories and the voices of those across the globe who are fighting for their basic human rights.”

She continued: “I was on the border of Afghanistan two weeks before 9/11, where I met Afghan refugees who had fled the Taliban. This was twenty years ago.

“It is sickening to watch Afghans being displaced yet again out of the fear and uncertainty that has gripped their country.

“To spend so much time and money, to have blood shed and lives lost only to come to this, is a failure almost impossible to understand.”

Jolie concluded: “Watching for decades how Afghan refugees – some of the most capable people in the world – are treated like a burden is also sickening. Knowing that if they had the tools and respect, how much they would do for themselves. And meeting so many women and girls who not only wanted an education, but fought for it.

“Like others who are committed, I will not turn away. I will continue to look for ways to help. And I hope you’ll join me.”

A number of big names took to the comments to welcome Jolie to Instagram and to thank her for using her platform to spread awareness, including British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful, who said: “Thank you for using your platform for good.”

Earlier this year, Jolie was named the ‘Godmother’ of the 2021 Women for Bees program as part of an initiative to help save bees and empower women to be entrepreneurs.

The initiative, which is a partnership between perfume house Guerlain and UNESCO, aims to train women to be beekeepers as part of a 30-day programme. The long term aim is to have 50 women undertake the programme, with 2,500 hives built in 25 UNESCO biosphere reserves around the world, and 125 million bees restocked.

The world's defining voice in music and pop culture since 1952.
