All About Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s Middle Son

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s son Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt has a passion for the arts, just like his parents.

Despite growing up with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars as his mom and dad, the former couple’s middle son is pursuing work behind the lens.

“None of my children want to be actors,” Jolie told BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour in 2016. “I think they like the process of film from the outside.”

Pax has been exposed to the industry since he was adopted by Jolie and Pitt in the early 2000s. His youth included attending red carpet events with his parents such as the 2018 Golden Globes and the world premiere of Jolie’s 2019 film Maleficent: Mistress of Evil.

“He spent 3 1/2 years of his life in one place, in one room, in this one little iron bed with 20 other kids, and having no choice for himself to do things, having no freedom,” the actress said. “And suddenly, here he is in a very free situation with new brothers and sisters and a mom and dad.
