Angelina Jolie has revealed Brad Pitt’s anxiety over their children getting tattoos. The Unbroken director has admitted that her husband was left feeling uneasy when their daughters, Vivienne, six, Shiloh, eight and Zahara, nine, asked if they could get some ink themselves.
Angelina – who has various tattoos herself – explained: ”They’re already asking me about tattoos. How do I say no? It’s especially hard for dads and girls. For some reason men get a little more sensitive when the daughter gets a tattoo. And Brad thinks the girls can do no wrong. He’s mush in their hands.”
However, Angelina, 39, and Brad, 50, – who are also parents to three boys, six-year-old Knox, 11-year-old Pax and Maddox, 13 – both agree that their children should pursue a different careers to their own. She told Radio Times magazine: ”We’ve always said, if they want to act, we won’t let them only act, because it’s not enough. They’ll have to find a real job at the same time. But I’m hoping that when they see all the other things in the world, they’ll be inspired to be writers, politicians, activists. They are very individual people. So I imagine they’re not going to follow their mom and dad.”
