Angelina Jolie was talking about how her daughter Shiloh loves to dress like a boy -- and the actress couldn't seem to stop.
"I have a very strong-willed 4-year-old girl who tells me what she wants to wear, and I let her be who she is," she gushed to the British magazine Stylist recently. As for Shiloh 's famously short haircut, "[she] cried and said, 'Please cut my hair off,'" Angie explained. "I think it's beautiful." Angie couldn't have sounded prouder. The only problem? In interview after interview, Angelina talks about the boyish way Shiloh dresses and behaves, but the other kids don't warrant a mention. Brad Pitt's not happy about it.
According to a report in the U.K.'s Closer magazine, he's upset that Shiloh's getting too much attention at the expense of the other children -- and has begged Angie to stop going on and on about Shiloh. "Brad is very bothered by Angelina's public statements," an insider close to the couple confirms to Life & Style. "She's being too revealing. Angelina releases more telling information in a press junket than she does in conversations with friends."
And whenever there's a disagreement -- over Shiloh or anything else -- a notoriously controlling Angie will overrule Brad, often harshly. "They get into vicious fights sometimes, and Angelina can be very mean to him," the insider notes. "Even when they're out at dinner with friends, she sometimes snaps at him, saying, 'You're wrong.' She puts him in his place a lot."
