PODCAST – The second episode of the miniseries Scandals dedicated to the children of stars looks at the daughter of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, the couple’s first biological child propelled too soon into the big game of celebrity.

October 2005. A clap of thunder falls on planet Hollywood. Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt divorce. The reason for this separation: Angelina Jolie, the actor’s new love, met on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith. Once the divorce is pronounced, the new couple only takes three months to announce that Angelina Jolie is pregnant. Shiloh Jolie-Pitt was born on May 27, 2006. She is the third child of the iconic couple, certainly, but above all: their first biological child.

From the day she opens a piercing blue eye in this world, she is propelled into the great game of stardom. His birth, and the attention paid to him, constitutes a real pop phenomenon, an echo of our relationship to Hollywood love stories that we would like to be cloudless, like so many fairy tales come true. Only a few days after she saw the light of day, the fruit of the symbiosis of the two Hollywood legends is already on the cover of People. In the years that followed, Shiloh learned to play with flashes, walked the red carpets, appeared at galas. But also undergoes the assaults of the paparazzi, struggles to find his identity, and suffers from the cameras during the over-publicized divorce from his parents.

In this mini-series devoted to the children of stars, the journalist Sarah Dahan wonders: How do we grow up bathing so young in an unreal world? Why did a little girl have to assume, so early on, the heavy status of a symbol? How can Shiloh manage to exist on her own given the disproportionate expectations that weigh on her? What was called the “Shiloh Scandal” and how did she get out of it?
