Why Are Brad & Angelina's Kids Dressing EXACTLY Like Them? Is It Normal?

Brad & Angie’s kids are clones! Pax & Shiloh copy dad’s laid-back style, while Maddox prefers mom’s action-hero flare!

Maddox, Pax and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt love their mom and dad’s movies — so much so that they’re even dressing like their big-screen characters! Just take a look at this photo of the Jolie-Pitt clan making its way through Narita International Airport in Tokyo, Japan, on July 26. Shiloh, 4, is totally emulating Brad Pitt‘s look from his 1992 movie A River Runs Through It; and in a white tank top and black pants, 8-year-old Maddox looks like he could have played Angelina Jolie‘s sidekick in her Tomb Raider movies. Just call him Larry Croft!

“Kids dressing like their parents is a very common phenomenon,” psychologist Dr. Jeff Gardere, host of VH1’s Dad Camp, tells “Kids learn their style and learn how to interact from their parents. It’s also a way for them to identify with their parents. The ones who dress more like mom identify with mom, and the ones who dress more like dad identify with dad.”

Six-year-old Pax, for example, is a total clone of Papa Pitt. Brad tends to go for a more casual suit/hat look when walking the streets, and Pax has definitely picked up on his dad’s laid-back fashion sense.

But Dr. Jeff Gardere acknowledges that the Jolie-Pitts aren’t exactly like everyday American families. The reason the kids are dressing similarly is likely a combination of basic parent-child dynamics, as well as the fact that Brad and Angie are international celebrities. “Even though [the kids] see [Brad and Angelina] as their parents, they’re also aware their parents have some significance in the world,” Dr. Gardere says. So it sounds like Brad and Angie’s celebrity status is another reason their kids want to emulate them. They’re fans of their parents, just like we are!

We’ve heard of kids wanting to dress like their parents before, but once again the Jolie-Pitt takes a phenomenon to a whole new level!

Who really cares how the kids are dressed? They are almost always smiling and it appears that mom and dad are doing the raising, not some ever changing fleet of nannies! How many children of mega stars get to spend this much time with thier parents? NONE!!! Brad and Angie must be doing something right!!!

I think they have their own way to raise the children. By the way, why do you HATE Angelina so much???

Cut the psycho babble. What a load of BS. Another fame-ho in the making no doubt trying to ride in on Dr. Drew’s coat-tails. . Shiloh dresses exactly how she likes. Angelina is not wrestling her into boy clothes every day as has been suggested.. As a result she is raising a happy, well adjusted child who is not being forced to wear frilly dresses and dress shoes against her will. All these kids appear to be happy and well adjusted. I call that good parenting.

I’ll tell you what’s NOT normal.
Angelina has been dressing her daughter to look like a boy, even getting the short haircut BEFORE the child could make those decisions on her own. But she tells everyone that the child wants certain clothes.
Maybe NOW she can pick out her outfits; but when this all started, she was very young.
So, if you have a closet full of great little girls’ outfits, she would be picking out those clothes, understanding that they were from “her” closet. She wouldn’t go looking (as a toddler) for boys’ clothing.
Can you see the press coverage when she all of a sudden has on something that would be considered feminine? Angelina has set up that child for confusion and embarrassment.
