Like Creepy Mother, Like Daughter: Shiloh Asked Mom Angelina For “A Dead Pet”

Her mom Angelina might be covered in tattoos and have once worn a vial of human blood around her neck, but in our opinion Shiloh Jolie-Pitt wanting a “dead pet” marks a whole new generation of crazy. The story starts with Shiloh coming across a dead bird. Instead of screaming and crying and/or poking it with a stick like we would have done at her age, she calmly asked her mother if she could keep it. Forever.

Says Angelina, “She came in and said, ‘Can I have a dead pet?’ And I’m … ‘Uh-uh, I don’t think it’s healthy, honey. I think they have to put him in a box,’ and I had to run out to find, like, a taxidermy bird. I just worked it out for her.” See, our parents would have just given us the side-eye and gone back to their issue of Parade magazine, not run out and bought us another dead bird. Either that or they’d open up one of those military school brochures that always seemed to be lying around…

So did 4-year-old Shiloh understand that her mom wasn’t just swapping out one deceased yard critter for another? Says Jolie, “No. But I figured that I couldn’t keep the actual dead bird from the yard, so I swayed her toward one that had been cleaned, at least.” AT LEAST, Angelina. Jolie also went on to describe her daughter as “hilarious.” So…we guess you had to be there. [Photo: Splash News Online]
