Angelina: Home-schooled kids are from different cultures, languages

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s French estate isn’t for sale—yet—but Chateau Miraval, where they married in 2014, could be on the market soon.

But even if the future ex-spouses divest themselves of the 1,100-acre estate, we don’t expect Jolie to be without a place to hang her hat in Europe for long.

While she has also maintained multiple homes in the United States, she has been busy ensuring that her children—all of whom were born abroad—are citizens of the world. Maddox, Zahara, Shiloh, Pax and twins Knox and Vivienne are all home-schooled, so they can theoretically pick up and go at any time.

“We travel often to Asia, Africa, Europe, where they were born,” Jolie told Vogue last year. “The boys know they’re from Southeast Asia, and they have their food and their music and their friends, and they have a pride particular to them. But I want them to be just as interested in the history of their sisters’ countries and Mommy’s country so we don’t start dividing. Instead of taking Z on a special trip, we all go to Africa and we have a great time.”

Jolie, of course, has traveled all over the world as a Good Will Ambassador for the United Nations’ High Commissioner for Refugees, and she bought a house in Maddox’s native Cambodia not long after she adopted him.

“All the kids are learning different languages,” she said on BBC Radio 4’s Women’s Hour in June. “I asked them what languages they wanted to learn and Shi is learning Khmai, which is a Cambodian language, Pax is focusing on Vietnamese, Mad has taken to German and Russian, Z is speaking French, Vivienne really wanted to learn Arabic, and Knox is learning sign language.”

Most recently Jolie’s rep has denied a report that the actress, who filed for divorce from Pitt on Sept. 19, has imminent plans to move to London, but she is looking for a new home in the Los Angeles area.
