The 56-year-old actor remains close to Shiloh, who he shares with ex-wife Angelina Jolie.

They added that “Brad is so proud of Shiloh and who she has become. He loves that she always stays true to herself and is so good to her brothers and sisters.”

Angelina Jolie Pays Tribute to Late Mom Marcheline Bertrand on Mother's Day

Angelina Jolie celebrated her late mother, Marcheline Bertrand, on Mother’s Day in an op-ed for the New York Times.

She wrote, “Mother’s Day is hard for anyone who has lost their mom, but this year must be particularly so because of coronavirus. So many people have lost a parent suddenly, without being by their side, able to care for them and return their love in the way they’d always imagined.”

Angelina continued, “I lost my mother in my thirties. When I look back to that time, I can see how much her death changed me. It was not sudden, but so much shifted inside. Losing a mother’s love and warm, soft embrace is like having someone rip away a protective blanket.”

Marcheline passed away from ovarian cancer at the age of 56.

“When my father had an affair, it changed her life. It set her dream of family life ablaze. But she still loved being a mother. Her dreams of being an actor faded as she found herself, at the age of 26, raising two children with a famous ex who would cast a long shadow on her life. After she died, I found a video of her acting in a short film. She was good. It was all possible for her,” Angelina continued. “But now, with my girls growing up and being the ages I remember so well as a daughter, I am rediscovering my mother and her spirit. She was a girl who danced all night on the Sunset Strip and loved rock ‘n’ roll. She was a woman who loved, even after loss, and never lost her grace and her smile.”

She added, “I now know what it’s like to be alone and to wrap my coat around those I love. And I know the overwhelming sense of gratitude at being strong enough to keep them safe and warm. When your children come into your life, they immediately and forever come first.”

Angelina Jolie Pens Letter To Congress Urging To Increase SNAP Benefits

Angelina Jolie has written a letter to members of congress, calling on them to increase food stamp benefits program Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) during the coronavirus crisis.

“Many of the most vulnerable children in America have missed nearly 740 million meals at school, due to closure resulting from the rapid spread of coronavirus. With parents facing lost jobs and wages, many of these children are going hungry,” the -year-old actress and humanitarian wrote in the letter dated April 20 to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

She continued, “While strengthening SNAP will not alleviate all of the challenges low-income families are facing during the public health emergency, it will help ensure that fewer children go to bed hungry in our country.”

Congress has increased food assistance benefits by more than $15 billion due to the pandemic, however, Angelina and other advocates have argued that even more is needed.

Earlier, Angelina penned an op-ed about just how vulnerable children are during the crisis.

Angelina Jolie Implores Parents to Just Be Honest With Kids

Angelina Jolie is sending out a special message to parents amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

“I was not a very stable youth,” the 44-year-old actress and Special Envoy of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees shared in a guest column for Time. “In fact, I never thought I could be anyone’s mom. I remember the decision to become a parent. It wasn’t hard to love. It wasn’t hard to dedicate myself to someone and something greater than my life. What was hard was knowing that from now on I needed to be the one to make sure everything was okay. To manage it and make it work. From food to school to medical. Whatever would come. And to be patient.”

“So now, in the midst of this pandemic,” she continued. “I think of all the mothers and fathers with children at home. All hoping they can do everything right, answer all needs, and stay calm and positive… It is a lovely thing to discover that your children don’t want you perfect. They just want you honest. And doing your best.”

Angelina Jolie Stresses The Importance of Keeping In Touch With Others During Stay at Home Orders

Angelina Jolie is expanding on her open essay about the coronavirus pandemic with Time magazine.

The -year-old actress and philanthropist talked with Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, California’s Surgeon General, about the risk that coronavirus poses to vulnerable children in unsafe living conditions in a video chat.

The physician emphasized the importance of people reaching out to each other.

“I think it is so important that people hear that,” Angelina shared. “To love each other, check in with each other. Be there, be a support group, keep your eyes open whether you are a teacher or a friend.”

She continued, “I really do hope people hear this, and they do reach out, and they do pay more attention, and they are not sitting in a moment when they think, ‘Well maybe, but it’s not my business.’ Because those kids aren’t going to school right now, and teachers can’t see the bruises and people aren’t identifying what is happening within some homes.”

Angelina Jolie Writes Op-Ed on How Children Are Vulnerable During the Pandemic

Children might not be at risk for coronavirus, but Angelina Jolie is revealing how children are still vulnerable during the pandemic.

The 44-year-old Oscar-winning actress and humanitarian wrote an op-ed piece for Time in which she says that young people who are victims of abuse will be unsafe at home during isolation.

“Isolating a victim from family and friends is a well-known tactic of control by abusers, meaning that the social distancing that is necessary to stop COVID-19 is one that will inadvertently fuel a direct rise in trauma and suffering for vulnerable children,” Angelina said in her article.

She added, “It comes at a time when children are deprived of the very support networks that help them cope: from their trusted friends and teachers to after-school sports activities and visits to a beloved relative’s house that provide an escape from their abusive environment.”

Angelina recently donated $1 million to No Kid Hungry to support children who no longer have access to daily meals because of the school shutdowns.

“For millions of children and youth globally, schools are a lifeline of opportunity as well as a shield, offering protection — or at least a temporary reprieve — from violence, exploitation and other difficult circumstances, including sexual exploitation, forced marriage and child labor and domestic violence,” Angelina wrote. “It’s not just that children have lost support networks. Lockdown also means fewer adult eyes on their situation. In child abuse cases, Child Protective Services are most often called by third parties such as teachers, guidance counselors, after school program coordinators and coaches.”

Angelina has asked that people make sure to “make a point of calling family or friends, particularly where we might have concerns that someone is vulnerable.”

She concluded the piece by saying, “It is often said that it takes a village to raise a child. It will take an effort by the whole of our country to give children the protection and care they deserve.
