At only nine years old, Shiloh identifies herself as a boy and her parents are reportedly very open to this difficult conversation. took a quick look at how Shiloh has shown signs over the years of possibly being a transgender child.

In a 2010 interview with Vanity Fair, Angelina Jolie discussed her daughter's gender identification, saying, "She likes to dress like a boy. She wants to be a boy. So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys' everything. She thinks she's one of the brothers." also looked at the comments Brad Pitt made to Oprah in 2008: "She only wants to be called John. John or Peter. So it's a Peter Pan thing. So we've got to call her John. 'Shi, do you want...' 'John. I'm John.' And then I'll say, 'John, would you like some orange juice?' And she goes, 'No!'"

Even years after this awareness, Shiloh still seems to identify more as "John." As notes, "In December 2014, she even wore a suit and tie to match her brothers at the red carpet premiere of her mother's film Unbroken."
