Brad Pitt speaks out about daughter Shiloh wanting to be called John


Brad Pitt, previously, revealed that his daughter, Shiloh wants to be called John or Peter.

During an interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2008, Brad Pitt explained that the names John and Peter were inspired by the Disney movie, Peter Pan.

“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,” he said.

Pitt also revealed that whenever they would call his daughter by her name, she would correct them. Shiloh would usually remind her parents that her name is John.

“And then I’ll say, ‘John, you would like some orange juice? And she goes, ‘No!’ So, you know, it’s just that kind of stuff that’s cute to parents and it’s probably really obnoxious to other people,” Pitt said.
