Angelina Jolie appears in December 2010 issue of Vogue in a tiny corset, proving that two pregnancies (one of twins) are no match for her waist. It always wins.
She also discuses her lack of proficiency in the kitchen, how she hired nannies to speak to Pax and Maddox in their native languages (Vietanmese and Cambonian, respectively), and how she got her four-year-old biological daughter Shiloh a taxidermied bird when she wanted to take home a dead one she found.
According to US Weekly:
“She[Shiloh] came in and said, ‘Can I have a dead pet?'” Jolie recalls. “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.”
Did Shiloh know about taxidermy?
“No,” Jolie says. “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.” Jolie said Shiloh is “hilarious.”
