At just 8 years old, they’ve both traveled the globe and have superstar parents, but as much as Suri Cruise and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt seem to have in common on the surface, the truth is…their lives couldn’t be more different.
While Suri lives in a Los Angeles suburb with mom Katie Holmes and spends her spare time shopping for her designer wardrobe and high-heel shoes, Shiloh goes on movie shoots with parents Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and has playdates with household staff and her five siblings. Star spoke with sources close to the girls’ nannies to get an inside look at the lives of Hollywood’s two most famous 8-years-olds!
When it comes to Brad, a source close to the Jolie-Pitt household says Shiloh is smitten. “She idolizes Brad and pretty much likes all the same things she does,” the insider dishes, adding that the 8-year-old has even started walking around the house with a toothbrush, pretending it’s a cigarette, because she’s seen her dad smoking. Plus, Shiloh loves hanging out with her siblings. “She loves to play with her brothers, but she’ll also have tea parties with her sisters,” adds the source.
For Suri, though, her main influence remains her mom. Though she does enjoy secret visits with dad Tom Cruise, it’s Katie who’s with her 24/7, and TomKat’s little girl isn’t as social as they’d like. “She’s used to spending time alone,” an insider says of the only child. “Katie’s trying hard to socialize Suri and sets her up on playdates, but Suri doesn’t always love them.”
