Jolie upset over lack of black Disney princessesJune 5th, 2008 - 9:03 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, June 5 (ANI): Angelina Jolie is upset that even in this day and age, there are no black Disney princesses.
The star and partner Brad Pitt are parents to four kids Maddox, Pax, Zahara and Shiloh.
And while Shiloh, the youngest, is their biological child, the other three are from different parts of the world. Maddox and Pax are from Asia while Zahara is from Africa.
Jolie tells Britain’s OK! magazine that since educating their kids about culture is important to her and Pitt, even the colour of the children in the cartoon matters, reports the Daily Telegraph.
For this reason, she cant understand why there are no black princesses in Disney cartoons.
“There still isn’t a Disney princess that’s African and it’s very difficult because our daughters’ getting into princesses right now and it upsets me,” she says.
The A-list couple will soon be expanding their family when Jolie gives birth to Brads twins in August this year. (ANI)
