Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's son, Pax, made a rare public appearance alongside his famous mother recently in downtown Manhattan. The usually private Pax Jolie-Pitt has long maintained a low profile, avoiding media glare. It's reported that he even opted out of attending his own college graduation to dodge the paparazzi's relentless attention.
Angelina Jolie's deep connection with Cambodia is widely known. It was in 2002 when she first adopted Maddox Chivan after a profound trip to Cambodia. Almost a decade and a half later, Jolie would return to the Southeast Asian nation to direct a heart-wrenching film, "First They Killed My Father," which intricately depicted the horrors of the Cambodian Genocide orchestrated by the communist dictator, Pol Pot.

The recent spotting of Jolie and Pax was in the chic Soho district, close to downtown Manhattan. Rumors recently swirled around Pax's covert life as an artist, operating under the pseudonym 'Embtto' However, these speculations were swiftly debunked as a hoax.
Insiders reveal that the mother-son duo's New York trip is fueled by artistic pursuits. Angelina is currently engrossed in producing a Broadway play titled 'The Outsiders.' Simultaneously, Pax, an art aficionado, not only contributed to the behind-the-scenes of "First They Killed My Father" but is also involved in a similar capacity for Jolie's next cinematic venture.
Commenting on their harmonious professional dynamic, Jolie once remarked, "We work well together. When a film crew is at its best, it feels like a big family, so it felt natural." In a past interview, Jolie candidly spoke about the challenges and joys of raising a multicultural brood, stating, "They're pretty great people and because there's so many of them, I think they've had a very significant effect on each other. I'm very honest with my kids. And I'm very human with my kids."
