In 2002, Jolie, 44, adopted Maddox at the age of seven months from a Cambodian orphanage after bonding with him while shooting Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. She was married to Billy Bob Thornton at the time, but adopted him on her own.

He'd eventually became a big brother to five younger siblings: Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 11.
