Saturday Night Social: Maddox Jolie-Pitt Is All Grown Up

Emily Alford Aug 11, 2019. 24 comments

In my heart, it is always 2006, and Maddox Jolie-Pitt is a child who loves snacking on crickets, according to the tabloids I secretly buy and read in my college apartment. But alas, it is 2019, and Maddox Jolie-Pitt is an 18-year-old whose mother takes him to lunch in Cleveland to celebrate his birthday.

People reports that Angelina and son spent the day at a Cleveland brewpub with Loung Ung, author of First They Killed My Father, the novel Jolie adapted into a 2017 film.

On my 18th birthday, I puked Zima into some shrubbery outside a hotel after my party got busted by the cops, but to each their own, I suppose.

How was your week? Dinner in Cleveland with the literati good or puke Zima into a hedge good?

Saturday Night Social: Hey, Do I Know You from Somewhere? Saturday Night Social: Hey, Do I Know You from Somewhere?

It happens to the best of us. We’re at a party hanging out, minding our business and probably searching for a pet to interact with while avoiding awkward social interaction when, bam, we’re brought face to face with someone who looks vaguely familiar, although we can’t quite pinpoint how we know them. Do you introduce yourself and risk the...
