Here's What Maddox Jolie-Pitt Is Studying At School

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, otherwise known as "Brangelina," were one of Hollywood's most famous power couples. While their high-profile romance didn't last, the "Maleficent" and "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" stars remain the proud parents of six children — Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne, per Rolling Stone

According to Popsugar, the pair's oldest child Maddox Chivan Jolie-Pitt was born in 2001 in his native Cambodia. The following year, in 2002, Jolie adopted a 7-month old Maddox, three years before she began dating Pitt — who later became his adopted father. 

While Maddox was initially born with the name Rath Vibol, his then single-mom changed his name shortly after his adoption. As it turns out, Maddox has grown up to be just as brilliant and talented as his parents. When the eldest of the Jolie-Pitt's was just 16-years-old, he worked as an executive producer on the historical thriller "First They Killed My Father" alongside his mother (via IMDb), who co-wrote and directed the film, The Sun reported. Since then, the multi-talented twenty-something moved away from showbusiness and began attending university in South Korea.

Maddox Jolie-Pitt is studying more than one subject at college

In August 2019, Maddox Jolie-Pitt started his freshman year at Yonsei University in South Korea. According to The Sun, Maddox is not just studying one subject, but an impressive three. The eldest Jolie-Pitt is studying Biochemistry, Russian, and Korean — and Maddox also reportedly speaks five different languages.

"I'm so happy for him [Maddox has] grown up into such a good man," Angelina Jolie previously told Entertainment Tonight (via Closer Weekly). "I say that because he's smart and he's doing the work, but he's also wild. He's balanced in his teenage years," she added. 

While attending university is one of the biggest transitions for most teens, it can also be a big adjustment for parents. Angelina is living proof that even celebrities struggle to say goodbye when their children leave the nest. When the time came to say farewell to her eldest son, the actress disclosed to Entertainment Tonight that she "ugly cried" after dropping her son off in South Korea. "It was the one moment in my life I think I turned around six times before the airport just ... and he sweetly stayed and kept waving, knowing that I was going to keep turning around. You could feel he knew he couldn't leave," she revealed.
