Knox Leon Jolie-Pitt is one of the children of popular actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. As the son of two high-profile film stars, he is growing up in the spotlight and attracts media attention wherever he goes. Till date, Knox has accompanied his parents to several international destinations like France, England, and Cambodia.

He is very close to his twin sister as well as his other siblings. He is being home-schooled and takes part in several co-curricular activities alongside his siblings.
