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.
