The thriving artist has always demonstrated an interest in the arts. He also contributed to movies like ‘Without Blood’ and ‘First They Killed My Father’ which were directed by his mother. Pax helped with behind-the-scenes video for ‘Without Blood’, and took stills for ‘First They Killed My Father’, according to People.

When a film crew is at its best, it feels like a big family, so it felt natural,” the ‘Maleficent’ actress explained.

What did Pax say about his father, Brad Pitt?
Brad Pitt’s son Pax called his father a ‘world class a**hole’ who makes his four youngest children ‘tremble in fear’ in an explosive Instagram rant posted for Father’s Day 2020, DailyMail.com can reveal.
‘You have made the lives of those closest to me a constant hell,’ Pax wrote.
‘You may tell yourself and the world whatever you want,’ he added., ‘but the truth will come to light someday.
Then he sarcastically added: ‘So Happy Father’s Day, you f*****g awful human being.’
Pax posted the broadside at Pitt to the stories section of his private Instagram account when he was 16. He accompanied it with a photo of Brad receiving an Oscar for best-supporting actor for Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood four months earlier.
‘You time and time and again prove yourself to be a terrible and despicable person’, Pax added.
‘You have no consideration or empathy toward your four youngest children who tremble in fear when in your presence.
‘You will never understand the damage you have done to my family because you’re incapable of doing so.’
A source has confirmed the private account does belong to Pax. ‘It’s the account he uses for friends – friends from school mostly. He never says much about his parents, keeps himself to himself, so that was unusual.’
Pax did not say if there was a specific event that had set him off or whether it was a culmination of years of tension.
When Pitt, 59, and Jolie, 48, split in 2016 just two years after they had married in a private ceremony in France, the children stayed with their mother amid reports of an altercation aboard a private jet between eldest son Maddox and his father.
Now it is clear that the relationship between Pax and Pitt is also troubled with the 19-year-old accusing his dad of making his life ‘hell’ in the extraordinary social media rant.
Jolie and Pitt met on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2005 while he was still married to Jennifer Aniston. They insisted at the time that there was no infidelity but after a picture emerged of them on a beach in Kenya with Maddox, Aniston filed for divorce.
But their fairytale romance fell apart in 2016 and the couple once known as ‘Brangelina’ have been embroiled in acrimonious battles ever since.
Their divorce was finalized in 2019, and although Jolie initially had full custody of the children, an agreement was thrashed out in 2021 that allowed Pitt to have them 50 percent of the time.
