Upon noticing that adoption hobbyists Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie appear to have been afflicted with an acute case of wanderlust, a concerned Page Six contacted "psychotherapist/social worker Puja Hall" for her expert thoughts on how their failure to plant firm roots could lead to developmental problems for their pancultural brood:
So far, the Jolie-Pitt clan has lived in New Orleans, Paris, Namibia, Berlin and, most recently, New York, where Maddox attended the prestigious Lycée Francais for just six weeks. Now they're in L.A., where Jolie is shooting "The Changeling." Pitt and Jolie are rumored to have enrolled at least one of the kids at Universal Studio's child-care center.
"With the moves, the kids just don't invest in relationships, because they're going to lose them anyway," Hall told Page Six's Marianne Garvey. "They think: 'Why bother? I'm not gonna stick around. We're gonna pick up and go, and the loss of friends is painful.'"
Sadly, Maddox has already begun to show signs of alienation and ennui, having been recently approached by a Lycée Francais classmate in the academy's leather-walled supper club, and, asked if he'd liked to swap a foie gras mousse appetizer for a plate of duck carpaccio with quince gelee, simply stared off at the Delacroix painting hanging over the fireplace and sighed, "What does it even matter, Rocco? Either one of us might be on the next flight overseas tomorrow."
