Attention Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie: Chaz Bono would like a word with you

Chaz Bono on Shiloh Jolie Pitt

Little Shiloh Jolie Pitt has long made waves for her tomboy style, with some saying parents Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt should encourage her to be more girly (and us saying leave the kid alone, she's four). Now Chaz Bono says he would love to chat with Brad and Angie about their daughter -- just in case her penchant for boy's clothes turns out to be more than a mere fashion preference.

"I would love to talk to [Brad and Angelina] at some point," Bono, 42, told E! News. "To at least let them know we have this resource for them if they ever need it."

"People get too freaked out about kids and what to do with kids. If you just let kids do what they need to do they usually have the right idea."

Chaz used to be Chastity, the only child of Sonny Bono and Cher. His new book Transition: The Story of How I Became a Man details his journey into the body he believes he should have been born into in the first place.

So what about Shiloh? Maybe the kid just likes jeans and tees instead of fussy dresses. Maybe her big brothers are more fun to play with than her big sister. Maybe 15 years from now she too will have a big announcement to make on the cover of People magazine. Maybe, until then, we should just leave the kid alone so she can figure it out without the glare of the spotlight -- a luxury not given to Chaz Bono.
