Oldest Jolie-Pitt hits go-karts for birthday

Maddox Jolie-Pitt seems to be taking right after his daredevil mom, Angelina Jolie: The 9-year-old celebrated his birthday by going go-karting with family and friends on Saturday.

A source told People that actress/pilot/stuntwoman Angelina, 35, and her partner Brad Pitt, 46, rented out Go Kart World in Carson, California, so that Maddox - who turned 9 on August 5 - could party in the park with brother Pax, 6; sisters Zahara, 5, and Shiloh, 4; and his pals.

Maddox and his guests spent the morning racing around the Mini Indy Track and chowing down on pizza and cake.

The kids had the best time, said the insider, adding that just like his Oscar-winning mom, the birthday boy nabbed an award. "Maddox even got a trophy at the end of the party for being such a good racer."

Although Maddox was showing off some choice behind-the-wheel skills, Jolie is glad he's still a few years out from getting a driver's license. "I'm not ready for them to driving, dating," the actress said. "I'm not ready for any of it."

But of course, every kid must grow up, and Jolie said she and Pitt plan "to just have a really, really great relationship with our children, so when they hit that time that they don’t want to talk to us, we've instilled some good values already."

    If they did it to shield them from photographers why are we looking at their pictures at the park?

    I cannot even see the persons, who are jolie-pitt, maybe even the little friends are hires as extras and get paid for it. Seriously speaking, doesn't ever anyone noticed how BP and Aj looks so different all them. Sometimes they don't look like themselves at, there is always something strange about their faces, that does not add up. Almost like changeable childs dolls.

    You don't have to be royalty to rent a go-kart park. I would do the same for my son if I have the money.

      People do this sort of thing all of the time for private parties. However, they usually invite guests.

      I rented a roller rink for my daughter's 12th birthday. She invited her entire class and they had a ball. What's the big deal?

      If you have the bucks and want to to keep the people who feed off of photos and such and hound the kids all day away, you rent the park. This couple puts more money towards improving the lives of people in need than most people make themselves, I would say they can spend some money to keep the kids happy and the photogs away. I'm sure if you had a camera on you and your family every minute you are out of the house, you would try to get some space like they did did for the party as well. GET A CLUE! Good for Jolie-Pitt

      Who do they think they are? Hmm, don't get the question. Why is it such a big deal to you? They have the money and want to keep their children shielded from crazed photogs. Shame on them. Seriously, who do they think they are?
