Angelina Jolie debuted a whole new look while stepping out to dinner with her son Pax, 20, at the celebrity hotspot, Sushi Park, in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
After grabbing a bite to eat at the $400-per-person strip mall sushi joint, the 48-year-old Oscar winner turned heads with her much lighter locks.
While the rest of her hair appeared to be a golden, honey-blonde hue, she opted to keep her roots dark and wore minimal makeup to showcase her natural beauty.
For the night out with her eldest, the actress, who recently wrapped shooting on her upcoming film Maria, in which she portrays iconic opera singer Maria Callas, wore an oversized sweater over a long white dress.

The mother-of-six accessorized her chic ensemble with a black leather purse, worn in the crook of her right elbow.
In addition to returning the screen this year with the highly-anticipated biopic, Maria, Jolie will be reprising her voice role as Master Tigress in the animated sequel Kung Fu Panda 4.
Her films, Every Note Played and Maleficent 3 as well as her spy thriller Maude V Maude, also starring Halle Berry, are all in pre-production, according to IMBD.
She’s also working on the Broadway-bound musical adaptation of The Outsiders, based on S.E. Hinton’s 1967 novel and Francis Ford Coppola’s 1983 movie.
Pax cut a casual figure in a white long sleeve, black beanie and matching pants.
She adopted Pax from an orphanage in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, in 2007. He was just three years old.
Her then-partner, Brad Pitt, formally adopted him the following year.
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, 22, and his father.
In 2020, Pax allegedly slammed Pitt in an explosive Instagram rant on Father’s Day.

‘You have made the lives of those closest to me a constant hell,’ Pax wrote.
In his post, Pax called his adoptive father ‘a world class a**hole’ adding: ‘You time and time and again prove yourself to be a terrible and despicable person
‘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.’
Although Pax was the third child – after brother Maddox and sister Zahara – that Jolie adopted, he is one year older than Zahara.
The four youngest children, who he claimed Pitt made tremble would be Zahara, now 18, and the couple’s three biological children, Shiloh, 17, and 15-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
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 per cent of the time.
But shortly afterwards, John Ouderkirk, the judge in charge of the case, was revealed to have a close business relationships with Pitt’s lawyers.
As a result, he was disqualified from the case and custody was returned to Jolie with Pitt allowed ‘custodial visits’ only.
Pitt was also investigated by the FBI and the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services over child abuse allegations following the alleged altercation with Maddox on a private jet five days before Jolie filed for divorce.
Maddox is said to have stood up for Jolie during a fight between his parents.
A source later told People, Pitt had been drunk at the time, adding: ‘There was an argument between him and Angelina.
‘There was a parent-child argument which was not handled in the right way and escalated more than it should have.’
Jolie told authorities Pitt had behaved ‘like a monster’ on the jet.

Pitt was subsequently cleared of all charges and has since quit both booze and smoking cannabis and was photographed attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings in September 2016.
Although neither Pitt nor Jolie have ever spoken publicly about the incident, Jolie told Vogue in 2021 that she had dumped Pitt for the ‘wellbeing’ of her family.
She added: ‘It was the right decision. I continue to focus on their healing. Some have taken advantage of my silence, and the children see lies about themselves in the media, but I remind them that they know their own truth and their own minds.
‘In fact, they are six very brave, very strong young people.’

The couple are still involved in a contentious $350 million battle over Chateau Miraval, the vineyard they bought in France. Jolie sold her half to a subsidiary of Stoli Group after the plane incident because, her lawyers said, she was ‘uncomfortable’ being involved in the sale of alcohol.
In a filing, this summer, she called her ex a ‘bully’ who acted emotionally, irrationally and ‘ultimately illegally’ over the vineyard. He accused her of staging ‘a hostile takeover of the business.’
Pax remains close to his mother and has been seen with her in New York where she has been staying while creating her new Atelier Jolie line.
Upon graduating from high school, he choose to skip the graduation ceremony to avoid paparazzi.
Earlier this year, it was reported that he had become an artist – creating work under the pseudonym ‘Embtto’ – but the Page Six story turned out to be a hoax.
