Alfredo James Pacino is one of the best actors Hollywood has got. He has achieved everything he wanted in his career. but, when it comes to his personal life, he has been the victim of heartbreak multiple times. Al Pacino is dated many women during his time but never settled with anyone. It’s safe to say he at the age of 81 is still a bachelor.
One of his girlfriends is Beverly D’Angelo with whom he has welcomed fraternal twins Anton James and Olivia Pacino. Though the duo was unmarried, Al Pacino wanted Beverly to be the mother of his kids. Surprisingly, Beverly was on his side and decided to conceive the babies through IVF. Fortunately, everything went smoothly and they welcomed Anton James Pacino and Olivia Pacino on the 25th of January.
Though Beverly and Alfredo both are famous in the industry, they kept their children away from the limelight. Especially, their son Anton James Pacino lives a low-key life away from the spotlight. He has always been the closed chapter for many unlike his sister Olivia who keeps on sharing about her life on Instagram. So, here we dig deep into the life of Anton James Pacino.
Anton James Pacino‘s Childhood: How old is he?
The iconic Hollywood couple actor Al Pacino and actress Beverly D’Angelo welcomed their fraternal twins on January 25, 2001, in the United States of America. One of them is Anton James Pacino who can call him the only son of the iconic ex-couple. Anton grew up in the USA and was raised by his parents.
Not much is known about Anton James Pacino’s childhood. But, what we can predict is that his childhood must have been no less than that of a Prince as he was born into an affluent family. He must have enjoyed all sorts of basic facilities that a person would want as a kid. Just like his childhood background, his educational background is also under the bar. As of now he must have completed his primary school and must have enrolled himself at high school.
Anton’s Life Has been Impacted by his Parents’ Fame
Anton James has hogged the limelight being the son of the celebrity couple Al Pacino and Beverly D’Angelo. Alfredo James Pacino is one of the finest actors in Hollywood who took acting to a whole new level. He has showcased his talent in movies like The Panic in Needle Park, Scarecrow, Dog Day Afternoon, The Godfather: Part II and III, Frankie and Johnny, Glengarry Glen Ross, Donnie Brasco, The Devil’s Advocate, and the list goes on. Alfredo has also tried his hands-on direction. He has directed movies like Wilde Salome, and Chinese Coffee.
His mother Beverly Heather D’Angelo is an actress and has appeared in countless movies and television series. She is best known for portraying the role of Ellen Griswold in the series National Lampoon’s Vacation (1983-2015). She has appeared in the movies like Coal Miner’s Daughter, Hair, Aria, American History X, Sweet Temptation, The Simpsons, and so on.
The duo was involved in a romantic relationship in the year 1997. However, how the chemistry between the two sparkled is still a mystery. At that time, it has just passed two years of Beverly’s separation from her Italian Husband Don Lorenzo Salviati. The ex-couple was one of the most powerful couples in Hollywood at that time. The ex-pair never failed to amuse the world with their amazing chemistry. But, it may be quite surprising to know that they never said “I Do’ walking down the aisle.
Being the son of famous parents, Anton hasn’t been able to enjoy a normal childhood as cameras are always chasing him. As per Alfredo, it has been challenging for them to enjoy family moments because of his celebrity status. In an interview, he told:
“I haven’t been in a subway or grocery store in years. It’s hard for my children to go out publicly with me.”
His Arrival Changed Alfredo’s Perspectives Towards Life
Al Pacino has always been vocal about how much he loves his kids Olivia, Anton, and Julie. He then and again talks about them in various interviews. As such, in an interview with Guardian, he revealed how his way of looking at life and everything has changed since he went on the fatherhood journey. He said:
Before I had my three children, I’d walk around in my own head, not noticing anything. Acting used to be everything; now, thanks to them, it’s just a small part.
The Ugly Custody Battle By his Parents
Al Pacino and Beverly embraced parenthood by welcoming their fraternal twins Anton and Olivia into the world in 2001. They were enjoying parenthood until things started turning ugly between the couple. For the sake of their children, they tried to save their relationship but they couldn’t.
Unfortunately, just a couple of years after their newborn, they decided to end their relationship in 2003. Alfredo filed a case against Beverly for custody or visitation rights in Manhattan court. He also claimed that Beverly was using the kids as her cover making them hostages. On the other side of the story, Beverly accused Pacino of being a bad father and of harassment. After lots of legal battles, they decided to share the mutual custody of their children.
Anton is often spotted with his father and sister Olivia in various award ceremonies and other Hollywood events.
His Siblings: Olivia Pacino, Julie Marie Pacino and Roman Pacino
Pacino has a twin sister named Olivia Pacino. Like her brother Anton, she is living a life away from the limelight. She is sometimes seen spending time with her parents around Beverly Hills but there’s no information about what she is doing now.
Likewise, Anton has also a half-sister named Julie Marie Pacino. She happens to be the eldest daughter of Alfredo James Pacino. Following the footsteps of her parents Alfred and mother Jan Tarrant, she has also stepped into Hollywood. Julie is a film producer and director known for the movies Tura and Billy Bates, and Blueprints: The Story of Mike.
Anton became a big brother to his youngest half-brother Roman Pacino. His father Pacino and his girlfriend Noor Alfallah welcomed their first child on June 2023. Pacino and Noor were in a relationship for more than a year now. Anton shares a good bonding with Noor and they are often spotted spending good times together.
The Pacino siblings are often spotted together attending various Hollywood events along with their father Alfredo. Olivia often shares the moments captured in pictures in her Instagram posts.
His Mother Beverly Talks about Parenting Him
D’ Angelo gave birth to Anton and his twin sister at the age of 49 years and she has no regrets about it. In an interview with Closer Weekly, she opened up about her mother’s journey as:
“I got pregnant at 48, delivered six weeks after I was 49, and by 51 I was looking at the landscape as a single parent.”
When she gave birth to her twins, she wasn’t married to Al Pacino. In fact, they were never married. Beverly D’Angelo revealed that she always had a fantasy to experience motherhood in a family. But, unfortunately, she wasn’t lucky. She told:
“I had a fantasy that when you have kids, you do it in a family setting. After we’d known each other for three months. Al looked me in the eyes and said I want you to be the mother of my children. That’s all I had to hear.”
It’s not uncommon for celeb kids to refrain from the spotlight. However, Al Pacino’s boy is a ghost when it to social media platforms. There hasn’t been a single tweet or Insta post through his name over the years. He’s probably a different name that we can’t get through or he’s just very private about his things.
Amidst all the nepotism drama these days, media attention towards him has been relatively subdued. He hardly makes any red-carpet appearance with his parents. Nevertheless, fans are learning about him through the posts shared by his parents Alfredo and Beverly D’Angelo.
Will Anton make Choose Hollywood as his Career?
With the Hollywood Jury divided between pro-nepotism and pro-talent these days, the question about Anton making his debut does come into the fold. The world wants to know whether the 22-year-old will pursue his career in the same field paved by his celebrity parents or will grow up as an adult who would hesitate to face the camera.
It’s quite unclear if Anton has plans for stepping into a different industry. But if he is even half as talented as his father, we would definitely love him on the big screen.
