Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, age 4, will make her film debut with her mom in ‘Maleficent’

Vivienne Jolie-Pitt is going to be a star!! For real. Vivienne J-P, who is just 4 years old, has just been cast in her mom’s movie, Maleficent. This is not the first time a Jolie-Pitt child has worked with one of their parents – when Shiloh was just a baby, she had a small part in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. But you know what’s really sad? No one every tries to give Fax Cannes Jolie-Pitt any movie roles! Tragic. The Forgotten Jolie-Pitt.

Vivienne Jolie-Pitt is ready for her closeup!

The globetrotting tot will make her feature film debut opposite her Academy Award winning mom, Angelina Jolie, in Maleficent, a rep for Walt Disney Studios confirmed to Us Weekly August 22.

Knox’s 4-year-old twin sister will play the child version of Elle Fanning’s Princess Aurora in the live-action movie, a reimagining of the fairy tale Sleeping Beauty, told from the villainess’ perspective.

“It’s a really great script, and I’m having a lot of fun. I’ve already got my horns fitted,” Jolie told Entertainment Weekly of her titular role in March. “My kids are very happy.”

Jolie’s twins were spotted visiting her on set in Buckginhamshire, England, in late June. She and fiance Brad Pitt, 48, are also parents to Maddox, 11, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, and Shiloh, 6.

Like Jolie, Vivienne is breaking into showbiz at an early age. Jolie appeared onscreen for the first time at age 6 in the 1982 film Lookin’ to Get Out. Her father, Jon Voight, 73, starred and co-wrote the movie. But Vivienne isn’t the first Jolie-Pitt child to appear on the silver screen: A young Shiloh had a brief role in Pitt’s 2008 film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Other cast members in Maleficent include Juno Temple, Sam Riley, Brenton Thwaites, India Eisley, Miranda Richardson and Kenneth Cranham. The film is slated for a March 2014 release.

This is lovely, and I think Vivienne totally looks like a child version of Elle Fanning too. I wonder if the other Jolie-Pitt kids get jealous? You know a film role would fit right into Empress Zahara’s world domination plot. Surely one of her parents could get Z a juicy role? Anyway, as for this part – I can’t imagine it’s some stage-mother situation, or that Vivienne’s part is very big. It’s probably just some cool little thing that she can do with her mom.

Incidentally, I recently read this cool little quote from Sam Riley, who was discussing working with Angelina on Maleficent. Riley said, “She’s approachable but she has an aura of a star, certainly, you want to bow when she comes on set. I do in my character. She’s very nice, I know everyone says that about their colleagues but she’s very cool.” Sweet.

    She really does seems like a little star -diva- but now Empress Z should have a role too! Obey!

  2. JY says:

  3. marie says:

  4. casey says:

    awww.i can’t wait to see little viv.she is really a princess.

  5. brin says:

    Adorbs…hope Knox is taking it well.

  6. lower-case deb says:

    the twins holding hands, must be my favorite pic ever, of the twins.

    the one thing i’m always amazed by the jp kids are how well-behaved they appear when they get papped. sure, they sometimes look sullen or irritated, but most of the times they look very approachable like any other kid.

    and yeah, poor fax cannes. not even used to screen test or stunt doubling for the favored kids.

    • tripmom says:

      I know! Look at her strutting her stuff in her stylish little trench coat! She’s so self-possessed and adorable.

  7. Bite me aka aniston says:

    Nice , hope she has lines so that she can get her sag card

  8. Marianne says:

    It’s probably just a little scene. I bet for a “flashback” of some sorts. It’s probably not even a speaking role.

  9. SJE says:

    I wonder if Vivi will have lines in the movie, I would like to hear her voice!

    • T.C. says:

      I think from the Disney movie the young Princess is at the birthday where she gets cursed but no lines. She pricks her finger on the spinning wheel later then goes to sleep. That’s all Viv gets. O.K. Maybe she can get an “ouch” line in there. :D

      • Rhea says:

        Yeah, she’ll probably get a “blink and you’ll miss it” part. :) Still, I’m sure she would love to dress up as a princess. Such a girly-girl. Too bad they don’t have the part where they need a little boy. Knox might get it. ;)

  10. Nev says:

    Queen Zahara!!!

  11. casey says:

    Im sure aniston didn’t sleep last night about this news.Since she always want to keep up with Brangelina.She doesn’t want to be outdone.But since she doesn’t have kids, the next headline will be;
    “little puppy(don’t know her dog’s name)to have a minor role in mom Jennifer Aniston movie and dad justine is so excited”lol.

    • MoxyLady007 says:

      Come on! There is no reason to keep this hatred and anger alive. Let’s just focus on the little cutie pie and how fun it would be to be in a movie with your mama.

      • diana says:

        Moxy, I agree. When there is such cuteness in this thread, I don’t understand why someone should bring unnecessary stuff. As a Brange fan I find it degrading.

    • Kim says:

      Gosh give it a rest.I wonder if the director noticed Vivienne favors Elle.Funny I just learned Elle was Brad’s daughter in Babel.I knew she was in CCOBB as young Daisy with Brad.Ooh I cant believe Olivia hasn’t made negative comment yet.I guess her google alerts dont include the kids just Brad and Angie LOL

      • Bite me aka aniston says:

        Olivia did, but it got deleted Even for her it was pretty offensive

      • UNF Joan Jett! says:

        Oh no, I missed out Olivia? Dammit! Life has lost its meaning.

      • Janet says:

        @bite me: Glad I missed it. My day was stressful enough to begin with. I just got back from vacation and I’m playing catch-up at the office. Ugh.

      • Sal says:

        Knowing Olivia and her fellow group of Jenloons, probably something very racist. And/or a death threat to the child. With ‘Team Aniston’, not even innocent small children are exempt from their artilery. Colateral damage. Says everything there is about Jennifer Aniston that that is the sort of scum she attracts.

  12. Eleonor says:

    It’s obvious the Empress is generous: she doesn’t act with mum, because she doesn’t want to outshine Angie.

  13. Sway says:

    Vivienne has her mother’s smile :) Gorgeous kid.

  14. trina says:

    Why does everyone make a big deal out of Maddox not being seen? I have a son his age, and at that age (11-12), they want to spend more time independently and with their friends. He’s probably staying at a friend’s house. I’m sure he has no interest in going to a movie set every day.

  15. AnnieGrey says:

    Knox will end up looking like Michael Pitt. (I know they’re not related.)

    Z-don’t pick your teeth with an earring. lol

  16. Nessa says:

    Those JP kids are all so cute.

  17. diana says:

    I’m such a lazy ass but one thing that is sure to get me to theatre on the opening day:
    Brange in the same movie!!!
    And a couple of their kids thrown in (might be Z and Knox’s turn next)

  18. Toot says:

    Vivienne is very cute. She probably thinks is great to be able to play a princess.

  19. tracking says:

    Cutie patootie. Hopefully Zahara will get her turn next!

  20. moolah says:

    viv will look like lara stone when she grows up.

  21. mln76 says:

    She seems perfect for this! But the Empress must be next!

    • Rhea says:

      Yup! She would rule!!! :D

    • berry says:

      Maybe they should completely rewrite that world war z movie so that Empress Z can be in it, poppa pitt would be trying to save the world and his daughter from herself. it could be called World War Z – THE SIDE EYE OF DOOM!

  22. Kim says:

    I think she favors Reese’s daughter Ava also.I hear Reese is in the hospital about to give birth

  23. lucy2 says:

    I can see a resemblance to Elle Fanning.

    I turned the TV on this morning and it was the Today show mentioning this, and Savannah pronounced it “Mal-efficient”. Durh.

  24. anon says:

    Such a pleasant post. Vivienne is a cutie. I like seeing the JP family,
    thanks CB :-)

  25. jm says:

    I have say I feel special – I just bought the purse Angelina is carrying in the last picture :)

    she seems to be the effervescent one out of the bunch.

    still hard to believe Angie birthed those twins outta that petite frame. yikes!

    8O

  29. KellyinSeattle says:

    I love the super six….I wish they could star in a new brady bunch when they get a bit older, but I know that won’t happen! I think A and B , from what I can see, blance their careers and their family quite well, for being super famous!

  30. lisa2 says:

    remember when they were in Italy.. can’t remember who.. but Kaiser or CB was sure Viv was a big crier..

    Well I think that time has passed and she has come into her own..

    Such a cutie..

    I miss seeing the family. Can’t help it. And it has been MONTHS. Well I guess they have found a way to have a lot of privacy in London.

    • Kim says:

      I know they have been in London since May and we have only seen the kids once when visiting Angie on set, well we saw the twins, Pax and Shiloh.

  31. Emma says:

    I think this is sweet. It’s probably not a role much more than a cameo and she gets to play a princess for a day with her mom. Cute!

  32. Moby says:

    A role fit for a Princess bless her

  33. Reece says:

    Those kids all of them are so damn cute! It’s ridic! Maybe the other kids don’t want to be in the industry. Nothing wrong with that. I’d encourage it actually if I were Brad & Angelina.

  34. F5 says:

    I don’t wish showbiz on kids but Knox should be in front of the cameras some day. That kid is gorgeous. Great genes:) All of their kids are adorable. Wish they weren’t dressed like refugees. C’mon, Jolie, dress them like they’re not homeless for once.

    • Janet says:

      She dresses then sensibly in clothes they can play hard in. What do you expect her to do, dress them in $500 outfits?

  35. Greta says:

    FS, Angie is a laid back mom for sure, letting her kids wear what they want. Although, she does make sure they get bundled up when the weather is bad. And kudos to the parents for keeping their kids out of ‘paps’ way! One thing about the 3 bio kids, each one made us wonder, when younger, if they were ‘slow’. And then they bloom into vivacious, normal looking kids! I have got to say, Angie must be a loving mother in private because her kids look quite comfy with her…and she must have some great nannies, too.

  36. Isabella Notarfrancesco says:

    Nepotism: is favortism granted to relatives regardless of merit. Just sayin.

    • samira25 says:

      You do realize that this is probably a non-speaking, blink and you miss it role? She’s not even getting a supporting role. Come down. This role isn’t some big break.

    • Sal says:

      Wow, just, WOW Isabella Notafrancesco. Issues, much?

  37. Contrived says:

    saw that pic on the home page of viv laughing…OMG…she has the same look as Angie when she laughs, that’s just too cute. You can almost hear the giggle in that photo…too caauuuute!

  38. Janet says:

    Those are some really adorable kids.

  39. Meadowlark says:

    That big smile picture warms my heart! Eeeep!!

  40. Mairead says:

    She is so adorable- a mini-Angie

  41. Francesca says:

    Angelina please eat a sandwich. Or two or three.

  42. april says:

    I love the 2nd photo of her. She looks like a star in that photo. Stardust is in her eyes. She is a darling girl.

  43. Claire says:

    Someone further up said the kids always looked messily dressed. I have never seen that – pretty cute clothes and look like normal children

  44. Moreaces says:

    Viv has a winning Smile

  45. She has such beautiful children. And I think it’s awesome that Vivienne gets to be in the film.

  46. Sakyiwaa says:

    Viv is so cute :-) hurray on her cameo :-)

  47. Sakyiwaa says:

    Zee will get her shot. Im sure of it :-)

  48. skuddles says:

    Such happy, beautiful kids :)
