Jolie and Brad Pitt’s daughter Vivienne was 4 years old during filming and is now 5 years old. She plays the young Princess Aurora in this version of Sleeping Beauty. The plot summary of Maleficent reads:
A vindictive fairy is driven to curse an infant princess only to realize the child may be the only one who can restore peace.
It looks like it will be very dark, but Angelina Jolie looks flawless as the classic villain Maleficent.

Angelina Jolie’s famous father Jon Voight says he’s excited and can’t wait to see how Vivienne has done on-screen in Maleficent .
It’s just like any grandchild. You’re going to be proud of her no matter what she did.
No matter what, though, Voight makes it clear that he doesn’t want to become a “stage grandpa.”

When Jolie was just 6 years old, she appeared opposite her father in the film Lookin’ to Get Out. Perhaps this role will do for Vivienne what it has done for Angelina.
5. Brad And Angelina Are Not Pushing Vivienne to Get Into Acting
— Angelina. (@xFakeJolie) September 14, 2013
In an interview with E! Online, Angelina Jolie talked about how she and Brad [Pitt] definitely aren’t pushing for daughter Vivienne to get into show business.
We think it’s fun for our kids to have cameos and join us on set, but not to be actors. That’s not our goal for Brad and I at all. She was 4 at the time, and other 3- and 4-year-old [actors] really wouldn’t come near me. Big kids thought I was cool—but little kids really didn’t like me. So in order to have a child that wants to play with [Maleficent]… it had to be a child that really liked me and wasn’t afraid of my horns and my eyes and my claws. So it had to be Viv.
