At the age of four Vivienne Jolie-Pitt already has Hollywood knocking on her door. Well, sort of.
The daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt will have a part in Angie's new movie "Maleficent," a reworking of the tale of Sleeping Beauty, after the studios received some persuasion by Angie. Vivienne will star in the role of Princess Aurora, Angie's daughter in the film.
"Angie thought it would be a fun experience for her and Viv to share and Viv is a natural," a source said.
Ah, to be the kid of a famous movie star. Is it too early for Vivienne to be on the big screen? Several other children of famous actors have taken to the silver screen. Let's take a look at other celeb kids with on screen cameos.
Jaden Smith - "The Pursuit of Happyness"
In 2006 Jaden followed in his dad Will Smith's footprints and gave a great performance playing Will's son in "The Pursuit of Happyness." The film about a dad's struggle with homelessness for a year while trying to succeed resonated with fans not only for the true story behind the film but also because of Will and Jaden's great portrayal of the father and son.
Maude and Iris Apatow - "Knocked Up"
"Knocked Up" made actors like Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd household names after their hilarious film garnered major success. While these two proved their status as Hollywood funny men director Judd Apatow was busy giving his daughters Maude and Iris a chance to star in his movie along with their real life mom, Leslie Mann.
Leslie and Paul coupled up in the film while the girls played the part of their children. The girls have some hilarious scenes proving comedy may quite possibly run in their genes.
Connor Cruise -"Seven Pounds"
The adopted son of Tom Cruise, Connor, showed off his acting chops in the 2008 film "Seven Pounds" starring Will Smith. Will needed an older child actor to play the part of young Ben and who else better to pick for the role than the child of another major Hollywood actor?
Connor got the part and he enjoyed his time acting so much he's been working on other projects, including an end of 2012 movie entitled "Red Dawn."
