The first still from Maleficent that features Angelina Jolie as the titular Sleeping Beauty villain and her daughter with Brad Pitt, Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, has come online!
Jolie-Pitt stars as the younger version of the Elle Fanning character, who we all know will spend some time sleeping during the film, thanks to Jolie's Maleficent.
We saw a hint of Jolie-Pitt in the Maleficent trailer and it is fantastic to see the mother-daughter tandem in a still all their own. It must be a nice moment in the Jolie-Pitt household… that and that Oscar Brad just won for 12 Years a Slave winning Best Picture!
The photo appeared in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly and if anyone thinks that Vivienne got the job because of who her mother is… well, that’s kind of not quite right, but it is right in a way. Let’s let Jolie tell it…
“The other three and four-year-old [performers] wouldn’t come near me. It had to be a child that liked me and wasn’t afraid of my horns and my eyes and my claws. So it had to be Viv," Jolie admitted.
And some of Jolie’s other children were scared of their mum!
"When Pax saw me for the first time, he ran away and got upset -- and I thought he was kidding, so I was pretending to chase him until I actually found him crying. I had to take off pieces [of the makeup] in front of him to show him it was all fake and not freak out so much."
Maleficent opens in theaters May 30.
