Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s children cast in her movie

Angelina Jolie with Brad Pitt and their children Three of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's six children have landed parts in their mother's new movie. The couple's son Pax, eight, and daughter Zahara, seven, have reportedly been signed up to appear in their first movie, Maleficent, alongside Angelina, 37, and their four-year-old sister Vivienne Jolie-Pitt. A source told Usmagazine.com: "They have smaller parts." Their eldest daughter Shiloh, who previously appeared alongside Brad in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, turned down an opportunity to be in the new Disney film. The source revealed: "Shiloh was supposed to be in it, too, but she was bored and not in the mood during the day her part was supposed to happen, so she ended up not being in the film." News that the children will appear in the fairy tale comes just two months after a spokesperson for the couple confirmed their youngest daughter Vivienne would play a younger version of Elle Fanning's character, Princess Aurora, in the live-action film. The children will appear in the christening scene when a curse is placed upon the child. Filming for the movie began in London and Angelina previously said her children were "very happy" she was appearing in it.

    That’s awesome, if you believe in nepotism. Just for the record, I for one don’t.

    Haha! Nice Andrea! And agreed.

    I wouldn’t go so far as to call it nepotism. It’s not like they are appointing them as CEOs of a company or something. If they have the opportunity, go for it.

    Can anyone spell nepotism?

    So many actors say they would ‘never’ let their kids get into the biz. suddenly their kid wants to sing or act and they allow it. Ridiculas.

    I guess if her company is funding the movie she can hire whomever shes pleases.

    Wendy Disney is funding the movie.Angelina doesn’t have a company.

    Is this a surprise to anyone? They’ve practically been raising this legion of children for the last few years, you got to expect them to use them some how…

    When did Brad and Angelina say that Clown-dub?

  10. Hoatru • October 25, 2012 @ 6:24 PM

    I do agree with everybody else above me!!!!!!!

  11. Victoria • October 25, 2012 @ 6:47 PM

    I DO NOT agree… Why shouldn’t their children act if they want to? I really wanted one of my kids to choose to be an actor but they chose different paths, in the end it really is up to the kids and what they want to do and let’s not forget that they have been watching their parents act all of their lives it would be a surprise if at least one of their kids didn;t follow in their footsteps. BTW… why is it any issue anyway – no one comments negatively when there is an entire family of police or firefighters, so why the double standard just because of their parents or the career is in acting?

    Victoria, you hit the nail on the head! People making the snotty remarks before you sound envious to me, maybe because they or their own kids cannot be in movies.

  13. Julie • October 25, 2012 @ 10:45 PM

    Good for them, another way to save on production costs (paying for actors) … talent likely runs in the family … they are both fabulous actors … should be interesting … usually pleasantly surprised by their performances.

  14. Lou • October 27, 2012 @ 2:26 PM

    This is not an issue. If the kids want to be in the movie they should be in on merit. And yet the studio cast them, whether out of deference to power couple or not.
    And this is happening all over with American Idol and other “let’s skip the rad work and auditions part of the business” shows.
    I am not crazy about it but a kid won’t take away MY roles. If they start casting their parents (Jon Voight?) and siblings, I might have a problem with that.

    Agree David…
