Angelina Jolie's Daughter Vivienne Lands A Role In Mum's New Movie

Angelina's daughter Vivienne lands a role in her new movie PA

She's just four-years-old, but Angelina's youngest daughter Vivienne is preparing to make her movie debut, playing the beautiful Princess Aurora in the new version of Sleeping Beauty.

According to The Sun, Vivienne Jolie-Pitt will play the young princess who is cursed by the evil sorceress Maleficent, played by Angelina, in the big screen remake of the classic fairytale.

The film, which is currently filming in Buckinghamshire, is an updated version of the 1959 animated film Sleeping Beauty.

This new film focuses on the events that made Maleficent so hard-hearted, leading her to curse the infant princess just because she wasn't invited to her christening.

The famous curse promised that she would prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die before the end of her 16th birthday - but, of course, we all know how the story ends.

A source told The Sun that Angelina persuaded film bosses to sign her daughter for the role because she thought she would be perfect for the part.

The source said: "Ange thought it would be a fun experience for her and Viv to share, and Viv is a natural. The other kids are now nagging Ange and Brad to land them roles."
