How ironic. First Angelina Jolie said she didn’t want her kids following in her footsteps as an actress. Now, it is reported they are doing just that!
According to a new report, the 38-year-old star booked her kids (Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, Knox) in the upcoming blockbuster Cleopatra, in which Jolie’s longtime partner, Brad Pitt, will also be starring in.
“Their whole family life is rooted in films but Brad and Ange didn’t want the children to follow in their footsteps. However, acting is in their genes, and it could turn out to be the start of something big for the next generation,” a movie insider says.

Vivienne, 6, has already starred in Maleficent as a young Aurora. If this is going to be her second film, she might be the next breakthrough child star for Jolie and Pitt.
“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,” the mother of six explained in a past interview.
In addition to Cleopatra being a family affair, it was just announced that the 50-year-old actor and Angelina will be starring together in the love story By the Sea. The film that Angelina wrote and will direct will be the next film she stars in with her hubby ever since 2005’s Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
