The Rather Humerous Reason Vivienne Jolie-Pitt Got Cast in Maleficent

By now it’s pretty much common knowledge (at least among Jolie-Pitt fans) that Vivienne Jolie-Pitt will appear in her mother’s new film, Maleficent, as the child version of Princess Aurora. However, aside from her proud father Brad calling her a “natural” when it comes to acting, we didn’t know HOW she landed her first film role (other than the fact that her mother happens to be the star, of course!)…until now. This past Saturday, August 10th, Angelina appeared at Disney’s D23 Expo to discuss her latest project. And, lucky for us, one of the things she discussed was how her youngest daughter came to be little Aurora. Click “more” for what she said!

It also has me more anxious than ever to see Vivi (along with her older siblings Pax and Zahara, who have walk-on roles in the movie) on the big screen! I’m sure you feel the same way, so here’s an adorable recent picture of mother and daughter to help tide us all over:
