Angelina's New Co-star Is her 4-Year-Old, and 7 Other Celebrity Parent and Child Movies

It didn't take very long for the Pitt-Jolie power couple to find a way to work their highly visible family into their business of show. Little Vivienne, twin to brother Knox, is only four years old but will be appearing alongside mom in the upcoming Disney movie Maleficent. The movie, which is an alternate take on the Sleeping Beauty tale, will feature Vivienne as the young Aurora.

According to the Christian Science Monitor:

Jolie and Pitt have long said they would support their children should the tots want to go into show business one day. Asked at last year's "Tree of Life" premiere if his kids would go into acting, Pitt told The Times and other red carpet media: "I just want them to follow their bliss. Whatever makes them happy."

It is not much of a shocker that the actress would have no problem letting her little one in movies. Jolie acted alongside her father, Jon Voight, in the movie Lookin' to Get Out and she was around seven years old. Having a legendary parent is always a good way to break into the biz. As many times as you have heard an actor or actress with a famous last name say, "I used a fake name to get the part," we all know that is a load of crap (I am talking to you, Tori Spelling).

Whether you get a part because of your parents or not, for an audience member it is always an "awww" moment when a parent and child show up in a movie together.
