Angelina Jolie lands daughter in film role

Angelina Jolie is making her new movie Maleficent a family affair after landing a role for her daughter Vivienne, according to a new report.

The Oscar winner plays Sleeping Beauty's arch-enemy in the new adaptation of the classic tale, and has persuaded producers to use the four year old in the film.

Vivienne, whose father is Jolie's fiance Brad Pitt, will reportedly play the actress' onscreen daughter.

A source tells UK tabloid The Sun: "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."

Acting is firmly in the Jolie-Pitt genes, with Jolie the daughter of actors Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand.

Maleficent is due to be released in March 2014.
