Angelina Jolie's Daughter Vivienne Bags First Acting Role In Maleficent! We LOVE Mother-Daughter Combos

23 August 2012 by

It’s been revealed that one of the Jolie-Pitt clan is set to join her mom Angelina onscreen. After big sister Shiloh starred alongside dad Brad in the Oscar winning The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Vivienne will appear alongside Ange in a film entitled Maleficent, which is set to be released in 2014 is going to tell the tale of Sleeping Beauty from the point of view of the princess's evil nemesis. Promo pictures already released of Angelina as the wicked Maleficent look super scary.

Four year old Vivienne, twin sister of Knox, is set to play a young Princess Aurora in the film and although it’s only being described as a ‘minor role’ we're crossing our fingers this is only the beginning of a new mother-daughter combo in Hollywood.

Here’s five other mothers and daughters who have shared the big screen.

Judy Garland and Liza Minelli in In The Good Old Summertime
An absolutely adorable three-year-old Liza makes her film debut starring as real-life mum Judy Garland’s on-screen daughter in the film’s closing scenes.

Blythe Danner and Gwyneth Paltrow in Sylvia
Blythe Danner played daughter Gwyneth’s mother in this film featuring the actress as the tragic poet Sylvia Plath.

Jamie Lee Curtis and Janet Leigh in Halloween H20
Although not one of the finest films in the Halloween franchise, this film did give us a chance to see scream queen Jamie act alongside her famous mother Janet, star of Hitchcock’s Psycho.

Meryl Streep and Mamie Gummer in Heartburn
Now an actress in her own right with roles in The Big C and The Good Wife under her belt, Mamie’s first role came as the daughter of real-life mum Meryl in this Nora Ephron drama. Look how cute!

Susan Sarandon and Eva Amurri on Friends
In The One With Joey’s New Brain, mother and daughter duo Susan and Eva have guest roles as actresses on Days of Our Lives in an episode that sees Susan Sarandon’s brain transplanted into Joey’s head. That’s a thing, right?
