Angelina Jolie reveals that her daughter, Vivienne, is upset when she found out that she was part of the first Disney "Maleficent" movie. She was only four then and did not know what her mother was getting her into. Jolie also did not know how this would affect her daughter.
Now that Viv is 11, she has finally spoken up about how that experience made her feel.
Jolie said that Viv was upset at for putting her in the film where she played the young princess at four. "She told me that it was going to take a while before that experience was going to live one down," Jolie shared.
Put simply, their kids do not want, in any way, to become actors.
Angelina said she wanted her kids to know what she and their father do for a living. They have the choice of whether to take part in it or not. It doesn't have to be a part of their lives.
Not one of their six children plans to take after the footsteps of their famous, celebrity parents. Angelina Jolie revealed that their children want to stay as far away from the spotlight as they could. Their career choice -- Brad and Angelina -- does not look inspiring for their children.
Most Challenging Role
The actress, who doesn't look 44 at all, is a mother to six amazing children -- Maddox (18), Pax (15), Zahara (14), Shiloh (13), and Twins Knox and Vivienne (11).
During the press conference for the release of "Maleficent: Mistress of Evil," the actress revealed that her children do not give much importance to the fame that comes with having celebrity parents. She said that none of her six children would want to be in movies.
All this news about Viv being upset led Angelina to speak of her experience as a single mother. She admitted that it has been, by far, the most challenging role she has played in her life -- noting that the judgment and oppression from the public are not helping.
Jolie shared she has been under a lot of pressure to become the perfect mom.
In an interview with The Sun at the premiere of her newest Disney Maleficent movie, Jolie said her role as a mother is not easy at all. She added that most mothers worry about whether they are doing a good job or not, herself included.
So when Viv told her about how she felt about being cast in the first "Maleficent" movie, Jolie revealed she got upset too. She didn't think it would have such an impact on her child.
At one point, she felt guilty. However, as a mother, Angelina knew she had to understand.
Jolie likened her feelings to that of Maleficent in her new movie. She talked about how her character, Maleficent, was worried about whether she's being a good enough mom.
Maleficent, in her mind, had an idea of what it means to be a good mom. Everyone thinks that to be a perfect mom, a woman needs to be the perfect person first.
"Now, I know that's not true," Jolie added.
Instead, she said that she learned from this experience with Viv. Now, to be a good mom, one needs to be willing to put their child first before themselves. The actress said that Maleficent loves being a mother, and so does she.
Jolie remains hopeful that Vivienne would eventually move past the feeling and find in her heart to forgive her mother.
