It pays to be Hollywood royalty. A March 3 article reports that Angelina Jolie's kids are already pulling in a salary for work on their mom's next movie, "Maleficent," which is a twist on the "Sleeping Beauty" storyline. "Maleficent" is due to be released in 2014.
According to reports, four-year-old Vivienne Jolie-Pitt's role the film is as Young Princess Aurora. She's reportedly earning over $2,,800 a week for her role. Two of her older siblings, Pax and Zahara, are extras in the film, each earning a daily rate of around $180. "Maleficent" marks the big screen debut for these three Jolie-Pitt siblings.
Vivienne is the biological daughter of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Pax and Zahara both joined the Jolie-Pitt clan through international adoption. Pax was born in Vietnam; his adoption was completed before the Vietnam adoption program closed to adoptions from U.S. citizens. Recent news suggested that Vietnam adoptions may resume in the near future. Zahara was born in Ethiopia; her adoption was completed before the Ethiopia adoption program tightened its restrictions on adoptions being completed by single parents. Brad and Angelina have six children together:
- Maddox, adopted from Cambodia in 2002
- Zahara, adopted from Ethiopia in 2005
- Shiloh, their biological child, born in 2006
- Pax, adopted from Vietnam in 2007
- Knox and Vivienne, their biological twins, born in 2008
