Is Angelina Jolie preparing her son Maddox Jolie-Pitt for a career in Hollywood? That might be the case as Angelina recently admitted that Maddox helped her develop her new film, “First They Killed My Father.” Angelina is currently promoting the film with her entire family in Maddox’s native Cambodia.
Angelina revealed that Maddox did the still photography for the film. He also helped with the production while his brother Pax helped with shooting stills. And it looks like the Hollywood actress had to do some convincing before Maddox agreed to help her with the film. Angelina told Good Morning America, “I talked to Maddox about this film and doing it, and it was him in the final hour that said he was ready and that he wanted to understand more. He wanted me to make it.”
It’s not surprising that Maddox Jolie-Pitt was reluctant to work on the film with his mother. After all, he is a teenager who would rather do anything but work with his parents. Then again, this isn’t the first time one of Angelina’s kids has worked with her on one of her films. Her daughter Vivienne had a role in Angelina’s 2014 blockbuster hit, “Maleficent.” She played the child version of Aurora in the film. Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and Knox all had cameos in 2016’s ‘Kung Fu Panda 3.’ Plus, both Maddox and Pax also filmed a few scenes for Brad Pitt’s movie, ‘World War Z’ back in 2013. Maddox also gained experience working as a crewmember during Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s 2015 film, ‘By the Sea.’
Of course, no one would be surprised if Maddox Jolie-Pitt managed to land more work in future films as well. The Jolie-Pitt kids are used to traveling all over the world and visiting Angelina and Brad’s film sets. In fact, Angelina was criticized for making her children travel with her across the globe rather than send them to school with other kids their age. They’ve never had set schedules or daily routines. Instead, they’ve been growing up watching their parents work on film sets.
