Aww! Like mother, like daughter.
Little Vivienne Jolie-Pitt is following in the footsteps of her big screen beauty mom, Angelina Jolie, in a new photo released from Disney’s upcoming “Maleficent.”
In the vivid shot, 5-year-old Vivienne (who was 4 at the time of filming) is seen as a young Princess Aurora, wearing a pale yellow dress as she gazes up at her mom, clad in her “Mistress of All Evil” garb.
During an appearance at Disney’s D23 Expo back in August, Angelina said her daughter was the only child unfazed by the evil character while filming.
“The strange thing was, people with little kids would visit set, and I would think, ‘Oh, I am a Disney character,’ so I would go over to the children, and say, ‘Hi there,’” the 38-year-old star said at the time. “And they would scream and run off!
“One little kid even said, ‘Mommy, please tell the mean witch stop talking to me!’” she added, laughing. “Vivienne was the only 4-year-old who didn’t scream when she saw me.”
“Maleficent” is set to hit theaters on July 2.
