Angelina Jolie’s children want careers in “humanitarian affairs”.

The 44-year-old actress has Maddox, 18, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and 11-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with her ex-husband Brad Pitt, and has said that whilst she would love for one of her brood to pursue an acting career like their famous parents, they all have other career goals in mind.

When asked if there were ever talks of giving her kids cameos in her new Disney movie Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, she said: “I tried. Nobody was interested! None of my kids want to be actors. [They’re into] business, humanitarian affairs, things like that.”

Angelina’s youngest daughter Vivienne appeared in the 2014 original Maleficent movie as the young Aurora – who is played by Elle Fanning for the majority of the movie – and the actress says she had no intention of reprising the role.

She added to People magazine: “Vivienne still can’t believe I made her a princess. She likes her overalls, I can’t put her in a dress. So, she’s like, ‘How could you make me a princess?’ “
