Angelina Jolie and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt
In Maleficent, the adorable Jolie-Pitt got her big break because, well, no one else would do it. Jolie told Entertainment Weekly that Vivienne was the only child who wasn't scared of her: "We think it's fun for our kids to have cameos and join us on set, but not to be actors. That's not our goal for Brad and I at all. But the other 3- and 4-year-old [performers] wouldn't come near me. It had to be a child that liked me and wasn't afraid of my horns and my eyes and my claws. So it had to be Viv."
