Angelina Jolie Is Now Her Daughter’s Boss After Hiring the 15-Year-Old as a Producer

Angelina Jolie is turning her next project into a family affair.

The Eternals star, 48, will serve as a producer on the upcoming Broadway adaptation of The Outsiders, which is based on the namesake novel by S.E. Hinton. And according to E! News, Angelina has hired her 15-year-old daughter, Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, to work alongside her on the musical as a volunteer producer.

In a statement, Angelina revealed that Vivienne is taking after her late grandmother, Marcheline Bertrand. “Viv reminds me of my mother in that she isn’t focused on being the center of attention but in being a support to other creatives,” the actress told E! News. “She’s very thoughtful and serious about theatre and working hard to best understand how to contribute.”

The Outsiders is a coming-of-age story about two groups—the Greasers and the Socs—and how they’re divided by socioeconomic status. An insider told the outlet that Angelina is putting her heart and soul into the Broadway production.

“Angelina is excited about this new venture,” the source said. “She believes this is a musical for all ages, but particularly resonates with young people. So, she wants to ensure the team is listening and working with young people every step of the way, and that their voices are leading in bringing this production to life on Broadway.”

Angelina shares six children with her ex-husband, Brad Pitt. This includes Maddox (22), Pax (19), Zahara (18), Shiloh (17), Knox (15) and, of course, Vivienne (15).

One thing’s for sure: Good genes run in the family.
