Renowned actress Angelina Jolie has taken an important step by casting her 15-year-old daughter, Vivienne, in her new Broadway theater project. The teenager will play a role as an assistant in the musical adaptation of the film 'The Outsiders', a decision that has surprised many and generated interest in the entertainment world.
Angelina Jolie, who shares six children with fellow actor Brad Pitt, has chosen to involve Vivienne in the world of film and theater production. Although the young woman has grown up in an environment surrounded by the film industry, her interest seems to be more inclined towards the creative aspect behind the cameras.
The actress described her daughter as "very thoughtful and serious about the theater" and highlighted her focus on supporting other creatives rather than seeking the spotlight. Jolie shared her impressions in a statement to Entertainment Tonight, where she expressed her confidence in Vivienne's ability to contribute meaningfully to the project.
Jolie's connection to the theater has been reinvigorated thanks to her daughter. The film 'The Outsiders,' released in 1983, wowed both during a visit to the La Jolla Playhouse in California earlier this year. The impact of the musical on Vivienne inspired Jolie to take the story to Broadway, thus opening the door for her daughter to play an active role in the process.
"I studied at the Lee Strasberg Institute where I realized my first love as a performer was theater. I hadn't found my way back until now. I look forward to contributing as I continue to learn from this amazing team I've been working with ever since my daughter took me to see the show at the La Jolla Playhouse," Jolie said of her excitement about the project and the opportunity to collaborate with her daughter on this new theatrical path.
