Subscribe to Angelina Jolie alerts

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt became crew members on the set of the actress' new Disney film Maleficent as they attempted to get a great performance out of their daughter Vivienne.

The youngster was picked to play the young Princess Aurora in the adapted fairytale and mum and dad were on set the day the five year old made her big movie debut.

Jolie admits she and her fiance became stage parents for the day, telling U.S. news show Access Hollywood, "She was trying to catch the butterfly, which was a day that I wasn't working, so mummy and daddy had to be, like, the set parents, trying to get her to do everything.

"I was holding the stick with the blue thing on it and, like, kinda dancing and making her follow me and Brad was on the edge of the cliff, kinda singing and... trying to get her to dance into his arms.

"We were exhausted by the end of that day. It was so hard."
