Angelina Jolie - Angelina Jolie: Shiloh would never play a princess
Angelina Jolie's daughter Shiloh found the idea of playing a princess in 'Maleficent' ''very funny''.
Angelina Jolie ''knew'' her daughter Shiloh would turn down a role in 'Maleficent'.
The actress initially offered the part of young Aurora to the seven-year-old tomboy, but the youngster thought the idea of playing a princess was ''very funny'', so it went to her five-year-old sister Vivienne instead.
Angelina said: ''We knew she would [say no]. We mentioned the idea of playing a princess and she obviously thought it was very funny. She's not that kind of girl.''
Angelina - who also raises sons Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, and Vivienne's twin Knox, as well as daughter Zahara, nine, with fiance Brad Pitt - was delighted at how easily her youngest girl adjusted to being on camera.
She told 'Access Hollywood': ''That's just Vivienne. We call her my shadow. She's a very... she's wonderfully affectionate, very much a mommy's girl and so it was a natural fit. It was very easy and very fun to do.''
Meanwhile, Angelina's co-star Sam Riley has revealed his 90-year-old grandfather is one of the actress' biggest fans.
He told E! News: ''It was my grandfather's 90th birthday while we were shooting and they changed the schedule so I could go home.
''She signed him a birthday card, which is pride of place in the kitchen. He shows it to everybody who comes around.''
And the brunette beauty also impressed the actor's parents.
He added: ''When my mom and dad came to visit she was so lovely with them that they floated back home. They're still telling everyone.''
