For Angelina Jolie, acting has always been the family business.

But the daughter of Jon Voight and her husband, Brad Pitt, only recently extended that opportunity to their own young children in the form of a small role in her forthcoming “Maleficent.”

While it has been confirmed that Vivienne will play a young Aurora (Elle Fanning) in the new take on Sleeping Beauty, the A-list star tells “Elle” magazine that another of the Jolie-Pitt kids turned down the role.

“I asked Shiloh about being Aurora, and she laughed in my face. She said she’d be a horned creature,” she said.

As for whether more acting is in the cards for them, she told "Elle," “Brad and I made the decision that we wouldn’t keep them from sets and the fun of making movies, but we wouldn’t [glorify it either]… But I would really prefer they do something else.”

The “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” co-stars are also rumored to be developing a new movie, in which they’d play an on-screen couple once again.”

Only time will tell if one of the Jolie-Pitt kids was bitten by the acting bug. Sound off on Angelina’s comments below!
