    Angelina Jolie's daughter Vivienne was a "really tough assistant" when they worked together on Broadway musical 'The Outsiders'

    The Hollywood actress acted as lead producer on the show and 15-year-old Vivienne indulged her love of theatre by joining the project as a volunteer and Angelina has admitted the teen was her toughest critic


    When asked who is the "biggest theatre head" in the family, Angelina told PEOPLE: "Viv. Definitely Viv ... Hands down. She'll correct me. She'll say, 'Didn't you read the memo? We have to do this, we have to go through this'.

    "She's been a really tough assistant. She takes it very, very seriously."

    Angelina previously admitted Vivienne - whose dad is actor Brad Pitt - reminds her of her own mother Marcheline Bertrand. When announcing Vivienne's role on 'The Outsiders', Angelina said in a statement: "Viv reminds me of my mother in that she isn't focused on being the centre of attention but in being a support to other creatives.

    "She's very thoughtful and serious about theatre and working hard to best understand how to contribute."

    She went on to reveal Vivienne is the reason she got onboard with the show in the first place.

    Angelina added: " I studied at the Lee Strasberg Institute where I realised my first love, as a performer, was the theatre.

    "I had not found a way back until now. I hope to be able to contribute while continuing to learn from this amazing team, who I have been working with since my daughter brought me to see the show at La Jolla Playhouse ... I can't begin to express how excited I am for this musical to make its Broadway debut and look forward to sharing this new adaptation of The Outsiders with the world."

    Vivienne joined her mother at the musical's red carpet premiere in New York on Thursday (11.04.24). It is based on S. E. Hinton's 1967 novel and was previously adapted as a 1983 movie starring Tom Cruise and Patrick Swayze and directed by Francis Ford Coppola.
