Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are two of the biggest acting stars of our generation - but their kids have no interest in following in their footsteps.

The former couple share Maddox, 18, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and 11-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne together, after their split in 2016.

The Maleficent star admitted her attempts at giving any of them cameos in her new film Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil had been futile as they just weren't bothered in starring in a Hollywood film.

She told People, "I tried. Nobody was interested!

"None of my kids want to be actors. [They’re into] business, humanitarian affairs, things like that."

Their youngest daughter Vivienne appeared in the first Maleficent installment, playing Aurora. But Ange revealed she's still furious that she was made into a Princess by her mother.

She went on, "Vivienne still can’t believe I made her a princess. She likes her overalls, I can’t put her in a dress. So she’s like, 'How could you make me a princess?'"

Aside from her acting achievements, Ange also travels the world as an advocate for women's rights, refugees, children affected by conflict and many other important causes.

The former couple also set up the Jolie-Pitt Foundation during their marriage, so it's no surprise their children are charitable themselves.

Good on them!
