Jolie's kid gets big cheque for small role

She is only four years old and already raking in some hefty pocket money.

Thanks to her famous mother, Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie (above), Vivienne Jolie-Pitt pocketed US$3,000 (S$3,700) for a week of work on location in England last summer on the upcoming Disney movie Maleficent, reported TMZ.

Vivienne, whose father is US actor Brad Pitt, played the child version of Princess Aurora in the re-imagining of the classic fairy tale Sleeping Beauty.

Jolie, 38, stars as the titular horned mistress of evil. TMZ added that she also received a per diem of US$60 per day on set.

Vivienne's older brother Pax, nine, and sister Zahara, eight, are also said to have filmed minor scenes in the fantasy flick, opening here next year.
