Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s youngest daughter, Vivienne, is starting to follow in her parents’ footsteps.

The 15-year-old was born, alongside her twin brother Knox, in July 2008 in Nice, France, as the youngest of six siblings. She grew up primarily out of the public eye but made numerous red carpet appearances alongside her mother throughout her life and even collaborated on projects with her.

Jolie has been open about how raising her six children has been “healing” for her as she and Pitt encouraged them to be their own people and follow their various ambitions.

"I have six very individual human beings in my home. I am so excited about all the different stages and feelings and curiosities that they go through. Why wouldn't you be?" she told PEOPLE in October 2021. "We're supposed to help them figure out who they are. And you can't figure out who they are if you don't enthusiastically develop with them."

In May 2024, Vivienne was credited as "Vivienne Jolie" in the Playbill for The Outsiders on Broadway, which she helped her mom produce, seemingly having dropped Pitt's last name. It hasn't yet been confirmed if this change was made legally.

From her early acting credits to her burgeoning love for theater, here’s everything to know about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s youngest daughter, Vivienne.

Jolie first announced she was expecting when she debuted her baby bump at the Independent Spirit Awards red carpet. On July 12, 2008, her twins, Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Léon, were born in Nice, France. Vivienne was born a minute after her brother, weighing exactly 5 lbs.

The family spent time at the Château Miraval in Provence, France, following the birth of the twins. The proud parents spoke to PEOPLE at the time about how their older children were helping out with the newborns.

“[Shiloh] and Z pick out [the twins’] clothes and help change and hold them,” Jolie said. “It’s sweet – they are little mommies.”

She added that the house was “chaos,” with Pitt joking “it’s still a cuckoo’s nest.”

She was named after Jolie’s mother

Vivienne was named after a person close to Jolie’s heart: her deceased mom, Marcheline Bertrand. She died from cancer a little over a year before Vivienne was born, and Jolie chose to honor her with Vivienne’s middle name.

Vivienne lived up to her name, too, with Jolie expressing in August 2023 that her youngest child made her think of her mother.

"Viv reminds me of my mother in that she isn’t focused on being the center of attention but in being a support to other creatives," Jolie said in a statement to PEOPLE. "She’s very thoughtful and serious about theatre and working hard to best understand how to contribute."

In 2014, Vivienne appeared in her mother’s movie Maleficent as the younger version of Elle Fanning’s Aurora. Jolie said that her daughter, just a toddler at the time of shooting, was the only option since other kids were too scared to film with her as the menacing character.

“We think it’s fun for our kids to have cameos and join us on set, but not to be actors. That’s not our goal, for Brad and I, at all,” Jolie told Entertainment Weekly at the time. “But the other three- and four-year-old [performers] wouldn’t come near me. It had to be a child that liked me and wasn’t afraid of my horns and my eyes and my claws. So it had to be Viv.”

Jolie later reflected on the experience working with Vivienne on the movie, sharing during a Disney roundtable that the then-toddler was impressive in rehearsals.

"When we did it together, we had a good time. I was actually shocked that she was doing so well she went back and hit her mark! It's frightening," Jolie said.

She’s joined her mom on red carpets

Though Jolie and Pitt have mainly kept their kids out of the spotlight, the Jolie-Pitt clan has joined their mom on various carpets. Vivienne was by her mom’s side at The Eternals premiere in both London and Los Angeles in October 2021 along with her siblings.

She also joined her family at the Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil premiere in 2019. Most recently, Vivienne accompanied Jolie to the premiere of The Outsiders on Broadway, which she helped produce.

She helped her mom produce a Broadway musical

In August 2023, Jolie announced she was producing a Broadway adaptation of S.E. Hinton's novel and Francis Ford Coppola’s 1983 film The Outsiders. From the get-go, Vivienne was set to assist her mom in the process as the mother-daughter duo enjoyed a performance together in the summer of 2023.

The idea for the adaptation came after Vivienne inspired Jolie to see the musical. “She saw an early workshop a few times and then invited me to it,” the actress told PEOPLE during the April 2024 opening night.

The teenager served as a volunteer assistant to her mom and quickly became passionate about the project.

"Viv is a young artist who focuses her efforts on her support of others," Jolie said. "She has been there to assist in any way she can and has learned so much from [score and co-book writer] Justin Levine and the whole creative team."

She is the family’s biggest “theater head”

Vivienne was an easy choice for Jolie when deciding whether she would assist her, especially since the teen is a big fan of theater. During the red carpet for the opening night of The Outsiders, Jolie told PEOPLE that her daughter was the family’s biggest “theater head.”

“Viv. Definitely Viv,” she said, while The Outsiders book and score creator Justin Levine nodded and added, “Definitely Viv.”

She also took the job “very, very seriously,” with Jolie telling PEOPLE she was a “tough assistant.

"She'll correct me," the proud mom said. "She'll say, 'Didn't you read the memo? We have to do this. We have to go through this.' "
