London: Actress Angelina Jolie found it difficult being mean to daughter Vivienne in 'Maleficent'. The 38-year-old actress, who plays the titular villain in the re-imagining of Walt Disney's 1959 'Sleeping Beauty', worked opposite her five-year-old daughter who was cast as the young Princess Aurora, reported Contactmusic.

"It's not easy. I actually had to say to her things like 'I don't like children, go away'. When you say that to your own kids in the big devil horns, in the staff... But, fortunately, because she's my kid, that's why we cast her, other kids were scared of me.
"I could say anything and look as scary as they come and she'd just smile at me like 'I don't care, I love you'," Jolie said. Despite Vivienne being in the film, Jolie said she and fiance Brad Pitt did not want any of their six children to become movie stars.
"Neither one of us want our children to be actors, Brad and I but it was just I really couldn't ask another four/ five year old to do it because kids on set did actually get scared and they would cry when they would see me."
