Angelina Jolie recently opened up about working with her daughter Vivienne on The Outsiders.

The film, that brought the Maleficent actress several Tony nominations, also happened to form a deeper bond with her 15-year-old daughter.

During an interview with the Deadline, the humanitarian talked about Vivienne’s interests.

Conversing with The Outsiders director Danya Taymor, Jolie noted: "My daughter Viv loves theater. She appreciates all theater but she certainly knows what she feels close to and what she responds to.”

Recalling the instance, she continued: “She went to see The Outsiders at La Jolla about five times and was telling me about it, and I had read the book, and I'd seen the film years ago."

Reflecting on her experience watching the film, that is a musical adaptation of the S.E. Hinton 1967 novel, the actress talked about her daughter establishing a deep connection.

While the mother-daughter duo watched it at the La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego in March 2023, The Tourist alum shared: "Really, as a mother, as a person, I was watching it, but I was really watching the effect it was having on my young daughter and what she was telling me about herself, and I was learning what about it was important to her and why it connected so deeply to her."

The 49-year-old actress regarded the film as “powerful” and a very “different experience of understanding.”

Concluding her statement, she added: "How this is having a significant effect on her as a young person right now, and she's communicating something to me, and that is the power of this material, which was in really good shape even by then."

For the unversed, , Angelina, who shares kids with Brad Pitt,  is also a mom to Vivienne, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and Vivienne's twin Knox.
