The Hollywood star revealed that she hired her two sons, 21-year-old Maddox and 18-year-old Pax, to work on her new film ‘Without Blood’ starring Salma Hayek and Demian Bichir.
The 47-year-old actress, who recently had the support of her kids during a “tough” personal experience, is directing the upcoming production and wanted her kids to work behind the scenes of the film.
The actress-turned-director revealed to People magazine that her sons Maddox, 21, and Pax, 18, had roles behind-the-scenes of her latest directorial effort, which stars her Eternals co-star, Salma Hayek, and Demián Bichir.
On the decision to give her sons jobs in the production, Jolie told People, “We work well together. When a film crew is at its best, it feels like a big family, so it felt natural.”
This is not the first time the actress has worked with one of her kids, Pax previously shot stills for his mother’s 2017 flick First They Killed My Father.
Without Blood is based on the 2002 novel by Alessandro Barrico and has been described as “an unforgettable fable set in the aftermath of an unidentified conflict (which) explores universal truths about war, trauma, memory, and healing.”
This will be Angelina’s fifth project working as director, after making her debut in the 2011 movie ‘In the Land of Blood and Honey’ followed by ‘Unbroken, By the Sea’ in which she was also acting, and last time directing ‘First They Killed My Father.’
