Vivienne Jolie-Pitt is making her movie debut alongside her
Walt Disney Studios says Angelina Jolie's youngest daughter will
play a "minor role" in "Maleficent," in which
Angelina plays the
title character. Vivienne is set to play a young Princess
Aurora, who grows up to be evil Maleficent's target in the
live-action "Sleeping Beauty" tale.
Production on the film began in London in June. "Maleficent" is
set to hit theaters in March of 2014.
No word if Vivienne's twin brother, Knox, is working on a movie
career of his own.
this file photo from July 24, 2005, overall leader Lance Armstrong signals seven for
his seventh straight win in the Tour de France cycling race as he pedals during
the 21st and final stage of the race between Corbeil-Essonnes, south of Paris,
and the French capital. The superstar cyclist, whose stirring victories after
his comeback from cancer helped him transcend sports, chose not to pursue
arbitration in the drug case brought against him by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.

stage for the titles to be stripped and his name to be all but wiped from the
record books of the sport he once ruled.
