Vivienne Jolie-Pitt Got Paid $3000 And Everyone Is Freaking Out

When Vivienne Jolie-Pitt got cast in Angelina Jolie's movie Maleficent she got paid. Everyone is making a huge deal out of the fact she was paid $3000 a week. Yes, it is a lot of money, but it also happens to be scale for a SAG theatrical feature for a weekly performer with that size of a budget. Technically it is slightly less than $3K, but I think the original report just rounded up the $100. I realize that if she worked every week of the year she would be making $150K at the age of four, but that is not going to happen. The other girl that was cast was also paid the same amount as Vivienne. I am all for great headlines, but the thing is your kids would have been paid the same amount so I don't see the huge story.

I don't see what people are upset about. You do the work, you deserve the pay.

All I know is Suri'll have a field day with this!

Frufra said...

Just had to say the Vivienne is a lovely name. I know, she's named after Angelina's mom, but I just had to pipe up and say well done.

And, yeah, she got paid for the work she did - big whoop.

It's been so long that the kids have been pictured.(which is a good thing) I can't remember if Shiloh was still in her tomboy phase. Maddox must be getting so tall.

mikey said...

It's not like she was paid 3M. You work, you get paid - what's wrong with it?

Toddler Bitch makes more than I do!

Tuxedo Cat said...

She should get paid fairly. I don't see how anyone can criticize it.

I just have to say Angie looks so HAWT in this picture. Effortlessly cool.

Who's freaking out? 1st time i've heard this.

auntliddy said...

The family does alot of charitible works. I dont begudge her/them the money.

Must be a slow fake news day.

libby said...

OMG, an actress got scale? Somebody stop this family freight train to the REAL high life, on the back of this poor toddlin' babe. I am depressed.

I'm kidding, and not doing very well.

rejectedcarebear said...

I'm only freaking out because I would love a job that paid me 3k for a week?! It takes me 3 months to make that kind of cash.

MISCH said...

Don't care...

Brenda L said...

Non-issue.

Agent**It said...

Libby ? you ok?

jane3113 said...

This is why people want to be actors. They get paid well! And if they tried to waive the salary they would have gone against the union.

libby said...

Agent, I wasn't doing well AT JOKING. I was afraid someone would misunderstand after I hit send. Sorry. Thanks tho.

Is this amount scale for a speaking role? Or is it because she's 'featured', and not just an extra? IS there a difference made in pay in that instance?

I'm kinda curious if Vivi speaks in the movie at all (or how big her part is), and if we could tell by the scale amount. If anyone knows, enlighten me, thanks.

Agent**It said...

libby, lol. I read it as a "bat signal".:)

All about Eve said...

Don't see the issue with this either.

Frufra said...

Whew! I was just about to stage a CDaN intervention - don't know exactly how I was going to do that, but just so you know :-).

Alma said...

Agreed! Ha ha, slightly jealous of a toddler. Wait a minute...*looks at children. Naw, though my son does look a little like shiloh as a baby.

southernbelle said...

All I can say is I am glad India is getting some good roles. She is a good actress and she has her bitch face down!

She looks terrified in that pic. Must be horrible for a kid. Has to really mess with your sense of fear.

Anna Nonymous said...

She did do the work, it's scale, let it go! People are just pissed because she's the child of wealthy parents, get over it. It's a huge movie, the biggest female star in the world wanted her baby in her movie, and the baby got paid. What's the big?

Munch said...

@Frufra - I thought Angelina's mother was named Marcheline - is Vivienne a middle name or something? Enquiring minds and all that... OK, I'm just nosy.

Mango said...

I think her mother's name was Marcia Lynn and she fancied it up.

Hazeldazel said...

I'm freaked out that a child of the Jolie's only made scale.

whatever.

cricket said...

The kid did the work she deserved to be paid. End of story. I wish Angelina would adopt my ass and get me 3000 a week

Frufra said...

@ Munch - I stand corrected. Vivienne's middle name is Marcheline, so she's named after her grandmother in that respect. So, I guess props to Angie and Brad for the name Vivienne!

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

Vivienne looks like Nick Cave in that photo! Makes sense, there's something about Brad Pitt that looks like Nick Cave as well... it's sort of hard to see, but it's there.

1st time I heard this.. was it only in LA, hollywood the headlines? stupid... if in CA anyway, a portion has to go into trust anyway. not like she is going out spending it.
