Vivienne was the first to feel a connection with The Outsiders, inspiring her mum to get involved.

“She did. But I think that’s to say for anybody watching and anybody who is going to see this and what they brought forward… this is about family,” the actress said. 

Jolie shares six children with her ex-husband, Brad Pitt: twins Knox and Vivienne, 15, Shiloh, 17, Zahara, 18, Pax, 20, and Maddox, 22. 

The actress continued: “And the same reason it responded to her and the same reason she wanted me next to her watching it and the same reason we all hugged when I came out here is because this is about family.”

For Jolie, family is everything.

She told Harper’s Bazaar that her kids have shaped her into who she is today.
