Without any doubt, the oldest of Jolie-Pitt’s kids loved producing the film with Angelina. As he opened up in an interview with PEOPLE:

[She’s] fun, funny, and easy to work with. She’s a wonder.

In fact, it was Maddox who inspired Angelia to shoot the film in the first place. The drama takes place in Cambodia, the boy’s home country. And the teenager has studied many documentaries to help with the script.

Maddox is also grateful to his mom for focusing on her family after filing for divorce from her partner of many years, Brad Pitt. The actress retreated from the spotlight to spend more time with her children and help them heal from the painful split. As Angelina said:

I haven’t worked for over a year now because they needed me home. We’ve all been a bit in lockdown.

The 16-year-old also worked with his father in ‘World War Z’. He had a violent cameo there, and his character died by getting shot in the head multiple times.


In addition to acting and filmmaking, Maddox speaks and learns multiple languages, such as French, Russian, and German, as well as takes flying lessons.

A talented child of talented parents!
