Angelina Jolie gushes about how close she has become to ‘thoughtful’ daughter Vivienne… as teen has not been pictured with dad Brad Pitt in YEARS

Angelina Jolie has gushed about getting close to her daughter Vivienne.

The 49-year-old Oscar-winning actress shares the teen with her ex-husband Brad Pitt, who has not been photographed in public with Vivienne in many years, though they may be meeting in private.

It has been a difficult time for Brad and the six kids he raised with Jolie, as eldest daughter Shiloh, 18, recently dropped his last name. Before she was Shiloh Jolie-Pitt now she is just Shiloh Jolie.

But Angelina stills seems very close with all the kids following her split from Pitt almost eight years ago – in addition to Vivienne and Shiloh, she also has Maddox, 22, Pax, 20, Zahara, 19, and Vivienne's twin brother Knox.

This week Jolie told Deadline that she is closer than ever with Vivienne. She added she learned a lot about her youngest daughter through producing a Broadway show together.

The Maleficent star was introduced to The Outsiders by 15-year-old Vivienne after the teenager saw its run in California last year, and she agreed to get involved with the New York production as a result of the youngster's passion.

She told Deadline: 'My daughter Viv loves theatre.

'She appreciates all theater but she certainly knows what she feels close to and what she responds to. 

'She went to see The Outsiders at La Jolla [in San Diego] about five times and was telling me about it, and I had read the book, and I'd seen the film years ago.'

At the urging of her daughter, Angelina revisited the material.

And she began 'really watching the effect it was having on my young daughter and what she was telling me about herself.

'And I was learning what about it was important to her and why it connected so deeply to her.'

The Gia star then joined the production as producer, with her daughter as her assistant.

And Angelina realized doing so was 'a moment to learn more about Viv.'

She explained: 'It was a very different experience of understanding, of how this is having a significant effect on her as a young person right now, and she's communicating something to me.

'And that is the power of this material.'

Jolie added: 'And then I had the privilege of watching everyone work over this last year to make it into what it is, and Vivienne has been there the whole way.'

The Tomb Raider star previously admitted her youngest daughter reminds her of her late mother, Marcheline Bertrand, because she doesn't want to be the 'centre of attention' though she works very hard.

She told E! News: 'Viv reminds me of my mother, in that she isn't focused on being the center of attention but in being a support to other creatives.

'She's very thoughtful and serious about theatre and working hard to best understand how to contribute.'
