The mom-of-six tried to get them to appear in "Maleficent", but "nobody was interested."

They have the two biggest movie stars on the planet as parents.

But none of Angelina Jolie's kids want to follow them into showbusiness, the Oscar-winner has revealed.

"None of my kids want to be actors," she told People. "[They're into] business, humanitarian affairs, things like that."

The "Maleficent" star said she tried to get them to appear alongside her in the Disney sequel — as they were hanging out with her in London throughout the shoot — but "nobody was interested."

Jolie shares Maddox, 18, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and 11-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, with ex-husband Brad Pitt.

While her youngest daughter appeared alongside her in the first film playing the five-year-old Aurora in 2014, the now 11-year-old couldn't be tempted back a second time.

"I tried," Jolie said. "Viv still can't believe I made her a princess."

In fact, returning to play the Disney villain was an effort for Jolie herself, who admitted she was "pretty broken" when work on "Maleficent: Mistress of Evil" began, around the same time she finalized her divorce from her third husband.

"It was a tough time," she said. "I'd been coming off a few years of difficulty, and I was not feeling very strong. In fact, I was feeling pretty broken. It took me a moment to feel the strength of [Maleficent] again."

While Angelina's day job is acting, she is heavily involved in humanitarian affairs, and serves as a Special Envoy to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
