Unlike some other celebrities who would never date another actor, let alone permit their children to dive headlong into that wood-chipper they call show biz, Angelina Jolie fully supports her kids pursuing filmmaking as a career. And why not? At 13 and 16, her sons Pax and Maddox have already worked on First They Killed My Father, a Netflix film that just premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.

"Maddox worked hard. It's up to him," Jolie said in an interview with E! News. "This [film] is very important to him, but I think so." And while Pax "did a lot of the stills" and Maddox executive-produced the adaptation of human rights activist Loung Ung's memoirs, Jolie said she'd be supportive of all her brood jumping on the movie-making bandwagon. "I might dream. If I am to continue to be in this business, I'd love to work with my children if they choose to be in this business."

Previously, Maddox worked as a production assistant on By the Sea-which Jolie directed and starred in alongside Brad Pitt-meaning a teen's CV is way more stacked than yours. First They Killed My Father opens in theaters and Netflix on September 15.
