On Monday, May 13, the actress, 48, brought her 15-year-old daughter Vivienne with her to the Today Plaza, where she spoke with co-host Hoda Kotb about the production. Jolie shared that it was Vivienne, who joined the production as a volunteer assistant, who first felt a connection to the work.

“You mentioned your daughter Vivienne. She’s here today too. She’s working along with the cast but she turned you onto this. Tell us, how this came to be," Kotb asks Jolie, with the camera panning to show Vivienne in the crowd.

“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," Jolie says. "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 a -

bout family."

Jolie shares her six kids — twinsKnoxandVivienne, 15, daughtersShiloh, 17, andZahara, 18,as well as sonsPax, 20, andMaddox, 22 — with ex-husbandBrad Pitt.

At the premiere of The Outsiders in April, Jolie was also joined by Vivienne on the red carpet. The actress was photographed posing with her daughter, as well as the show's score creator and book co-creator Justin Levine, plus the cast, on thered carpetat the Bernard B.Jacobs Theatre.

In December, Jolie spoke about how she doesn't "really have ... a social life" in Los Angeles, instead opting to keep close bonds with her kids.

"They are the closest people to me and my life, and they’re my close friends," she told the WSJ. Magazine. "We’re seven very different people, which is our strength."

Jolie also spoke about how she's afforded her children the ability to experience life without the threat of paparazzi that surrounded them as younger children. In some cases, she simply allows them to go places and do things and stays back herself.

"You kind of step out when there’s times you would have liked to have been there,” she explained.
