(Newser) – Good thing Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt had daughter Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, because otherwise how in the world would they ever pay the rent? The 4-year-old, who recently snagged a role in mom's upcoming movie Maleficent, will be making $3,000 per week—or, to put it more simply, "a lot more money than you make." And, because that's not quite enough money to live off of, she'll also get a daily $60 per diem, reports TMZ after taking a look at the toddler's contract. Yes, it's fine for you to go cry into your brown bag lunch now.

Filming started last summer, and the movie will be released in July of next year, the Daily Mail reports. Vivienne's older siblings, Pax and Zahara, also have smaller roles, but no word yet on the depressing-for-the-rest-of-us salaries they're commanding.
