Brad Pitt's children Shiloh and Knox prank their dad on set

Shiloh and Knox Jolie-Pitt are growing up to be mischievous little rascals, if a new video showing the youngsters is anything to go by. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's nine-year-old daughter and seven-year-old son were accompanying their parents on the set of their new film By The Sea, when the pair took a moment to pull a joke on their dad.

A sleeping Brad was taking a break from filming and having a nap when, unbeknownst to him, Knox creeps up and fires a shot from a BB gun. The fair-haired boy giggles and runs off as Brad sits bolt upright, saying "Damn it!" while Shiloh is also seen running around on set with a slingshot.

The 51-year-old actor and his wife Angelina are starring in the new drama, which tells the tale of a couple whose marriage is reaching breaking point.

Angelina, 40, wrote and directed the movie and plays dancer Vanessa, opposite her husband Brad who plays her on-screen partner Roland. The characters have a tempestuous relationship and in real life, Angelina and Brad started filming the drama straight after their August wedding last year, which was covered exclusively by HELLO! magazine.

The couple, who have six children together, are never far from their youngsters, who accompanied their parents on set on the Mediterranean island of Gozo.

Speaking about what it was like to work with his other half, Brad, who famously met Angelina while filming Mr. & Mrs. Smith, said: "We can experiment and play and it's oddly a safer environment than any set I've been on before. So we let loose."

"So we let loose," Angelina echoed.

"When I was writing it, I never assumed we'd actually do it so I wrote with a certain kind of freedom," added the actress. "I was so happy that he was willing to try this with me."

"It was absolutely challenging," said Brad. "One of the most challenging things I've ever taken on."
