Angelina Jolie on Maleficent Role: She's a Great Person!

by at . Comments

When Angelina Jolie signed on for the title role in Disney's Maleficent, she did so relishing the idea of her kids seeing her as the Sleeping Beauty villain.

"It's a really great script. I'm having a lot of fun. I've already got my horns fitted," Jolie told Entertainment Weekly on Friday. "My kids are very happy."

"It's not anti-princess, but it's the first time that they're looking at this epic woman [in a different way]," she says of the new take on the fairytale classic.

"You see a woman capable of being many things; just because she protects herself and is aggressive, it doesn't mean she can't have other [warmer] qualities," the leg-thrusting actress adds. "You have to figure out the puzzle of what she is."

Jolie says there are redeeming qualities to her character, despite her ruthlessness.

"It sounds really crazy to say that there will be something that's good for young girls in this, because it sounds like you're saying they should be a villain," Jolie says.

"[Maleficent] is actually a great person. But she's not perfect. She's far from perfect."

The actress has already begun working with the costume department to perfect her look for the film, which begins shooting in June.

"We're experimenting with different things," Jolie says. "But the horns are the horns - you can't deny them. You have to have horns."

escher pisze:I think A Mighty Heart is her best work. She got an Oscar for Girl, Interrupted which was really good, based on a true story. I like the Lara Croft miveos, The Bone Collector was a good movie and Pushing Tin is one of my favorites.

I am so excited about this movie!! Melificent has always been my favorite villain. I'm looking forward to Angelina's transformation into her. I had hoped they were further along into filming not still working on costumes. Ugh oh well! Haters gotta hate but will definitely be missing out on this film.

Maleficent is a vengeful fairy (not person do your research Jolie) who just got pissy because she wasn't invited to a party for a baby who was just born and wouldn't remember it anyway. This is a nightmare casting, she really isn't that big an actress and is more well known these days for adopting the kids, not for her great acting chops. Most of her films have been panned terrible by critiques these days, if not just flat out flops. Disney you were are really stretching yourselves trying to get the kids back with the A-listers the parents "want" to see huh? Just no... This casting is... no. Just Godawful
