Maleficent Interview – Angelina Jolie

By Drax Largo on May 28th, 2014

We know Angelina Jolie does “intense” pretty well. She won an Oscar playing sociopath Lisa Rowe in Girl Interrupted (1999); she demonstrated the joy and agony of married life as Jane Smith in Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005) alongside real-life beau Brad Pitt; and she demonstrated the duality of a Post-Cold War world as double-agent Evelyn Salt in Salt (2010).

In her latest offering, Maleficent, Jolie plays the title character, the vindictive fairy is driven to curse an infant princess only to realize the child may be the only one who can restore peace.

In our Maleficent interview with the superstar, Jolie discusses the daunting taks of portraying such an iconic character, the most and least appealing aspects of the character, as well as working with co-star Elle Fanning.

Maleficent hits theatres this Friday.
