I don’t like the pictures shown here to depict them. They’re using angie’s photo and hailee to depict youth vs oldness. It’d be better if they showed a more flatter picture of angelina. Angelina is way better than Hailee.

But Angie is way too old to be sleeping beauty. Isn’t she?

Angelina is still here today. But she would make a great witch!! She is versatile. Hailee may always play the nice girl like Jennifer Aniston.
