Angelina Jolie: Why She Was ‘Drawn’ To ‘Maleficent’

Angelina made an appearance at Disney’s D23 expo in Aug. 2013, where the took the stage and shared her thoughts on bringing the self-proclaimed “mistress of all evil” to life on the big screen:

Ever since I was a little girl, Maleficent was always my favorite — no surprise. I was terrified of her, but I was so drawn to her. I wanted to know more about her; I wanted to know what she was like. She had this elegance and this grace, and yet she was so cruel and just wonderful.

It sounds like Angelina’s really put a lot of thought into this; we can’t wait to see what she comes up with!
