Angelina Jolie Talks 'Maleficent' and Writing Afghanistan Movie

Angelina Jolie opens up to EW in an interview just in time for the DVD release of her directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey.

Here’s what the 36-year-old actress had to share:

On writing a script about the war in Afghanistan: “I have been writing something, because I’ve been there a few times — Afghanistan and Pakistan — in the last 11 years, and it’s a part of the world we’re all quite aware of now, but … I’m not sure. I’m going to actually see this weekend what people think of [the script.] But I like it and I’ve enjoyed doing the research.”

On Maleficent: “I start it in June, and it’s a really great script. I’m having a lot of fun. I’ve already got my horns fitted. My kids are very happy….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. [Maleficent] is actually a great person. But she’s not perfect. She’s far from perfect.”

On discussion of Maleficent’s looks: “We’re still figuring out the look. We’re experimenting with different things. But the horns are the horns – you can’t deny them. You have to have horns.”

    I also can’t wait for the DVD release tomorrow. I have not been able to see it yet. It will be interesting if she does do a Afghanistan and Pakistan movie.

    So I guess Brad won’t be doing any movies for a while, right? At least until this movie is done shooting.

    Jojo Says:

    She’s awesome!

    Jojo Says:

    I hope we get lots of pics from the set of Maleficent.

    Her reward for shilling for the UN is to write and direct more crappy propaganda movies. Congrats traitor.

    far from perfect Jokie Says:

    for sure

    Jojo Says:

    What a wonderful humanitarian she is. Who would know more how to write a movie about Afghanistan than someone who’s been there and follows closely what’s going on. I’m sure she is thorough in her research.

    Jojo Says:

    She so beautiful. Even as she is aging she still can give girls almost half her age a run for their money.

    Jojo Says:

    June seems so far away yet. Hopefully we get some more pics before then.

    @NWO Angie:

    Well, Angie is not the only person is followin her evil orders. Julia Roberts and Charliez Theron are doing it too. So, Angie is in great company.

    Jojo Says:

    No, not sad, just trying to keep the psycho stalkers from dominating the first page.

    ugh Says:

    Is she going to write another rape movie?
    I’m sure there willl be plenty of violence.

    Jojo Says:

    And Angie will act circles around that annoying Julia Roberts too.
