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.”
