Angelina Jolie: I Frightened Kids on the 'Maleficent' Set!

Angelina Jolie: I Frightened Kids on the 'Maleficent' Set!

Angelina Jolie looks positively glowing while making an appearance on stage during the Maleficent presentation at the 2013 Disney D23 Expo on Saturday morning (August 10) at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif.

The 38-year-old actress told a story about how her costume scared all the children visiting the set except her own daughter Vivienne, who has a small part in the film as Young Aurora.

“The strange thing was people with little kids would visit the set and I would think, ‘I’m a Disney character!’” Angelina said (via EW). “I’d go over to the children and say hi. And they would scream and run off. One little boy actually said Mommy, ‘Please, tell the mean witch to please stop talking to me.’”

“She was the only 4-year-old who wouldn’t scream,” Angie added of Vivi.

FYI: Angelina is wearing a Versace top with Saint Laurent pants and shoes.

    I want to see this movie today. Such excitement. and the early reactions so far just from the tiny look is so positive. Wonder if she brought the children and Brad. I bet they would have the best time with all that Disney stuff all around.

    “Listen well, all of you,” she says, in a voice eerily reminiscent of Eleanor Audley, who voiced the animated character.“The princess shall indeed grow in grace and beauty. But before the sun sets on her 16th birthday, she will prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel — and fall into a sleeplike death … woken only by true love’s kiss.”
    Oh my….

    LOVE this woman – stunningly gorgeous and immensely talented as well.

    It is not fair that we have to wait another year for this movie to release:(

    I predict this movie will pass the $750M worldwide….

    I wish we could go see this right now…Angie looks adorable! Her story about Vivi reminds me of how Shiloh got her role in CCOBB- all the other child/baby actors were crying and Brad said Shiloh will do it- and the rest is history.
    Jolie’s appearance came after Walt Disney live action production head Sean Bailey spoke about casting Jolie for Maleficent. “You can pencil out a list of all the amazing actresses in the world and for us this list only had one name for the role, Angelina Jolie,”

    Angle looks beautiful, love the shoes she’s wearing. Lots of bigger photos at BRANGELINA forum for those interested.

    Trolls are going to go bat shite cray cray tonight after seen the most beautiful Angelina Jolie. I believe Brad may be with her, not sure.

    Is the TOWN PUMP still in character? Jesus, just look at her veiny arms, gigantic hands and her plastic face. Somebody tell her to take off the make up and prosthetics.

    The old Ho is desperate for a hit, she hasn’t had one since Salt, just like the Drug addict didn’t have one since Benjamin’s Buttocks. Bankable much? LOL.

    True A listers continue to get job offers and don’t stay unemployed for three years. There’s a difference between that becoming A lister by association or name recognition, which is what the likes of the Kardashians and the Heroina and her stolen man have in common.

    that last part of the quote goes to show it was her role and no one elses.

    “You can pencil out a list of all the amazing actresses in the world and for us this list only had one name for the role, Angelina Jolie,”

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ PERFECT

    During the D23 Expo’s second day of movie presentations, Walt Disney Studios presidnet Sean Bailey came out to the D23 Expo stage to present the upcoming live-action offerings, including the first footage of Angelina Jolie as the evil witch in ‘Maleficent.’
    It’s the untold story of the evil witch in ‘Sleeping Beauty,’ said Bailey. Robert Stromberg is directing and the film is produced by Joe Roth with Linda Woolverton writing the script. “We knew we had quite a task [in casting Maleficent],” he continued, before revealing the official still of her (shown above). We will finally reveal the events that hardened Maleficent’s heart and led her to curse Sleeping Beauty.
    We first see Maleficent as a teenage fairy, tending to nature, as well as an evil king lurking in the background of the story. Maleficent endures a betrayal by the king and it’s this still mysterious act that transformed her into the wicked witch we all know her as today.
    After the curse, we’ll also see the witch becoming intrigued by Elle Fanning’s Aurora, as well as the epic battle with the dragon, during which time Bailey says we might find ourselves rooting for the other side.
    Then came the big surprise! “We have Maleficent herself,” said Bailey, before revealing Angelina Jolie to the audience. “Since I was a little girl, Maleficent was always my favorite,” she said. “I was so terrified of her, but I was so drawn to her … she had this elegance and this grace, and yet she was so cruel — so wonderfully, deliciously cruel.”
    Her brother was the first to inform of her the role and was the one who encouraged her to go for it. Then Disney gave her a call and the rest is history.
    “['Maleficent'] has the elements of the world and all of the design are so much a part of the actual film,” said Jolie. “You have these beautiful fairy tale elements, and yet it has to be from the point of view of the villain … We had to push it as far as we could while staying true to the story.”
    The strange thing was the little kids who would visit the Disney set, and Jolie, thinking herself to be a Disney character, went up to them, not expecting them to scream at her in fear. One child even said, “Mommy please tell this evil witch to stop talking to me.”
    Her daughter, Vivian, however, was the one child who wouldn’t scream. She, in fact, has a small role in the film, playing young Aurora.
    The D23 Expo finished the presentation with a screening of the first ‘Maleficent’ trailer. To give you some idea of what was shown, it imagines the famous Christening scene of baby Aurora. The three fairies (Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather) fly to the castle, ready to bestow their gifts on the child. As soon as the green fairy, Fauna, is about to present hers, the candles are snuffed out and a dark whirlwind heralds the evil witch herself. “Well, well,” says Jolie, accompanied by a villainous, whispered cackle. Scenes flash forward as we see Aurora growing up into her teenage self, while Maleficent, engulfed in a green flame, casts the famed curse we can all probably recite from memory.
    “It’s something different than everything I’ve ever experienced,” said Jolie.

    I love her so and I’m so looking forward to this movie. Her account of what the little boy said to his mother is hilarious! Vivienne is all like “what’s all the screaming about?” haha

    LooseLipz Says:

    Does she own anything other than black? People wear black to appear thinner. How much thinner does she want to look? Shes just a pound shy of anorexia. It’s boring ….
    The same outfit always. Same with Brad. So much money but such bad taste in clothing.

    Love the JoliePitts Says:

    Bringing my post over for Phool and Rose and the JP fans.

    Good afternoon to ALL the wonderful JoliePitt Fans.
    Just saw two of my favorite ladies having a wonderful conversation on line and I HAD to stop by and say “Hello.”
    Hi Phool, Hi My Lady Rose.
    Phool, of course I could not help but crack up at what you were sharing w/Rose. You ladies keep me in stitches… :) I will post your comment below.
    But I wanted to share with you both that I HAD to buy the latest OK rag ONLY because of the pictures inside of our beautiful Brad and Angelina AND because they are talking about Brad and Angelina wanting a second set of TWINS…..and I AGREE with them on that point.
    I am soo hoping Brad and Angelina will have at least one more bio baby, maybe even two more, because Brad said he wants one more and because they make such gorgeous children together.
    And yes! It was wonderful seeing our beautiful couple out the other night having a lovely “date night” looking like “Twins” in their matching outfits and hairstyles and both with beautiful smiles on their very pretty faces.
    Phool, you are so right. That bag Angelina was carrying looks like it can hold all kinds of pretty lingerie, etc., for a wonderful sexy night for momma and poppa and we know how Brad loves his “Sexy” momma saying she is as “Sexy as ever” in one of his last interviews.
    I Love how they have been able to avoid the paps and are having time to do what they want and enjoy doing without the paps snapping their pictures left and right. Those two are so very smart when it comes to outwitting the nosy paps. And it is notable that both of them have avoided “interviews” about their movies or Angelina’s double mastectomy and have kept their business pretty much to themselves. They are amazing and one cannot help but admire how in the midst of the Hollywood circus, they stay pretty much to themselves. God bless our beautiful family.
    Sorry for the long post…but below is what you had me laughing about.
    Have a wonderful day ladies…I am off to take care of business. Talk with you again real soon… and by the way….It was very nice to see TISH’s comment online one day and “Hi” to my very Lovely FALP.
    Blessings go with you all.
    “Angie has a brimming smile and Brad is smiling as well they don’t have to latch on to each other like wet lettuce like (Ticky ) does they are independent strong individuals who can walk together without being a hanger on for moral support.
    Yes I agree with you that Saint Laurent bag is a big bag, which can easily store some “Sexy Silk night wear” oh
    hang on Rose let me close the window hearing screaming from the Ocean,oh no its another screaming its Squiggy he’s got his present from Ticky yes you know the ” Old Videos tapes of Girls Gone Wild” you know the ones Ticky gifted Brad on his Birthday, after all she is one classy girl, Oh yeah where was I? you know the he LEFT BEHIND along with the voicemails on the phone that she listens to every day.
    Yes mommy & Daddy had an eventful day and an even “Dirtier Night” by the looks of things lol.”
