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.

    Thanks Jared for the news!!

    I can’t believe we have almost a year to wait and see Maleficent ! I know it will be so worth it though! Sleeping Beauty was such a huge hit in my house with me and my girls. We seen it at least 100 x’s if not more. One Halloween, I had to hire a taylor to custom design a Princess Aurora dress for my eldest daughter and Maleficent for my youngest. They both still have their them too. Its going to be a huge family movie night for us next July! My daughters are always talking about being first at the theater. Of course Angelina Jolie is all of our favorite actress. So we are all psyched!!

    Lucky fans seeing Angelina Jolie at the D23 expo. What an amazing surprise!!

    Many many more Blessings to the JP’s and to their family and Fans!

    Loved all the tweets saying how AMAZING Angie looked. Her smile is the best.. beautiful and her eyes too.

  • Can’t wait for maleficent

    @Mickeyupdates We got to see a clip from Maleficent featuring her putting the curse on Aurora. Angelina Jolie laughing as Maleficent gives you chills!

    Highlights of the live action panel: Angelina Jolie’s laugh as Maleficent and the mysterious 1952 box featured in the new movie Tomorrowland

    @Love the JoliePitts
    That {subtitle maker / interpritor for HW actors} lady is well-known for her 40 years careet in the industry.
    Now whenever she mentions Brad, ‘ Angie Effect ‘ is told by her.
    And her audience nods with smile. haha

    @Wonderbust: I know nothing about Maleficent. I don’t remember reading or seeing this. So thanks for posting this youtube video.

    Loads of people supporting #Maleficent movie with paper horns. Wait till the product is out! You are sure to love what I got in store.

  • Jones

    Looks like Angie got a wonderful reception from the audience. They’re clearly standing and applauding in a few of the images and she is moved by it. She is such a gracious woman.
    I now have something to look forward to next summer. Brad owned the summer of 2013 and Angie will own 2014….and a July 4th holiday weekend opener at that. Maleficent will be huge!

  • YIB

    I didn’t realise there is a new thread… Angie looks good. Malifcient sound great right n ow. hope they not gonna make it lame.

  • So true tamsh*t


    See just like the experts say.. Crazy people like you don’t know they are crazy. they think it is everyone else.. LOL.

    You are so obsessed over Angie.. do you sit in a dark room searching for stories. LOL. Bit@@h STFD.. YOU are are a NUT CASE. no ifs ands or buts.. you are a PSYCHO..

  • Ⱦamsin

    How is desperately trying to take a page out of Charlize Theron and play a villain in a dark remaining of a classic fable. LOL at being such a follower, but it’s understandable, one look at sweet beautiful Charlize and Ho will be swept with rage and jealousy, as she realizes she’s done everything right and CT never had to turn to PR stunts, tipping the paps, homewrecking, or child pimping to stay relevant, so why wouldn’t the unemployed Ho try to follow in her footsteps? LOL.

  • busted


    It is refreshing to see how she is able to actually articulate her film and talk about it from a personal stand point. How great.

    and she was very moved by the reception she got.

  • susan

    It’s really sad that she has to pip out her kid for a movie. And she just had to get a DD cup for surgery. How is that brave?

  • Ⱦamsin

    @So true Tam:

    It’s true that you psychotic enablers deny this woman’s mental condition, who may one day get one of her children hurt in her incessant quest for fame, power and recognition. Then again, you are also mentally ill and suffer from Celebrity Worship Syndrome.

    Seek help loons!

    The first ever footage of Maleficent screened at D23, which Peter Sciretta of Slashfilm described quite highly: “Really looks like a Disney fairytale come to life. Good stuff.” Then the lady of the hour, Angelina Jolie, appeared to a standing ovation and talked about how bad-ass Maleficent’s horns are. GOOD.

    More importantly, the official Maleficent synopsis was released, which reveals a bit as to why this awesome villain decided to go green and ruin princess Aurora’s life:

    “Maleficent” is the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.

  • Jones

    I was unaware of this, but Pax and Zee have small roles in Maleficent, along with their little sis, Viv. It’s a family affair….adorable.

  • http://jj honestly

    She looks really scary since she cut off her breasts. I also think she probably actually was sick because no sane person would cut off two perfectly good breasts as a preventative measure. That is just nuts. My guess is she was actually sick and had to do it but didn’t want to be viewed as sick so said she did it preventatively. Of course she has a beautiful face and I do admire her good works. But she does look scary skinny like a 12 year old and I find it sad and scary and strange that she did such a gross disfigurement to herself- just as a precaution. Besides, if that is the case the illness would just find another place to go. And she is gonna cut out her womb next? That is really creepy.

  • plez

    I think Disney only has two more movies coming out this year. Frozen on Nov 27 and Saving Mr Bank on Dec 20. So I assume they will release it with one of those movies.

  • Wonderbust

    I heard it may come out with Thor which is Marvel/Disney and that is November. The Lone Ranger another independence Disney flick had the trailer out in Nov

  • Ⱦamsin


    More lies from the fake Japanese JP troll. What is the point of this?

    The fake fan never said what word the media uses to describe the Ho… “wife” is certainly not the one! LOL.

  • plez

    Thanks Wonderbust. Can’t wait to see it.

  • busted


    Thanks for your great post.. Please keep posting all that great info. The JPs have the best fans ever

  • YIB

    she looks good. Shedoesn’t look scary. Ignore the troll.
    I am glad she did what she did she has kids and a hubby to worry about to leave behined most importantly her health. She looks model thin here.

  • juju

    angelina looks fantastic
    beautiful n glowing
    im looking foward to see maleficent

  • sunny

    the official Maleficent synopsis was released,
    As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.
    That last part sounds very similar to the leaked early draft.
    That explains why Disney chose 14 years old Elle Fanning for 16 years old Aurora. Elle’s baby face is the symbol of hope. Though she looks very young but she always gives depth to the characters she plays.

  • busted


    I like Elle.. and am glad she got the part.. She and Dakota are very impressive. 2 young girls growing up RIGHT so far.

  • African Girl

    She IS positively glowing!!!!!!!
    Funny story about Viv. Girl knew that was hwr mom underneath all that makeup and costume.

  • valis202

    Am so excited about this film. The pedigree of the people attached to it is amazing from the writer to the director and of course Angie.

    Is gonna be amazing

  • sunny

    I have read some Sleeping Beauty fans were complaining the casting of Elle for Aurora. They were saying she is too young for Aurora or she is cute but not beautiful as Aurora etc etc.
    But I was thinking there was good reasons of casting her and that would be her innocent face first. At the same time she has something very tough element. She looks like a vulnable girl but really tough inside.

  • hopeso

    My Lady!!! My Love!!!! She is gorgeous Top everyone.

  • Ⱦamsin

    “Positively glowing….”? Ugh Jared, enough with the lies and the misinformation campaign. Stop posting nauseating praises for a paycheck, you know damn well that this PR actress looks ill.

    The only glow we can see is the one where the light bounces off her botoxed forehead.

  • naturegirl

    Where have you been?
    I’ve looked for you forever and a day.
    Where have you been?
    I’m just not myself when you’re away…..

    No I’m just not myself when you’re away..

  • Guli

    OMG, she looks so frail and sick, why don’t people think she’s suffering? It breaks my heart to think of her children. She may not live to see them grow old.

  • lucy

    Can you believe it, I say Angie looks stunning, and they put me in moderation helll.

  • lucy

    I’ve only got to read a few comments, but I see the Trolls are going absolutely INSANE, shouldn’t they be happy their idol came in second at the most lackluster BO week-end this summer, really Trolls, if you think Angie looks “ill” , then all women should be so “ill”. Jealous, and obviously morbidly obese Trolls. lol

  • LooseLipz


    So true. Those poor kids. Never home for more than a few days, all over the world, totally unstable mother, moody and anorexic, a father who smells and smokes tons of weed….such a wonderful family! The Adams family perhaps,

  • trt

    @Ⱦamsin: oh, please. It is your biggest and greatest ambition to be the town pump if you’re honest. Except noone wants to prime your pump even for free.

    Pervert! You cream at anyone paying any attention to you so you come here and bait the fans.

    Angelina is beautiful. She is great. She is wonderful.
    Don’t bother replying to this post. I’ve already contributed to your need for release. Now it’s time to disinfect my computer. Ewwww! Baho mo!

  • busted

    Gosh I had no idea California was all over the world. Such concern for the kids.

    Wonder if these idiots are helping the poor children in their communities.

    NOPE bet not.


    The Angie appearance was a treat for today.

  • NYC

    She looks amazing!!!! I love the shoes. NICE.

    LooseLipz @ 08/10/2013 at 6:35 pm

    just goes to show what a doomas you are. the adams family was about LOVE AND FAMILY. THEY HAD EACH OTHER’S BACKS….ALWAYS. being compared to them is NOT an insult. since Brad left the stain, he has gone from strength to strength, becoming one of the most powerful producers/actors in his industry. the stain needs to strip to try and stay relevant. as one reviewer noted…quite desperate. la jolie hasn’t been in a movie for FOUR YEARS…BY CHOICE….AND SHE GETS A STANDING OVATION. she is the catalyst of GLOBAL conversations regarding major issues. ENOUGH SAID.

  • Media Wh@re MANiston


    OMG!! Can’t wait for this movie too. So excited.

    As for the poor kids comment, what do we expect from the stupid trolls. Lack of originality. They bring back the same BS every year.

  • Bea

    Angelina looks amazing as always and amazed at the audience’s reaction – she is a true star.

    A big ole yawn to the hens and their oh so tired and repeated attempts at getting attention.

    I’d say go play in your fat idol’s thread, but we all know that you have to stay wherever the JPs are and pretend that you don’t care.

    The act is as lame as your idol.

  • michele

    Media Wh@re MANiston @ 08/10/2013 at 6:46 pm
    i am jazzed for this as well. i don’t usually respond to trolls but enough is enough.

  • Media Wh@re MANiston


    Thank you for your fake concern. I’m surprise you didn’t attack the kids today or wish their mother dead.

  • lucy

    @Passing Through: I just read that post #71, now that is one sick biitch, instead of talking about Angie, maybe she should start worrying about herself, that much evil has to have some basis, the person is obviously very, very sick herself, mentally and physically.
