All Things Angelina Jolie As Of Late


Miss Angelina Jolie spills quite a few deets with EW.com in an exclusive one on one sit-down with the online diffusion magazine publication. She's promoting her directorial debut DVD release of "In the Land of Blood and Honey."

I have to say kiddas I'm most ecstatic about Jolie’s upcoming portrayal as the iconic role of the mischievous Disney character, Maleficent! In five tantalizing words alone, Angelina had this to share about the soon to be filmed movie's costume aesthetic,

“Wait until you see the horns,”

Ooh, how the goosey bumps have settled in kiddas! I can't wait.

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 why any first-time filmmaker would be nervous facing that audience, but how Jolie was particularly on edge, especially since wild rumors about the story provoked controversy during filming...“War is so complex, human nature is so complex. There’s no filmmaker who has ever figured it out perfectly,” she tells EW. “We just try to shed a light on one corner of something. And that, hopefully, makes you think of all the other corners you’re unable to see.”

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.”

On whether he Maleficent character is sympathetic to her, or is she a straight-up villain..."It’s both. I hope in the end you see a woman who is capable of being many things, and just because she protects herself and is aggressive, it doesn’t mean she can’t have other [warmer] qualities. You have to figure out the puzzle of what she is."

On causing quite a stir at this year's Oscars where it's usually a pretty stuffy affair, but she definitely widened people’s eyes...ANGELINA JOLIE: [Laughs] I don’t pay any attention to that stuff. I just heard something as simple as that and thought, well, I don’t know. I do what I feel like doing, but don’t actually consider the effect. I just try to, you know, be as I feel like being on a night like that."
