Angelina Jolie says that she likes Sleeping Beauty but she prefers Maleficent. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly Angelina revealed that she sympathizes with the evil Maleficent. Angelina claims that she will play the role of Maleficent in the movie version of the classic fairytale, Sleeping Beauty, and that she will wear horns.
Entertainment Weekly has the interview: “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’s not anti-princess, but it’s the first time that they’re looking at this epic woman [in a different way],” she says of the new take on the fairy-tale classic.”
“You see a woman capable of being many things; 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.”
Jolie says there are redeeming qualities to her character, despite her ruthlessness.
“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.”
“We’re experimenting with different things,” Jolie says. “But the horns are the horns – you can’t deny them. You have to have horns.”
