Angelina Jolie says she went "nuts" while preparing for her negative role in Disney's Maleficent as it involved screaming at bushes and trying to scare her children with her costume and voice.
The 38-year-old actress enjoyed playing the villainous fairy in the
children's classic and would bring her scary costume home to practice
for her role, reported Entertainment Weekly.
"I loved being Maleficent. I was quite sad to put my staff down and put
my horns away because somehow, she just lives in a different world,"
"But I did have to take my staff home to practice walking with it in my
cloak, and then I would go outside and scream at the bushes to expand my
voice and play with my voice. So, mom was a bit 'nutso' for a period."
Describing her character in the film, Angelina said the role demanded
something that she has never done before.
"Maleficent was always so elegant. She always was in control. And to
play her was difficult. I worked on my voice a lot. She's bigger than
me. She's on a different level of performance that I have never done.
She's very still. "
"She's very sure of herself, but I couldn't figure out her voice, I kept
playing with these different types of British voices, making my voice
darker and scarier."
Angelina's daughter Vivienne plays young Princess Aurora, while Pax and
Zahara both play prince and princess from foreign lands.
