MALEFICENT: Angelina Jolie Covers Latest Issue Of EW
The upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly features a brand new shot of Jolie as the iconic Disney villain, Maleficent. There's also a new still and the first ever in-depth interview with the actress about the role, which you can read a snippet from after the jump.
“The exercise wasn’t how can we have fun with a villain?” Jolie tells the mag. “It was: What turns people evil and vile and aggressive and cruel? What could have possibly happened to her?” The new issue is out this Friday so be sure to pick up a copy for the rest of the interview.
From Disney comes “Maleficent”—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.
Maleficent stars Angelina Jolie, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville. The film is produced by Joe Roth and directed by Robert Stromberg, with Angelina Jolie, Don Hahn, Matt Smith, Palak Patel and Sarah Bradshaw serving as executive producers. Linda Woolverton wrote the screenplay. Maleficent opens in theaters on May 30, 2014.
