Talk about method acting! Angelina Jolie has admitted to frightening real children while in character as Maleficent for her upcoming movie.
Speaking to fans at the Anaheim D23 convention, Jolie stated: “The strange thing was people with little kids would visit the set and I would think ‘I’m a Disney character’! I’d go over to the children and say hi and they would scream and run off. One little boy actually said ‘Mommy, tell the mean witch to please stop talking to me’!” Before showing footage of the 2014 film, Angelina admitted that working alongside her daughter, Vivienne, made the acting experience easier and more enjoyable. “She was the only 4 year old who wouldn’t scream,” Jolie said.
Maleficent is slated for release 2nd July, 2014.
