We’re all looking forward to seeing Angelina Jolie in Maleficent, right? The makeup and costuming are great, since she pretty much looks like something straight out of your worst nightmare, so I’m into it. Incidentally, her 4-year-old daughter Vivienne Jolie-Pitt is, as well – and she seems to be the only one.
Producers were looking to cast a young Princess Aurora in the movie, but unfortunately, all the kids were too terrified to come anywhere near Angelina while she was in costume, so that wasn’t really going to work. Luckily, Vivienne didn’t mind too much!
From Entertainment Weekly:
“The other 3- and 4-year-old [performers] wouldn’t come near me. It had to be a child that liked me and wasn’t afraid of my horns and my eyes and my claws. So it had to be Viv.”
“The exercise wasn’t ‘how can we have fun with a villain?’ It was ‘what turns people evil and vile and aggressive and cruel? What could have possibly happened to her?’”
Sounds good to me. However, what really sounds the best is the fact that MAC is going to be coming out with a Maleficent-inspired makeup collection this year. That’s almost more exciting than the movie itself. That lipstick!
