Angelina Jolie Performs Sky-High Stunts On ‘Maleficent’ Set (PHOTOS)
After spending the weekend with her six children, the 37-year-old actress resumed filming on the set of her film Maleficent. Jolie clearly has no fear of flying, as this is the second time she’s been spotted on set doing her own stunts.
Donning a horned headdress and flowing costume for the fairytale film, the actress has expressed excitement in taking on the villainess role.
“I hope in the end you see a woman who is capable of being many things,” Jolie said. “And 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.”
The movie, not set to hit theaters until 2014, is the Sleeping Beauty story told from the perspective of the princess’ evil nemesis, Maleficent. Other celebs to star in Maleficent include Super 8 star Elle Fanning, 14, as Aurora/Sleeping Beauty; Juno Temple, 22, as Thistlewit; and Sam Riley, 32, as Diaval.
