Posted on May 7, 2014
Angelina Jolie graces the cover of the June 2014 issue of Elle magazine. The cover was photographed by Hedi Slimane. Angelina's next big film is Maleficent, which arrives in theaters on May 30. In the Elle interview, Angelina discusses her 20s, which she says were misinterpreted as being rebellious. She also talks about her evolving relationship with Brad Pitt and why her daughter Vivienne was cast in Maleficent.
On Her 20s Being Misinterpreted as Rebellious: "And in fact it wasn't a need to be destructive or rebellious - it's that need to find a full voice, to push open the walls around you. You want to be free. And as you start to feel that you are being corralled into a certain life, you kind of push against it. It may come out very strange, it may be interpreted wrong, but you're trying to find out who you are."
On How Her Relationship With Brad Pitt Has Evolved: "You get together and you're two individuals and you feel inspired by each other, you challenge each other, you complement each other, drive each other beautifully crazy. After all these years, we have history - and when you have history with somebody, you're friends in such a very real, deep way that there's such a comfort, and an ease, and a deep love that comes from having been through quite a lot together."
On Casting Her Daughter Vivienne in Maleficent: "For young Aurora, they needed a child who wouldn't be fazed by the Mistress of All Evil hissing 'I donít like children' in her face. And my little Vivienne - we call her my shadow, because there's nothing I can do to shake her. I can be tired, I can be grumpy, I can be in a terrible mood, and she doesn't care. It's 'Mommy, Mommy,'... and she'll cling to me. We knew that she would still do that thing, she'd still smile at me and insist that I pick her up. So we couldn't really cast anybody else."
