Angelina Jolie looks menacing as Maleficent—especially when she's staring down Princess Aurora. Walt Disney Pictures has released the first official movie still of the 38-year-old actress sharing the screen with her 5-year-old daughter Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, who makes a cameo as the younger version of Elle Fanning's character. "We think it's fun for our kids to have cameos and join us on set, but not to be actors. That's not our goal for [Brad Pitt] and I at all," Jolie, who has five more kids, recently told Entertainment Weekly. "But 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. »
On Monday we brought you a couple of posters for the upcoming live-action Sleeping Beauty retelling Maleficent featuring Angelina Jolie as the Mistress of All Evil, and now Disney has released a batch of new images from the film, which you can check out right here...
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, »

Angelina Jolie continues to share the brave story of her decision to get a preventative double mastectomy with fans. In a new interview with EW, the Oscar-winning actress, who went under the knife in May 2013 because she was at a very high risk of developing breast cancer, revealed her that her mission to stay healthy is far from over. "There's still another surgery to have, which I haven't yet," the Maleficent actress explained. "I'll, you know, I'll get advice from all these wonderful people who've I've been talking to, to get through the next stage." In addition to her previous risk of breast cancer, Jolie also has approximately a 50 percent risk (the actual number »
I’m super excited about seeing Maleficent, but I’m sort of counting on it being just outside of the kind of fun my kids would enjoy, and I’m hoping for something a little creepier than a fairy tale, but where you’ve got sympathy for a character you might have previously misunderstood. These two new posters are fabulous, though I wish the second one had been expanded to include the horns, because Horns.
And following those two posters is the charming picture of mother (Jolie) and daughter (Vivienne Jolie-Pitt) together on the set in character as witch and little princess. Here’s what Angelina Jolie said to EW about casting her young daughter.

Many of us worship celebrities for their tremendous acting capabilities, endearing personalities and their flawless good looks, but is there more to idolize? Of course! So many celebrities boast more than beautiful faces…they boast beautiful hearts. And yes, we’re getting mushy on you. Nothing makes a star more attractive than a generous soul, and that doesn’t only include the infamously giving couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. From Taylor Swift‘s $100,000 birthday donation to Meryl Streep‘s $2 million giveaway, many celebs have more than talent and charm to garner respect from the masses.
Let’s take a moment to praise these guys for their commendable acts of goodness and focus on The Most Generous Celebs Around. But be mindful – you might want to get out a box of tissues (and maybe an ice pack for when your jaw drops to the floor) – some of »

Everyone has a regrettable first job or two, but how many of you took photos in your hideous fast food uniforms? Celebrities are people, too, and that means there are at least one or two embarrassing skeletons in their closet. Sure, Angelina Jolie would rather talk about saving the world or adopting another child, but before Billy Bob and Girl Interrupted she was just another Los Angeles teen with model shots burning a hole in her messenger bag. And she’s not alone!
In 1998 current Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon was the hot new thing on Saturday Night Live–so much so that Calvin Klein hired him to play the role of “mysteriously aloof slash bloated handsome dude” in an ad campaign. But whose vintage pics are the most embarrassing? Well, that’s up for debate.

While talking to Ok! Magazine, the 50-year-old actor admitted that he enjoys watching the kids getting older and learning more, Contactmusic reported.
The 'World War Z' star asserted that all parents have to do is just give their kids a little inspiration and encouragement and the next thing you know, they're reading everything they can about a subject.
When they try and show you how much they've learnt, it is really beautiful,. »

Remember when there was a rumor that The Fantastic Four's version of Doctor Doom (aka Victor von Doom) might be a woman? Well, if a new casting shortlist is to be believed, it looks like that rumor doesn't hold water. The villainous role has apparently been narrowed down to these four blokes: Sam Riley (On the Road), Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables), Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans), or Domhnall Gleeson (About Time). Whoever ends up with the part, it's going to be a 30-something actor from the U.K. who goes up against Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell in the title roles. Hit the jump for more. As The Wrap reports, Riley, Redmayne, Kebbell, and Gleeson are (fittingly) the final four for the role of The Fantastic Four foe of Doctor Doom. Jack Huston was also reported as being in the mix weeks ago, »

“Maleficent” is 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. Disney's Maleficent is being directed by Robert Stromberg, based on a screenplay by Paul Dini and Linda Woolverton. The film stars: Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, »
Although Disney have been releasing a decent amount of images and a beautifully dark trailer for Maleficent, they’re still managing to not show everything about the film as a whole – despite what we obviously know – and this makes it quite intriguing for me at the moment.
The film stars Angelina Jolie as the villainous Maleficent, as they tell the story of the events that hardened her heart and drove her to curse young Princess Aurora. These new images give us another look at the mighty Jolie, plus Sharlto Copley as Stefan and the truly stunning-looking environment that’s been created by Director Robert Stromberg, a man who’s also been behind the visuals of Pan’S Labyrinth, The Hunger Games, The Golden Compass and Life Of Pi – so he knows how to make things look pretty special.

All the Disney Villains I Was Uncomfortably Attracted to as a Child In honor of Angelina Jolie's improbably hot Maleficent. By Molly Fitzpatrick On May 30, Angelina Jolie will bring a sexy twist to Maleficent, Disney's upcoming Sleeping Beauty reboot, as the Mistress of All Evil herself. Like Annie Hall's Alvy Singer and his fixation on Snow White's evil stepmother, I've always found myself drawn to the baddies — here are the classic Disney villains who most memorably aroused my prepubescent attention. 7. Ursula The Bbw of the deep blue sea. Originally inspired by the drag queen Divine, girlfriend is large and in charge. Yeah, yeah, yeah, she may be evil, but — no offense, Ariel — I always thought this voluptuous, flamboyant sea-bitch was vastly more interesting than her goody two-shoes ginger counterpart. You done goofed, Prince Eric. 6. Captain Hook Sorry, but Jack Sparrow has never been anything [...] »

Disney has a long and storied history of creating some of the scariest villains ever to invade a small child’s nightmares. The evil fairy Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty is arguably the finest of these villains, marrying basic cackling malevolence to the ability to transform into a dragon, lay curses upon unsuspecting children, and threaten entire kingdoms. So, it’s no wonder that Maleficent has become the latest subject for revamping, getting her own film and her own celebrity impersonator in the form of Angelina Jolie.
With the release date for Maleficent only a few months away, Disney is ramping up the marketing campaign centered around its magnificent and malevolent leading lady. To this end, they have released two more posters featuring Angelina Jolie gazing into your soul. The first U.S. poster is fairly standard, with our devilish diva front and center and nothing else to distract the eye from her pretty terrifying countenance. »

Tattoos are hot. They just are. Good ink can make almost anything sexy — a wrist, the top of a foot, aging rock stars (kidding). And in the past year or so, tats have totally become zeitgeisty, thanks to the popularity of shows like VH1′s Black Ink Crew; Spike TV’s Ink Master and Tattoo Rescue; and Oxygen’s Best Ink and Tattoos After Dark.
Celebs are jumping on the bandwagon, too, covering their A-list bods in every Sanskrit quote, rose incarnation, and litany of children’s names they can think of. Some try to hid them on the red carpet with heavy body makeup or clever draping, but others, like Megan Fox and Rihanna, proudly let their tat flag fly. These are the ones we love!

Maleficent has released a new poster online, showing off Angelina Jolie in all her sinister glory as the titular antiheroine. The new poster is a simple and straightforward affair, putting Jolie front and centre in her be-horned costume, as she manages to pull off sexy and scary in one fell swoop. Special mention should also go to the Jolie cheekbones, which look sharp enough to draw blood on their own without her taking recourse to those claw-like fingers. The new film will tell the story of just how Maleficent came to be such...

London, Mar.11: A new survey has revealed that British women prefer their men to tower above them by five inches just like the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
The new study by the adult intimate retailer 'Lovehoney' has asserted that stature of a potential partner is more important to women than it is to men, Daily Star reported.
At 6ft 3in, Prince William is exactly five inches taller than his 5ft 10in wife Catherine which makes them the perfect height match. Other celebrity couples that come close include Brad Pitt (5ft 11in) and Angelina Jolie (5ft 7in) and Daniel Craig (5ft 10in) and Rachel Weisz (5ft 6in).
