As previously covered, Angelina Jolie’s daughter, Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, has been cast to play toddler Princess Aurora in Robert Stromberg’s upcoming film Maleficent. The first image of young Vivienne posing with Jolie’s Maleficent has hit the web, and it looks pretty dang cool. Every time I take the chance to study Jolie’s special effect makeup as “The Mistress of All Evil” it becomes more and more impressive; the subtly angled cheek bones and woven horns are especially beautiful, and seem all the more daunting in this new photo as she stands next to a small child.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jolie explained that Vivienne was cast as young Princess Aurora because other child actors were too afraid of her.
“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.”
Whatever the case may be, this new image of Maleficent hovering amongst the trees with a small Princess Aurora in toe looks superb.
Maleficent opens May 30th.[Source: Collider]
