Profile of the Day: Angelina Jolie
Happy birthday, Angelina Jolie! Today the award winning star turns 39. She’s currently staring in Maleficent, a re-imagining of Disney’s classic Sleeping Beauty villain. Did you know that her daughter Vivienne plays a young Aurora in the movie? Many of the young children on set were so scared of Angelina’s portrayal of Maleficent that they were unable to perform the scene. Because of her physical resemblance to the character, and being the only child not afraid of Angelina, Vivienne was cast in the role, making this her film debut.
