Angelina Jolie is all poise and confidence as the deliciously evil Maleficent, but the realities of making the ultimate fantasy are often times a very different story; Angelina reveals to ET's Rob Marciano that she was "very clumsy" learning to navigate her 7-plus-foot costume and those magnificent horns!
"At first, I was very clumsy and I did bang myself coming out [of the trailer], because I had heels and horns, so I was about 7-and-a-half-feet altogether," she says with a smile. "I did knock myself almost out, a few times, trying to leave the trailer and forgetting that I had them on my head. ... But then I worked it out."
The new live-action origin story of the deliciously cruel villain from Disney's animated classic Sleeping Beauty, Maleficent traces the betrayal that ultimately turned her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and to protect her moors, she places an irrevocable curse upon the king's newborn infant, Aurora, who grows to be caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy.
Also starring Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville, Maleficent opens in theaters on May 30.
