Angelina Jolie surprised journalists at the UK press launch for Maleficent. When asked by reporters whether the drag community would draw inspriation from the evil fairy Maleficent, Angelina replied, ‘I would be thrilled if it’s embraced by the drag queens. I think we all share a love of this kind of costume. I’m with them!’
Maleficent tells the story of the titular character – a dark sorceress and shapeshifter who is the primary antagonist of Disney’s Sleeping Beauty.
On a related note, Hollyscoop has questioned Angelina’s ‘weave’ – claiming the original Maleficent, in Disney’s cartoon, had her horns in a different position to those of Angelina’s Maleficent.
