Angelina Jolie won’t play characters unlike her

Angelina Jolie admits she can never see herself playing a character like Cinderella — a fairytale character who is transformed from a drudge to the belle of the ball by a fairy godmother — because it is nothing like how she is in real life. Angelina — who is raising six children with partner Brad Pitt — said: “The cleaning the floors or the knight in shining armor? I don’t know, I don’t think any of them sound like me.” The actress admitted she is mainly attracted to playing characters who are “vulnerable”, even though some of them seem tough. She explained: “I play women that I think are vulnerable. Like in ‘Girl, Interrupted’, I have a huge breakdown – very emotional, very unhappy, but she’s considered psychotic and a scary, tough woman.” While Angelina prefers “vulnerable” characters, a former bodyguard of the actress recently described her as “totally psycho.” He said: “Angelina has a public and a private persona. In my opinion, the real Angelina is self-centred and a control freak. She has no patience at all. She doesn’t do things out of the kindness of her heart. And she’s totally psycho. She screams and yells a lot, then walks away.”

    isnt that what acting is sposed to be, playing a character. regardless of how you are in real life? so much for professional.

    Great actresses play all kinds of roles. The ones who only play certain roles are considered limited. Limited actors are not great actors.

    Don’t be stupid saying first or second. just say your own mind.If you can’t just walk off without leaving comment.
    In addition she is a great actress.I happen to like her movies. She really lifts the movies up!! Not let down like Jennifer Aniston. Jennifer’s movies are all the same and boring. Not Angelina’s!!!!!!!!

    well, stupid is comparing Jolie’s movies to Jenn’s…that’s soooooooo yesterday…

    why not compare her to really great actresses – Streep, Mirren, Blanchett, Dench, Winslet, Foster, Sarandon….oh yeah, I know why…
