Angelina Jolie feels 'dull'

May 26th, 2014

Angelina Jolie thinks she looks ''dull'' after playing Maleficent.

The 38-year-old actress donned prosthetics to transform the shape of her face to play the titular wicked fairy in the 'Sleeping Beauty' reimagining and admits it made her feel ''flat'' when she returned to her normal self after filming finished.

She said: ''It was quite important she didn't look traditionally pretty.

''What's now strange is when I go home for the weekend, I feel like my face is really flat - I feel very dull in comparison to her. She's so much more fun.''

The brunette beauty - who raises children Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, seven, and five-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with fiancé Brad Pitt - says starring in the movie taught her a lot about ''being a woman''.

She told Stylist magazine: ''I've learned more about being a woman. She's very complicated, she wasn't born evil.

''She was born very soft and female in a way that a lot of women will be able to relate to but then she was abused in a way.

''We've all had that experience where something has made us put our wall up and fell like, in order to survive, we need to become tougher.''
