Angelina Jolie, who will reprise her role for an upcoming sequel to the Disney villain origin story Maleficent, recently revealed she was initially intimidated by the thought of playing Sleeping Beauty’s nemesis.

“When I knew I was going to Maleficent I thought, ‘I have to train, I’m not good enough. I’m not ready,’” she said during Toronto International Film Festival.

“The accent and everything about her was discovered when I was giving my kids baths,” she said.

“I think I tried 17 different things on them. They would say, ‘What are you doing? Mom, stop talking so weird.’ One day I just got really nutty and did (the voice) and they fell over laughing. I did it all night long and I finally found it.”

Maleficent 2 would mark her first onscreen appearance since her 2015 role in By the Sea.

The Academy Award winner and her kids were at The Toronto Film Festival for the premiere of The Breadwinner, an animated film about an Afghani girl’s struggle which she produced.
