Hollywood star Angelina Jolie finds it funny when people say that her negative role in Disney's upcoming film Maleficent would be great.

The 38-year-old Mr and Mrs Smith actress, who appears as the titular wicked witch in Maleficent, said she was tempted to play the character from a very long time, reported Contact Music.

"It is really funny when people say you'd be obvious for a great villain. She (Maleficent) was just my favourite as a little girl. I was terrified of her, but I was really drawn to her. I loved her," Jolie said.

"There were some discussions about it before I got the part, and I got a phone call from my brother, who said, 'You've got to get your name on the list for this!," she added. Jolie, with her partner Brad Pitt, raises six children -Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and twins Vivienne and Knox.

The actress secretly revealed the film's plot to her kids in order to gauge their reaction. "I told my kids I was playing Maleficent and they said, 'She's so scary!' and I said, 'Let me tell you the real story, but you can't tell anybody.' And I put them in the room and I told them the story. So this was my test too, like any parent. And the next day I heard Shiloh getting into a fight with another kid, defending Maleficent, saying, 'You don't understand her!' They got into a bit of an argument and I thought, 'That's the reason to do the film," Jolie said.
