LOS ANGELES (BFT): Angelina Jolie has admitted she was scared of the role of Maleficent. The Salt star felt some trepidation about taking on the role of Sleeping Beauty’s evil fairy because she worried she could not live up to Eleanor Audley, who voiced the character in the original 1959 Disney film. ‘I was quite afraid to do it because I thought the first one was done so perfectly. When I was young I thought she was so cool, so elegant and powerful and had such a great voice,’ she said.
