Elle spoke with Us Weekly and sang the praises of Angelina Jolie. The 16 year old gushed, “It’s kind of a dream to say that you even met her and let alone to be in scenes with her. It was really really cool!”
Jolie also revealed that her kids thought she was a bit crazy as he practiced strutting with her staff and preparing for the role. “I did have to take my staff home to practice walking with it in my cloak,” Jolie admitted. “Then I would go outside and scream at the bushes to expand my voice and play with my voice. So, mom was a bit nutso for a period.“
You can catch Elle and Angelina’s finished project as it is set for release on May 30, 2014.
