In The First Wives Club, Goldie Hawn’s character sagely notes that there are only three ages for women in Hollywood: “Babe, District Attorney, and Driving Ms. Daisy.” These days, in the era of the big-budget tentpole, you could probably change the first two to “Superhero Love Interest” and “Fairy Tale Villainess” (the third would be “Cable Drama Lead,” natch), and the second category has gotten quite the workout lately, with Charlize Theron, Julia Roberts, and Helena Bonham Carter all giving villainy a go. But really, isn’t it all just a prelude to the perfect casting of Angelina Jolie in Maleficent? To announce today’s start of production on the revisionist Sleeping Beauty take, Disney sent out the first photo of Jolie in costume, and it’s a horny photo indeed. You like?
