Hollywood’s ‘WANTED’ actress also brought her children, Shiloh and Zahara at the event who stole the show which seats 17,500 screaming kids.
“When I was little, like Maleficent, I was told that I was different. And I felt out of place — too loud, too full of fire, never good at sitting still, never good at fitting in,” she said in her speech.

“And, then one day I realized something, something that I hope you all realize: Different is good,” she said, prompting enthusiastic screams from the young crowd. “And, as your villain, I would also say cause a little trouble — it’s good for you.”
Actor, filmmaker and special envoy of the U.N.’s High Commissioner for Refugees Angelina Jolie was nominated for Favorite Movie Actress but the trophy was carried by he Amazing Spider-Man 2’s Emma Stone.
She is still up for Favorite Villain for her work in Maleficent, which is also nominated for Favorite Movie. This was the first public appearance of Angelina Jolie since revealing that she underwent a second preventive surgery to lower her risk of cancer.
She has had surgery to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes to cut her cancer risk two years after she underwent a double mastectomy.
“This surgery decision is more straightforward than the decision to have the breasts removed”, she wrote in an op-ed in the New York Times.
“It is not easy to make these decisions,” the movie director and philanthropist, who is the wife of actor Brad Pitt and the mother of six children, Angelina Jolie writes.
“I went through what I imagine thousands of other women have felt,” Jolie wrote. “I told myself to stay calm, to be strong, and that I had no reason to think I wouldn’t live to see my children grow up and to meet my grandchildren.”
“I feel feminine, and grounded in the choices I am making for myself and my family,” said Angelina Jolie, who travels the globe as a United Nations ambassador for refugees. “I know my children will never have to say, ‘Mom died of ovarian cancer.’”
According to The Guardian, her New York Times column encourages more women to have genetic testing for the disease and possibly the same surgery.
