Angelina Jolie Says She Doesn’t Want To Do A Sexy Cleopatra

Sitting down with The Telegraph, Angelina Jolie discussed the  elements about the real Cleopatra that she wants to be part of the film, calling the Egyptian queen “very misunderstood.”

Jolie said she doesn’t want a glamorous beauty, instead wants to focus on the stronger parts of her personality mentioning that she was, “a very strong mother, she spoke five languages and she was a leader.”

Of course Jolie is ideal to play Cleopatra. Sure she will have to deal with the iconic Elizabeth Taylor and Jolie knows that. Jolie even admits that her performance won’t be “as lovely as Elizabeth’s” and won’t explore the character as a sex symbol.

But there is something that got me wondering of what Jolie said.

“Even this idea of her having many lovers – it was possible that it was only two. She is very interesting, but she wasn’t a great beauty.”

Then why choose a beautiful actress as Jolie?
