Angelina Jolie finds it funny how people think she makes a great villain.

The 38-year-old actress appears as the titular wicked witch in 'Maleficent' and admits she was always drawn to the character when she was younger.

She told Entertainment Weekly magazine: ''It is really funny when people say you'd be obvious for a great villain. She was just my favourite as a little girl. I was terrified of her, but I was really drawn to her. I loved her.

''There were some discussions about it before I got the part, and I got a phonecall from my brother, who said, 'You've got to get your name on the list for this!''

The star raises six children with her fiance Brad Pitt - Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, seven, and twins Vivienne and Knox, five - and secretly told them the film's plot to gauge their reaction.

She added: ''I told my kids I was playing Maleficent and they said, 'She's so scary!' and I said, 'Let me tell you the real story, but you can't tell anybody.'

''And I put them in the room and I told them the [film's] story. So this was my test too, like any parent. And the next day I heard Shiloh getting into a fight with another kid, defending Maleficent, saying, 'You don't understand her!' They got into a bit of an argument and I thought, 'That's the reason to do the film.' ''
