Angelina Jolie got in touch with the evil side of her “Maleficent” role while filming, which included pranking her co-stars.
Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson caught up with actor Sharlto Copley at the “Elysium” junket where he dished on working with Angelina in the Disney big screen story of the “Sleeping Beauty” villain.
“It was amazing. We pranked each other like crazy,” the actor, who plays Stefan, in the Disney movie said.
“She is a very serious prankster,” he continued, but stopped short of saying just how the star messed with the South African actor, who audiences might best know from “District 9.”
“It is so intense and so controversial that I probably can’t [reveal what she did],” she told Shaun. “That’s how intense it was.
“The gloves were off. We had an amazing time, two crazy people, doing crazy pranks. We got on super well and had a great time,” the actor recalled. “I was like, ‘Oh my God, she went there?! OK, that opens the door for me to go there!”
Shooting on the pair’s Disney movie is over, however, the pranks might not be.
“I don’t know if the pranking is over yet, but I think she’ll admit that I won,” he said with a smile.
Catch Sharlto in “Elysium,” with Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, on August 9.
