Angelina Jolie had play time on set

Angelina Jolie says making 'Maleficent' was like ''sharing play time'' with her children.

The 38-year-old actress - who raises kids Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, seven, and twins Knox and Vivienne, five, with fiance Brad Pitt - ''didn't realise'' how many of her past movies were unsuitable for family viewing until she started work on the reimagining of the 'Sleeping Beauty' story.

She told MailOnline: ''I didn't realise how many films I made that my kids can't see until I did this!

''Now I realise which ones but yes it's been so much fun to have something like this coming out where the kids are so excited and can come see it and they loved to be on set and they played in the fairy mound and they loved meeting Elle [Fanning] and Prince Charming and hanging out.

''So it was like just sharing this play time, which is of course what I do for a living but when it comes down to this level and this world, you can really share it with your kids and it was the greatest.''

Angelina also admitted she was ''very scared'' of taking on such an iconic character because she didn't want to ''disappoint'' anyone.

She said: ''I was very scared to take it on that I would disappoint the fans and I'm one of them, I was a big fan of hers when I was little and then when you get into it you just want to make sure you make some bold choices and there's no going back with a character like that.

''You just have to really think of the audience and really try to be as entertaining and as full on as possible so you don't disappoint and everyone has a good time watching the movie.''
