Transcript for 'Maleficent: Mistress of Evil' star Michelle Pfeiffer spills secrets on her new role
We are back now with Oscar nominated actress Michelle Pfeiffer who was stuing audiences in "Maleficent: Mistress of evil." Welcome to Michelle Pfeiffer, everybody. First of all, so exciting that Thank you. We'll jump straight into "Maleficent." You play a villainous queen. I do. It was a lot of fun. Do you like playing good or evil? Well, you like to shake it up a bit so -- but I would say if I had to make a generalization it's probably more fun to play Ooh, okay. And any time you're a queen of good or evil I bow down to you, queen. Tell us more about your character. I play ingrith, kind of allstead and she is somewhat damaged and proves to be a worthy adversary of maleficent and we come face-to-face and I am also the future mother-in-law of Aurora. Oh, wow. A lot going on there. And we're going to take a quick look at a clip. We'll take a look at a clip of Michele fliefr in "Maleficent." I remember the story of a baby, a baby cursed to sleep and never wake up. Really? Who would do such a terrible thing to an innocent child? Well, there are many who prey on the innocent. I'm sure your kind would agree. What do you mean my kind? She means humans. Ooh. That was a little icy, a little icy exchange right there. A little tense? A little tense. A little tense. You say the first time you saw Angelina Jolie on set it took your breath away. It did. You show up -- it's a long process getting hair and makeup and getting ready for these types of film, prosthetics and wigs and all types of things so you show up for rehearsal in the morning and everyone is half done. And so I hadn't really seen her fully in all of her glory and it was the scene where my character actually sees her for the first time and the doors open and there she is and it's stunning. And I just thought, imagine this walking into your dining room. I mean, so I didn't really have to act much. And after four decades in Hollywood, you say that catwoman is your favorite role. Well, I've -- It's one of your favorite. One of them. You've had incredible roles AAS we all know but Zoe Kravitz is going to take over that role. I just found out. So excited. Any advice for her. Make sure whilst designing the costume they consider how you're going to go to the bathroom. Okay. Minor detail. Minor detail. That's not what I was thinking you were going to say but that's a great piece of advice. It's an important one. Very important. It's important for people to go out and check out this movie. That is right. "Maleficent: Mistress of evil" is in theaters on Friday. Big thank you to Michelle Pfeiffer.
