Angelina Jolie promises a completely different Cleopatra from that played by Elizabeth Taylor

Angelina Jolie says she wants to play the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra in an entirely different way from the movie with Elizabeth Taylor in 1963, arguing that she could never be as “lovely” as her famous predecessor.

“I will play it differently to Elizabeth Taylor, but I could never be as lovely as she was.”

“We are trying to uncover the truth about her as a leader and not just a sex symbol which she really wasn’t – she didn’t have many lovers, maybe only two, and they’re men she had children with”, said Jolie.

Angelina Jolie confessed that she always admired Cleopatra and was stunned by the things she learned about the famous Egyptian Queen when she began to prepare for this role.

“She was misunderstood and her life story was written wrongly. I always thought her life was very glamorous. Then I read her story and found a different side to her – that she was a mother, leader and an intellect who spoke five languages! Her upbringing also reflected her relationship with Rome – all that is much more interesting than what she was summed up to be.”
