Undeniably sexy lady Angelina Jolie says that when she plays Cleopatra in the upcoming film about the pharaoh’s life, she will not play her as a sexy sex symbol. Is that even possible? For the sexiest sexy woman to play unsexy? We’ll see. Angie says: “[Cleopatra] has been very misunderstood… I thought it was all about the glamour, but then I read about her and she was a very strong mother, she spoke five languages and she was a leader.” Sexelina also says: “My performance will never be as lovely as Elizabeth [Taylor]’s. We are trying to get into a different truth about her as a pharaoh in history and not a sex symbol, because she really wasn’t. Even this idea of her having many lovers – it was possible that it was only two. She is very interesting, but she wasn’t a great beauty.” Pre-production of the film begins this summer.

I love that I can have children. I love feeling soft, I love being with Brad, I love all the sensitivity and natural emotion.” [Stella/Telegraph]
