Angelina Jolie is about to play Cleopatra (director David Fincher) but she acknowledges that her ‘Cleo’ may never be like Elizabeth Taylor…who did not give Angie her blessing to play the role…that’s sad!

Although Angelina was hand-picked for the role, apparently before her death Elizabeth wasn’t too happy about it and rejected Angelina’s attempts to get her blessings for the movie.

In an interview with The Telegraph she graciously noted, “My performance will never be as lovely as Elizabeth’s.”

As for the role itself, the Oscar winner is going to focus on brains over beauty. “We are trying to get into a different truth about her as a pharaoh in history and not as 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.”

Cleopatra is expected to hit theaters in two years.
