    Was Angelina Jolie worried about playing her latest part in Maleficent?

    E! News caught up with the actress at the red carpet premiere last night where she admitted she was a bit nervous to take on the role.

    "I've never done anything this big," she exclusively told Giuliana Rancic. "I'm not really a theater actress and I'm not a comedian. I had to decide to just play and really do my best to just think of the fans and try to entertain and be silly and be what they needed me to be."

    She continued, "That's a really nice change, because you get out of your head and you remember that you're the court jester, you're there just to simply make a fool of yourself or not and hope that people enjoy it."

    The Oscar-winning actress also gushed about Brad Pitt, who was on hand for support last night, saying that he approved of her rubberized Versace gown.

    "He's a lovely man, he likes me in my pajamas, he's supportive no matter what stage I'm in," she said while blushing.

    And speaking of Brangelina, how will the couple spend Jolie's upcoming 39th birthday on June 4?

    "We leave our birthdays up to each other, so you'd have to ask Brad," she admitted to us.

    Jolie touched upon how she and her hubby-to-be balance raising their six children with their jam-packed successful careers.

    "We do everything like everybody else. I'm sure we have a slightly different life, but certainly when it comes to our children…We love our kids and we try to do our best and, like all parents, we hope we are and worry that we're not."
