Angelina Jolie certainly doesn't look like the Mistress of All Evil...

But she does play the scary villain in Maleficent! The 38-year-old actress kicked off the press tour for the live-action Disney flick with a photo call in Paris Tuesday, looking fierce and sexy in a chic yet simple black ensemble.

Elle Fanning looked sweet and innocent next Angie. The 16-year-old actress plays Princess Aurora in the flick, and the younger version of Elle's character is played by Angelina and Brad Pitt's daughter Vivienne Jolie-Pitt.

Adorably, Angelina and Elle held hands at the photo call, laughing at something together despite their adversarial roles onscreen. But when Angelina was in character, she wasn't exactly a hit with everyone.

In fact, as she revealed at a D23 Expo in August, she was downright scary to some! "These little kids would visit the set, and I would think, 'Oh, I am a Disney character,' so I would go over to them, and say, 'Hi there,' " she said, per People. "They would just scream."

"One little kid even said, 'Mommy, please make the mean witch stop talking to me,'" she added.

But daughter co-star Vivienne "was the only 4-year-old who didn't scream when she saw me," said Angelina.

We'll get to see Angelina in all her horned glory—as well as sweet Elle and little Vivienne—when Maleficent hits theaters May 30.
