Her first appearance since announcing she had surgery to remove her ovaries
Angelina Jolie gave the audience at the 2015 Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday a few words of inspiration after winning “Favorite Villain” for her role in Maleficent.
Here’s what the actress told her fans:
I want to say when I was little, like Maleficent, I was told that I was different—and I felt out of place, and too loud, too full of fire, never good at sitting still, never good at fitting in. And then one day I realized something, something I hope you all realize. Different is good.
The 39-year-old’s uplifting speech was her first public appearance since announcing last week that she had recently undergone surgery to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes.
Wrapping up her remarks to the crowd, she advised to “cause a little trouble, it’s good for you.”
