Posted Wednesday March 5, 2014 11:10 AM GMT

During promotions for "Maleficent," Angelina Jolie garnered herself a little added exposure by covering the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine.

While dressed as the evil sorceress from the well-known "Sleeping Beauty" tale, the 38-year-old actress opened up about becoming the iconic villain and shared details about her double mastectomy.

"It is really funny when people say you'd be obvious for a good villain," Angelina explained. "The exercise wasn't how can we have fun with a villain? It was: What turns people evil and vile and aggressive and cruel? What could have possibly happened to her?"

In regards to her cancer worries that led to her preventative surgery last year, Miss Jolie stated, "Wherever I go, usually I run into women and we talk about health issues, women's issues, breast cancer, ovarian cancer. I've talked to men about their daughters' and wives' health."

"It makes me feel closer to other people who deal with the same things and have either lost their parents or are considering surgeries or wondering about their children. I was very, very moved by all the support and kindness from so many people," she added.
