Angelina Jolie wows Oscar rehearsal actors
February 28, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — To the world, she’s a humanitarian, superstar actress and half of Hollywood’s most glamorous couple.

But to the workers who met Angelina Jolie Thursday at Oscar rehearsals, she was just “Angie.”

The 38-year-old Oscar winner, who was honored with the film academy’s Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award last year, came to the Dolby Theatre to run through the lines she’ll say in front of millions on Sunday. Afterward, she hung around chatting to show producers and introduced herself as “Angie” to a group of college students serving as trophy carriers this year.

“You’ll help make the night a fun night,” she said warmly to the star-struck students. One told her, “You were great out there.”

“I didn’t fall!” Jolie replied with a smile, confessing that the silver peep-toe pumps she paired with capri pants and a sweater for the rehearsal are her actual show-day shoes.

“After you’ve done this a few times, you learn to wear the shoes you’re going to present in,” she said.

She also learned she needed the teleprompter text to be made a bit larger.

“I used to wear glasses,” she said.

Jolie presented an award on stage, and when a rehearsal actor stepped up to claim it, she gave him a hug.

“For this rehearsal only,” he said, “I am one lucky bastard.”
