Watch Angelina Jolie's Moving Speech At The Kids’ Choice Awards
In her first public appearance since revealing her second preventative surgery to reduce her cancer risk, Angelina Jolie made the best speech of the night at the Kids' Choice Awards on Nickelodeon.
After winning "Favorite Villain" for her role in Maleficent on Saturday, the actress and filmmaker hugged the two of her kids she brought with her, Shiloh and Zahara, and then delivered the young audience a brief message of hope to anyone who's ever felt out of place.
Here's what she said:
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.So, don’t fit in. Don’t sit still. Don’t ever try to do less than you are. When somebody tells you you’re different, smile and hold your head up high and be proud.
As always, the 39-year-old mother of six appeared steadfast in her message, taking care to let every word marinate with the audience.
Wrapping up her remarks, as a sly smile crept onto her face, she told the crowd, "And as your villain, I would also say — cause a little trouble. It’s good for you.”
