Angelina Jolie not only treated her daughters to a day of fun at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards, she also delivered an uplifting message to kids in the audience and beyond.

After taking the stage to accept the favorite villain award for her lead role in Maleficent Saturday, the Oscar winner said, "When I was little, like Maleficent, I was told that I was different. And I felt out of place -- too loud, too full of fire, never good at sitting still, never good at fitting in."

"And, then one day I realized something, something that I hope you all realize: Different is good," she said, as kids screamed and cheered in the background. "And, as your villain, I would also say cause a little trouble -- it's good for you."
Nickelodeon's 28th Annual Kids' Choice Awards - ShowAngelina not only empowered young people at the event, but she also has been inspiring women with her recent New York Times op-ed, in which she revealed she removed her ovaries and fallopian tubes after a recent cancer scare.

"It is not possible to remove all risk, and the fact is I remain prone to cancer," she wrote. "I will look for natural ways to strengthen my immune system. I feel feminine, and grounded in the choices I am making for myself and my family. I know my children will never have to say, "Mom died of ovarian cancer."
