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."
Angelina 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."
