Angelina Jolie tells UK's The Telegraph that Invisible Children has "been a wonderful movement for a long time," and she supports their KONY 2012 video raising awareness. While at the Third Annual Women In The World Summit last week in New York, she also remarked that she doesn't know anyone who doesn't hate Ugandan guerilla leader Kony; he's "an extraordinarily horrible human being and his time has come."

In the 2010 interview below, Jolie tells Nightline she hates Kony, and left in a room with him would try to take him down. She is one of the culture makers that the KONY 2012 video (74 million views and counting) calls out to help spread the word and demand Kony's arrest (others include Oprah, Mark Zuckerberg, Rihanna, George Clooney and Bono). But it's a complicated issue.

Meanwhile, Jolie's next film, her first live-action acting gig since 2010's "The Tourist," is confirmed: long-gestating "Maleficent," a new take on "Sleeping Beauty" told from the sorceress's perspective, kicks off production in London this June. Robert Stromberg will direct from Linda Woolverton's script. This will be Stromberg's directorial debut; he was the production designer on "Avatar" and "Alice in Wonderland." Elle Fanning is in talks to play Sleeping Beauty.
