Angelina Jolie makes first post-surgery appearance at Kids' Choice Awards
The actress gave insight into her misfit youth as she delivered a speech at the ceremony
Angelina Jolie made her first appearance on Saturday night at the 2015 Kids' Choice Awards in Los Angeles only days after she revealed that she had her ovaries surgically removed.
The actress gave insight into her misfit youth as she delivered a speech at the ceremony, during which she received the “Best Villain” award for her role as Maleficent.
“When I was a kid I was told - like Maleficent - that I was different,” Angelina said as quoted by the British Daily Mail.
“But then I realized something: different is good. So maybe you don't fit in. Be yourself.
“And when someone tells you that you are different just smile and hold your head up, and be proud,” she said as she received the award.
“And as your villain,” the actress added, “I would say, ‘Cause a little trouble. It is good for you!’”
Angelina received hugs from her two daughters, Shiloh and Zahara, upon hearing that she was the winner for favorite villain.
The 39-year-old actress recently announced that she has undergone a surgery to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes so that she could lower her risk of cancer and stay healthy for her family.
