Who could you possibly cast to play a young Angelina Jolie in Maleficent? Meet Ella Purnell. The 17-year-old starlet is featured in the summer issue of V magazine, where she opens up about her role in the Disney flick. "There's a joke in my family that I'm going to make a career out of playing other people's younger selves," she laughs. "I played the younger Keira [Knightley] and now I'm playing the younger Angelina. I mean, it's a good track record, right?"
