In the past she has been known for her intrigue with the dark side - with a fetish for blood and a huge collection of knives.
But now that she is a mother to six children, it is a more family friendly Halloween these days for Angelina Jolie.
The 37-year-old actress was seen rounding up some of her brood, including Shiloh, six, and twins Vivienne and Knox, four, for a trip to Party City in Sherman Oaks to shop for Halloween supplies on Sunday.
And the children certainly got into the Halloween spirit.
Little Vivienne looked cute in a black ruffled skirt worn over lace leggings, a black T-shirt and some fancy gold sneakers on her feet.
But the real standout accessory was her pink unicorn soft toy, which strapped around the youngster's body.
Vivienne wasn't the only one treated with a toy, her twin brother Knox was seen carrying a large dinosaur figurine.
The little lad looked dapper for the shopping expedition in a grey coloured shirt, black trousers and black shoes.
The brunette stunner slipped her very slender frame into a simple shift dress which she paired with some nude coloured flats.
The near make-up free star tied her hair back into a simple ponytail and shielded her eyes with some sunglasses.
Also dressed all in black like her mother was Shiloh, who wore a buttoned down shirt and shorts combination.
The six-year-old little girl wore flip-flops on her feet and a pair of sunglasses tucked into her shirt.
After shopping up a storm in the store, the family headed back to their black SUV to head home.
They were accompanied by a bodyguard who carried the family's parcels.
And two of Angelina's other six children, whom she shares with fiance Brad Pitt - Pax and Zahara - will also make their big-screen debuts in the film.
'They have smaller parts,' a source told Us Weekly, adding the eight-year-old boy and seven-year-old girl will not have speaking roles.
'Shiloh was supposed to be in it, too, but she was bored and not in the mood during the day her part was supposed to happen, so she ended up not being in the film.'
The tomboyish six-year-old did, however, have a role as her father Brad's daughter in his film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button back in 2008.
The focus of the film centres on the events that hardened Maleficent's heart, leading her to curse the Princess Aurora played by Elle Fanning.
Back in August, The Sun reported that once Vivienne was cast as the younger version of 14-year-old Fanning, the rest of the kids wanted to be included too.
'Ange thought it would be a fun experience for her and Viv to share, and Viv is a natural,' said the source.
'The other kids are now nagging Ange and Brad to land them roles.'
Both of the the twins Vivienne and Knox were spotted visiting their famous mother on the set back in June and at one point Angelina held one of them in front of the soundstage's green screen.
The next day, Pax and Shiloh were seen walking around the Buckinghamshire set with a minder.
Wearing her horned headdress, complete with prosthetic cheekbones and a long brown dress and matching cape, the dark-haired star looked frightening as the villain.
Speaking about her new film Angelina told EW: 'It’s not anti-princess, but it’s the first time they’re looking at this epic woman.
'I hope in the end you see a woman who is capable of being many things, and just because she protects herself and is aggressive, it doesn’t mean she can’t have other [warmer] qualities'
She said: 'It sounds really crazy to say that there will be something that’s good for young girls in this, because it sounds like you’re saying they should be a villain. [Maleficent] is actually a great person. But she’s not perfect. She’s far from perfect.
Juno Temple, Sam Riley, and Miranda Richardson also appear in the film directed by Robert Stromberg, which is set for release on March 14, 2014.
Meanwhile, according to the New York Daily News, the Jolie-Pitt clan have gotten into the autumn spirit as recent aerial shots of the A-list couple's Los Feliz home revealed a backyard table packed with Halloween pumpkins.
Jolie and Pitt, 48, also have an 11-year-old son named Maddox.
