Angelina Jolie wasn’t one of the many celebrities to post her Halloween costume on Instagram, but her Eternals co-star Gemma Chan did the world a favor and shared a photo of Jolie’s look on her behalf. Chan posted a series of throwback photos from the Eternals cast’s Halloween party. Jolie was a giraffe in a rare, intimate look at the actress off-duty:
Jolie spoke to ELLE for its November 2021 issue about how the women of Eternals cast—Chan, Jolie, Salma Hayek, and Lauren Ridloff—became like family on set.
“A lot of times as an actress, you’re that individual strong woman, or you have one sister; you don’t often have this family where you really get to know women and see all the different strengths,” Jolie started. “Gemma’s grace and elegance and the way she walks through the world. Salma’s motherhood and power, and Lauren’s connection and intelligence. Everybody came as themselves. Maybe there’s something to that, that the characters weren’t as far off [from ourselves]. I think there’s a secret that we don’t know that our director [Chloé Zhao] knows, because if you look at her films, she casts a lot of real people as their roles and it shapes her films.”
She continued: “You’d come out and everybody was so supportive of each other. You’d think that you’d walk out and say, ‘Oh, well, yes, I’m in my suit, it looks crazy.’ But everybody had a different feeling of, Look at our new family, look at all of us together.”
