Angelina Jolie on why she joined the cast Eternals:
That was the real reason why I wanted to make this movie. I wanted to be part of such a diverse family, and I didn’t care how much of a role I played in it. What surprised me the most about joining the MCU and working with Chloé was how grounded she was. When the cast first met, Chloé had bare feet and was sitting on the floor. It was during this first meeting that we discovered that we perceive ourselves as geeks and misfits, which brought us together and added another layer to the story Eternals. It is our quirks and differences that have become our superpowers. Chloé is also great at dividing attention – although she had to deal with a large, star-studded cast, she treated all of us with the same attention and care.
Eternals – premiere in November 2021.
