Angelina Jolie is one of the most beautiful women in the world, but her “perfect” looks have some critics complaining she’s all wrong for her latest role.
Schiff raved about the choice, telling USA Today, “Physically, she’s the perfect look.”
But some members of the African American community beg to differ — they are outraged by the casting decision and say Jolie is “too white” to play the Egyptian Queen.
“I don’t care how full Angelina Jolie‘s lips are, how many African children she adopts, or how bronzed her skin will become for the film,” Shirea Carroll wrote in an editorial for Essence.com.
“I firmly believe this role should have gone to a Black woman…What’s next? A biopic on Sojourner Truth played by Betty White?”
This isn’t the first time Jolie has found herself at the center of a debate about race in Hollywood.
