She transforms into opera singer Maria Callas for the biography of the iconic singer Maria.
And Angelina Jolie, 48, was spotted heading out on Sunday during a night shoot for the film on Aristotle Onassis’ yacht in Athens, with her son Maddox, 22, in tow. Her 19-year-old son Pax was also seen on set a few days earlier.
In diva style, she let her son, who she adopted in 2002 when he was seven months old, carry her Celine handbag while she wrapped herself in a padded jacket.
The next morning, Angelina landed to shoot alone on the yacht, where she warmly greeted the cast and crew on the ship.
The biopic Maria is a film, directed by Pablo Larraín, about the iconic opera singer Maria Callas that will follow her turbulent life and legacy.

Angelina will wear a range of real Callas clothes in the film, including vintage fur items from Massimo Cantini Parrini’s archive collection.
The previous evening, as she headed home from the shoot, Angelina still appeared to be in full costume from the set as she stepped off the ship with her son clutching a Gucci bag and wearing a baggy T-shirt.
Maddox is often seen with his other at official engagements and on set, having studied biochemistry at Yonsei University in Seoul, Korea, before returning home to complete the course remotely during the pandemic.
On Monday, Angelina dressed quietly in a loose-fitting black sweater with a large handbag and oversized sunglasses as she greeted the crew.
Maria, one of the most renowned and influential opera singers of the 20th century, died in 1977.
The artist was known for her incredible range on stage and her turbulent love life, which included a romance with Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, who later married Jackie Kennedy.
“I take responsibility for Maria’s life and legacy very seriously,” Angelina previously said in a statement. “I will give everything I can to meet the challenge.”

The Tomb Raider star also mentioned the film’s director, Pablo, whom she said she “long admired.”
The mother-of-six added: “It’s a dream to be able to tell more of Maria’s story with him, and with a script by Steven Knight.”
In a sneak preview of Angelina as Maria, the actress goes makeup-free and wears thick brown-rimmed glasses and a chunky knit as filming begins.
In another photo, the Mr And Mrs Smith star looks much more glamorous with winged eyeliner and a plush-trimmed coat with fur trim.
Jolie has played famous people before: in 1998 she played the role of tragic supermodel Gia Carangi in Gia and in 2007 she played the role of Mariana Pearl in the film A Mighty Heart.
The director, who is best known for biopics Jackie (about Jackie Kennedy, played by Natalie Portman) and Spencer (about Princess Diana, played by Kristen Stewart), said: “Having the opportunity to combine my two most deep and personal passions , film and opera, has been a long-awaited dream…
‘To do this with Angelina, an extremely courageous and curious artist, is a fascinating opportunity. A true gift.’
