Angelina Jolie has made sure Sam Riley's grandfather had a brilliant 90th birthday by making sure her co-star got the day off, and sending a card.

The Maleficent actress won praise from co-star Sam for her caring attitude towards his family and said it had made his granddad's day.

He told E!: "It was my grandfather's 90th birthday while we were shooting and they changed the schedule so I could go home. She signed him a birthday card, which is pride of place in the kitchen. He shows it to everybody who comes around."

Sam added: "When my mum and dad came to visit she was so lovely with them that they floated back home. They're still telling everyone."

Elle Fanning, who also stars in the dark fairytale, said she had been in awe of Angelina: "I will not call her Angie. People on set were calling her Angie and I was like, 'What are you doing?' I still say her full name - Angelina!"

At the Maleficent premiere, Angelina revealed that 12-year-old son Maddox, who was on the red carpet too, now has a girlfriend.

She said: "He's dating, he's got a girlfriend. She's great. I won't embarrass him. She's lovely. She lives in England. She's very cool.

"We go there as often as possible. It's really, really sweet. She's a great lady, so I'm lucky. So far, we're doing good."
