Actress Angelina Jolie has been grounded by the Federal Aviation Administration. The Maleficent actress was reportedly banned from flying her personal plane after she was late renewing its registration earlier this year.

According to FAA documents obtained on New York Post's website, the plane's "airworthiness" certificate expired on June 30 of this year. The Post reports that a renewal application was sent by Jolie's team, but a letter from FAA sent in September states that the application arrived too late.

Jolie's plane, a $360,000 Cirrus SR-22, is said to be one of the world's fastest single-engine aircraft. The 38-year-old star got her pilot's license in 2004, and has taken flying lessons on-and-off through the years.
