Odile Anjelou is a human character in the 2011 Smurfs movie who is an executive of Anjelou, a French cosmetics company, and the boss of Patrick Winslow. She is pompous, vain, tough, demanding, and incredibly controlling, earning her the derisive nickname "Cruella De Odile" by her employee Patrick.
In the movie, she had Patrick come up with a suitable advertising campaign for her company's latest product within two days, telling him to give her what she wants instead of what she asks for. She encountered Gargamel, who followed the Smurfs into New York City through the portal that opened in the Forbidden Falls during the blue moon, when she was testing out her one of her products on her mother, only for Gargamel to magically restore her mother's youth with a formula made from Smurf essence. Eager to get her hands on the formula, Odile took Gargamel out to lunch to offer whatever he wanted in exchange for the formula. However, as Gargamel was later captured by the police when chasing the Smurfs into FAO Schwarz, Odile never came into contact with him again.
During the Smurfs' brief stay with Patrick Winslow, he was inspired by the image of a blue moon to use that for the promotional campaign, only to second-guess himself and create a different image which he intended to send to Odile. Unfortunately, on the night that Patrick was supposed to send the other image to Odile through email, Clumsy Smurf accidentally caused the original design to be sent in its place, which ended up on electronic billboard displays the following day. Odile was displeased with the mix-up and warned Patrick to fix the mess or he's fired. However, during a promotional party she held on the night the Smurfs would open up the portal to return to their own time, she and her party guests witnessed the moon magically turning blue due to the spell cast upon it. It was from this that Odile had a change of heart about the promotional campaign and called Patrick to thank him for the idea.
Her character is played by Sofía Vergara. She was scheduled to appear in The Smurfs 2 and had a scene filmed, but was cut out of the final theatrical release, though the character does have a brief appearance talking to Gargamel in the novelization.
