Angelina Jolie: “I Love Working With Brad”

After kicking butt in Tomb Raider and Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Angelina Jolie has proven that she can play the action game just as well as Hollywood’s A-list big boys. But with her latest thriller, Salt, she may prove that she can replace them, too.

The gorgeous mother-of-six shows off her back tattoos for EW and opens up about her latest role that was originally written for a man, if she’ll work with partner Brad Pitt again, and what motivates her to take on these action-packed flicks.

On if she’ll work with Brad again soon: “I love working with him. He’s my favorite actor to work with, and the only complicated thing is to find the right project.”

On why she takes on action flicks: “I had just had two babies, and the push to be physically strong was very welcomed at the time. The funny thing about having children is that now I am twice as motivated to do a cool stunt because my kids will like it.”

On changing the gender of the lead character in Salt: “I was simply looking for the best action script that was going around. Hopefully we’ve succeeded in making her more emotionally complex and physically meaner. We expect different things from men and from women, both emotionally and physically. For example, a man can have a character arc in which he discovers his heart at the end – that would never be a surprise for a woman.”

    Sort of off-topic: today I was babysitting my 19 months old niece and for a long time she wanted to be held up on the porch and watch the kids outside play.. it was SO hard to make her agree to go away from there and close the window… so it made me think of Angelina having to hold her kids at the porch every morning.. lol it’s a hard work!!! especially when they are already heavy at this age!

    Anyway, it would be great if she played with Brad in another movie 🙂

    Angie is stunning. She is strinkingly beautiful and feminine yet she is one of the very few actresses fit enough to do her own stunts. She pilots an airplane, she rides big bikes yet she can pull very some pretty good acting skills. She is still the sexiest yet all she seems to care about most are her children and her lover. For me she is an inspiration, she shows the world how a woman can have it all.
