Angelina Jolie shows off her back tattoos on the cover of Entertainment Weekly and inside talks about her family and her role as a CIA agent in this summer’s ‘Salt.’
Angelina stars in Salt as CIA agent accused of being a Russian sleeper spy. The role, originally written for a man (Tom Cruise was previously attached to star), called for a lot of butt-kicking action. Stunt work is something the actress has taken pride in doing herself since the beginning of her career. It turns out, motherhood hadn’t scared her straight.
“I had just had two babies, and the push to be physically strong was very welcomed at the time,” she said. “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.”
Angelina also said she would like to do another movie with Brad Pitt at some point.
“I love working with him,” she said. “He’s my favorite actor to work with, and the only complicated thing is to find the right project.”
