Academy award winner Angelina Jolie’ new movie Salt, action thriller film directed by Phillip Noyce, premiered Monday night in Hollywood.
Jolie and husband Brad Pitt arrived for the premiere which caused all cameras, from carpet to the streets, to turn towards them. She spent more time with the fans than with the press.
“Salt” is a PG 13 – adrenaline-filled action movie and Jolie plays Evelyn Salt, accused of being a Russian spy, KGB sleeper agent , on the run to try to clear her name.
The actress proudly did her own stunts for this movie.
“Just a lot of hand-to-hand combat, but the jumping stuff, which was a lot of that, you just have to jump,” said Jolie.
Asked how she made it through dangerous, high-rise apartment stunts, Angelina replied, “Fortunately, I’m not afraid of heights, so I like it. I actually do like it. I’m a little odd that way.”
“We want to do our own stunts. But some people are very talented to do their own stunts — Angie’s one of them,” said actor Jon Voight (Angelina’s father). “But for a father, it’s not easy to watch some of the stuff.”
“I like that, too. It was amazing,” said “Salt” co-star Live Schreiber. “It is just non-stop. It comes at you from every angle.”
When the movie ends, you realize there’s an opportunity for a “Salt” sequel.
“We’ve all spoken about maybe a sequel,” said director Phillip Noyce. “But it’s up to those guys out there to vote at the box office.”
