Fighting, running, driving and dangling from the outside of a 14-floor building? All in a day’s work for Angelina Jolie, who bosses on her latest movie, Salt, describe as “fearless.”
“She does almost all of her own stunts and she would do all of them if we let her,” Salt producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura told OK! at the movie’s L.A. premiere last night. “She is totally unafraid and I can’t believe how she is so fearless. She did one 14 stories up.”
Why was the mom-of-six cast for the role of Evelyn Salt, the CIA agent accused of a crime she hasn’t committed? “You needed a big movie star to pull this movie off. Angie has that zest for action,” said Lorenzo.
Meanwhile, the film’s director Philip Noyce — who said “Angelina astonishes me every single day” — revealed Brad Pitt almost performed a cameo in the movie, zooming along on one of his bikes.
“Brad didn’t try to get involved and once Angelina was talking about him doing a cameo on a motorcycle, but it’s good that he didn’t because that character gets knocked off of his cycle by Angelina.”
Apart from the constant physical activity in the movie, Angie’s co-star Liev Schreiber describes a family atmosphere on set. “It was the best, and the kids would come with us to set and all of our kids would come with us to set. It was great.”
And he let slip that his parnter Naomi Watts is about to take on an action movie of her own. “You will see her in that kind of role in two months.”
