Angelina Jolie Interview For MTV News

Angelina Talks Action Movies and Rolling Around With Brad

Angelina's pregnancy may prevent her from walking the red carpets for her upcoming movie Wanted, but she did a few interviews in advance to help promote it. During the Cannes Film Festival, Angelina sat down with MTV News to dish about the movie and working with James McAvoy — but couldn't help incorporating her family into the conversation a little, too. Here's more:


  • On doing an action movie with James McAvoy in comparison to Brad Pitt: "Well, you know Brad was ... [Laughs] I'll always prefer rolling around on the floor with him than any other man. You know, in general."
  • On gunplay: "I mean, obviously, there's a part of me that takes the world of violence and death very seriously. However, when it comes to protection or when it comes to just the skill of shooting ... I've gone to the range with sniper rifles and things like that. Brad and I both like it a lot. That is something we have in common."
  • On making movies: " [It's] not the thing you love the most. I love being a mom and I do love traveling and the work I get to do with children in the field and with refugees. Brad and I take turns working. So instead of it being, 'I get to work next,' it's, 'You have to work next, because it's your turn. I'm staying home with the kids.'"

While we know gunplay is something literally close to Angelina's heart, with two more on the way we imagine it may be a little while before we see another big action movie from her. For now waiting to meet the two new Jolie-Pitts we're excited to see how her latest shoot 'em up flick fares on the big screen.
