Angelina Might Not Be Fully Sane, but Brad's Made Her a Better Person

Angelina Jolie greeted fans yesterday in San Diego before her appearance at Comic-Con promoting Salt, and afterward she headed to the airport to jet out of town. She attended a panel with costar Liev Schreiber — check out what she had to say about doing her own stunts. Angelina and Liev were also together earlier this week to attend the big LA premiere of their movie. Buzz found Angelina to be the most compelling part of their blockbuster, and we'll soon see how their project fares at the box office versus last weekend's champ, Inception. Angelina has done her fair share of press to promote their film, and she just revealed her fears about her children dating and learning to drive. In a new interview with USA Today, she spoke about not being totally sane and how Brad's made her a better person. Angelina said:

  • On what drew her to play Salt: "I loved that she wasn't completely good. There's something about that . . . Not to say that's me. But there's certainly a side of me that isn't completely . . . sane. Or completely 'even' all the time. We all have our dark sides."
  • On not reading her own press: "My evolution, and any extremes in my evolution, has been my personality, out of the nature of what's inside me. I'm very unaware of my public self. I don't read anything written about me. I don't look at magazines. I only watch the films and premieres if I have to. I still haven't seen some of my films. If you become aware of a public self, you're in danger of becoming a very artificial person."
  • On Brad's impact on her life: "He's definitely made me a better person. I've learned so much from him, as you do when you come together with another person. You both make each other better. You both learn about the best of each other, and recognize the things where you're failing, or where you need to step up. When it's a great partnership, you really are patient with each other. He's been a huge influence on me. In all ways, from my parenting to my art, to . . . everything."

To see more Angelina and read what she says about her real life, growing up with a famous parent, and being a female action star, just

.

  • On being a female action star: "I grew up with all the guy movies, but I didn't have the reference of a woman. Now I have daughters, and a part of me wants them to have that when they grow up."
  • On things being more complicated than they seem: "People tend to sum up times in your life and simplify. I would say there's a way of being bold when you're young that seems very brave . . . What's perceived as tough is a very funny thing. I think to be a parent is one of the scariest, boldest things to do, as opposed to, um, getting a tattoo . . . Much more than jumping into a pool when you're 20."
  • On growing up with a famous dad: "I grew up in front of everybody, really. The big years of exploration . . . I got married a few times before I actually got married. You do all these odd firsts before you actually do them in life . . . I was a mother in films many times before I was a mother."

I escaped the oppressive weather this afternoon and chucked over $13(!) to see Salt It's fun, propulsive, beefy action entertainment. It's only 90+ minutes and honestly, the filmmakers could have added an additional 10 minutes to film with little scenes to develop the characters and plot. Overall, it was satisfying. Angelina is ferocious in this movie. You'll know what I mean if you see it. There is no way that any other star could have played this role and made it convincing. Honestly, you can tell the script was originally written for a man instead of being tailor made for a woman because of the ruthlessness of Salt. She is cut from the same cloth as Denzel Washington's character from Man On Fire--a damaged anti-hero hero with nothing to lose. Some folks might not like seeing female stars playing such bada$$es, but I love a good female action movie--makes this girl feel strong and powerful.

Well said Ms. Smith. Well said. Popsugar is just as equally guilty by always posting stories about the other right next to each other.

For someone reason this is weird to me that she's posing with fans. I always feel like she's running away or never gives fans time! I like seeing this.

Angie looks beautiful! I wish I could have attended Comic-Con :( By the way, all your negative comments are unnecessary. You blame Angie for breaking Brad & Jen up, but have you ever considered the possibility that IT'S JEN'S FAULT! if only she would settle down and have family, then you all might stop bashing Angelina.

Yeah it must be hard on self-righteous women seeing a sinful woman succeed in life; with a strong career, loving family and a multitude of fans. So to justify this unholy situation you have to make yourself believe that she is unhappy and using drugs. Very funny.

she doesn't read anything and see her movies b/c the truth hurts and being a professional pretender puts you out there...she can ever leave Brad b/c people are waiting to say "this is what happens when you steal husbands and f*** married men" and she's got too much pride in that disgusting, bony little body of hers to let that happen...she's quite miserable and I laugh at all her verbal diarrhea and the need to prove life is wonderful with Brad...after the 5th time, you start to wonder who she's trying to convince??? I'd bet herself...I think she shoots up in her legs and toes, the veins in her arms must have collapsed by now

Stunning! I wish I was there at Comic-con too, Anya82. I could have seen her in person...plus I'm also very curious about who is going to play the role of Bruce Banner in The Avengers.
