Jolie: 'Something off' about me

Angelina Jolie has confessed she found it easy to get into the mindset of Evelyn Salt, the CIA agent she plays in her new action thriller.

"There's something a little off about her and there's still something off about me, so it seemed like a good match," she joked, speaking in the US.

The actress gets to put her stunt skills to the test in the film, playing an agent on the run after being labelled a Russian sleeper spy.

"There was a real duplicity to her personality and there's a part of her that's not necessarily a good guy - because of certain things that happen to her she's a bit damaged," she explained.

But, in real life, Angie admits she can't imagine keeping any secrets from her partner Brad Pitt and their six children.

"For me, the most interesting thing if you work with the CIA is that you can't share anything about your work or your life with your family or your friends, so you become this very lonely, isolated, miserable person that has a lot of secrets.

"It's a very unusual specific type of person that would do that and it's a very big sacrifice that these people make," she said.

Gemini:

A friend will tell you about a job opening at their company. This lead will turn into a dead end. Don't set your hopes on this possibility. Instead of looking for another job, concentrate on fulfilling your duties. Tempers are running high. The last thing you want is to catch the attention of an irritable superior. If someone does criticise your work, remain silent. These remarks may be terribly unfair, but defending yourself will only make the situation worse. Breathe deep. This, too, shall pass.More
