Jolie enjoyed Salt fight scenes

Angelina Jolie has said she was in her element filming action scenes in new thriller Salt.

"I'd done a lot of action movies but they were all based in fantasy in some way. This was the first time I got to do something based in reality and I think that makes all the action harder and softer and just a lot more fun," she explained.

"In most action films you have that one gun but in this one it's everybody taking everyone else's. I think I got to play with just about everything including a fire extinguisher in a way I had never used it," the actress laughed.

In the film the actress plays Salt, a CIA agent who's on the run after being labelled a Russian sleeper spy, and she revealed she's been left with a permanent scar from filming.

"Oddly I got injured in one of the most ridiculously easy scenes in the movie, I had to just jump into a door and shoot sideways while I roll on the ground.

"I rolled in to a desk and cracked my skull, it was bleeding and I have a little scar now on my head," she revealed.

At first Angelina even thought she'd lost her hearing in the accident.

"I actually thought that I had some problems because I couldn't hear anybody very well and I thought 'oh my god' but I'd forgotten I had my ear plugs in, I was fine!" she laughed.
