Angelina Jolie talks about her attraction to ‘Salt’

HollywoodNews.com: Angelina Jolie was attracted to the role as a double-agent in her latest thriller “Salt” as it offered a complex take on the private-public facets of humanity.

“There’s a part of us that has a private self,” the actress tells MTV News, “We also have these sides to us that maybe we think it’s not as much keeping secrets, but there’s that side that not everybody knows about you or things that you’re capable of that you haven’t yet explored, that you’re waiting to do when the opportunity arises.”

In “Salt,” Jolie plays a C.I.A. agent who is accused of being a Russian spy. She has no choice but to run.

“Maybe that’s why I liked it so much, getting to play this character,” adds Jolie, “I got to be all different people all the time. I think there is [a complex] element to all of us. That’s why we like espionage.”

“One of the strengths of the movie is one of the things people were initially scared about, which is you don’t know at times if you should root for or against her,” says producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, “The script does not follow conventional rules.”

“Salt,” a Sony release, bows on July 23.
