The things they say:

“Action movies, for me, have not just been about jumping around. I love to do that. But I tend to do them when I need to feel strong. So when my mother passed away, I did Wanted, because I thought, ‘I’m gonna cry and cover my head with a sheet, or I’m gonna do an action movie’. When I had the twins (in 2008) and I had been in a nightgown for months, I decided I would do Salt… I’m looking for one now, in fact.” Angelina Jolie uses action films as a boost to help her through difficult times. She separated from husband Brad Pitt last year (16).
