Jolie to Bond : Thanks but no Thanks!

Beware Agent 007, Salt is here and she doesn't want to be just another BOND GIRL.

Did you know that was once offered a role to become a Bond Girl? However, she turned it down. Knowing that James Bond is one of the most successful franchises in the world, what made Mrs. Pitt say ‘no’ to this role?

So to speak, Jolie doesn’t want to be the “Bond Girl”, sorry James Bond. According to Vanity Fair, Jolie turned down the role in one of the Bond to be released soon. The reason behind this? Well, .

“It started with a call from Amy [Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures]. She asked if I wanted to play a Bond girl. I said, ‘No, I’m not comfortable with that, but I would like to play Bond.’ We laughed, and then, about a year later, she called back and said, ‘I think I found it.’” Jolie mentioned in an interview with Vanity Fair

Her role in Salt is somehow the same with the role of James Bond. Both characters are fierce secret agents. Moreover, she is the female counterpart for Matt Damon’s Bourne, but (surprise, surprise!)Salt was originally written for Tom Cruise.

“You think it would be easy [to change],” Jolie says to Vanity Fair. “You just flip the character from Edwin to Edwina. But it was a lot trickier than we thought. For example, the male character had a child. And he knows he’ll be in danger much of the time. And we realized that, as a woman, if you knew your life was at risk, you’d never have a child. The physicality had to change too. I’m smaller than everybody, so how do I go up against a bunch of men without looking silly? How do I fight? We made her meaner than a guy, and dirty. She uses the walls, the fact that she’s lighter and can throw herself around. It’s the Chihuahua up against the big dogs.”

Salt opens in Theaters this July. If you enjoy the Mr. and Mrs. Smith sort of Angelina minus the Brad Pitt, and the Lara Croft styles of fighting, go to the nearest movie house and watch Salt.
