Angelina Jolie takes on fiery new role in action-packed thriller
cool She’s played a tomb raider, a CIA agent, more than one assassin, and even a Scotland Yard detective.
Now, Angelina Jolie is taking on a fiery new role in Those Who Wish Me Dead, an action-packed thriller that also stars young Aussie actor Finn Little.
Speaking to entertainment presenter Brooke Boney, Jolie said she was immediately drawn to “complex” character Hannah — a smoke jumper haunted by a recent tragedy.
“(Hannah) is very imperfect but what I love about Taylor (Sheridan) is he writes strong women because he believes women are strong,” she said.
“Not because he is trying to make a statement, sometimes a woman being strong stands out as some unusual part of the film and in this film, you watch it and it is just what it is.
“Women are as strong as they are… We are maternal, we can also be broken, we can be unhinged, we can be brave, we can be frightened. We are many things.”
The mother-of-six also opened up to Brooke about her makeup routine, saying she often does her own looks for the red carpet.
“My make-up routine is stretched out,” she said.
“This is a girl thing.
“But when you have kids, you get up and I have three minutes. I have another two minutes. Then I come back.
“I’m all over the place. So yes, I’m pretty independent.”
Those Who Wish Me Dead is out on Thursday.
