Angelina Jolie almost declined to do the role that brought her and
boyfriend Brad Pitt together, because she wasn't impressed with her character in
Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
The Girl Interrupted star reportedly didn't like her part much, and admits
she had to be convinced to take the role by her agent.
"I didn't think it was something I should (do). I didn't know what I was
looking for, but it wasn't something that obviously spoke to me,"
Tittletattle.com quoted her, as saying.
"I hadn't done comedy or that kind of action comedy romance (and) I didn't
think I was going to, but I had somebody who was close to me, who read
(the script) and said she thought it
was great. I trusted the opinion of some people around me who said, 'If you are
ever going to do a comedy, this is probably the best kind for you to get to do.
This is fun," she added.
According to the report, it was the prospect of being able to shoot the film in Los Angeles and spend time
quality time with her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, that eventually persuaded
Jolie to sign the deal.
