Angie as-Salt-ed by table

Comic Con is on at the moment. This is a huge US convention (as the name suggests) where geeks, fanatics and stalkers all gather together to worship at the feet of Hollywood stars, who are 'coptered in to plug their action films. Angelina appeared yesterday to speak about her new movie, Salt - which involved some dramatic stunts. Stunts which naturally, Angie did herself.

The actress told a starstruck Comic Con audience, that during one sequence which involved rolling into erm, a table, she came a little unstuck. 'I was bleeding and I have a little scar now. I couldn't hear everybody well, and I thought, 'Oh God, I've done it. I have a concussion.' But it turns out, I just still had my earplugs in, so I was fine.' Speaking about why she was tempted by an action role, Angie said, 'I love doing action, and I love doing dramatic films, and I've never really been able to combine them. Also there's something a little off about her, and maybe there's something a little off about me.'

She then added,'It was the first time I got to do something based in reality. This film is very much about your own personal line and I think it’s something we all have to come to terms with at some point in our life. I got to play with just about everything - including using a fire extinguisher in a way I'd never used it.'
