Angelina Jolie: My new passion is the Russian language

American actress, aged 35 years, taught Russian language for her role in the espionage thriller “Salt”.

Angelina Jolie took lessons from Russian director assistants, present on the sets, who also gave her homework.

“It’s a language that can be so tough and strong but sensual and beautiful. It was interesting for me to see how seductive that language can sometimes become. Some of her accent triggers a series of specific emotions,” says Angelina Jolie.

Angelina admitted, however, the difficulty in learning the language: “I needed more time. I often made incorrect pronunciation”.

Angelina Jolie, the main actress in the thriller “Salt”, directed by Phillip Noyce, plays an Interpol agent involving an American tourist in her quest to locate a criminal, her former lover. The film will be released in August.
