Angelina Jolie dismissed rumors to play Marilyn Monroe

Moreover, the actress said it’s the first time she hears this news and it is flattering to her. “It’s really funny because I have just heard about this for the first time today,” she said. “It’s news to me. I’m flattered I suppose.”

The actress also spoke about her new movie “Salt”, the plot, her character Evelyn Salt and the echoes related to her movie and the 10 people arrested for suspicion on spying for Russia. “It was all very, very strange how close it was,” Jolie said.”Somebody thought it was good marketing but hopefully it won’t affect our relationship with Russia.”

She added: “I did a lot of the stunts myself. I got a gash, a little scar right on the bridge of my nose but that was something very silly I did rolling into a table.”

Jolie said that she’s keen to make a Salt sequel:

“I’d love to do a sequel,” she said. “You never know if you’re going to get the chance, if audiences are going to love it. But particularly with this character, I think there is so much yet to explore in her life with her — with her family, with coming to terms with who she is in the end, because of the way it’s set up, she could be anybody.

“She could be in any country, she could speak any language, and so we have a lot of opportunities. “As an actress, and somebody who loves to travel, it would be nice to be able to explore the world with her.”

Angelina Jolie is deeply worried about the people of North Korea

Jolie has another connection to the Korean Peninsula due to her humanitarian work. “They spoke a lot about the concerns about people being persecuted when they are sent back,” she said. “I’m very concerned about the people.”

It seems that many people have migrated to China in recent years, but many are sent back due to an agreement between North Korea and China. “I learned today about them gaining citizenship and crossing into South Korea,” Angelina Jolie, who was also promoting her movie, told reporters. “The UNHCR practices quiet diplomacy in which they do more than they talk about.”

Former spies, invited to speak about terrorism and espionage, at the launch of “Salt”

Sony Studios, “Salt” producer, which will be released on Friday in US, invited four former spies in the central hall of the Espionage Museum in Washington, giving them the opportunity to tell the media some memories of their lives as spies and, for some, about their work as film consultants.

“Terrorism will be part of the XXI century, both in this country and in other countries. But let us not be overwhelmed by fear,” said Republican Tom Ridge, who was secretary of the U.S. Department for Homeland Security, during President George W. Bush mandate.

This meeting coincides with unprecedented scandal of the 10 Russian spies arrested in the U.S., which have been the subject of an exchange with Russia, to spy against Americans held prisoner in this country.

Below you’ll find some highlights from the press conference held in the Espionage Museum in Washington:

OLEG KALUGIN – ex-KGB Agent

“I never expected such a quick resolution of a major spy case. In my time when I was operational in the US we did have a couple of guys, on a very specific mission. But, [given] the number of people, it looked to me a waste of human resources, waste of money, waste of time. And in fact, contrary to the spirit of current Russian American relations, which indeed again is a good reminder that spies will always be around. Be watchful, be vigilant.”

MELISSA MAHLE – former CIA agent and Salt consultant

“When I look at this, I take an operational view and I say “what could this ring possibly have been here? What were they doing?” On the face of it, it doesn’t feel right. Not knowing anything more than what has been in the press, the question that I would ask is “That’s a tremendous investment, a seed operation, there had to be a greater purpose to this.” You know, assuming the Russian intelligence association remains the professional organization it has been. It’s really a challenge to embed somebody and have them become totally American and yet totally loyal to another government. We may never know what this was all about.”

TOM RIDGE – the first-ever head of Homeland Security

“It reminded me in a very profound way, of how we used to start every day at the White House, when we would wait outside the Oval Office. We spoke to the President every day, and his first briefing was with the CIA when they spun the globe and talked of the traditional threats. I’m sure the conversations were about China and Russia and Venezuela and Cuba and North Korea, and then we would go in and brief the President on terrorism. It is a reminder the perils of operating government in a democracy, in traditional rivals. The notion that we would spy on one another to secure information about aspirations, capabilities, etc. that still exists, that’s still very much a part of our world.”
