It’s time to play “Address That Rumor” with Angelina Jolie!
Interviews with the Oscar winner don’t come along every day, and when you actually have the opportunity to chat with her, you’ve got to maximize your time. Thus, when MTV News sat down with Jolie in Paris while she was promoting “The Tourist,” we took the opportunity to throw out some rapid-fire questions about upcoming projects, persistent rumors and pop-culture preferences. OK, Angie, let’s get down to business!
Rumor has it that Brad Pitt is going to have a cameo in your directorial debut, a drama set during the Bosnian war. True or false?
Cryptic! Moving on: There’s another Jolie/Pitt rumor floating around the Web, this one that you guys will reunite onscreen for “The Tiger,” possibly directed by “Black Swan” helmer Darren Aronofsky. Yes or no?
Jolie: “I don’t really know much about that, but I love Darren Aronofsky.”
Fair enough. Christopher Nolan is hard at work on his third “Batman” film, “The Dark Knight Rises,” and the Internet has decided you’d be perfect to play Catwoman. Whatcha think?
Jolie: “I haven’t heard anything about it, but I thought they did it.”
Well, yes — once with Michelle Pfeiffer in Tim Burton’s “Batman Returns” and again with Halle Berry in 2004’s “Catwoman” — but never in Nolan’s version of the franchise.
Jolie: “I see. Thank you. Flattering.”
Enough with rumors, Miss Jolie. Let’s talk about leisure-time activities: Do you prefer “American Idol” or “The X Factor”?
Jolie: “I’m not really familiar with both. I would assume ’X Factor’? But I’m not sure what I’m saying!”
Oh, awkward. We promise we’re almost done! Lady Gaga or Kanye West?
Jolie: “Ask my kids!”
Lame! And finally, when it comes down to it, will you ever retire or will you act to the bitter end?
Jolie: “Retirement. Certainly not act to the bitter end. I’d like to think I’d do other things.”
Check out everything we’ve got on “The Tourist.”
