Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. Between them, they've made 70 films. They own homes within an hour of each other in the south of France. And they both live with actors, which you'd think would expand their A-list circles further. But it wasn't until last November that the costars of The Tourist actually met. "We're both not that social," says Jolie. "I don't think either one of us goes out of our house, especially in France. We're both locked away." Adds Depp: "So much has been written about Angie and Brad. They're sort of the Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton of our era. I knew she was a...

Angelina Jolie looked a little pale at the Paris premiere of her action flick "Salt" on Tuesday. Speaking of salt, she kinda looks a little salty herself. Would 'old and crotchety' be going too far? Promoting films must be hard work!

No sign of Brad at the French premiere, but Angie says the couple makes sure to schedule "date nights" because she's convinced a little bit of romance will help hold their relationship together.

The actress carefully plans time away from their six children so they can be together as a couple - even if it only means sneaking off to another corner of their hous...

Angelina Jolie was on Good Morning America discussing an embarrassing injury she had while one the set of Salt. A scene called for Jolie to barge into a room sideways while shooting guns, then roll up onto her knees. Instead, Jolie hit her head on a desk, cutting her face.

Don't get your hopes up, guys. She's dating cameraman Miguel Medina from her reality show.

Last month a source told Life & Style magazine, "Things are going really well. They've been dating for a couple months. It's very serious. But this will definitely not be a part of the show. Kristin won't let her real private life be a part of the show."

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Salt,' 'Valhalla Rising,' & More

7/19/2010 10:20am EDT
I saw both the “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” and “Inception,” which premiered last week. Personally I thought “Inception” is the best movie that I have seen all year. “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” was fun, but in no way does it even reside on the same level of filmmaking. If you’re interested in reading my thoughts on each, check out my reviews here.

Angelina Jolie’s action thriller “Salt” arrives in theaters this week, as well as the dark age adventure “Valhalla Rising,” the dramedy “Life During Wartime,” the family film “Ramona and Beezus,” and the documentary “Countdown to Zero.”

Angelina Jolie was ostracized on the set of Salt while dressed as a female agent in drag - because the crew was too "freaked out" to socialize with her.

The Hollywood beauty plays a CIA officer on the run after being wrongly accused of working as a Russian spy in the upcoming action movie.

Her character dresses as a man to disguise herself and Jolie admits she was surprised her cross-dressing made her co-workers so uncomfortable.

She tells Reuters, "It was fascinating. The stunt guys I usually hung out talking to, didn't want to hang out with me. The girls didn't know how to respond.....
