Angelina Jolie's Fearless Stunts In 'Salt'

By Suparna Chakaraborthy

Unlike other actress, Angelina Jolie prefers doing her stunts in the movie, which she did in her new release 'Salt'. She admits that she"s fearless to the point of stupidity.


Angelina insists that her latest thriller 'Salt" has made her tough and fearless due to the various stunts she performed while filming for the movie.

Her stunts included jumping 30ft from a motorway bridge onto the roof of a truck and diving 60ft from a Black Hawk helicopter, bungee-style. She also edges out, in bare feet, on to the windowsill of a high-rise Manhattan building, 11 storeys up.

“Doing a few stunts is a great part of the job. It"s wonderful therapy. I wasn"t scared. I get a kick out of it. I love that kind of thing. But I am fearless to the point of stupidity sometimes. Maybe I should have a little more fear. Luckily I"m not scared of heights.

It was really high and, while I had a safety wire on, if I had fallen I would have dangled like a pendulum and whacked into the side of the building and it would have hurt. With the motorway sequence I did a lot of jumping on to the cars," she said.
