Angelina Jolie to be part of Almodovar’s filmJanuary 16th, 2012 - 11:36 am ICT by IANS
Los Angeles, Jan 16 (IANS/EFE) Actress Angelina Jolie managed to get a promise from Spanish director Pedro Almodovar during an event in Los Angeles for directors competing for the Golden Globe for best foreign language film that he would include her in one of his future projects.
Jolie interrupted an interview she was doing at the entrance of Hollywood’s Egyptian Theatre to ask Almodovar, who was arriving, for a role in one of his future films.
“When are you going to give me a part? Someday?” Jolie asked the director of “Hable con ella” (2002).
“Don’t worry, you’re young,” a surprised Almodovar replied.
“But you promise that someday?” Jolie said.
“Yes, absolutely. This is a commitment in front of the cameras,” Almodovar said, reminding the actress that they met in Los Angeles when she had just finished “Girl, Interrupted” (1999) and he had released “Todo sobre mi madre” (1999).
Jolie and Almodovar won Oscars for those films, with the American actress garnering the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress and the Spanish director winning the Oscar for best foreign film.
“I love her,” Almodovar said later, adding that he was working on a project set in New York that could be filmed in the US in English if “the right script” can be found.
