Angelina Jolie pays tattoo tribute to Winston ChurchillJuly 7th, 2008 - 12:56 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, July 7 (ANI): Angelina Jolies latest tattoos have been inspired by none other than Sir Winston Churchill, Britains Prime Minister during World War II.
Two temporary tattoos that the actress sports on her arm for her new film Wanted, have words from the speech Churchill made during his first day of office in 1940.
The words are about assassins who are striving to make the world a better place, reports China Daily.
Jolie revealed: “We tried to focus the fake tattoos on themes that would be related to this sense of justice. I have Strength of Will in one language, and we added it in four other languages on my arm. From Churchill’s speech ‘We have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat,’ I had ‘Toil’ and ‘Tears’ put on my arms.”
The Oscar winner also revealed that this movie was very different from her rest as far as her tattoos were concerned, for it was the first time that she didnt have to conceal them with makeup.
“Instead of taking mine away, which we have to do in every film, we ended up leaving mine and adding more,” she added.
The pregnant star is currently in a hospital in France awaiting the birth of her twins with actor Brad Pitt. (ANI)
