Angelina Jolie, like most of us, was back to the work grind Monday, only her job is a tad different than anyone else’s: the A-lister was a bloody mess while filming the upcoming thriller Salt in New York City, during a scene in which she dangled from a Blackhawk helicopter like a Christmas ornament.
The gorgeous Oscar-winner plays the role of Evelyn Salt, a CIA agent accused of being a Russian spy. Tom Cruise was originally pegged for the lead role, but plans fell through. Producers reworked the storyline when Jolie, and her considerable box office drawing power, agreed to do the movie.
Salt, which also stars Liev Schriber and Zoe Lister Jones, hits theaters July 23.
