Angelina Jolie On Which ‘Salt’ Wig Her Children Liked Best & How ‘Love’ Helped Her Handle Hollywood’s ‘Knocks’

Angelina Jolie said her kids were thrilled with the changing looks she sported while filming upcoming thriller, “Salt.”

“When they visited set and they’d see me in the blonde or the black [wigs], they thought it was funny because my kids all have different hair color,” Angelina told Reuters in a new interview. “So it was fun for them, some days I’d look like one kid and some days I’d look like the other kid.”

But which “Salt” hairdo did her kids like the most?

“They actually liked it short,” Angelina revealed. “There’s a scene where I’m a boy, so they actually liked it short.”

In related news, Angelina told Parade.com that childhood gave her the tough shell she needed to handle Hollywood’s hard knocks.

“People are aware when others are breaking, but in this town they don’t tend to stop and help them. In the end, it costs a life. Part of the sadness in this business is that there are a lot of people in it looking for approval and love,” Angelina told Parade.com in new excerpts made available from a recent interview with the star. “I’m lucky because I was raised with so much love that I can take a lot of knocks and not take anything personally.”

The “Salt” star, whose new film opens on July 23, also opened up about looking back at her time in high school, telling the website that her younger years stand the test of time.

“I was actually quite a cool kid,” she said. “I was not tough. I was certainly independent and bold. I was never teased. I never had any trouble from anybody.”

The actress said, however, that just because she was “cool,” doesn’t mean life was simple.

“I was never satisfied. I had trouble sleeping. I didn’t really fit,” she said. “I always feel that I’m searching for something deeper, something more, more… You want to meet other people that challenge you with ideas or with power or with passion. I wanted to live very fully. I wanted to live many lives and explore many things.”
