Hard to believe, but Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp had never met before working on their new film The Tourist. So how did these two superstars break the ice once they had their first face-to-face? No, not by talking about their bank accounts or award collections, but by sharing stories about their kids.
“We sat there and babbled about our kids, and it was a huge relief,” said Depp, who has two children with singer-actress Vanessa Paradis.
“I was pleasantly surprised that she has an incredibly perverse sense of humor. She’s a really cool broad,” the actor says of Jolie, who has her own brood of six that she is raising with Brad Pitt.
Jolie revealed that she was nervous to meet her co-star for the first time, but relaxed when she saw photos of him and Paradis together with their children in Depp’s Hollywood office.
“As I was waiting, I noticed these beautiful pictures,” she said.
“He’s an artist, and you feel that in any space he’s in. When he walked in, he was as interesting as I’d hoped he be.”
