In Kung Fu Panda, due out in June, Jolie is the voice of Tigress—a "heroic, noble warrior," says director John Stevenson. We asked Jolie (who has a tiger tattoo in real life) all about it.
ARE THE KIDS THE REASON YOU DO ANIMATED FILMS? That's a good excuse. But really, I'm a big kid.
WHY THIS ONE? There are some beautiful messages and a sweetness to it. I have two children from Asia, so the fact that I get to be in Kung Fu Panda, set in China, as a tiger, is very cool.
HOW'S JACK BLACK AS THE LEAD? He is silly and sweet and funny. I think he is perfect.
