TAPS INTO HER INNER TIGRESS FOR KUNG FU PANDA

SNEAK PEEK!

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.
