There's no doubt that meeting Angelina Jolie
can be nerve-wracking – but her Wanted
costars say the superstar mom is incredibly down-to-earth.
"It's a little intimidating, someone like her who is presented as a goddess. [But] it takes, like, 30 seconds and you figure out she's just a cool woman," Wanted
actor Thomas Kretschmann said at the film's press day Monday.
The German actor, who plays an assassin in the action flick out June 27, also described Jolie as "a cool mommy."
Kretschmann's kids and the Jolie-Pitt youngsters "played together from time to time" on set, he said. "She knows exactly what she wants and she's extremely smart."
But Jolie isn't the only "cool" person in her household. Costar Common calls Brad Pitt
"a good dude."
"We hung out and he was a cool cat," said the rapper-turned-actor.
And Jolie? "She's an incredible mother, a beautiful mother," Common said. "She has so much realness to her."
