"Angelina was so into
the character. She says it's the closest to how she really is. She does sleep
with knives and she loves action. We were designing Lara's bedroom and she
said, 'Of course, we'll have an electric chair in the room.' I went, 'What?'
She said, 'I just want an electric chair.' I said, 'Okay.' I didn't ask why,
and I still don't know why!"

"Billy (Bob Thornton) got
electrocuted in a movie this year in The Man Who Wasn't There, so it was

"Filming in Iceland was quite
scary really. We had to drive about an hour and a half every day up to this

amphibious truck in the movie, one day it went 'bang,' and I leapt. It didn't
go down, but it was a nightmare - because if you do down you don't come back up
"I think this will be the
last film where everything you see in the movie is real. There are digitized
effects in it, but all the sets are real, all the robots are real, all the
locations are real. I think there are only one or two blue screen shots. It had
the feeling of a Cecil B. DeMille spectacle."
JOLIE: on working with her father, Jon Voight, in the movie.
"I think we were both nervous
for each other. But you forget that when you look into your parent's eyes and
they're feeling a lot of emotions because they really mean what they're saying
to you, and they're saying such beautiful things. Jon would hang out and watch
filming, and really not understand why it was necessary for me to be falling on
the ground (take after take)."
WEST: onthe terrible
track record videogames have had in the movies:
"On the one hand it's a
little worrying, but on the other hand you can't do any worse!"
