Turns out, the man who refused casting a female Doctor has a problem writing for women.

I'm going with CIA Agent Evelyn Salt. SALT is far from Angelina's highest-rated or best films but it is my favorite of hers and its mainly because of the casting process. The character was originally written as a man and Tom Cruise was offered the part but they ultimately changed the name to Evelyn and gave it to Angelina. The character was left pretty much as is. The problem with many female-driven films is that the "strong female characters" end up being written sexualized fantasies of the men who write them. They run around scantily-clad even if it doesn't really make sense...this is one film where it's just Angelina being badass without the typical gender bias instead of running around in heels with a gun like Mr. and Mrs. Smith or cutoff shorts even though she is in a freakin' jungle like she does as Lara Croft in Tombraider. That is why Salt is my fav. of her strong female characters.
I liked her in Mr. and Mrs. Smith. She showed that women could be tough against men.
I'll go with her in Girl Interrupted. I haven't been a fan of all of her films, but she was so arresting in this.
I have to agree with you on Agent Evelyn Salt. I'm not a big fan of hers but I liked the role she played and I like that genre of movie. I am looking forward to Maleficient as I am a fan of Disney and she looks perfect for the part.
Great, everyone! Keep them coming!
I just saw Maleficent and she is
mesmerizing in it. The role was written for her. Best, by far!
I liked her in Girl, Interrupted. Haven't seen Maleficent, but it's on the list.
Jolie as MALEFICENT is, by far, the best. I saw her in IMAX tonight. She was great.
I spend all my allowance on these, but on Saturday they'll just give them away for FREE!
