    James McAvoy praises Angelina Jolie

    Washington (ANI): James McAvoy has praised his 'Wanted' co-star Angelina Jolie, insisting that the best thing about the actress is that "she doesn't take herself too seriously." The Scottish actor revealed that he had fun working with the 'Tomb Raider' actress as she was completely down to earth and was untouched by pretence.

    While Jolie is a pro in action films, McAvoy said that her experience proved to be quite valuable to him, as he was still a novice in the genre. Speaking ahead of the film's release, the 'Atonement' actor said that a star as huge as Jolie was certainly a delight to work with.

    "The thing I most appreciated from Angelina was that she doesn't take herself too seriously. And she kept reminding us that if you can't have fun when you're making an action movie, you shouldn't be doing it," Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.

    In Wanted McAvoy plays Wesley Gibson, apathetic office worker whose life is transformed when he meets the enigmatic Fox, played by Jolie, who recruits him into The Fraternity, a secret society of assassins. In the course of his training, Wesley is subjected to a brutal beating from Fox, a scene that McAvoy admitted was fairly emasculating to shoot.

    "I don't think in the script for the fight scene that Wesley throws a punch but in the film he says 'I'm going to kick your f*****g ass' and swings for her. That was completely added because I felt so undermined!" he revealed.
