And now the actress is keen to further cement the relationship by starring in a French film. Angelina, who has been studying the language for years, told a German magazine she would relish the opportunity to appear in a French-language production.
"When I can speak (the language), then maybe I'll audition for a French film," said the 33-year-old actress. "I truly am interested – more and more fantastic films are coming out of Europe."
The Changeling star added there is only one reason she hasn't already worked in Europe. "No one has asked me yet!" she admitted.
