Angelina Jolie was keen to work on 'Wanted' when she heard James McAvoy had been cast.

The 35-year-old beauty admits it was the casting of the Scottish actor which persuaded her to work on the project, because she though he was an "unusual" choice.

She said: "I was itching to do something that was physical because I had done some emotional films and I had been at home with the kids.

"I didn't know that there was anything original out there until I came across this script.

"Then I heard they were casting James McAvoy and I thought, 'That sounds really unusual.' Everyone thinks of him as this sweet, fun guy - which he is - but he's also from Scotland, and that's a tough place."

The Hollywood star also admits her character in the film, Fox, was "interesting" to her as she wasn't "having fun".

She said: "Fox is not easy to be around. She was interesting to me because she isn't the love interest and she isn't having fun. She's darker."
