Angelina Jolie's new movie "Salt" premiered in Hollywood Monday night. The star spent more time with the fans than with the press, but she did stop to talk to Eyewitness News.When Angelina Jolie arrived with Brad Pitt for the premiere of her new movie, the cameras turned from the carpet to the street to watch fans enjoy meeting two of the biggest stars in the world strolling down Hollywood Boulevard.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt appeared together to support her new movie, "Salt."

Brad quickly snuck inside, telling me, "Sorry, George. I'm off tonight."

That's because this is Angelina's movie.

"Salt" is an adrenaline-filled action movie with Angelina's character, Evelyn Salt, working for the CIA. When she's accused of being a Russian spy, things get really wild.

Angelina proudly did her own stunts for this movie.

"Just a lot of hand-to-hand combat, but the jumping stuff, which was a lot of that, you just have to jump," said Angelina.

Asked how she made it through dangerous, high-rise apartment stunts, Angelina replied, "Fortunately, I'm not afraid of heights, so I like it. I actually do like it. I'm a little odd that way."

"We want to do our own stunts. But some people are very talented to do their own stunts -- Angie's one of them," said actor Jon Voight, Angelina's father. "But for a father, it's not easy to watch some of the stuff."

"Salt" is fast-paced, and keeps you guessing every step of the way.

"I like that, too. It was amazing," said "Salt" co-star Liev Schreiber. "It is just non-stop. It comes at you from every angle."

When the movie ends, you realize there's an opportunity for a "Salt" sequel.

"We've all spoken about maybe a sequel," said director Phillip Noyce. "But it's up to those guys out there to vote at the box office."

"Salt" opens Friday. It's rated PG-13.
