Angelina Jolie believes U.S.-Russian relations are going well, despite the recent spy scandal.In her latest movie "Salt," Jolie plays a suspected Russian sleeper agent.

She was in Moscow Sunday for the Russian premiere.

The actress gave her opinion about the 10 Russian sleeper agents that were expelled from the U.S. in exchange for four Russians accused of spying for the west.

Jolie told reporters that people shouldn't focus on the negative issues behind the spy swap because what's happening between the two countries is progressing positively.

Fans waited hours in 35 degree Celsius (95 Fahrenheit) heat outside the theater to get a glimpse of the star.
