Angelina Jolie on Evelyn Salt: 'She's a bit damaged'

July 23, 2010 |  2:42 pm

Angie-at-comic-con The Angelina Jolie train has rolled right through San Diego, where the actress participated in a panel for her new flick "Salt" on Thursday at Comic-Con 2010.

Clad in a fitted leather jacket and black mini-dress, Jolie talked about the action flick that was originally written for Tom Cruise and then tweaked to suit her. 

"There's a part of her that's not necessarily a good guy, and because of certain things that happened to her, she's a bit damaged. She's not just heroic. She's not even. She's not just brave," Jolie said.

"There's something a little off about her, and maybe there's something off about me."

A Ministry source says that Jolie and her brood spent Wednesday evening at the swanky Hotel del Coronado (where Marilyn Monroe shot "Some Like It Hot") before trekking about five miles to the San Diego Convention Center for her appearance. 

Her partner Brad Pitt, who was rumored to be attending as well in support of his animated flick "Megamind," was a no-show. He's busy in Oakland filming his new movie, "Moneyball."

See video of the panel after the break.
