In some reports the past week, there were some rumors about Angelina Jolie collapsing on the set of ‘Salt’. The report claimed that she was on some serious detox diet and was trying to lose 21 pounds in 21 days. And these reports, not surprisingly came only from unnamed sources and no confirmation was obtained from known sources or any representatives. The reports also said that the filming was too much for Angelina Jolie and she collapsed, and later complained of shortness of breath and dizziness. The report went on to say that, “To be fair, it was after she’d filmed a strenuous scene in which she ran around the set, but it was still shocking to see her crumble…there was something very wrong with her fitness levels if she couldn’t handle a couple of action scenes.”
Now a representative from Sony who is producing Salt has given a statement saying that no such thing happened in the New York City set, reports US magazine. She appeared to be in good health when she came on the Staten Island, New York set and was photographed in a fur poncho and a Russian hat.
Jolie plays Evelyn A. Salt, a CIA operative in the action thriller, Salt. She’s been working on this set from February in Washington and in New York. The film also stars Live Schreiber as Evelyn’s supervisor in the CIA’s office in Russia. The film is scheduled to open in 2010.
