Angelina Talks Nude Scenes And Working While Pregnant

She may be no stranger to taking risks, but Angelina Jolie's latest accomplishment is making her blush. "I got a little shy," Angelina said Saturday, on the topic of seeing herself in a simulated nude scene for her new computer-animated movie Beowulf. "I was really surprised that I felt that exposed," Angie said at a press conference for the film in Los Angeles.

"There are certain moments where I felt actually shy – and called home, just to explain that the fun movie that I had done that was digital animation was, in fact, a little different than [what] we expected," she says. Angelina – who in her role as a temptress killer lizard is painted gold but animated without clothes – explains, "I didn't expect ourselves to come out as much. I didn't expect it to feel as real, and so because of especially the type of character I play, it was kind of funny at first." Asked which body part she likes the most, Angelina answered with a laugh, "I love my tail."

Worked While Pregnant
The PG-13-rated Beowulf, based on the Old English epic poem, opens November 16 and also stars Anthony Hopkins and John Malkovich. Directed by Robert Zemeckis (Who Killed Roger Rabbit, Forrest Gump and The Polar Express), it is actually Angelina's third animated film, after Shark Tale and Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow.

Angie said she completed her two-and-a-half days on Beowulf while carrying daughter Shiloh Nouvel, now 17 months. "I was three months pregnant," Angie said. "You wouldn't know. We did the mapping of my body before. It was a pleasure." As for balancing her movie career and family, Angelina said, "You just try to balance, and try not to work too much, and take turns [with your partner when it comes to] working."
