PARIS (Reuters Life!) - Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie has teamed up for the first time with Hollywood heartthrob Johnny Depp in "The Tourist."

The romantic action film, which opens worldwide on Friday, sees Depp's math teacher character falling for Jolie's femme fatale as she spins a web of mystery amid a backdrop of Paris and Venice.

Jolie, 35, spoke to Reuters about the film, her co-star Depp, and coping with her six kids in busy airports.

Q: Your character tells Johnny Depp 'Women don't like questions.' Do you see this forceful woman in yourself?

A: "I got out of my pajamas to come to work today, so maybe I seem more like her than I really am. You try to bring in to each character something you can relate to, but she's written in as a traditional femme fatale, but in fact she has a big heart."

Q: Have you ever been in a movie where you have to carry off as much elegance and wear so many beautiful dresses?

A: "No. It was fun for a while, but I was really happy when it was over to get into my slacks, T-shirts and boots and not be in hair and makeup."

Q: It must be tough being a tourist for you. Where's the strangest place you've been recognized?   Continued...
