Angelina Jolie has dismissed reports that she is poised to play iconic American actress Marilyn Monroe in a forthcoming blockbuster.
The Oscar-winning actress told Sky News the speculation is wide of the mark, as she appeared at the premiere of her new spy thriller Salt.
“It’s really funny because I have just heard about this for the first time today,” she said.
“It’s news to me. I’m flattered I suppose.”
Jolie’s latest action movie took £20m on its debut weekend in the US and looks set to do well in Europe.
