Last night, half of Hollywood went to Grauman’s Chinese Theater to celebrate Angelina Jolie and her new spy thriller, Salt. And the guest of honor looked positively radiant with partner Brad Pitt on her arm. Jolie chose a simple, sexy beaded LBD (by Emporio Armani) paired with nude peep-toe Ferragamo pumps, while Pitt looked drop-dead and dashing in a three-piece suit by Tom Ford. Seeing them rock the red carpet, we realized how much we’ve missed these two! “I haven’t worked in over a year,” Jolie told In Style. “I had two babies, I’ve been in my nightgown. So it was nice to get out, get aggressive, and do some serious stunts [for the film].” And how does Brad feel about Angie’s action-heavy roles? “He likes it,” she said with a smile. “We met that way. When I’m home with the kids… I just feel like somebody’s mom. But when I am working I feel very empowered. I love both.” When asked about the rumors that her next powerful part will be Cleopatra, Jolie replied: “I would be honored. I am fascinated by her. I love history, I love that part of the world. But we haven’t gotten the script yet, so we’ll see.”

We know it’s serious news. But we’ll admit: The recent arrest of 11 members of a so-called Russian espionage ring—coupled with the somewhat breathless coverage of their assumed identities, their old-school tactics (invisible ink!), and even, in the case of “red-hot beauty” Anna Chapman, their coquettish Facebook pictures—got us thinking about some of our favorite stylish spies from film and television. Click through to check out our Top Ten.
Angelina Jolie is back in action with her sure-to-be summer blockbuster Salt. Playing a CIA officer who is accused of spying for the Russians, the athletic beauty unleashes her secret agent skills, from scaling walls to hijacking motorcycles, to avoid being caught. Liev Schreiber also stars as a fellow agent who helps Jolie unearth the truth. Salt hits theaters on July 23rd. Check out the trailer and a shot of Jolie in tough-girl mode after the jump.
