Being one of the most famous women in the world with paparazzi chasing you at every moment must be a difficult way to live your life but that's what Angelina Jolie must deal with.

I've interviewed her several times in the past, but I've never seen her more confident and happy than she was when I spoke to her in Washington, D.C. for her new movie, "Salt."

Jolie plays a CIA agent who goes on the run when a Soviet defector claims she is a Soviet agent.

The role was originally supposed to be played by Tom Cruise but Jolie talks about how she ended up in the lead.

Gino Salomone has loved movies and entertainment since he was a boy on Milwaukee's Northwest Side. He squinted from the glare of the movie lights that his family shot as a child, and his proudest high school accomplishment was a 30-minute "feature" he made for John Marshall High School.

He graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a degree in Mass Communication.

Salomone created a business called Rerun Reunions through which he booked personal appearances for actors from "Gilligan's Island," "The Brady Bunch," "MASH," and from "Saturday Night Live."

Salomone has one screen credit, the Lab Technician in "Naked Gun 2 1/2." He was cut out of two other movies. Hollywood has not called since.

He is also the movie critic for WISN-TV where his feature, "Gino Goes to the Movies" airs on the weekend newscasts. He also reviews movies for the Dave and Carole Show on 96.5 WKLH radio. His interviews have been used by E! as well as the TV Guide Channel.
