"She's somewhat hampered sometimes by having this gorgeous face, the most gorgeous face on the planet," Clint Eastwood said of the actress, according to People.
"But," he added, "she is a great talent, and it would be easy to overlook that, except after seeing this you realize that she is this great, talented person."
Jolie stars in Eastwood's upcoming film, The Changeling, about a 1920s woman who fights to find her son after a kidnapping. Her looks, however, don't seem to "hamper" this performance — or her suitability for the role.
