Tom Cruise And Angelina Jolie: Practically The Same Person

We were positively puzzled when we saw this headline on Variety.com: “Jolie replaces Cruise in ‘Salt’.” According to the article, Angelina Jolie may take on the title role in Edwin A. Salt, a film about “a CIA officer who is accused by a defector of being a Russian sleeper spy and must elude capture long enough to establish her innocence.” Tom Cruise had wanted to play the role for a long time, but when his interest faded, and Jolie expressed her enthusiasm and the studio decided to rewrite the screenplay with a female lead (the title will also be changed). Now, we didn’t think Angelina and Tom had anything in common, except for the fact that they’re both half of high-powered Hollywood couples, but upon further inspection, we found that the two may have been separated at birth.BIRTHDAY
