Maxim Loves…Angelina Jolie Kicking Ass

The gorgeous action star turned director also enjoys taking names.

Angelina Jolie has been a staple in action films since 2001, when she snagged the role of Lara Croft, donned a skintight black onesie, and beat the hell out of some gargoyles. Obviously, she had us at the outfit – did we mention it was skintight – but after sitting through the flick a couple hundred times, it was clear that her action function was as impressive as her form. Since then, we’ve watched her kick ass in Salt, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and Wanted. We’re jealous of all those bruised-up baddies. We’d lean into that punch.
