Who knew Angelina Jolie was such a Star Wars fan??
Angie was interviewing her Unbroken cast member Domhnall Gleeson for Interview magazine, and despite being forbidden from asking about his role in the upcoming The Force Awakens she HAD to prod!

The Mr. & Mrs. Smith star kept the talk very general, but she couldn't help herself.
Domhnall — who is brilliant in the recent sci-fi films Ex Machina and About Time — said that he was able to stay professional because he was "more of an Indiana Jones kid than a Star Wars kid."
Not Angie! She said even more than liking Indy — or Han Solo — she had a special place in her heart for another Star Wars scoundrel. She revealed:
"I'm personally a Boba Fett fan."
The bounty hunter from Empire Strikes Back that says almost nothing and never shows his face??
That's actually not too surprising now that we think about it. On the action film Wanted, Angie made the very rare actor move of asking for fewer lines because she wanted to be the strong silent type.

But Angie's love runs deep.
When Domhnall joked that he could probably get her a part in the franchise, she replied:
"Can Boba Fett have a missus? Well, put in a good word for me, then."
Wow! Without even seeing his face! That's admiration!
Angie will have to wait, like the rest of us, until Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes out December 18 to see if she has any new favorites.
