Modern-day icons with kick-ass fight moves and stunning model good looks, it’s a wonder Angelina Jolie isn’t compared to Sylvester Stallone more often.
Ok, well, maybe not a huge surprise, but director of The Expendables 2 Simon West, who has worked with both of the mega stars says they are “almost exactly the same” and we don’t even think he was joking.
Simon – who was at the Leicester Square premiere of the action film last night – also directed Angelina in 2001’s Tomb Raider where she played Lara Croft.
Asked about the similarities between Angelina and Rocky legend Sly, Simon told us: “They’re almost exactly the same – it’s uncanny.
“She was so driven and so hard on herself and brave and would do all the stunts herself and very skilful. She could hold her own with any of these guys.”
Sly joined his co-stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Jason Statham on the red carpet last night for the action film’s UK premiere.
Also present was Made in Chelsea’s Cheska Hull and TOWIE’s Mick Norcross.
Fastest man in the world Usain Bolt also made an appearance but was running late, so had to run down the red carpet at the last minute – no joke – to have a quick picture with his “fav actor” Jason, who also invited him to join the after party sponsored by Cîroc Vodka.
Maybe he doesn’t have a lot of time for movies with all the training…
Expendables 1 is available now on Netflix and Expendables 2 will be available on Netflix in the UK and Ireland in mid-2013, before its availability on TV.
