“Literally, she gets every single script that has a female role aged between eighteen and 40—every script,” The director of The Tourist, Henckel von Donnersmarck confirmed. “And she just follows her feeling, holds her own counsel. She’s probably the only global megastar that doesn’t even have an agent—she doesn’t even have a publicist.”

The role she chose was for The Tourist and that too as a bridge between her previous movie and the next one. She wanted to work in between the two movies, just as a short change of pace. She admitted that right after Salt, she had to pick The Tourist because she needed a small piece of work before her movie with Brad Pitt. The Tourist became a vacation for her, enabling her to bring her family and still manage to shoot for a short interval of time.
