Angelina Jolie says she's a lousy liar and wouldn't make a good spy in real life.

Jolie plays a CIA operative who is accused of being a Russian spy in her upcoming movie "Salt."

In a recent interview with The Associated Press, Jolie confided: "I can keep a secret, but if pressed, I'm a bad liar."

Ordinarily, she said, she speaks with authority. But the actress admits that she'd probably "falter or stutter" if she told a fib and it would quickly be detected.

Jolie is better at fighting. When she was in school, Jolie said someone insulted a person she cared about and she let fists fly. After a couple of punches "it kind of ended there," she says.

"Salt" opens nationally on July 23.
