Jolie wants to emulate Ford's action career

Angeline Jolie won't rule out starring in action films when she is older, hailing Harrison Ford as a perfect example of an ageing action hero.

The Hollywood star loves the physical side of filming for movies such as 'Mr and Mrs Smith' and 'Wanted', and hopes to be able to continue pursuing such roles when she is more mature.

She tells MTV.com: "I think there's always going to be that side of me. Harrison (Ford) is doing it, and he's doing it well, (so) it looks like I've got some more time."

Ford, 65, recently starred in 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' - the fourth installment of the adventure franchise - performing the majority of his stunts all himself.
