Angelina Jolie has revealed she would be up for starring in a follow-up to her latest spy thriller, Salt.

The Oscar-winning actress plays CIA officer Evelyn Salt in Phillip Noyce's film, which came about after she expressed her desire to play famous spy 007 and she would love to do it all over again.

"I hope so, for everybody - if they want to see more of Salt," she said at the monochrome carpet for the film's premiere at London's West End.

Angelina, who shimmered in a sequinned Amanda Wakeley gown at the film's UK debut, loved getting back into action after dramas such as Changeling and A Mighty Heart.

"I love doing action. I love to punch things, jump off things and shoot, so I'm lucky I got the job," she said.

"The other action films I did are based on fantasy while this character is based on reality so we had to make her tougher and meaner. Salt fights aggressively, in face-to-face combat. In some movies I've done, there's been a temptation - because I'm female - to make the action nice."

The film concerns Salt's identity, and in real life, Angelina said only her six children and partner Brad Pitt know the real Angelina.

"There is a part of me in every character I play. People know a lot about me but only my kids and Brad know me," she revealed.

:: Salt opens in cinemas on August 20.
