Motherhood -- six kids and counting! -- hasn't dampened Angelina Jolie's thirst for action and danger.

The 34-year-old mom and beau to Brad Pitt tells Entertainment Weekly about making the action thriller Salt shortly after giving birth to twins Vivienne and Knox, 20 months.

"I had just had two babies, and the push to be physically strong was very welcomed at the time," she says of the role -- which was originally written for a man, with Tom Cruise once attached.

Jolie hasn't stopped doing the stuntwork that helped make her famous in action hits like the Tomb Raider movies and Mr. and Mrs. Smith, where she met Pitt. "The funny thing about having children," she admits, "is that now I am twice as motivated to do a cool stunt because my kids will like it."

In addition to the twins, Jolie and Pitt's swashbuckling brood includes Maddox, 8, Pax, 6, Zahara, 5 and Shiloh, 3.

Does she want to work with her man again? "I love working with him," she gushed. "He's my favorite actor to work with, and the only complicated thing is to find the right project."
