When Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp teamed up for The Tourist (in theaters Dec. 10), the two actors -- who had never met! -- had at least one thing in common: they're both hermits!

"We're both not that social," Jolie, 35, admits in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly (on stands Nov. 12). "I don't think either one of us goes out of our house, especially in France. We're both locked away."

And because Jolie and partner Brad Pitt prefer to stay away from the Hollywood scene, Depp, 47, said he looked forward to meeting his costar when they began production in February.

"So much has been written about Angie and Brad. They're sort of the Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton of our era," Depp said. "I knew she was a big star, but I didn't know what to expect."
